    I need help n choosg from 2 activities. It's I, dh and dd8 going to WDW 3/4-3/11 stay@POR. We're planning 1 day @ AK 3/6 and then spendg time @ our resort along w/Carriage Ride from POFQ or taking boat 2 DD & going on Balloon Ride. ? is which ride? Th

    Christine,

    Normally I would suggest the balloon ride, since the views are amazing, and when you are done you are in the heart of the Downtown Disney area, ready for shopping, dining, and fun.

    HOWEVER, the Characters in Flight balloon is extremely dependent upon the weather being perfect. Of course a carriage ride can get rained out too, but the balloon ride is often sidelined from heavy wind, rain of course, and even sometimes the threat of inclement weather. Since you don't want to stand around on your vacation waiting to see if it would happen, I would do the carriage ride.

    You can still go and enjoy Downtown Disney after the carriage ride, and the carriage experience is a nice family moment.

    Have a magical vacation!
