When it comes to sharing stories from Disney World, 99.9% of those stories are pure joy and magic! But every once in a while, something TRAGIC happens.
No one should be forgotten in Disney World. Not even a balloon. You hate to see it.
We’re not sure why, but there’s something so heartbreaking about finding discarded Disney snacks and souvenirs around the parks. Remember that time we found a wholly UNEATEN Mickey Pretzel, left behind like yesterday’s news? We still haven’t recovered.
And speaking of Mickey-shaped things that break our hearts, we got all weepy about a pair of forgotten Mickey balloons in EPCOT recently! So many questions, not enough answers.
It pains us to say it, but the lonely balloon saga continued this weekend in Magic Kingdom. We were exploring the parks, enjoying an otherwise lovely day and reuniting with a classic Storybook Circus character, when we came to a screeching halt in Tomorrowland. There they were: two more forgotten balloons. Anchored together and brushed aside. OW.
At least they have each other, right? Even though balloons don’t have eyes, these two totally seem like they’re gazing at one another. It’s actually quite beautiful when you think about it that way!
Yeah, let’s go with that. These balloons weren’t forgotten. They’ve run off together to honeymoon in Disney World! (At least…that’s what we’re telling ourselves).
If a Mickey balloon could talk, what would it say? Let us know in the comments!
