Why bother to cover up the name? We all know it says "Shirley" under there. "The name's Status.....Shirley Status."Wednesday, con’t
As we walked out of the Emporium I turned to Woody and asked, “Can we stop by City Hall? Maybe someone can tell me why my Minnie band stopped working.”
“As long as you’re willing to take the risk of getting rained on,” he replied.
I gave a quick glance into the sky and decided the rain threat was not imminent. “If the line is long we won’t wait,” I declared.

The folks milling around the entrance were doing just that.....milling. There were only a couple of people inside waiting to speak to a Guest Services CM.

Soon it was our turn for assistance. Cast Member Jim motioned us over to his station.
“My MagicBand isn’t working,” I announced.
Jim took my band and held it against his iPad. He smiled at me and said, “Are you sure? Looks like it is working to me.”
For a brief moment I felt a great sense of relief. Perhaps the workers in IT had finally corrected the problems in my MDE account?
“Mickey turned blue when I tried to enter the park this morning,” I explained to Jim. I then told him about our ordeal at Guest Services last night and having to use a comp ticket for my admission and fastpasses today.
Jim pressed my band against his iPad again. Then he furrowed his brow. He looked at his screen for a long time. “I’ll be right back,” he said before disappearing behind a private door.
This can’t be good. I’ve seen that perplexed furrowed-brow look before.
Jim returned several minutes later and handed me this ~

It was a voucher for a replacement Minnie MagicBand.
“Take this to the Emporium next door and get a new band. The cashier can link it for you.”
So back to the Emporium we went.
