The week after Christmas Day is historically a slow one on the Disney Parks Blog. But this year, we shared a big announcement – a first look at what’s to come with “Limited Time Magic.”

A year of unexpected surprises with an extra sprinkle of Pixie Dust at Disney Parks begins the first week in January at the Disneyland Resort with a special Three King’s Day celebration followed by a salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue. Erin has more details in her story.

And at the Walt Disney World Resort, our celebration of the New Year continues with Tomorrowland’s first ever “Bling in the New Year” dance party. We also announced that 2013 will be the “Year of the Ear” at Disney Parks with new limited-edition ear hat designs coming monthly. Check our earlier post for more information.

  • Hi,

    Are there any plans to make a Facebook page for Limited Time Magic for those of us who don’t do Twitter?

  • When I think of Disney, I go back to that feeling I would get on Christmas morning. That anticipation, hope, and unexplainable joy that beams from within to where breathing is literally a thought-process. I know that at a certain level it is a business, your job, a check, etc. However, if you focus on the magic, the illusion, the dream, it becomes a kind of heaven on earth. All I know is that it HAD to start from a place of the deepest love and faith and possibility of goodness in the world, because that message is still radiating from it today. People around me think it’s foolish that I spend my days dreaming of my return through the gates, that I spend all of my savings to go back every chance that I get, and that my biggest wish in life is to take my children there now (we just adopted 3!); but to me, life is about believing that the little things matter, believing that the dreams you wish WILL come true, and choosing to see the magic above the business. It IS a small world after-all, but it’s perfect. I am so jealous that you get to be a part of it as much as you do 🙂 Keep posting pictures, you take me back!

  • will there be anything for haunted mansion or tower of terror in the year 2013
