Our affiliation with PARK NEWZ offers our readers world-class theme park coverage from deep inside the secret chambers of Orlando’s park management & design teams. Intense, Infallible, and in-your-face, PARK NEWZ is where rumors die and facts are born.
Limited Time Magic is the name of this year’s Walt Disney World promotional campaign, and it promises to “surprise and delight guests in fanciful and unexpected ways.” The key word in that sentence is unexpected as Disney hasn’t been giving much notice on what events are coming up. In fact, for some events and experiences, guests are only given a couple days notice! Thankfully the investigative staff at PARK NEWZ was able to penetrate the vaults of Disney World, scouring the utildors underneath the Magic Kingdom, and found the top secret location where the Limited Time Magic schedule was laid out. Today, at great expense, we expose the next six weeks of this unexpected promotional campaign.
Set your vacation schedule accordingly…
February 18 – Walt Disney on Ice, Literally
The Walt Disney World Resort knows that it’s cold for many of their Northern based guests, but nowhere is it colder than the cryogenic freezing chamber they’ve been keeping Walt Disney’s body in. But for one week they are unlocking the Disney archive’s vault, bringing out Walt Disney’s frozen body, and putting it on display at One Man’s Dream in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As Walt said himself, “all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue – or freeze – them.”
March 3 – Hunger Games: Trespassed Edition
Disney management has read the overwhelming online response to their recent trespassing of noted rabble rouser Adam The Woo. For one week at the Germany Pavilion in Epcot, the Walt Disney World Resort will host The Hunger Games, where 18 trespassed individuals will battle to death with the winner getting back into the good graces of Disney and having their Annual Pass reinstated. Guests may “sponsor” their favorite urban explorer with donations throughout the event. Potential gifts for your tribute may include one of the following: Duffy the Bear, a Disney Vinylmation (Mascot Series only), a Dole Whip, or a small scale version of the Haunted Mansion by Robert Olszewsk. May the odds be ever in your favor!
March 10 – Long Lost Plans Week
This week Disney is going to focus on the Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda plans that they just never came through on. Using the Wonders of Life Pavilion at Epcot, guests can walk through and see concept art for such never-delivered projects including: Hyperion Wharf, Flamingo Crossing, Beastly Kingdom and the Western River Expedition. If you look close enough and you may even catch a glimpse of James Cameron’s World of Avatar in there! This is the Disney that you always wanted but will never get!
March 17 – It’s the Little Orange Bird
CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP! To honor one of guest’s favorite little birds, the Walt Disney World Maintenance Department is going to work around the clock to guarantee that the Citrus Swirl machine at the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland will operate for a minimum of two hours per day, breaking the average daily running time by a full 45 minutes!
March 24 – Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
When it’s Easter time at the Walt Disney Resort, Peter Cottontail isn’t walking down the Bunny Trail, it’s the hilarious Roger Rabbit! And we know who framed Roger Rabbit… the Art of Disney Store at Downtown Disney! Guest will receive one 8×11 giclee print of Roger Rabbit in a gorgeous frame made out of 100% recycled plastic.
That’s it for this edition of Park Newz folks. Stay tuned for more sneak peaks at more Limited Time Magic events including: Cinderella’s Blogger Friend’s Royal Table Event (where guests of all ages can enjoy a magical dining experience with their favorite Disney online bloggers), The Voices of Liberty sing Gagnum Style, and Celebrate the Magic of Ticket Price Increases experience coming this summer!
