Party balloons [probably] won't make it, they'll burst at altitude.

You need to get hold of a weather balloon.

As for permission, it depends where you are - contact your local/national aviation authorities to find out.

if you fill it a 3/4 of it it'll have room to expand in the stratosphere

Have a look at real weather balloons - they're only around 10-20% full at launch. You'll have to test it, but I don't think a party balloon will lift off when it's that empty.
