    How often does the balloon at Disney Springs go up? What time is the first flight? What time is the last flight?

    Hi Hayley,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your Walt Disney World planning question! I am happy to help you think about your day at Disney Springs. I experienced a ride on the magical hot air balloon with friends at the end of a day at Disney Springs. It was amazing to experience such a unique view of so much of Walt Disney World from the perspective of a hot air balloon!

    Because specific logistics such as the hours of operation for this attraction can change daily, I suggest that you visit the Aerophile - The World Leader in Balloon Flight and enter the date of your planned visit for exact hours. This attraction does tend to have long operating hours daily, as Disney Springs does as well. The flight itself is about 8 minutes long. To my memory, there was then some time for the attraction to load and unload guests, but it went up fairly continually when the load and unload process were completed. Please do be aware that this experience has a cost. The current cost can be found on the website I listed earlier in this paragraph. Also, do note that if there are high winds or a storm, this attraction may not operate.

    While you are at Disney Springs, I hope you are able to enjoy some of the fabulous shopping and dining options! Nearby to your hot air balloon experience, check out DisneyStyle for trendy and unique Disney clothes. One of my favorite places to eat at Disney Springs is The BOATHOUSE.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Hayley. Please feel free to come back to planDisney with any further questions!
