Views from Characters in Flight Balloon Ride at Downtown Disney
Characters in Flight is a tethered helium-filled balloon that takes you 400 feet in the air above Downtown Disney. The attraction opened in 2009 and is operated by Aerophile. The ride costs $18 for adults and $12 for kids and takes about 8 to 10 minutes.
My wife and I did the balloon ride earlier this month for the first time. We had nice views of Downtown Disney and could see the theme parks and water parks as well. I think it would be nice to do this at night and time it with Wishes and/or Illuminations to see the fireworks from the air.
