Giddy about Disney Balloons

Mickey Ears Balloons

I have a thing about balloons. Always have. And there’s no place better to find one than the happiest place on earth. Balloons always make me smile, and I love watching my kids’ faces light up when they get their balloons.

One of the things I’ve always appreciated about the balloons at Disneyland is their quality. We were noticing once how long they lasted, so we decided to see just how long. My son chose a red balloon, the one that has Mickey ears inside of another clear balloon. It lasted twelve days! Of course, your mileage may vary, but you get the point. Another thing I appreciate about Disney balloons is that cast members appear to have a generous policy for replacing balloons when they are lost, lose air or are damaged at the park.

Every time I go to the park I feel giddy just thinking about having another balloon picture opportunity. I know, I’m funny that way.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be in charge of balloons at Disneyland? Here’s a short video from the Disney Parks YouTube channel showing a balloon cast member’s point of view, along with some behind the scenes footage:
