AllEars has a nice summary of what's been done to date and any upcoming ones they know about: http://allears.net/tp/limited-time-magic.htm#future

Here's what they have on Future LTM:
Quote:
FUTURE LIMITED TIME MAGIC

JULY

Independence Week: It's red, white and blue as Disney Parks salutes America with a 4th of July Fireworks Party — for an entire week, with patriotic lighting bathing the Disney castles on both coasts. Mickey Mouse appears in his patriotic finest and guests will find special USA shirts, Ear Hats and other limited-edition souvenirs.

SEPTEMBER

Unleash the Villains: Friday the 13th in September 2013 is a special day, so Disneyland park and Disney's Hollywood Studios are staying open until the 13th hour (1 a.m.). Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar and other Disney Villains host a dance party, complete with limited-edition collectibles and other nighttime mischief.

DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED

Pirate Week: Why talk like a pirate one day when you could celebrate these scalawags all week long? The adventures of Jack Sparrow come to life like never before during a bicoastal buccaneer bash in which Disneyland and Walt Disney World become pirate-palooza: pirate bands, pirate meet-and-greets and more.

Dapper Dans Sing Boy Bands: The Dapper Dans, the iconic quartet from Main Street, U.S.A., will add a special finale to their show, claiming the title of the "Original Boy Band" and delivering a medley of hits from One Direction, *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.
If you're on Twitter, follow @WaltDisneyWorld. They announce new promo weeks there, and provide some coverage and updates once they're in progress.

Not anymore.

I assume it's to cut down on screaming.

LOL, I guess I'll just scream at my kids tonight instead. Although they probably won't get the whole "no soup for you" thing.

These events don't cost much to Disney ie they already have the lost friends costumes, Dapper Dans throw in some new songs, get the villain costumes out of the cupboard- they should throw these things in randomly every so often every year- great way to add a surprise to a guests day.
As a promotion- hyped up on New Years eve- not a great idea- especially after (as someone said) they had promotions like a year of a million dreams.
I like these idea of seeing these characters and it would be a great surprise. When I went to DLP I was excited to see some new faces- but in WDW I know I get Ariel here and Belle here- which is great- but surprises would be a fun addition.

Wow. I told a poster on another thread that he was coming down kind of hard on the complainers, but after reading this thread I see why.

Geez people. As PPs have said, you all are still going to WDW this year. If you don't like the product, vote with your dollars. IMHO, I think some of this stuff sounds like fun.

I wish we were going to be there for the villains! But we are there (sadly) the week after SWW- which we are all bummed about- but it's Disney, we'll get over it! Lol and back again mid July. So I guess we miss out on THAT magic!

I was under the impression LTM will act like a flash sale or pop-up store~if so I can't think it's a viable concept for Disney

I hate to say it but alot of people on these boards are major planners and plan almost every detail of their trip down to their potty breaks. God forbid they get a "limited time magic" week that they didn't want or get to plan for. I think some people just need to take a deep breath, be greatful that they even get to go to Disney, and be happy with what they get.

This is the crux of the problem with THIS particular promotion on THIS kind of board. There will be lots of angst and disappointment here for as long as this promotion runs.

I don't think anyone is all that upset about these lame LTM ideas, despite all the criticism. We're just calling it like we see it. It's not like anyone (that I've seen, anyway) is cancelling a trip or planning a trip based solely on LTM. So the "criticism of the criticism" is confusing.

I've been more often than not a Disney supporter on these boards. Many of the things people here on the DIS have been up in arms about recently - such as FP enforcement, CC holds for ADRs, FP+ specualtion, monorail hours reduction - I've been pretty much on Disney's side (and in the case of the CC holds for ADRs, I was probably THE biggest supporter of that during the monster thread about it on the restaurant board). That said, so far, LTM has been a big swing and a miss. It will have no effect on my plans for our upcoming trip in APril. It will be nice if there is something "Magical" (it's in their name for the promotion, afterall), during my time there that we can take advantage of and enjoy. If there isn't...no big deal. I'm fairly certain, though, that even the biggest Disney fans (and we know there are those on here who will never see anything wrong with anything the mouse does), have a hard time seeing logos and soup as "Magical".

Where's the like button? I wish I could be planning a trip to WDW right now, but I'm unemployed and have been for awhile.
