I don't care if they do something I want, I would just like to know what they are even going to do during my trip that is only two weeks away. If it's nothing I'm fine with that also. Just post some information.

We feel the same way. I mean people are literally complaining they don't like the extra stuff! The Canada pavilion was amazing for our friends and their little one. Yet plenty of people couldn't wait to say how stupid it was to make it snow, and have the big cheese and co in their cute outfits. Can anyone hear how ungrateful and childish they sound? It's an Extra promotion! Idk to me it's just bizarre to complain about a lot of things people complain about on here. We practice daily gratitude in our family, and it's a beautiful thing.

I agree with this.

Most of us planned our trips before the promotion was announced, and well before the actual weekly LTM.... it's just extra.

An extra sprinkling of pixie dust as I've heard it called.

I hear ya! I completely agree with you, too! I am super glad to be on my Disney Vacation and I am definitely not going to nit-pick! That would be miserable, and I am the opposite of that! I love my Disney vacations! They always turn out awesome!!

I'm sorry, but most of the time i have the rose colored glasses on, but this is really lame.

I think that Disney has created such an image of itself, being the best in customer satisfaction and all, that they are struggling to keep that image. Or, i guess i should say that they are resting on their laurels of the reputation they've achieved over the years, but slacking in so many ways now buy taking back things that used to be the norm back then, creating "special experiences" that at one time was the norm for them. Yet at the same time, increasing thier prices in so many areas and continuing to cut in many others.

For this reason, i can see everyone up in arms... it's not that people feel entitled, its that Disney is not holding up to the standards they once had.

You're just adding more "reasoning" for ungrateful behavior. Stop it. You truly think this promotion is cause for "everyone" to be "up in arms"?

I am going a few weeks after the Valentine LTM and you know what, i'm happy that i can go and take my kids again and spend time with my family, bc let's face it, that is what a vacation is for.Not every family has the chance to go even once in their lifetime.

If your that upset that your not gonna get something extra on your vacation, then maybe Disney is not the parks for you any longer.

Please get over yourself and your self entitlement.

Sorry. So far I'm not grateful for anything WDW has offered in this highly hyped promotion (except maybe the long lost characters), not that I am required to be. Vote for a logo, geez. they could have done that without making it part of the promotion. It feels cheap.

If you're not interested in the offering you don't have to take part in it. I've been there for two and didn't take part in either (didn't vote for the logo either). But DISNEY created the high expectations.

This! Disney made such a huge deal about all these "limited" events but some of them are terrible. Most of the "limited edition ears" have been available in the past when the original released claimed they were limited release, never seen before People have them already, some of them have been available FOR YEARS!

Perhaps "up in arms" was a bad phrase to use. And I am grateful for the opportunities we have in being there. If you look at the majority of my posts, they are all positive Disney. I was just stating a fact that many have noticed... That's all.

All I hear is more whining and complaining that things aren't good enough. It's a good thing everyone has a different opinion! Some people actually like the ear hats. Some people actually like the other offerings, as I previously mentioned. If you don't like it, great. But the excess energy being used towards expressing disappointment in an extra promotion is just mind boggling to me.

The difference is, I like many of the ears. I would buy them if I saw them. Not because they are "limited edition" but simply because I like them. What I find disappointing and frustrating is that Disney made a huge deal about them being "limited edition", ears ONLY available at certain parks, ears only available for a short period each month when that is completely not true. Why make it sound more than what it is?

"Year Of A Million Dreams" seems to have been a universally loved promotion. We were there that year and loved joking about whether this would be the day we finally got the tap on the shoulder to stay in the castle. I joked about how we needed to keep our bags organized so we could have them taken to the castle on a moment's notice. We loved looking around the parks for the Dream Squad. We never received a single thing during this promtion. No ears, no fastpasses, no night in the castle. But we still loved it. We still got to enjoy it.

I'm not a fan of Limited Time Magic even though the end result will likely be the same. Why? Because during the YOMD we could hope to be part of it, we could anticipate being part of it. With LTM all we get to do is sit back and hear about one thing after another we know with certainty we won't get to experience.

Would you be against Disney posting up a little more information about the events in a timely manner? Like I said, I'm less than 2 weeks out and there is nothing.
