Over at Disneyland there are two on-going Limited Time Magic events. The Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue continues as does Bayou Bash. I’ve been reading reviews of the Horseshoe tribute and they’re almost uniformly positive with great things to say about the performers. If anything guests want to see more, which I think is a good sign for bringing back a show like Golden Horseshoe Revue… even if it’s a twice a night show with a prix fix menu like they did for the AP dinners.

You can tell the revival is a thing of love. It also includes some direct ties to the original show:

On the east coast we’re getting our third unique limited time magic opportunity. This time it’s one of the per-announced events. For one week, January 21–27, guests will want to keep their cameras ready for the chance to meet rarely seen classic characters like Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar, Robin Hood and Friar Tuck. Also on tap for appearances are the Three Little Pigs.

Disney Memories - Magic Kingdom at Twilight

A new series of commercials from Disney Parks has hit the airwaves. They position a Disney Parks vacation as a sort of memory factory from which there is a limited time to extract those precious moments. I say it a bit cynically, but that really is the formula that Disney and its research partners have found to work the best.

With a world where economic uncertainty is the one thing that’s for certain, surveys and guests have told Disney that guests are looking to make the one thing that can’t be taken away from them, special family bonds built by time spent together.

As it turns out, Disney is uniquely suited to provide this experience. The Disneyland Resort has received a kickstart with the revitalized California Adventure gate making it a true multi-day destination and the Walt Disney World resort has perfected the art of enveloping you in the magic to such a point that you never have to experience anything non-Disney form the moment you arrive at the airport until your departure. Not quite as good as teleporting your from your kitchen to the Magic Kingdom, but it will have to do until the Imagineers perfect that option.
