New Characters in Flight Balloon Rises Above Disney Springs

The Characters in Flight balloon has a brand new look for Disney Springs.

Following a short refurbishment, the tethered balloon attraction has an all new look balloon, featuring shades of blue, and no more characters.

The balloon, which was custom-built for Disney by Paris-headquartered company Aérophile S.A., and is filled with 210,000 cubic feet of helium. The balloon’s 19-foot-diameter basket holds up to 29 people plus one Aérophile-certified pilot per flight.

The 10 minute flights cost $18 for adults, and $12 for ages 3-9.

I am a lifelong fan of everything Disney. My first trip to a a Disney park was to Disneyland as a child in 1970, but didn't make to Walt Disney World until I went with my wife and first child in 1990. A year doesn't go by with out at least one trip to either Disneyland or Walt Disney World. My wife and I are Disney Vacation Club members and also Charter Members of D23.
