Disney World will be springing some "Limited Time Magic" on theme-park guests with special weeklong programming throughout 2013.
An example was "Long Lost Friends Week" that puts the parks' rarely seen characters in the spotlight. (The news release specifically mentions Clarabelle Cow, Remy, Flik, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.)
Other Limited Time Magic themes will celebrate pirates, a weeklong Valentine's Day and an expanded July 4th celebration into "Independence Week." One week, the Magic Kingdom a cappella group Dapper Dans will shift into boy-band mode in its selections.

On Sept. 13, it will be "Unleash the Villains," with a bad-guy dance party, collectibles and late-night shenanigans at Disney's Hollywood Studios, which will stay open until 1 a.m.
Disney did not release an exact schedule of events, saying the news will be spread via the Disney Parks Blog, DisneyWorld.com, Facebook, Twitter and other means, "adding to the element of surprise," the release said.
