I AGREE!!!
SOOOOO Disappointed I can't round up a few of the "Faux Autograph cards" that were passed out by the CMs...Autistic son is really bummed not to have a chance to get those!
Hopefully they'll be around when we go this year.

Did they really spend that much on year of a million dreams? Doesn't strike me as an expensive promo. For all the great feedback that gets on DIS, we had two trips during that period and received NOTHING. Didn't care, mind you -- we don't go for whatever their annual promotion is
Same here.....
We didn't think it was that great a promotion... we got nothing!
It didn't matter ..... but for once it would be nice if everyone got something! No matter how small.
(maybe not every person... but at least every family that stayed at a Disney resort or something like that)

Soup.

Was this a special soup that would give magical powers to its tasters or allow them to fly?

I just can't get over soup as a promotion. I can just imagine my cousin in Kissimmee telling her family "I don't feel like cooking tonight. Let's go to Cosmic Ray's for dinner. They have soup! And only for a few days!"

I agree with others, people shouldn't expect any "extras" when they go to WDW, but having special soups to celebrate the Super Bowl is just really, really lame.

Lame! Best word to describe it, absolutely lame. They should rename it to Extremely limited and very LAME time magic... What's next? For the following week we will supplying all park bathrooms with double ply princess toilet paper and to top it off we will make the toilet water blue, as in Cinderella Blue...

I have to laugh at the number of people who seem to think they would be able to come up with something better, within budget, and implement it.

Its true - I'm sure its easier said than done. Still, they have had better ones . I think it would have been better to have one theme per month. The whole month of Feb. could have been "romance." They could have done lost friends for a whole month. And almost any one of us here on the Dis Boards could have come up with a better name . This promotion seems like an after thought which is unfathomable.

They have had better ones. I will admit to that. However, we don't know what decisions were made about this one. We don't know a budget. We don't know what they might have planned next year. We don't know any of the reasoning behind this.

What I am trying to say is that we are looking at this in a vacuum. As such, we can not make an educated and informed opinion about it. Yet so many here seem to think they could do better without knowing anything about the reasons behind the promotion.

Its what we do best . But you're right - I'm sure there's a lot of stuff we don't know.

They'll probably be selling "special, limited-edition" 5oz Diney Parks suncreen tubes for $44.00 a pop.

But if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck... Yeah, a lame one. It doesn't matter how big the duck's budget is, or what the duck might have up his feathers for next year, or the next millenium, or whatever. This is DISNEY. That in all their proven greatness, the best they could come up with is freakin' SOUP, is some exponent of lame/mind-boggling/unspeakably ridiculous.

I read in an early announcement that there would be a week celebrating Independence Day, along with the ones we already know about on Valentines Week and the Villains thing on September 13. Other than those three, there have been no announcements for any other week of the year more than a few days in advance.
