Characters In Flight


Characters in Flight

characters-in-flight4Characters in Flight operated by Aérophile takes you up in a giant tethered balloon 400 feet above Downtown Disney Area! Ascend in the sky for approximately 8 to 10 minutes and experience a breathtaking, 360–degree view of Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

And you’d know those silhouettes anywhere — it’s Mary Poppins, Aladdin, Dumbo and other characters from some of Disney’s most famous films! See them across the surface of the internally illuminated balloon that rises above you! It’s a special design just for the Walt Disney World Resort.

It’s the world’s largest tethered gas balloon! The balloon itself is attached to a gondola that is 19 feet in diameter and holds up to 29 Guests and the pilot at a time. Guests board from a specially designed platform and then, once in the air, revel in a spectacular view up to 10 miles away!

Weather permitting, the hours of operation are every day from 9 a.m. to midnight.

  • $18 Adult (tax included) – Guests ages 10 and up
