    Other than Hollywood Studios, can BB 8 balloons be purchased in other Walt Disney World parks?

    Bright suns, Tanya! I am so glad you popped by planDisney with this question about balloons as you head to the Most Magical Place on Earth today.

    The BB-8 balloons are extremely popular at Disney's Hollywood Studios—with good reason. BB-8 proves that droids can be absolutely adorable. Bestill my heart! Typically, you can find these delightful balloons along Sunset Boulevard or Hollywood Boulevard from around 1 pm until the park closes. Availability is subject to change and is dependent on the weather. Rain and wind are not favorable conditions for rolling droids and other balloon pals. 

    You can also usually purchase Mickey and other specialty balloons along Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park and in Disney Springs near the Lime Garage, also starting at 1 pm. I have not seen BB-8 balloons at either of these locations, but have been told availability can vary. Rebellions are built on hope.

    If you are headed to Disney Springs, you may want to check out Disney Dreams That Soar for more Star Wars in the sky. While these are not balloons you can take home, this limited-time drone show pays homage to a galaxy far, far away and other Disney characters closer to home and in our hearts. You can see the schedule for times to catch this show.

    I hope your day at Walt Disney World Resort has you floating on air. As Winnie the Pooh says, "Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon."

    If you have any other questions, please fly back by planDisney. We'll catch all the information we can for you!

    May the Force be with You!
