One of my readers, Blair, messaged me today to tell me that when his Annual Passholder renewal MagicBands arrived today, the usual AP MagicSliders were not included. Instead, he was given a little note stating that the slider was out of stock and they wouldn’t ship any to him until later this Spring 2017. I’ve never heard of this happening before, and I’m curious as to why they couldn’t make enough of these. Are they changing the design? Was there a manufacturing issue? Maybe a slight change to the sliders so they better fit MagicBand 2? Just beware if you are ordering your AP MagicBands any time soon that you may not get them in your box!
