Ascend 400 feet in the air as you hover over Disney Springs in the world’s largest tethered helium balloon. Feel like a real-life Disney character as you float through the sky aboard this hand-painted helium balloon! For 8-to-10 minutes, experience breathtaking, 360-degree views of Disney Springs and other iconic areas of Walt Disney World Resort. While you soar higher and higher, be sure to look around! Can you make out Spaceship Earth—the world-famous, spherical landmark of Epcot—in the distance? Custom-built for Disney by Paris-headquartered company Aérophile S.A., the Aéro30 is filled with 210,000 cubic feet of helium. The balloon’s 19-foot-diameter basket holds up to 29 people plus one Aérophile-certified pilot per “flight.” Guests on board will be treated to stunning vistas up to 10 miles away!
