One of the most beloved souvenirs at Disneyland is the Disneyland balloons. They’re unique, colorful, and so fun for little kids to carry around on their Disneyland vacation.
These balloons are so special. You can only get them at Disney parks like Disneyland and Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
If you’ve never bought a Disney balloon on a previous Disney trip, then you’re probably wondering a few things about them.
I’m going to answer all of those questions and give you all the info you need!
How Much Are Disneyland Balloons?
These balloons definitely aren’t cheap. They’re definitely something to splurge on.
- Standard Disney Balloons $12
- Specialty Balloons $18
The standard balloons are just round balloons, like a typical balloon you see.
The specialty balloons are the ones that light up and the glasshouse balloons. A popular glasshouse balloon at the Happiest Place On Earth is the Mickey balloons where it has a Mickey balloon inside of a clear balloon.
These Mickey Mouse balloons are so cute and are perfect for having your little one hold while doing pictures in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.
You can usually get Minnie Mouse glasshouse balloons too. Sometimes there are other characters available and seasonal ones for Halloween and Christmas.
The light up ones are so fun for your little one to have at night, especially if there’s a parade or fireworks that they’re waiting for at the Disney park.

Where To Buy Disneyland Balloons
If you’re on the search for Disneyland balloons, there are multiple places to buy them. The places to buy them are hard to miss since they have tons of balloons floating up above them.
You can almost always find them on Main Street USA in Disneyland, usually towards the end of Main Street on the side closest to the castle.
In Disney’s California Adventure Park you can often find the balloons along Buena Vista Street, usually by Carthay Circle.
Sometimes you can even find them in Downtown Disney.
What Do I Do If Something Happens To My Balloon?
When you buy your balloon, save the receipt. You’ll need it if anything happens to your balloon. If it pops, gets stolen, or flies away then take your receipt back to the person you bought your balloon from and they will get you another one.
What To Do With Your Balloon In The Parks
It is best to tie your balloon to your stroller, backpack, or purse so that it doesn’t fly away. If your child wants to hold it, then I suggest tying it to their wrist or to a toy that they can hold.
You cannot go on rides with your balloon. You will either need to leave it with your stroller, with another person in your party, or ask the cast members at the ride if you can leave it with them while you’re riding the attraction.
If you’re having trouble finding them, you can always ask a cast member where the closest place to get balloons is.

How Long Do Disney Balloons Last?
These balloons typically last 2 weeks, but can last up to about 4 weeks. They’re great quality balloons, thankfully since they’re on the expensive side.
They should last at least as long as your trip. It’s best to buy them on the first day so you can enjoy them for your whole Disneyland vacation.
How To Get Your Balloon Home
If you’re driving home then you can obviously just put it in your car to take it home. A lot of people fly to California to visit Disneyland Resort though.
You cannot fly with a balloon that is inflated and has helium in it. You’ll need to carefully deflate your balloon without getting holes in it. They are closed with zip ties and not tied like a typical balloon. You can snip the zip tie to take it off without hurting then balloon, then you can blow it up again when you get home.
