    The huge balloon that will be carrying guests up to 400ft above Downtown Disney is now inflated on the waterside dock. The ride is expected to fully open on April 1st 2009

    At $16 for adults and $10 for children (3-9) the price isn't too bad either!

    Mmmm we were gonna do both this year.

    Perhaps we should do ST at SW first and see if we need to do the balloon.

    I love the SkyTower at SW :yes: As it rotates you are forever looking to spot things like Aquatica, Epcot ball, Discovery Cove etc. It's even fun just seeing Shamu Stadium from the air.
