What Is Characters In Flight?

Question:  What is Characters In Flight?

Characters In Flight is a very unique experience offered at Downtown Disney in Florida.  It is an exclusive hot air balloon ride designed for all ages to enjoy!  A magnificent hand painted helium balloon takes you on an 8 – 10 minute ride high in the sky!  You will have a 360 degree view of the Downtown Disney area!  This will include the Cirque du Soleil tent, resorts and surrounding theme parks areas!  You will have to look to see exactly what you can make out from your ride in the sky!

Somethings you should know before you go!
