Disney Parks declared 2013 the year of “Limited Time Magic” – where throughout the year, Walt Disney World and Disneyland would offer special events and celebrations that would only last a day to a week.
Walt Disney World attendees got to enjoy events like Unleash the Villains at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Long Lost Friends week at Magic Kingdom, Monstrous Summer with a 24-hour day at Magic Kingdom, Teen Beach Movie at Typhoon Lagoon, and so much more.
Disney put together this video showcasing highlights from Limited Time Magic at both parks to recap the year. Did you get to enjoy any of these?
If you’re out and about at Walt Disney World this week, there will be special Thanksgiving treats and sweets available as part of the Limited Time Magic promotion.
From now until December 1, enjoy the following items for purchase throughout the parks:
Magic Kingdom Park
- Tony’s Town Square – pumpkin soup with cinnamon crème fraîche, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin gelato, pumpkin cheesecake
- Sleepy Hollow – spiced pumpkin waffle sundae
- Main Street Bakery – seasonal Starbucks selections
Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The Diamond Horseshoe Saloon at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will be transformed for Halloween into The Happy Haunted Horseshoe during Limited Time Magic October 28 through November 1.
From 11am to 3pm each day, guests can enjoy haunting harmonies from the Cadaver Dans, the piano-playing Dearly Departed Stan and everyone’s favorite morbid magician, Abner Cadaver.
This event is included with regular park admission.
The Downtown Disney Chalk Art Festival will run October 4-6, as part of Walt Disney World’s Limited Time Magic promotion.
For those three days, chalk artists will construct 3-D art out of flat concrete surfaces.
Along with seeing the three-dimensional chalk art, artist Greg McCullough will be appearing October 2 – 6, throughout the day at Art of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace, celebrating the release of some of the newest pieces in his collection. He will be there from 1-5pm and from 6-10pm each day.
The event is free to attend.
Shiver me timbers! Walt Disney World will be bringing Pirate’s Week to Magic Kingdom from September 23 to September 29.
It’s part of the park’s Limited Time Magic promotion, and is inspired by this week’s “Talk Like a Pirate Day.”
There will be a special pirate pre-show before the daily “Celebrate a Dream Come True” parade, and The Rusty Cutlass pirate band will regale the crowds with tunes from the high seas. You’ll even have a chance to meet Pirate Goofy and Jake from Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
Also for Pirate week, The Pirates League at Magic Kingdom Park will have a mini-makeovers available for adults, called Skulls and Skurry. And from September 23 to September 29, while supplies last, you will receive complimentary pirate teeth to complete your look, if you take part in a transformation at The Pirates League (kids and adults). You can make reservations now by calling 407-939-2739.
Pirate’s Week events are included with regular park admission.
