Mainstreet - No balloons in sight.
Being a real life Balloon Lady (in that I'm a lady that does balloon decor), I have always been semi-offended that RunDisney has turned balloons into something that strikes fear into the hearts of people at the back of the pack, but at least it sounds like the actual ladies themselves are nice.
Here's a new Wall Street Journal article on the process:

Lots of tutus, but no Balloon Ladies!
I am back from Boston and will start training tomorrow. And great news! My week-long trip to Wichita that was to be the entire last week of October was postponed to December. This will make it MUCH easier to maintain training before the W&D. I'm not worried about finishing, but I would like to stop for pictures and that does mean I have to do some hustling.
I've also come to a conclusion about costuming, which is: I'm not going to do it. I think I'm going to get a cute Sparkle Skirt and just call it a day. MAYBE some lights to put on myself somewhere, but I don't want to fuss with a costume right now. I did the whole dress up thing for the Princess and it wasn't near as fun as I had envisioned. It was hot and I felt goofy. And not Mickey's friend Goofy, either. The kind that makes you a little sorry you were wearing a giant, puffy wig in 500% humidity.
And, don't be afraid of real life Balloon Ladies!
We make stuff like giant wall-through Hershey's Kisses:
And pretty butterflies:
