    Are twist balloon Disney characters available to purchase anywhere? Thank you very much!

    Hello, K!

    Welcome back! I was so excited to see a new question from you, thanks for coming to visit planDisney.

    There is just something so joyful about a balloon, no matter the shape or size! My own kids actually got twisted balloon Disney characters while we were dining at a restaurant in the Downtown Disney District several years ago, they happily carried them around all evening. It was very cute! These balloons were being twisted by an outside vendor, and I have not seen them being created at the resort in any of my recent visits. You never know when they might "pop" back up, but I wouldn't plan on them being available at the moment. 

    While I can't tell you where to find twisted balloons, I can absolutely help you find some very magical balloons! You can find Disney balloons for sale in the Downtown Disney District, Disneyland Park, and Disney California Adventure Park. The balloons are usually a mix of classic styles and seasonal favorites. When the sun starts to go down you may even see some of the balloons begin to light up the night! These balloons are incredible and often last for weeks if you have a way to transport them home. If you happen to be flying (or tight on space) you can very carefully cut the plastic clip at the base of the balloon to deflate it, then have it reinflated later when you're home!

    Balloons bring such great energy to the parks. I love this Disney Parks Blog story about the "balloon room" backstage at Walt Disney World Resort, the photo is just so dreamy! The Disney Parks Blog also has a wonderful video about a day as a Disneyland Resort Balloon Vendor. These classic souvenirs have even been made into charming light-up balloon Christmas ornaments if you'd like a balloon that will last for years to come.

    K, I hope you'll be able to find a souvenir that will make you feel lighter than air! Please let me know if I can help with anything else for your next visit to the Disneyland Resort.

    Keep moving forward!
