    Hello! Are there other places that the Mickey ear balloons are sold besides Magic Kingdom? I would love to get some but we don’t have tickets to MK. Thank you!

    Hi, Navella, and thanks for popping by planDisney with your question today! The iconic Mickey balloons are a delightful souvenir and staple for kids of all ages, and I'm happy to tell you where you can find them throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!

    In addition to availability at Magic Kingdom Park, Mickey balloons and other specialty balloons are available for purchase daily at Disney's Hollywood Studios along Sunset Boulevard or Hollywood Boulevard, typically starting at 1 PM EST and until park closing. My panelist pal Lizzie has shared that hours and availability are always subject to weather, wind, and delivery, so keep that in mind when searching for your balloons! They are also available for purchase at Disney Springs in the Marketplace near the Lime Garage, also starting at 1 PM EST.

    Navella, no matter where you purchase your balloon, it is free to accompany you all over Disney property and onboard Disney transportation options with no problems! The only exception to this is Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park does not allow balloons inside of the park; if you forget to leave your balloon behind, you can visit Guest Relations where they will be happy to check your balloon into daycare for the day to keep it (and the animals) safe! You'll even get a personalized daily report upon pick-up to let you know how your balloon enjoyed its day! Keep in mind also that some attractions may require you to leave your balloon with a Cast Member while you ride, but you can collect it upon your return! And one last quick tip to keep the magic alive - if your balloon has an accident and pops during your trip, you can bring the deflated balloon to a Cast Member and receive a complimentary replacement! 

    Navella, I hope you find the balloon you are searching for and enjoy your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to come back and let us know! At planDisney, we're all ears!

    See you real soon,
