LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The fun soars to new heights at Downtown Disney West Side with an iconic new tethered balloon that takes guests on ascents of up to 400 feet above the waterfront.

Guests board a gondola beneath the 105-foot-high balloon from a landing platform on Village Lake at the end of the main promenade at Downtown Disney West Side. Riders can catch flights seven days a week. Hours Sunday-Thursday are 10:30 a.m.-11 p.m. while ascents Friday-Saturday are 10:30 a.m.-midnight. Tickets ($16 for ages 10-up and $10 for ages 3-9) can be purchased on site. Availability is on first-come, first-serve basis.

Characters In Flight operated by Aerophile is a 72-foot-diameter balloon with a whimsical design featuring silhouettes of a dozen of Disney’s “flying characters” – such as Mary Poppins, Peter Pan and Dumbo. The vibrantly colored balloon can lift up to 30 guests at a time on a six-minute trip – thanks to its enclosed volume of 210,000 cubic feet of lighter-than-air gas. The ascents, by day or night, provide guests with an unparalleled, 360-degree view of up to 10 miles.

Yeah, seems like there could be lines there for that, so we'll have to see how it is when we get there. Six minutes is kind of lame.

they should throw in something fastpassish for an attraction like that. not necessarily fastpass, but some kind of option that will allow you to reserve a spot on the balloon.

i still think it'd be neat, haha. 6 minutes is 6 minutes but it's a hot air balloon looking over disney's whole resort, ya knows? imagine 6 minutes of that at night time when we're going during the holiday season. i bet it would be beautiful with all those lights below us. =)
