    Is it possible to pay for a Disney balloon using a Magic Band (charged to your room)? Or do you need to bring cash? How much do the balloons typically cost? I would rather not bring cash to the parks. Thanks.

    Hello, Alexandra,

    When I think of Walt Disney World, especially the Magic Kingdom Park, the iconic picture I always have in my mind is the view of Main Street, U.S.A. with a cast member holding Mickey balloons and Cinderella Castle in the background.  The balloons just seem to epitomize the Disney experience to me! When you go to purchase a balloon, you are welcome to use your MagicBand.  The price of the Mickey balloons (as of January 2020) start at $12 and go up from there (prices subject to change). 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if you have any further questions. -Kara
