Balloon grounded


#1

Downtown Disney’s iconic balloon disappears after balloon accident Hong Kong - OrlandoSentinel.com


#2

That is not a problem for me. I am afraid of heights :blush:


#3

I’ve been wanting to go up in that thing the last 3 trips, but everytime I went, it was closed down because of the wind. I read that it will be down for the rest of the year, but have hopes they’ll change their mind.


#4

Me, too, Loretta. :glare: Guess I’ll have to do a real hot air balloon ride. :happy:


#5

Nuts, this was on my “eventually” list.
Well, there’s still parasailing at Sammy Duval’s over at the Contemporary’s marina.


#6

This is why you always bring your own hot air balloon!


#7

If you get to the MK early enough you just need a lawn chair, some rope, and wade of cash to buy out all the balloon for sale on Main Street. Problem solved and it is a lot more portable than hauling your hot air balloon through bag check.


#8

OK Carl Fredricksen, but that only works in cartoons.


#9

Is this based on your personal experience?


#10

Of course. Who doesn’t have their own hot air balloon? :confused:


#11

Not the ballon, the hot air. Noce attempt to side step.


#12

we got to do it at night last fall it was awesome.


#13

Have missed out on doing this the last few trips and really sad I might not get to do it now! Hope they get it fixed and back up, it looked like so much fun!


#14

I always thought that MAYBE I would try it, but my fear of heights has always stopped me from doing it. Oh well, I guess now I don’t have to worry about it.


#15

I’ve done this in the daytime and I was hoping to do this at night this trip,but it don’t look like its going to happen.:sad:


#16

I wouldn’t count it out yet. It may be up and running in a few weeks.
