    Hi! I've heard in Downtown Disney there is a hot air balloon ride. We've never been on one and I know my kids will love it! (So will I!) Can I use Disney Dollars to pay for that? is there anywhere that I can't use Disney Dollars? Thanks!!

    HI Lori!

    I hope your day is going well! The experience you are talking about is called Characters in Flight operated by Aerophile. It's not really a "hot air" balloon, it is tethered down and uses 210,000 cubic feet of helium to get you up to 400 feet in the air. The balloon is impressive and I am hoping to take a ride when we go in June! Disney Dollars are a great form of payment while at Walt Disney World and most merchants at Downtown Disney should accept them. I was able to research it for you and yes, they do accept Disney Dollars.

    I hope you and your kids enjoy the ride! Thank you so much for asking the Moms Panel! Have a Magical Day!
