    Hello!! We have a trip planned to Epcot in May and are really hoping to reveal our gender to the kids with a Mickey balloon. Are you able to confirm if we can purchase balloons in Epcot? If so, are there certain spots to purchase? Thank you so much!!

    Hi Brooke,

    Congratulations on your new arrival. Disney World is such a magical place for a gender reveal. Your kids will have so much fun finding out if they are going to have a little brother or little sister on their next Walt Disney World vacation.

    Mickey Balloons are such a fun way to do a gender reveal but unfortunately, they only sell them at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. If you are attached to the Mickey Balloon idea then you will need to move your big reveal to Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios.

    EPCOT does not have an area where you can purchase balloons but lucky for you there are several other fun and picture-worthy options. One fun option is to purchase a Mickey or Minnie plush and then surprise them with the stuffed animal. This is a fun option because it can become the baby's first stuffed animal too. You could also have congratulations buttons made at your resort or Guest Services announcing if you are having a baby boy or baby girl. You could do this during a character greeting and have your kid's favorite character break the news to them with a plush or button! My favorite option is to order a Specialty Cake to be delivered to one of your dining reservations emblazoned with "Congratulations on Your Baby Boy or Girl." This is fun and delicious!

    I highly recommend booking a Capture Your Moment photo session so you have a photographer there to grab all of the fun pictures of your kid's reactions to their new sibling!

    Happy Planning,
