    My husbands family is from Albuquerque but we can't make it during the week when the balloon will be there so we are asking someone from his family to get pictures for me. THANKS for the information.

    The balloon is kind of scary looking. But it is cool to see a big Mickey. I wonder if the BIG hat?

    If only Google Earth had live pictures.
    It'd be hilarious to see a giant Mickey on there.
