First, it's the re-release of ear hats. Our boys are collectors and were very excited, but if it's just a re-release of old ear hats, that's not so great.

And I fully expected to check back each Friday and see something new. The fact that they didn't bother to update the limitedtimemagic.com website yesterday or even today is odd.

I don't even expect a promo every year, and I don't mind if limited time magic is just something really tiny each week. I think the whole idea is cute and I would have essentially bought whatever they sold. But to announce a promo and then not follow up is poor form.

I think that's really cute. As I mentioned in my post last week, I'll pretty much buy whatever they are selling and I think this idea is festive and fun. Our kids (especially our youngest) would get a kick out of it. Hoping for something similar the week of the 26th!

We'll be able to catch this our first day in the parks (fingers crossed). It sounds neat to me, but I can't help but hope that there will be something else the week of Jan. 21 because we won't be back in 2013 to experience any of the other stuff.

That's what i'm hoping for too... it would be nice to have that little extra magic for a trip that's already planned!

I'm pretty disappointed in this promotion. I just got back and didn't get to see the dance party because I wasn't in MK until the 6th and then there was nothing the rest of the week we were there...

I'd be disappointed too. That stinks.

OMG, I am so glad I am not there. We have snow all winter and I hate it. But I guess it is great for people that never see it and get to play in it. My poor dog has smelt like "wet dog" for the last few days, because we have been having a warm spell-38-40 degrees and the snow is melting. So I guess someone in my family loves the snow-because he sure does.

My friend is down there now, he ran the full marathon this morning! I texted him about the characters at Epcot starting tomorrow and he is going to go check it out! I told him he had to text me to tell me all about it


as for the long lost friends week, we arrive on the 24th so I'm excited to see who is actually going to be meeting and greeting. If Hercules and meg show up, I will lose my head! Jiminy and Pinocchio would be fun though. I've met them before, but I would love to see them again.
