    Looking for information on the hot air balloon experience at Disney Springs. I have read the basics, $18.00/$12.00 ticket, 8 to 10 minute experience, holds up to 29 passengers. Is it worth it? What did you like/dislike about it?

    Hi Julie, thanks for stopping by with your question.
    Characters in Flight..Operated by Aerophile, is a great experience while visiting Disney Springs. It’s a hand-painted helium balloon covered with flying Disney Characters. My family had a great moment; it was worth it!
    We had this experience at night, and views were absolutely beautiful. You will have 360 -degree views of Disney Springs and some other areas of WDW. We were lucky and got to see part of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth during our flight experience. We had lots of fun!
    The balloon ascends 400 feet, and depending on the wind, it can swing a little. I wouldn't recommend for those prone to motion sickness.
    Hope this helps your planning.
    Wishing you a wonderful day!
