Limited Time Magic Vinylmation “Easter Egg” Hunt in Epcot – Part 1 of 2

Published March 18, 2013 by

I was SUPER excited to be a part of Day One of Limited Time Magic for the week of March 18th-23rd!

Disney promised this would be “the most Egg-cellent Limited Time Magic surprise yet.” Today’s post will be the first of two posts we will do about this event,  in order to avoid any spoilers for those of you who may be traveling here this week and would like to be surprised about some things.

To begin, you are invited to visit Port of Entry in Epcot. This is the shop located across from Duffy’s meet and greet area.

This is where you can purchase your special Eggs-perience park map and stickers, available for $4.95, plus tax. If you look closely at the map you will notice all countries in World Showcase have an egg for you to find EXCEPT Mexico. Don’t waste time looking in the Mexico pavilion!

Your $4.95 price also includes this sticker sheet. You do not have to find the eggs to collect your vinylmation prize. You may collect it now if you wish! I opted to pick up my gifts before the hunt since we were in a bit of a hurry and I didn’t know if we would have time to return and collect.

Now you are on your way! You can explore the park for hidden eggs, using your map as a guide. As you locate eggs, you can then mark your map with the stickers.
I have photos of every egg in it’s location but we will save that for part two. Just for a visual, however, this is what you will be searching for:

There is one egg in each pavilion and they are probably about 2 feet tall and 2 feet around, each with a different character.

Once you are done with your hunt you bring your map back to the Port of Entry. If you choose to add your stickers it will look something like this.

Next you will head back to Port of Entry to view your choices in vinylmations!

Under each of these “eggs” is an example of all 4 vinylmations you may choose from, and you can then tell them which of the 4 you would like:

That’s about it for now. I will post more pictures and another blog about the Egg Hunt – and provide you with more photos and detals!

Vinylmation Easter Egg Hunt

Starting Monday you are invited on an Easter egg hunt through select Disney Parks. Search for hidden eggs, mark them with stickers provided on the special Eggs-perience Park map and return to one of the redemption locations for a special prize. You can purchase the special map and stickers for a nominal fee at Port of Entry near the Meet and Greet for Duffy by Showcase Plaza, or at International Gateway.


Exclusive Video from Day one! Limited Time Magic: Dapper Dans – the “Original Boy Band”

Dapper Dans – The “Original Boy Band”


February 25 to March 3, 2013

From Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando Florida:

“The Dapper Dans tip their hats to a new kind of music that they discovered while “strolling through the park one day.” Watch for this winsome quartet and their all-new medley that will have “Everybody” seeing “What Makes You Beautiful.” But they won’t be saying “Bye Bye Bye” to barbershop completely—after all, the Dapper Dans are the “Original Boy Band.” Part of Limited Time Magic, this musical time warp is a can’t-miss experience at Magic Kingdom park in Florida.” – source

Disney announces weekly park surprises for 2013

Published October 18, 2012 by

Social media will be a big component of a new program announced by Disney Wednesday in which the company’s parks in California and Florida will feature weekly surprise themes and events.

The “Limited Time Magic” program will include impromptu concerts, dance parties, colored lighting, character meet-and-greets, new menu and merchandise items and other events at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., near Orlando.

Disney will use Twitter, blogs, websites and other online activity to let park visitors know what’s happening. Guests might also be asked to vote on which characters they’d like to see or be sent on scavenger hunts with hints to figure out what’s new or different.

“It’s a fun, lighthearted, new way to get people engaged,” Leslie Ferraro, executive vice president of global marketing and sales for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said at a news conference in Manhattan.

Disney erected a 25-foot-tall castle made of ice in Times Square to symbolize the fleeting nature of the weekly surprises, and water ran down the turrets as the ice melted Wednesday morning. Blase New Yorkers hurried past without giving it a second glance but some fans and tourists donned mouse ears and took pictures.

Each “Limited Time Magic” theme will last a week. Plans include celebrations of July Fourth, “Pirate Week,” 3-D chalk art, “Long Lost Friends Week” featuring lesser-known Disney characters. A Valentine’s Day celebration will feature pink and red lighting on Disney castles and romantic candlelit dinners in park restaurants.

Other Disney park news this year includes the June opening of Cars Land at California Adventure at Disneyland, and the continuing expansion of Fantasyland at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The Fantasyland project, which is the largest expansion in the park’s 41-year history, began in March with the first of two Dumbo rides taking flight and is expected to be completed in 2014.
