in Disney, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

The Characters in Flight attraction at Disney Springs underwent a makeover in January, and now the experience has a new name to go along with its fresh look.

“Aerophile – The World Leader in Balloon Flight” is the new moniker for the hot air balloon ride, according to the Walt Disney World website. Guests are treated to a 360-degree view of Walt Disney World during the 8 – 10 minute tethered helium balloon ride.

Aerophile is the Paris-based company that custom-built the ride for Disney. The new blue swirl motif replaced the previous decorations on the balloon, which featured Tinker Bell and other Disney characters.

Tickets to ride Aerophile are $20 for adults and $15 for children.
