    I want to do my gender reveal at Disney. I want to bring a box where I can put the Mickey balloons inside (pink or blue). Can I bring a box? Is there a certain size I can’t bring?

    Hey howdy hey, and welcome to planDisney! From one parent to another, I can say that there aren't many things more exciting than welcoming a new little one into the world, and what better place to announce your baby's gender than at Walt Disney World Resort? 

    It sounds like you're wanting to put pink or blue balloons in a box and open it up for the big reveal. According to the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, "Suitcases, bags, coolers or backpacks, with or without wheels, larger than 24" long x 15" wide x 18" high (61 cm x 38 cm x 46 cm) are not allowed in any theme park or water park." If your box is under that size, you shouldn't have trouble entering the Disney Theme Parks with it. You likely have your ideal vision for how you'd like this reveal to go, so I don't want to feel like you need to make a huge change. I'm wondering if a bag might be easier to bring in and fold up when you're finished with the exciting reveal. Walt Disney World Resort often sells large reusable bags, and there are also bags available for large items at merchandise locations. 

    You might consider booking a Capture Your Moment photo session with a Disney PhotoPass Photographer to ensure you have a dedicated spot and photographer to take the perfect snapshots of the big announcement! Be sure to purchase Memory Maker for unlimited downloads of all of the photos, so you can share them with everybody!

    Did you know that you can pick up a complimentary "I'm Celebrating" button at the Front Desk of your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or Guest Relations at the Disney Theme Parks? It's a great way to celebrate your new Mouseketeer? 

    If you're looking to commemorate your special announcement with a memorable meal, I highly recommend California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. You'll be treated to top-notch service and amazing views of Magic Kingdom Park during your delicious meal! 

    Please stop back by planDisney with any other questions you have, especially when it comes time to travel with your little one! As a mom of three, I have a running list of my favorite tips for bringing kids of all ages to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I'd love to share them with you!
