    A very odd question.

    OK. I have been going to Disneyland for a few years now. 2 years ago I had an AP, and went 2 times a month, and then I didnt have an AP for till now, but went a about twice between then and now. One thing that has really PUZZLED me, is something that may seem odd. All through the park, I keep seeing these balloons, pastel, with Disney characters on them. Almost always attached too strollers. The thing is, I have never seen them sold or handed out! Where do they get those balloons? It MUST be a morning thing, since they all seem rather dead at the end of the day, but its driving me batty.

    So where are these things comming from?

    They are your standard size 11" latex balloons, not the foil or big mouse ear ones.

    If they have Mickey on them Juggling and then little confetti all over them then they come from the hotels... We hand magic out to the little ones during Checkin if we have the time...

    You may be correct, and I had my suspicion that it was the hotels in the morning, but I just wanted to confirm it. Im almost never in the parks at the morning anyways Im lazy and love my sleep! I think those are the ones im talking about. They seem to have this BIG warning lable on the top about not letting kids play with them or something.

    They're the Breakfast with Minnie balloons! They hand them out at the Plaza Inn during the character breakfast there - hence the "dead by the evening" and the picture of Minnie on 'em.
