    I thought someone else would have posted a thread about this morning's blog from the Disney Parks Blog, but if there is another thread I didn't see it!

    Mary Jo -

    You know, I saw the title of that thread when I skimmed the forum, and looked at the first few words but had no clue that it had anything to do with the Parks Blog because I didn't get as far as seeing the link. And in the other thread that I saw, the title was about a Year of Surprises. I didn't see anything about the Limited Time Magic.

    rszdtrvl -

    This is certainly going to be a new way of drawing crowds to the parks!

    I'm not sure about the Dapper Dans singing boy band songs, but it's something new and different!

    I notice that the Villains thing is happening September 13th, a Friday. That's probably the day that Halloween Time would be starting at DLR (I'd assume), so I wonder if it will be incorporated into the Halloween Time festivities somehow. Either that, or maybe DLR will decide to start Halloween Time a bit later, like maybe September 16th or 20th or so.:confused3

    We got this email from DVC last week about today's Times Square event with hints about the ice sculptures ("a chilling event", nIce). But, we had no idea what it was going to be about. The day after I recieved the email, I tried some Internet searches but turned up nothing. Anyway, we took the kids out of school and they enjoyed the bit of Disney today.


    Greetings Disney Vacation Club Members,

    The Revue will be nice to see again.

    I kind of think I like the Pirate Week idea. I'm not opposed to it. Actually, I really don't mind any of the themes, with the exception of the questionable Dapper Dans/Boy Bands thing...but that could end up being hilarious so I will reserve judgment!

    I hope that there will still be some special Mardi Gras festivities as well.

    I personally am really happy about this. I am already booked for January and am going after the Christmas decorations are down so there is usually nothing going on. This will be something nice and maybe something to help my husband stop grumbling about how it is much more expensive this year is :)

    I think I like the idea in general because I am a fan of 'themes' anyway, and also for nostalgia (bringing back things that are long gone). I'm all for themed weeks, themed months, themed lands, themed weekends, whatever. So if DLR can pull out reasons to package up some of their offerings into themes, I'm all for it.

    Of course, it is an obvious attempt on their part to lure in more visitors, but I don't even mind that as long as they deliver the goods!

    One of our veteran local news anchormen in L.A. (5 p.m. news) just did a segment about Limited Time Magic, mentioning the different themes. He zeroed in on Long Lost Friends week, assuring us that we can meet rare Disney characters...such as "Clarabelle the Clown.":rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2:

    So excited to see the revue for the first time! I just wish it wasn't a temporary return.

    Can we somehow petition to get the Main Street Electrical Parade back for Long Lost Friends Week? And can we make that the week that I am there, please? :flower3:

    Oh, I suppose that could be asking too much. Boo. :sad:

    I hope they announce the dates soon so that we know if anything extra will be going on while we're there.
