Winnie the Pooh said it best… “Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.” If there is one thing that adds a little dose of magic to an already magical day at Walt Disney World, it is a balloon. While Mickey balloons are extra special in the Parks, we found a way to get a unique balloon like no other! We are fans of the Disney classic film, Sleeping Beauty, of course. Ever since we first saw the Maleficent Dragon float in Magic Kingdom’s Festival of the Fantasy Parade, we were in awe. While the Festival of Fantasy Parade has not returned just yet, you can see the Maleficent Dragon float at Disney After Hours Boo Bash. But, now you can take your love for Maleficent one step further with a large Maleficent Dragon balloon available at Walt Disney World!
So, how do you get your hands on one? If you’ve never heard of Disney Floral and Gifts – you’re missing out. Disney offers a fantastic way to surprise family and friends while staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. You can order a gift basket of goodies – ranging from snacks and drinks to flowers, a balloon bouquet, blanket, and everything in between. Upon arrival at your Disney Resort, Cast Members will place the special gift basket in your room. It’s a perfect way to kick off a Disney vacation for young and old alike. With different themes to match the season, and every special occasion you can think of – Disney Floral and Gifts has something for everyone.
The Pet Maleficent Themed Dragon Balloon however is what’s getting our attention! This Maleficent Dragon balloon is available for $35.99 from Disney Floral and Gifts. The description reads: “This standing 32″ dragon balloon comes with an attached ribbon leash any Maleficent fan can use to take it for a walk.” BUT WAIT! “This balloon is available as an addition to any gift purchase, however, it cannot be purchased individually.” Did you catch that? You can have this balloon, but it must be purchased WITH a gift basket.
For example, if you want the Maleficent Dragon Balloon, you’ll need to purchase a gift basket such as the “Disney Villain Toast”. This basket is described as “Toast to your “happily evil after” with your selection of wine, pair of Disney Villain goblets, and “sinfully” sweet chocolates from The Ganachery at the Disney Springs area. The sorcery continues with a villainous throw and a keepsake matted Disney artist illustration featuring your favorite evil characters and their signatures.” This gift basket cost is between $186.99 and $284.99 depending on your wine selection price. Once you add a gift basket to your cart, then you can add a “Magical Addition” which is where you can select the Maleficent Dragon Ballon.
The cost adds up, right? No worries. Disney Floral and Gifts offers a variety of baskets at different prices depending on your selection. From Halloween to Fall, Birthdays and Anniversary… they have just about everything and anything to surprise your family, friends – or to simply treat yourself with an in-room gift. While we don’t purchase a Disney Floral and Gifts basket each visit, it is something we like to surprise family and friends with. We must say however when it comes to the Maleficent Dragon Balloon – we are going to spoil ourselves with this one! Check out all the options available via Disney Floral and Gifts here. Happy shopping, Disney fans!
