    We are planning on spending some time at Downtown Disney when we travel to WDW later this month. Saw that there is a "hot air balloon " ride over the lagoon. Is this a kid-friendly ride for a 5year old? How long is the balloon in the air? Thanks

    Hi Marnie,

    Characters in Flight is absolutely kid-friendly! Children under 12 must fly with an accompanying adult.

    While the hot air balloon soars above Downtown Disney, it is safely tethered to the ground.

    Each flight is for six minutes although some guests report flying for up to ten minutes.

    Happy flying!
