Favorite Limited Time Magic

A lot of them weren't very spectacular!lol

I did think some of them were very good.

My favorite was Mickey's America Streetbeat-it was EXTREMELY well done.

What was your fav?

We just happened to be there "Fairy Week." It didn't mean anything to most of us, but DD10 is a huge fan of the fairies and got to meet her favorite - Fawn. I have some fabulous photos and memories of the wonderful interaction she had. She would tell you it was the best Limited Time Magic event.

I would have loved to be there for Long Lost Friends, but at least we didn't get a dud like soup or something, LOL.

I was there in May for a Star Wars something or other. I did see the Star Wars themed fireworks at HS, and they were pretty awesome. I also carried over into the next week, but can't even remember what that was.

We only were able to attended the Secret Santa last week. If we would have been able to attend others I think we would have liked all of the "Special Characters" that were rolled out.

We were there for the Castle Suite and Beast Castle tours. A true dream come true! Definitely in my book the best limited time magic of the year!

Both times we were in the world, we got a spectacular new trolley show. I wish that the experiences weren't so limited.

However, I think that lots and lots of people enjoyed the villains event as well.

I think my favorite was the first Long Lost Friends week in the beginning of the year, especially since it seemed like a precursor of future fun LTM events.

I attended both the Star Wars May the 4th event and the Villains Friday the 13th event, and I thought they were both too crowded, especially the latter. My party and I were all extremely disappointed with the Villains event, and I'm so thankful we were staying at the Beach Club that weekend. Some of the tours sounded fun, but it's hard to make a two-hour trip on little notice, what with work and other responsibilities.

We loved May the Fourth Be With You. Crowded? Yes. But the dance party, M&Gs and fireworks were worth it.

I have to admit that I liked the LTM events at DLR better. I hit WDW when they were doing the shopping promotions (by mini-hats or something like that). At DLR, I was there when they had a AP LTM; AP holders got three extra hours one Thursday evening for rides like HMH, Pirates and Indy. I think I rode HMH five or more times in a row...it was great!

It was a fireworks show synced to Star Wars music. Think there was also an intro by Yoda, although I'm not totally sure if I'm remembering that accurately or not. We were on an Illuminations Cruise that evening, and the captain dropped us off at HS to see the fireworks. That was incredibly nice of him. Great evening all around.

We were there for it! It was WAAAAAY too crowded for us (we're normally late Sept. visitors for a reason!), but we really enjoyed the fireworks show. Like a PP said, it was a fireworks show at DHS that was all set and choreographed to Star Wars music

We were there for Valentines day and it was nice to see the princesses with their princes and to get a photo with Cinderella's carriage
