Details of the drink haven't been announced, but a best bartender guess would be that it is likely comprised of light rum, vodka, Curaçao, pineapple juice, & Sweet and Sour mix--aka a "Blue Hawaii". Attached Images

Waiting for Magic Bands . . .

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-04-20 13:55
I checked on My Disney Experience at the 30 day mark to see if the magic band status had changed. Good thing I checked, because they had somehow lost/deleted the personalization on one of our magic bands. I updated it, and I hope it was in time.

At 29 and 28 days out, the status said the magic bands are being prepared. Could it remain in that status for several days? I thought they shipped out at 30 days.
