Limited Time Magic ..... just a huge disappointment!

Ok, who else is with me?
4 weeks into the year and I think Disney really dropped the proverbial ball here!!!!
This entire "Limited Time Magic" has been so LAME.... it's a joke!

Come on Disney!!!..... Really??? This is all you can come up with??!!?

I agree. How disappointing. It would have been MUCH better if they had just come up with 12 ideas, one for each month, to run all month long...this really just feels like they keep trying to pull something "limited" out of their proverbial butts each week. sigh. It's particularly disappointing to see them offer things they have every single year as a NEW special thing. We expect better Disney!

Exactly...one a month would have been great.

Or they could just do nothing. Why does every year need a promotion? I think Disney shot themselves in the foot on this by creating an expectation. And after The Year of a Million Dreams promotion. Everything after that is a giant let down.

However, it being only 4 weeks in, they could still pick up the ball they dropped and attempt to run with it. Time will tell.

This one was a clunker right from the get go based on name along. The "Limited" made it feel like you were somehow getting less magic if you weren't there during one of the promos. Lame.

I don't get it. What is the big deal about these things anyway? What do they do... a different show each year or something like that? I remember a time where they turned the castle into a giant cake, is this something similar?

I just go for the rides man....

I thought they were celebrating the year of the "Cleaning Lady" -is it me or does it seem the more Pete bashes her, the worse things get.

IMO that's what they've been doing so far... January's was long lost friends, which was the most appreciated an d February's seems to be love week.

The rest is all crap.

So, as I'm arriving the day love week is ending, I'm bound to getting crap.

I'll be there. That's all it matters!

I arrive Feb 5. Looks like my LTM is the opportunity to buy soup at Cosmic Rays. Yet they have Mulan and Mushu at DL. Boo! I wish Disney would just admit that they really missed the mark with this promotion.

Yes, but it would be really nice if they carried the one good idea on for the whole month. Even if they couldn't do it everyday, they could do it on weekends throughout the month, kinda like the Disneyland Bayou Bash/Mardi Gras deal. That'd be better than this! Seriously I am really beginning to feel that nothing extra would be much better than them trying to play off some of this "limited time magic" as a special perk to guests...LOGO week?! I mean COME ON! It's like they think we are all stupid!
