    Can you give me any information on the hot air balloon (ride) in Disney Springs? Cost, hours of operation and where we purchase tickets? Thanks!

    Hey howdy hey, Jacalyn and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    If an elephant or a flying carpet are not available then choosing a huge hot-air balloon filled with helium that carries up to 29 people 400 feet in the air is the next best thing.

    Aerophile – The World Leader in Balloon Flight is a phenomenal aerial adventure at Disney Springs and one of seven locations in the world. The 72-foot diameter balloon rides are $20 Adults (ages 10 and older) and $15 Children (ages 3 to 9). These prices may change at any time. You may purchase tickets at the attraction. Flight participants are on a first-come, first served basis. Basket capacity is based on wind speed and will not fly in winds exceeding 22 miles per hour or during storms. Make sure to take lost of pictures because on clear days you can see 10 miles away. I think the view of Disney Springs and Lake Buena Vista a beautiful from that height.

    Disney Dad Tip: My favorite activity at Disney Springs is reserved at The BOATHOUSE® BOATIQUE. There you can purchase a voyage on a vintage Amphicar and tour Lake Buena Vista in style.

    Jacalyn, remember to "look inside the balloon and if you hear a tune there's nowhere to go but up."

    Enjoy many Magical Memories from 400 feet up in the sky.
