Maybe for the Long Lost Friends they will bring back the walk-around Dreamfinder with his Figment???!!!!!
I would love to know when and what the rest of those limited time things are. Some of them sound interesting, but I have to plan ahead for trips to Disney World.
1) I hate the name.
2) I hope they put out a calendar of these events well in advance.
Otherwise, I think it's ok.
I don't like the name "Limited Time Magic" at all ... it's awkward and somehow sounds negative to me. It also sounds like something you'd hear on an infommercial. Why not "Surprise Magic" or "Extra Magic" ... I don't know, something.
Some of the events sound pretty cool, I especially like the Villians Friday the 13th one and I'm really curious about what else they will do, but I don't see this as something that is going to generate alot of new bookings or anything....especially if they don't give notice of what will be happening when well ahead of time.
I agree that the name sounds a bit 'cheap' to me, as if you want to hold out for the best week and won't get something good if you don't go right then. If we weren't already booked to celebrate some special occasions then it wouldn't spark me to try and rush to get a good time to go. We'll just have to hope a good theme happens while we're down there.
Also, do you think they'll bring back the Diamond Horseshoe Revue at Disney World if there's enough interest since it says the Golden Horseshoe will return? We have a home movie of it from my first trip and it was a riot.
If they don't put out a schedule way ahead of time, then it's really only good for locals or those who can travel whenever they want. Those of us who have to plan & get vacations approved wouldn't be able to take advantage of those cool events.
I love it since I just moved local. Random events are always fun. The name is wretched though.
Competition to come up with a better one?
I think it sounds fun, andI like the surprise of what you may get. Unless your local, you go when you can. I think it would be cool to meet rare characters, etc, but I wouldn't revolve my vacation around it.
I just saw these will be the new t-shirts for sale ...
I agree that it sounds cheap and a bit slimey. No offense to the terrific sales people out there, but isn't the catch phrase "for a limited time only" only relegated to 3:00 a.m. infomercials these days? Are we to buy into this marketing scheme like the ShamWow or the Ronco Rotisserie?
sooo soo funny
At first it sounded like fun, spontaneous magic. Then after thinking about it it sounds very planned and if you are not there whenit is scheduled then you are up a creek without a wand. While I would love a little pixy dust magic during my trip next October, I am not expecting it to happen and I would travel to WDW whether there was a special magic week or not.
I'm excited about the Sept 13th villains thing and the long lost characters week. I do hope they give us some notice we non Floridians can make the plans to get there.
I'm just so sick of the word "magic" in ABSOULTELY EVERYTHING Disney does. Magic = Money
I am not a fan of the name either, but think the rare characters and villains thing is cool. I am disappointed that more isn't going on though. It looks like this is an after thought.
I thought so too, I mean, how long have we been "Celebrating" seems like they could have come up with something a little better...or put out more info, it has the potential to offer some more cool things like the villians one, but it doesn't seem like they have it all worked out yet. I'll be there the first week of March would love to see some limited magic.
I'm not crazy about the name either but after seeing the commercials that try to convey how short our children's childhood actually is I understand. I wish they would have come up with a better way to say it.
I would also like to see some type of schedule for the events. I would consider going during the villains week. I would like to visit in September and seeing all the villains would be a big plus for choosing that week!
