Disney today announced details for its Valentine's Day-themed "Limited Time Magic" promotion, which will run February 11-17, 2013 at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.

Expect a Valentine's Day decor makeover in the parks, much like what we've seen for HalloweenTime at Disneyland Park. Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom will illuminate their castles with red and pink lights each evening during the promotion, with projections of flowers and hearts promised at Disneyland. You'll also find a giant floral heart photo op in Town Square at Disneyland, too.

You'll find Mickey and Minnie and Donald and Daisy smooching in the parks during this Limited Time Magic. But what about Duffy and Shellie May? ;^)

There will be the expected assortment of Valentine's Day-themed limited-edition pins, plush, apparel, Mickey ears and Vinylmations at select merchandise locations. But the big, in-demand feature promises to be the Valentine's dinners for two.

Special prix fixe menus will be available during the week at Blue Bayou and Cafe Orleans in Disneyland, Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disney California Adventure Park, Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel, Napa Rose in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel, Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort, The Wave of American Flavors at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney's Yacht Club Resort. Reservations will probably be a must for these so call 714-781-DINE for the Disneyland venues and 407-WDW-DINE for the restaurants at Walt Disney World.

If you're looking for a simpler taste treat during the week, Disneyland Resort visitors will be able to buy special Valentine-themed chocolate cupcakes with raspberry mousse filling and dark chocolate mousse frosting at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe in Disneyland, and the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café and Pacific Wharf Café in Disney California Adventure, as well as at Disneyland Hotel Coffee House.

It's about time Disney figured out it should play up Valentine's Day a lot more. Disneyland has always been a popular place for dates. For next year, they should have swing dancing at the currently closed Carnation Plaza for every evening of the promotion. Valentine's decorations, special meals at the restaurants, unique merchandise... it's mind-boggling Disney hadn't fully implemented this before.
