    Are mylar balloons (not purchased in the park) allowed? I want to buy a big '5' balloon for my daughters birthday to take some photos in Magic Kingdom - but would hate to waste the money if it isn't allowed into the park. Thank you!

    Hi Karina and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am smiling just imagining the photo opportunity you're creating for your daughter. What a lovely memory of her birthday it will be! I do have good news. Mylar balloons are allowed in Magic Kingdom Park so you should be fine. I checked the Park Rules and spoke to a Cast Member to confirm the information was correct. The only park where balloons are not allowed is Disney's Animal Kingdom and that rule is for the safety of the animals. 

    Karina, I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating your daughter's birthday. Please wish her a happy birthday from all of us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other questions.

    Wishing you a magical celebration,
    Amy H.
