DDW Pic 600. Characters in Flight
Characters in Flight
Today we say happy 4th birthday to the Characters in Flight balloon at Downtown Disney. This "attraction" had its official opening ceremony on April 21st, 2009. This tethered helium balloon, which can take as many as 30 guests, rises 400 feet above Walt Disney World. There are amazing views from this altitude. I took this shot in February of 2010, just after taking a ride with my little guy (pictured here staring at the balloon. Disney recently put a new balloon into service with a different paint scheme, but the ride is still the same.
