    Have a day planned for Typhoon Lagoon and Disney Quest. Half way thru the day we are having dinner at TRex Cafe and want to experience Characters In Flight. Need info on CIF. How often does it lift, how do u claim a spot, etc. thanks!

    Hi Scott!

    Wow! It sounds like you have quite an awesome day planned out! I love all of these things! Characters in Flight is definitely an experience that I highly recommend. It is incredible to view all of Walt Disney World Resort from 400 feet in the air! 

    Operating hours vary, but you can view the scheduled hours through the link above. Dependent on weather and other variables, flights usually take off every 20-30 minutes. There is a ticket booth located in front of the balloon where you are able to inquire as to what the current day's flight schedule is and purchase your tickets for a certain flight. 

    I hope this helps, Scott! Have a wonderful vacation and please let me know if there is anything else I am able assist you with!

    Magical Wishes,

Hi-ya, Pals! I'm Lauren, a wife and mother of three who's enjoyed many special occasions at Walt Disney World Resort with my family and friends.

I now have pre-teens who check wait times in the My Disney Experience App just for fun, so I look for any excuse to return "home" often and would love to help you plan a little extra Pixie Dust for your next magical adventure.
