From the Disney Blog:
I have great news! On November 26 our very own Sailor Mickey balloon will make his maiden voyage high above the streets of New York in Macyâ€™s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Take a look at this exclusive video showcasing the balloonâ€™s journey, from concept to reality.
Here are some fun facts about Sailor Mickey:
- Mickey Mouse was last seen in the Macyâ€™s Parade in 2000 as Bandleader Mickey.
- The Sailor Mickey balloon is approximately 61 feet high, 33 feet wide and 48 feet long. Thatâ€™s more than six stories tall!
- It takes about 14,000 cubic feet of helium to fill the Sailor Mickey balloon.
- The Sailor Mickey balloon will be guided by a team of 70 volunteers.
