Characters in Flight at Disney Springs Closes for Refurbishment Today

The popular Characters in Flight balloon ride will be closed today through January 14, 2017. During this time, the giant balloon that’s filled with helium will be replaced and a new one bearing a new design will be unveiled. This refurbishment is normal and usually happens every five years or so to maintain the integrity of the balloon.

From 400 ft. up in the air, guests get a breathtaking 360-degree view of Walt Disney World Resort for approximately 8 – 10 minutes. The daily hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to midnight, weather permitting.
