[QUOTE=Spectro is #1;964202]The only reason I can think of that you cannot see the photos is because your browser/computer is seeing my blog as unsafe. Most of the photos that are small are linked to photobucket to save on blog storage space. The larger pictures of the balloon ride were directly uploaded to wordpress and your computer may not like my URL. They are there trust me.
You are correct the fact that the balloon being tethered has no relationship to its means of lift. I have seen hot air balloon rides offer tethered flights. People have been calling it a “hot air” balloon ride and I wanted to be sure people understand that it is not a hot air ride. Even while in line for the flight the guy behind me got a phone call and told the person on the other end he was “in line for the hot air balloon ride over at Downtown Disney".
I mentioned that the balloon is tethered so people will not be confused as to how a balloon can be launched and then return to the same location since balloons have no steering.
I should have mentioned that kids 3-9 are $10.00

Thanks! Yeah, I see what your saying. It’s definately NOT a hot air balloon but I am sure many people will mistake it for that. I think I just misread what you mentioned in your blog. :laugh: I thought you said “People are calling this a tethered balloon & that’s incorrect.” I was like, huh? What is it then? :laugh:
Beautiful pics!!! I found them! Do you suggest doing this during the day or do you think it might be even more scenic in the evening? OH, and did you check out the wind speed by calling the resort desk first to see if it was running or did you just go & hope for the best?
