    After last year's disastrous promotion I hope it is something worthwhile this year.

    What do you think it might be or what would you like it to be?

    The rumours are that details will be released next week.

    It was the Limited Time Magic promotion when things happened for a week or a few days at a time. It was one huge disappointment.

    There were a few things I would have liked to have seen that they did but they only did them for a few days. Maybe they were testing out some ideas.

    I remeber being disappointed with the Free Dining dates last year but I dont have to worry this year because I booked the free dining bounceback offer starting on 08/20/2014 for 9 nights.

    I suspect it was originally supposed to be the FP+/Magic bands that they would give away for a year, only to begin charging later (that would also explain why there's rumours about charging for fastpasses). I think it had to be delayed as the system isn't quite ready for primetime yet.

    If this is true, whatever the promotion, it will be something that has been quickly put together and can be implemented with relative ease.

    I'd love something history-based to really showcase the rich history of the Disney story and the people it took to make it what it is now - like the year of Backstage Magic. However, with Diagon Alley opening up this year at Universal, I think it'll have to be something bolder and more brassy than that (ie. roll out the bloody princesses again and offer guests free dining as an incentive!).

    Isnt it something about "show your Disney side" or is that somethinf else?

    But yeah, was beyond disappointed with the limited time magic offerings, and even the name, "limited time" makes me feel like Ive already missed stuff, kind of makes me anxious

    I can't help but think it'll be something related to mymagic, the bands etc. They've spent SO much on it and run very close to it being called a disastrous implementation. So something that encourages people to think nicely about it and counteract the privacy concerns. I can see it being a my disney magic celebration with bonus fastpasses and surprises when you login to my disney experience etc. Anything to get everyone using all the technology
