When Bert joins Mary Poppins this week at Epcot for her Limited Time Magic meet and greets (December 16-22) she will wear her White “Jolly Holiday” dress.  If the weather turns cold, like tonight she may have some special outer wear with the costume, but will NOT be wearing Nanny Poppins at all at Epcot.

Meet and greet times:

  • 12:00 PM – 12:35 PM
  • 01:00 PM – 01:40 PM
  • 02:00 PM – 02:40 PM
  • 03:50 PM – 04:30 PM
  • 04:50 PM – 05:30 PM
  • 05:50 PM – 06:30 PM

She does however still occasionally wear the Nanny costume at the Magic Kingdom on cold mornings and still has it available at 1900 Park Fare.

Limited Time Magic: Unleash the Villains. What happens when you unleash them?

Disney Parks promoted the “Unleash the Villains” night almost a year ago, yet they were thoroughly unprepared for the crowds that descended on both Disneyland and Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World and the front line Cast Members would have to bare the brunt of the storm of anger that ensued once the Villains were unleashed.  I guess we should know that taking a villain off his leash would create chaos, right?  When the hosts are the leader of hell and his compatriots, one should expect Pain and Panic among the guests.

Video and Photos: Villany in the Sky Unleash the Villains Fireworks Hollywood Studios Friday the 13th 2013

Here’s a video I took of the Villany in the Sky Fireworks that were part of the Unleash the Villains Limited Time Magic Event at Hollywood Studios on Friday the 13th, 2013.  It was an amazing 8 minute fireworks barrage!  Certainly one of the highest points of an otherwise chaotic night.  I’ll explain that comment in the next post that discusses the character meet and greets.  The video was filmed between American Idol and the bemoaned Sorcerers Hat.

I shot that video and took these photos at the same time with my Sony RX 100 and didn’t use a tripod.  I was merely holding the camera in my hands.  I’m still impressed with this little camera’s capability to take photos and video.  These photos weren’t edited.  Click on any photo for a larger view.

Limited Time Magic: Friday the 13th Unleash the Villains event

Unleash the VillainsDisney’s dastardly villains are ready to unleash some Limited Time Magic at Disney Parks on September 13 — Friday the 13th..

Both Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort will stay open until the 13th Hour (1 a.m.).  To celebrate the momentous evening, notorious Disney villains like Maleficent, Capt. Hook, Hades will host a wicked dance party, plus lots more spooky fun.

Walt Disney World

The hub of the villains’ festivities will be staged “dead” center of Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Hades’ Hangout – the hottest club north of the Underworld.

The “Lord of the dead,” Hades, will host spine-tingling fun while his henchmen, dancers, interactive DJ and hot house band keep the nighttime activities on fire.  Hades’ 13 devilish Disney brutes will be waiting in Villain Encounters surrounding Hades’ Hangout for greetings and autographs with guests.

To celebrate the imminent arrival of the midnight witching hour “Villainy in the Sky” will set the sky ablaze with spectacular fireworks, and keep the party going until the 13th hour.

It’s all happening for a limited time only from 8 p.m. – 1 a.m. on Friday, September 13, 2013 as part of Limited Time Magic at Disney Parks.

“Disney Villains such as Maleficent, Dr. Facilier and the Evil Queen wait with eerie anticipation as a night of mischief approaches. On Friday Sept. 13, 2013 Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort will remain open until the 13th hour (1 a.m.) as the Disney villains are unleashed as part of the Disney Parks Limited Time Magic. The one-night-only event “Unleash the Villains” will include special meet and greets and a dance party hosted by an evil ensemble.”

Disneyland

On this spooktacular evening, villains will take over Disneyland as well. Town Square is transformed for the party where guests may see villains like Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, Judge Frollo and Lady Tremaine.  Cobwebs and vines, Halloween-themed projections, lighting effects and an eerie fog set the tone for the evening.  Witches and warlocks will get the dance party started, spinning a mix of upbeat Halloween tunes and Disney-friendly Top 40 hits.

Later in the evening, the twisted celebration spills over to New Orleans Square Train Station with lurking Disney villains ready for the Unleash the Villains Dance Party featuring a lit-up dance floor and raised platforms, spooky décor and lighting effects.  A mischievous station master DJ conducts this party — announcing the arrival of a different ghoulish Disney villain at the 13th minute after every hour.  Villains will be on the prowl after dusk for photo ops and character greetings, plus a few special surprises.

Long-lost Friends 2.0 is confirmed for July 15-21. Limited Time Magic with my thoughts and plan ideas

Reunite with Long-Lost Friends Week

July 15 to July 21, 2013

This is from the Limited Time Magic website:

Attention Disney lovers and Character enthusiasts alike! Once again, Limited Time Magic is bringing back a few old pals for an unforgettable return to Magic Kingdom park! During Long-Lost Friends Week, some familiar faces will step back into the spotlight at Town Square on Main Street, U.S.A. Don’t miss this opportunity to get up close and personal with rare Disney Characters you may have helped select in an online poll! From Robin Hood and Br’er Rabbit to Louis and Dr. Facilier from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, drop by to see who got the most votes and enjoy a few memory-making photo opportunities too.

This is from the Disney Blog

During Long-Lost Friends week (July 15-21), rarely seen Disney characters will be stepping into the spotlight at Town Square on Main Street, U.S.A. You’ll have the chance to get up-close and personal and enjoy photo opportunities with the friends you selected in our online poll.

  • From “Robin Hood”: Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John
  • From “Chicken Little”: Chicken Little and Abby Mallard
  • From “Song of the South”: Brer Bear and Brer Fox

There will also be more long-lost Disney characters to see, so be sure to visit Magic Kingdom Park July 15-21 to find out who else will be visiting during “Limited Time Magic” at the Walt Disney World Resort.

My thoughts:

The two lists point to the same characters that were mentioned in the Rumor thread from July 8th.  It’s odd that the blog didn’t mention Brer Rabbit but the LTM site did mention him specifically.   There will still be one more group.   The Chicken Little group, Louis with Dr. Facilier and Brer Fox are the best ones mentioned in the grouping.  The Shadowman only appears for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties and Brer Bear and Brer Rabbit appear daily for the Frontierland Hoedown.

It have a job interview in Orlando on the 22nd, so I’ll catch the final day on the 21st.  I can tell you from experience that you’ll want to visit the Flag Pole Characters FIRST, then catch the ones where Mary Poppins usually meet and the other two sets.
