The Happiest Balloon on Earth

Both today and tomorrow, a hot-air balloon shaped somewhat like Mickey Mouse is supposed to be in the Seattle area as promotion for Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration. I've read that it was supposed to take flight from Gas Works this morning between 6 and 7 am, but that's way too early for my blood.

Did anyone spot this today? I'm going to Disneyland later this week and thought it'd be fun to go track down the balloon first.
