    I have not done this - but here is a complete description of it off the Disney Website.

    Characters in Flight operated by Aérophile takes you up in a giant tethered balloon 400 feet above Downtown Disney Area! Ascend in the sky for approximately 8 to 10 minutes and experience a breathtaking, 360–degree view of Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
    And you'd know those silhouettes anywhere — it's Mary Poppins, Aladdin, Dumbo and other characters from some of Disney's most famous films! See them across the surface of the internally illuminated balloon that rises above you! It's a special design just for the Walt Disney World Resort.
    This whimsical balloon — the Aéro30 — was built by Aérophile S.A., a company with headquarters in Paris, France. It's the world's largest tethered gas balloon! The balloon itself is attached to a gondola that is 19 feet in diameter and holds up to 29 Guests and the pilot at a time. Guests board from a specially designed platform and then, once in the air, revel in a spectacular view of vistas up to 10 miles away!
    Weather permitting, the hours of operation are every day from 10 a.m. to midnight.

    Ticket Prices:
    • $18 Adult (tax included) - Guests ages 10 and up
    • $12 Children (tax included) - Guests ages 3 - 9
    • Free- Guests 2 and under
    Tickets may be purchased at the attraction's ticket window.
