I certainly don't go for the special weeks but if Disney says they're doing 52 weeks of special things, I expect that they'll do it. That's why everyone is so upset. It's not really because we care so much about the weeks themselves but the fact that Disney really has dropped the ball.

What's more common on DIS:

1) Limited Time Magic is the worst promotion ever

2) Disney stinks for not releasing planned LTM promotions sooner so that I can plan my trip around them

Probably 1)?


One thing that both camps might be able to agree with, posted on Twitter by @WDWNT today:

#limitedtimemagic The entire Disney online community whining. Unfortunately, this isn't for a limited time...


Gotta' love online "discussions"...

I agree.

Absolutely.

Heck, we ARE going during the love week thing, and it's bumming me out. Why? Because we have a meal at Brown Derby on the 14th, then a late tea, and we kinda thought "hey, that will be fun, I wonder if they'll do anything sweet considering it's the 14th". Well now since BD will have fixed price dinners that night, will they even SAY anything, at lunchtime? Doubt it. Not even an "aw, Happy Valentine's Day". (which normally I don't really care about but it just fell nicely into the plan and I figured "why not" since DH and DS do love Valentine's Day) Because they would be saving themselves for the REAL offerings later on.

And, by the way, releasing the info about it so late in the game means...HOW many people trying to make ADRs that evening were denied, because they were secretly holding back time slots for the promotion?

Then again, someone who called the day after it was announced was unable to book anything since the phone CMs didn't know about the promotion.

So I hear mention of soup and I think, "that's right, limited time magic for our week of Feb 4-9 should be announced today, I wonder what's this mention of soup, maybe it's a euphanism for something." So I go and check it out and no....our magic is soup. And a special pre-parade sort of thing that ends the day before we arrive. And soup. Good thing I kept my expectations nice and low.

So, I guess it's...

...well it'd be *slightly* more magical if it was FREE soup...but no, we have to pay (big bucks I'm sure based on the mention of lobster bisque!) for our "magical" soup.....watch out folks, the soup is probably "limited" (in quantity) too.

I never saw this as a major promotion in the first place. I didn't think of it as 2013's version of "YoaMD" or "100 Years of Magic". I just thought of it as a small extra add-on that was better than nothing.

I just came home last night, and this week there wasn't *any* special event. No harm done. We got the last couple days of "long lost friends", but I don't think I ever saw them. (Had Esmeralda been among them, I might have made more of an effort.)

So I guess the answer is no - I'm not disappointed, because I never saw it as a big deal to start with.

For our trip on Feb. 24th-27th we currently have limited time nothing. I'm so looking forward to that. So, for those of you with soup you should be happy.

It really does look like a super lame promotion. Sadly I had high hopes for it when they announced it.

Every time I look at the page I keep seeing DW get the shaft over DL. Someone has really dropped the ball on this one.

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

I'll be there the same week as you, and I was kind of thinking the same thing. Love week ens when I get there, so I guess I won't be "feeling the love" the week I am there. Oh well- being there is ALWAYS better than being at home in the snow and cold! Let my own week of Limited Time Magic begin- I'm there, I'll enjoy it!

Me either. It is not as if they have been running ads on tv saying Limited Time Magic, Watch What We Come Up With!!! People are victims of their own huge expectations.

For me, being at WDW is enough. I don't need them to add anything else extra to make my trip special.
