New Characters in Flight Balloon Design Officially Debuts

The familiar Characters in Flight balloon was recently outfitted with a fresh design that complements the recently transformed look of Disney Springs. The balloon is updated every four years, giving the team the opportunity to create a new look for the balloon.
Matthieu Gobbi, GM of Aerophile (the company operating the attraction), said that “the new balloon envelope was inspired by the springs and the element of water – it’s very coherent, as the balloon floats in the air, then lands on the water of Lake Buena Vista.”

The color palette, with soothing blues and a scrolling pattern that makes me think of gentle ripples in the water, definitely seems to fit even more seamlessly with the overall aesthetic of Disney Springs.


Adult pricing is $20 per person and children (ages 3-8) are $15 each. Guests who visit the attraction before 10:00 a.m. can buy tickets for only $10 per person, regardless of age. The location opens daily at 8:30 a.m., weather permitting, and wait times are typically shorter earlier in the day.


Just for reference, here you are photos showing the former design of the Characters in Flight balloon:
