Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

...... a little pixie dust. They never promised anything big or out of this world. Just a little extra magic.

But that is exactly my point!!!!
They are taking every day happenings and putting a "Limited Time Magic" label on it! How is this in any way "limited" or "a little extra magic"?

How does taking what happens all the time and adding the title to it, make it "a little pixie dust"?
I'm not looking for huge or spectacular! But I am looking for extra!

They are having the Dapper Dans sing boy band music. That is new, and a little extra magic. I think it would be pretty neat to hear.

And I totally agree the we experience magic and those "special moments" every time we go!
But Disney is the one promoting something "extra" in calling it Limited Time Magic. And they have not delivered!
Having Dapper Dans sing is what they do every day! Just because they chose a different song does not make it special or "magical". I have heard them sing many times and they have many times sung something different and impromptu!
I still say Disney needs to take a hard look at this and either change it up and truly "make it magical" or throw in the towel and hope people just forget about it!
It has become an embarrassment.
We don't forget things very easily, lol. Think Pink Cake Castle.

I am STILL laughing about the soup! I do have to say I LOVE the idea of long lost friends, and honestly, I think if all they did was promise to re-release some long lost friends every week, people would be pretty happy. Like a Disney Afternoon Week, Dogs week (101 Dalmations, Lady & the Tramp, etc) or even just where you KNOW someone unique will show up that day, but not who. I think that would be fun and I can't think it would cost Disney a lot to dust off old costumes. I do agree this has been a let down, I feel like Disney dropped the ball as well, but I am still thrilled to be going this year!

Maybe someone in Marketing decided over looked and every day happenings needed some highlighting and recognition. It is not costing hardly anything extra, just using what is there. I think all the Disney money went to George Lucas, nothing is left over.

I made an extra trip for Long Lost Friends week. I know there are others who did the same. Disney got extra $ from me. Isn't that what a promo is supposed to do?

Soup. Nobody made an extra trip for that one. We happened to be there on our week vacation though. The soup was less than magical IMHO. However, I met Tweedle Dee&dum plus Yellow Rabbit that week. Way better than soup. Why didn't they promote that?

We also caught part of True Love week. We ere excited to meet the princes, but never found any of the special merchandise they advertised. So Disney missed an opportunity to get more $.

The point is that Disney built an ice castle in NYC. Yes, I expect more out of LTM. As stated, dusting off some old costumes would Not be expensive and would likely make them some more $.

Really starting to worry that Villains Bash is going to be a disappointment.

This is well stated, MrsDuck!

I really liked this idea when I heard about it on NYE. I thought it was ambitious to have something "new" every week, but if anyone could do it, it would be Disney. I say recycle the Long Lost Friends week for folks - there was great feedback on that week

Looks like Disney changed things up a bit......
Instead of something "new" .... Limited Time Magic... every week...
they are doing a 2+ month long LTM trolley show!?

Seriously??
all they did was give them new costumes..... which they desperately needed anyway! and put some nice flowers on the trolley.... to go right along with the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.

I love the singers and the trolley and look forward to watching them every trip. And it will be GREAT to see them in new costumes.
But.... seriously ..... to call it limited time magic??!!

I thought so too until I YouTubed it. My husband and I watched 5 different guests videos and all 5 of them were the exact same set. They did small little snippets of one Backstreet Boys song, one One Direction song, and one N'Sync song. It was cute, but if you were there all week and wanted to catch it multiple times it would've been boring to keep hearing the same thing over and over. The Disneyland one was the exact same thing too, but just a slightly different script for the banter before and after. I mean, c'mon Disney, I understand if you're trying to save money, but something like this could've had a lot more variety for not a lot of money.
