Today’s Picture of the Day takes us to Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom.
The balloons on Main Street U.S.A. are a popular stop for people looking for a souvenir. Not only are they fun, but the costumes the cast members are wearing go perfectly with the turn-of-the-twentieth century theme of Main Street U.S.A.
Every time I enter Magic Kingdom and walk down Main Street U.S.A. I can’t help but have a hug smile on my face. The look and feel of this section of the park is so inviting and the cast members with the balloons help with that. People (kids and adults) love balloons and people in Disney love Disney themed balloons. I see lots of kids with the balloon that has a lighted Mickey balloon inside of it and, to be honest, I kind of want one.
They usually have a good variety of balloons to choose from and if you don’t want a balloon you can always check out the vendors that have other fun offerings, like lighted necklaces, swords, and spinners. Those vendors are pretty popular too.
Just a quick note about the balloons, if you are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (both Jambo House and Kidani Village) balloons are not allowed in the rooms. The hotel will hold on to the balloons and give them to you when you are leaving. The reason is they don’t want the animals eating any of the balloons if they happen to drift out to the savanna.
Have you ever bought a balloon on Main Street U.S.A.?

We took our 4 year old daughter last September for her first Disney trip. She saw a picture of the balloons before we went and she already wanted one. We did not get it the first day because I thought it would be like the typical balloon purchase and be deflated on the floor of our hotel room after a day and a half. I was wrong. We got the balloon on our third day and it lasted a couple of weeks after getting it home. The car ride with it back to Mississippi was interesting. They definitely last (and should since they are not $5.00 balloons!). Well worth it for the little ones.
That is fantastic that they last so long! I didn’t realize that and it’s good to know you get your money’s worth from it. Thank you for the info 🙂
You bring out the magic with every picture you take. Your descriptions of each picture make me want to be there so bad. Only 539 days to go. I love Disney at Christmas.
Thank you so much for your kind words!! Posting the pictures helps me with my Disney withdrawal. LOL
Disney at Christmas is so beautiful. Planning a Disney trip is half the fun, so you can immerse yourself in the planning and your trip will be here before you know it! 🙂
We are headed to Disney in December. My kids always get balloons. This year I am getting one. I was just diagnosed with cancer-age 46-a total surprise. I finished surgery and begin chemo next week. This “birthday” trip for my son will now turn into a “survivor celebration” for me!! I’m getting a MM ear balloon for sure! Your photo inspired me and I cried tears of excitement. I announced it to all my kids and called the blue balloon for Mommy! They will have to pick out different ones. LOL
Your comment brought tears to MY eyes, Nicolle!! I am so happy for you that you get to have a survivor celebration in Disney World!! I will pray and think healing thoughts for you, so you can have the most magical time, because you deserve it!! And get a whole bunch of Mickey balloons, again, you earned every bit of magic you can get out of the trip to Disney.
Also, I would pick up a celebration pin. Tell them you are celebrating being a cancer survivor and they will write it on the pin. You can wear that for your whole trip and the responses you will get from both cast members and other guests will be amazing. You can get the pins at the front desk of any Disney hotel and I’ve seen them passing them out on Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom. I believe you can also get them from Guest Relations at the front of the parks.
So happy for you!! Wishing you lots of pixie dust during your magical vacation!!
