Default Buying a Balloon in MK

Hi,

I am taking my granddaughter to Disney in June I want to get her a balloon probably on Main street. Two years ago they were $12 you could only pay cash. I googled to see if there were any price updates and the latest blog I could find was from 2015.

Has anyone gotten a balloon lately from Main Street? How much was it? Could you use your magic band to buy it?

Thanks,
Lisacast

Unless they've changed something, most street vendors only could accept cash.

We bought a blinking balloon on Main Street last year for $15. If I recall, they only took cash.

Keep in mind, if you are staying at Animal Kingdom Villas, you can't bring the balloon to your room. You will have to check it with bell services. Safety rule for the animals.

I don't remember the price, but I was able to buy 3 Mickey balloons on Main street with my credit card. The vendor can only take cash, but they told me to go to one of the kiosks on Main Street (I don't remember the name, but it was on the right side of the street if you face the castle), where I could pay for it with my credit card or magic band, and then I could bring him the receipt. It worked out pretty well.

I am literally on our flight back from Disney. Balloons are $12 each or $15 for the blinking ones. Believe it was cash only.
