This year is already flying by, and we swear it was just Halloween yesterday!
But speaking of balloons, we spotted something on Main Street, U.S.A. today that really took us by surprise. A black Mickey balloon! The week before Easter? Say what? These are usually only for sale during the Halloween season!
Here’s a little backstory — yesterday, we saw a family with a black Mickey balloon tied to their stroller. When we asked cast members about it, they said, “Nope — we don’t sell black balloons right now. Maybe it was just dark purple.” So we figured it was just a balloon that the family had gotten around Halloween and re-inflated (that’s actually thing — pretty cool right?) to bring on their visit.
So when we saw this on Main Street today — in the bunch of balloons to be sold — we got a closer look to make sure our eyes weren’t deceiving us. Maybe this balloon was dark purple and just LOOKED black in the sunlight. But nope, it’s black. And there was only one!
Either way, we loved seeing this unique option today. You do you, Black Balloon. Be your most authentic self.
We’ll let you know if we spot any other anomalies at Disney World!
