You may remember that a few months I posted a blog regarding a new program that Disney would be implementing in 2013. It is called “Limited Time Magic” and word will be spread about the current promotions or events through Facebook and other social media platforms.
Starting on January 21st, they will be having “Long Lost Friends Week” where some old characters will be out for character Meet and Greets. Right now they have announced that Friar Tuck, Robin Hood, Clarabelle Cow, The Three Little Pigs and Horace Horsecollar will be some of special characters around the 4 theme parks this coming week. As the date gets closer, they will update their Facebook page to tell you who will be where and when. To “like” Limited Time Magic on Facebook, click here.
See you there!
