LAKE BUENA VISTA Characters in Flight Balloon at Disney Springs For a different view of Disney Springs, try a trip aboard the Characters in Flight tethered balloon, which lifts visitors about 400 feet above the shopping, dining and entertainment complex for a 360-degree view of the Walt Disney World Resort for about eight minutes. The balloon features a fresh design inspired by the springs and the element of water. Custom-built for Disney by Paris-based company Aérophile S.A., the Aéro30 is filled with 210,000 cubic feet of helium. The balloon’s 19-foot-diameter basket holds up to 29 people, plus one Aérophile-certified pilot. Daily operations are 8:30 a.m. to midnight, weather permitting. Photography: David Roark
