Limited Time Magic at Walt Disney World

The Disney theme parks have announced the theme of their celebration for 2013: 52 Weeks of "Limited Time Magic." The idea is that "unexpected experiences with an extra sprinkle of Pixie Dust" will show up randomly at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, and then will disappear when the next experience pops up. The announcement was made with Mickey Mouse unveiling a three-story ice castle made of 45,000 pounds of ice, built overnight in New York City's Times Square. Due to warm temperatures, the ice castle was only visible for a "limited time."

Below, find out about the Limited Time Magic that has already happened at Walt Disney World, as well as some planned for the rest of the year.  Events will be added as details are announced, but since they are surprises, not all events are known in advance.
