    If we purchase a balloon at MK to tie to our stroller, will it be allowed in all parks? I saw NOT at AK lodge, but what about the park? I hate to have to pop it and rebuy when we change parks. Thanks!

    Hi Shauna,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    For the safety of the animals at Animal Kingdom park, there are a few items, such as drinking straws, that are specifically prohibited there. Unfortunately, that includes balloons, which can cause a hazard if they get away from guests and end up where the animals can eat them or get tangled up in them.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as you make your last-minute plans. Your Walt Disney World vacation is so close now. Enjoy!
