Did you notice this line of fine print at the bottom?

"Offerings and experiences are subject to change without notice."

Maybe they changed their minds. I was hoping for a little magic during our early Feb trip since several rides are closed for refurbishment. Most of the things they announced in advance were during times that were already busy like valentines day and Fourth of July when they usually have special fireworks, etc. I'll keep checking, but I feel a little bad for this week's guests if their extra magic is just opportunity to buy more merchandise. Course I am sure some who collect ear hats will be pleased!

Have to wait and see. I did take 52 weeks of limited time magic to mean something every week, but a lawyer I am not.

Katie

Maybe

Mm

Has anyone been following the #limitedtimemagic on Twitter? Disgruntled park goers make hilarious tweets.

So what's the big #LimitedTimeMagic celebration this week? Was it those benches spotted near Tomorrowland?

We were there this past week and happened to see the New Years party from the TTA. So decided to check it out. Ended up spending 4 hours there on that night dancing and having a good time. Went back on Saturday night for another 4 hours to end our vacation dancing with Elvis stitch and chip and dale. Didn't plan on doing this when we planned our vacation but enjoyed it so much that the kids hope they have something just as fun when we go back.

These cracked me up.

Apparently, Disney is taking the "Limited" part of Limited Time Magic very seriously.

Due to cutbacks, Disney is limiting this promotion.

Pie should be $3.14 on PI day. Just sayin... .

Maybe the cast member responsible for week 2 had the flu like me and stayed home? I don't mind so much, means I'll probably be all healthy by beginning of Feb for my trip.

This is very disappointing. I understand cutbacks, but this was a real opportunity to make money using theme weeks which require a minimum investment to draw more crowds. If they advertised that they were bringing back the Canadian pavilions beaver tails I'm sure a few more people would show up just to have them again. Really it's as simple as bringing back an old recipe or two, dusting off an old character costume, or posting children's drawings from local schools or hospitals. It doesn't take a huge investment to create some magic that will bring in crowds.

I was really looking forward to seeing some limited time magic on my vacation in 10 days, now I wonder if there will be any effort put in at all.
