    I have been to Disneyworld several times and never heard about the ride "characters in flight" at Downtown Disney. Is it a new attraction? Do you have to make reservations to ride? Cost?

    Characters in Flight, is a new attraction at Walt Disney World. It opened in the spring of 2009. I had the opportunity to experience Characters in flight this past summer. The views were truly spectacular.

    Unfortunately, advance ticket sales are not available for this experience. The flight of the balloon is very dependent on the weather. It would be almost impossible to pre-sell tickets for an experience that is so variable in operation.

    The prices for the flight, which is about 10 minutes long are:
    • $16 Adult (tax included) - Guests ages 10 and up
    • $10 Children (tax included) - Guests ages 3 - 9
