    we are hoping to take a picture at disney for the gender reveal of our baby. Is it okay to bring confetti poppers or a balloon full of confetti (they have blue or pink confetti in them)? we will be surprised too.

    Hi, Mehul!

    First of all, congratulations on the new baby! There is no better joy than a brand new little one in your life.

    As for the reveal, I would avoid confetti poppers. These may not be allowed past the gate security when entering a theme park, as any type of toy gun or blasters are prohibited. If you are flying, poppers may not meet security guidelines.

    As for balloons, I am hesitant to give you a "yes" answer on this. This logistically just seems difficult to bring a filled balloon from Texas. Also, popping the balloon in a theme park may cause a disturbance with other guests.

    I really do not want to rain on your baby-parade, but how about a reveal in another way?
    -Perhaps make a pink Minnie Mouse "It's a GIRL" card or a blue Mickey Mouse "It's a BOY" card and have your doctor put the appropriate card in an envelope that you can open on Main Street with a PhotoPass photographer to capture the moment you open the envelope
    -Reveal the gender together, then buy your baby's first Mickey or Minnie outfit while on your vacation
    -Go to the Main Street Confectionery. Let a Cast Member read the gender from a secret card and tell them to get you either blur or pink cotton candy! Then you can buy this tasty treat and celebrate with a bit of sugary fun!
    -If you have names picked out, purchase your baby his or her first pair of Mouse Ears and have them embroidered with the name. Post this out on your social media accounts to make the grand announcement

    However you decide to enjoy the big reveal, I hope it is magical. Wishing you a happy, healthy baby!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio!
