Characters In Flight – Grand Opening

A new attraction opened today (April 12, 2009) at the Downtown Disney Westside. “Characters In Flight” is a tethered helium filled balloon that takes guests 400 feet above Disney World for a breathtaking view of the property. Prices are $16 for adults and $10 for children ages 3-9.

I already confirmed with my Dad, he said he’d go with me . . . we’re going Mother’s Day weekend . . . can’t wait! :happy:

Thanks for posting this, I had no idea this was an option this year.

I am afraid of heights but I bet my DH and DS will LOVE to do this;)

Oh my gosh that looks amazing! I am not a great one for heights either but I think this is a one time thing to experience at least! The views will be astounding.


#11

This looks awesome! The view must be totaly breath taking, if it’s round long enough I’d love to check this out.


#12

This looks so cool. I imagine it wil be packed for a while until the newness wears off.


#13

I was so excited that we got to see it in “test flight” stages. It sounds like a pretty short ride, but still, I bet the view from the top must be outstanding!


#14

I want to try it when we go in June.


#15

Just wondering, what if the cable breaks and it gets loose? Now that would be a ride where you got your moneys worth.


#16

Oh, now thats an interesting thought!


#17

Allears has several great pictures of it.


#18

This would be an interesting thing. The prices are reasonable too, I thought.
