    Good news, the Thumper band actually came! The CM also "made an exception" and let me order a custom band for my older son (at the discounted price) that had been out of stock when I made the initial order. That came too, so no issue with one kid having the upgraded band and the other a solid band.

    The retail psychology of this is interesting. They can't get me to spend $24.99 per band, but I'm falling all over myself to spend $30 to buy 3 bands. It reminds me of when Williams Sonoma came out with the bread machine oh so many years ago. They didn't sell. So they made a deluxe version priced twice as high and THEN the original one at the original price flew off the shelves because it was such a "deal".

    Glad to hear it worked out. Over on DIS I've noticed that the WDW team seems to be working to fulfill orders properly that were placed while the whole system was in chaos and they originally delivered random plain oclors instead of confirmed placed orders..

    Our arrival date is 7/27 - any idea what the cutoff is for ordering? MDE tells me two different dates - 7/16 or 6/25. Any guesses as to why the two dates, or which is correct?

    I was told by a phone CM cut off is 11 days before check in is the "real" deadline.
