Does this mean there is no LTM is WDW next week? I hope not :-(

Philip on January 25th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

I chose Option #3.

3

Richard on January 25th, 2013 at 12:51 pm

I like 3…

Lori from NY on January 25th, 2013 at 1:13 pm

I love Option 1. Stylistically I notice a reference to Mary Blair, which just looks “disney” to me; the colors are happy – and I love the subtle Mickey ears over the zero!

Joyce on January 25th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

i picked the 1st option because i believe its the most solid. its got a harmonious color palette and pleasing freeform shapes (and a hidden mickey). i like the thought behind the second, with the underused roman numeral lettering filled in with different mickey character swatches (thats always cute to see- love the cones of M&M’s they sell in the parks in respective donald/goofy/etc colours) but i dont think spelling out ‘twenty fourteen’ or having entirely brick lettering cuts a nice silhouette. that issue is shared with option 3, but i like how that one at least has very few and very huge letters which is more eye-catching. also the stickering of emblems in the 14 probably speaks to retro-travel or sports fans. the kerning seems a bit close though on the 14 part, seems like the 1 and 4 should either be directly joined or have a bit more space between them.

but overall, i think the castle option – while maybe not the most original or trendiest design of the bunch – seems to be the best executed and will probably be the best received over a wide demographic.

Love Option 1.

What Joyce said, because no one could probably explain it better.

antoinetta on January 25th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

option 1

Joni on January 25th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Love #1! It’s just Disney. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a nice colorful design. I loved the Pink Castle on the 25 Year Anniversary shirt!!

mike on January 25th, 2013 at 3:38 pm

so this is the only limited time Magic for WDW?

11

Susan on January 25th, 2013 at 4:04 pm

Voted for 3, it represents all of the beloved attractions. 1 was very close in the running.

12

Emily from FL on January 25th, 2013 at 4:05 pm

Option 1 is Mary Blair-esque PERFECTION.

13

Judy from MA on January 25th, 2013 at 5:03 pm

I love option 2. Roman numerals are a natural with the MM at the start, and a total of five characters for 2014.

14

James on January 25th, 2013 at 5:18 pm

I’m voting for option 1. However, they’re all a little disappointing.

15

Joseph on January 25th, 2013 at 5:22 pm

Is there an option 4 ??? Aren’t too crazy about any of them

16

athena on January 25th, 2013 at 5:25 pm

Is this the only announcement for Limited Time Magic this week? I thought there were suppose to be announcements for what was happening in the parks. Kind of disappointed.

17

Jackie from WA on January 25th, 2013 at 6:18 pm

I love the first option! It reminds me of what the Castle would look like if you popped it right into the “it’s a small world” attraction! Love Mary Blair’s work!

18

Robert on January 25th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

The first option makes sense, since 2014 is the 50th anniversary of It’s A Small World.

I hadn’t thought of it when I voted for Option 2.

19

ht on January 25th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

Mary Blair all the way. Beautiful work!

20

Paul from CA on January 25th, 2013 at 8:28 pm

I voted for the first one, I don’t really like it all that much but it’s the best looking one out of the choices. A fourth choice would be nice.

21

Barbara on January 26th, 2013 at 12:45 am

Loved the fab five in Option 2 with the MM beginning but voted for Option 1. There is just so much joy in it!

22

JEANY on January 26th, 2013 at 9:14 am

I voted for the Castle because it’s has fireworks that I love!

23

Robin from MD on January 26th, 2013 at 9:58 am

I voted for #1 but have to say that I’m really disappointed because I will be in WDW during the week and won’t have a Limited Time Magic to “experience”. Although I guess this is Disney’s way of involving those that can’t make it to the parks, so that is a positive aspect.

24

Debbie on January 26th, 2013 at 10:19 am

I think they are all amazing but I really love option 3! I love that it has images and icons of so many places in the park!

25

Kimberly on January 26th, 2013 at 1:01 pm

Initially I was drawn to #1, but after giving it some thought, and thinking that this may be the logo on clothing for both men/women, boys/girls, I chose #3. I love that it reflects all the best attractions at WDW, and is also gender-neutral.

26

Darcey from FL on January 26th, 2013 at 1:38 pm

I love option 1, it’s so Disney. Very colorful and pleasing to the eye. Option 2 and 3 are too busy for me. When I look at one I see Disney. LOVE IT.

27

Zoe on January 26th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

To be honest, I’m not that keen on any of them. I guess they coincide with the theme they choose for 2014. I’m sure when I see the design on items I will think differently and grow to like the designs more.

28

Alison from CA on January 26th, 2013 at 2:44 pm

I like the cleverness of option 2 in which the Roman numerals represent the various iconic characters as well as layering the symbol MM for Mickey (or Minnie) Mouse. If I could vote for two options I would vote for #1 and #2. I don’t like that several of the logos repeat themselves in #3 across the 1 and 4; it also feels too crowded and flashy. Maybe having a squared-off logo with 2K 14 on top and bottom?

Ultimately, however, I voted for #1 because I would most likely purchase a t-shirt or mug with this logo (which is of course a win-win for both me and Disney!).

29

Kira from CA on January 26th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

Option 1 — same reasoning–very Mary Blair. Love! If I had to pick a second one, it’d be #2.

30

Douglas from MD on January 26th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

I think one is the best. The other two are under whelming in my opinion.

31

Danielle on January 26th, 2013 at 7:12 pm

First,-THANK YOU for letting “US” PARTICIPATE in your design selection! As just 1 of the many self-proclaimed “Disney-Super-Fans”,-I thought this was fun & just awesome!!!
-I chose Option #1,-I liked its “happy, bright, design”:) BUT,- I’d like to mention that I LOVED the use of ROMAN NUMERALS in “option 2″ & would REALLY LOVE to see them incorporated somehow into next years’ design regardless of which is chosen! I thought it was FABULOUS and “Different”,…I travel to WDW yearly, and have a great collection of “Mugs”, T-Shirts”, “Throws” etc. and I think the Roman Numerals would have REALLY “STOOD-OUT” amidst any merchandise collection…(I cannot recall a prior year when it was used before)-HOWEVER- I DIDN’T vote for design #2 because “something”, “turned me off” to it..I don’t know exactly what it was…And I’m struggling to articulate exactly what I’d like to say, or how I would have preferred the design,…I think it was the manner in which the “iconic symbols” were decorated, or drawn around the “letters”,…Or,Maybe if the “iconic symbols” could have been embellished using a different “pattern” of sorts?- I don’t know,but there was just something -”missing” per say from the overall visual appeal of #2.. BUT,-I REALLY would LOVE to see the ROMAN NUMERALS used somehow REGARDLESS of the FINAL design chosen!,-I hope there’s a way to incorporate it into design #1! :D I Can’t wait to see the end result regardless though!:)

32

Kate on January 26th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

I really love Option 1!! (Same reasoning as most others – Mary Blair and the hidden mickey!) Option 3 seems a bit cluttered and awkward to me, and while I really like the roman numerals in Option 2, the “Twenty Fourteen” kind of threw me off.

33

Bob on January 27th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

Option #3!

34

Deborah from TX on January 28th, 2013 at 10:43 am

I voted for #2, but I see what Danielle, in post #31, means. There’s something a little “off” and I think it’s the repeating of “twenty fourteen”. I think its unnecessary. The MMXIV is all you need. Without the “twenty fourteen”, you kind of have to think about it and it makes it “stick” with you and your mind kind of play with it. Also love #1. #3 is too busy as many have stated, and really, aren’t there enough iconic attractions not to have repeats?

35

CAROL on January 28th, 2013 at 11:57 am

of course option one anything with the castle people automatically know its disney, the others, you would figure out after looking at them but the castle just at a glance everyone knows who’s logo that is, no question.

36

Diane on January 28th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

I loved the 1st and 3rd choices. Thanks for letting us vote, it was an honor to be part of it…

37

Chris on January 28th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

Went for #1… But… Wish there was more to choose from. :-(

38

Sally from NC on January 28th, 2013 at 8:46 pm

I agree that there should be more options; none are that great, but I also feel that for t-shirts and such, the third option is the best for all ages/genders. It is different than anything done before either. The first one is too childish for all ages.

39

Angelica on January 28th, 2013 at 9:40 pm

I really like both 1 and 3, but I think for merchandising purposes that #1 would work a lot better.

40

Mary Ellen from PA on January 29th, 2013 at 9:12 am

I liked #1 and #3, but #1 absolutely says Disney to me – the castle could be any of many of Disney’s iconic castles (Cinderella’s or Sleeping Beauty’s) and reminds me of the entry logo to “The Magical World of Disney” from my childhood, the colors call to mind rides like Its a Small World, the hidden Mickey & the fireworks — I hope to add a pin like that to my collection next year for sure!

41

Kathryn from NV on January 29th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

I like option 2. I love the MM with the mickey and minnie designs and it’s clever and clean. If I had to pick a second choice, I would go for #1. It’s very Disney and cute but it seems like it has been done a lot!

42

Joyanne from NJ on January 29th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

Option #1 – the colors, the icon of the castle and of course Mary Blair.

43

Jindy from CA on January 31st, 2013 at 12:46 pm

I love option #1!

44

Clarissa on February 1st, 2013 at 4:28 am

option 1!

45

Jennifer from WA on February 17th, 2013 at 4:39 pm

Love Option 1! Would definitely like this in a shirt or hat
