PHOTOS – New design for Characters in Flight hot air balloon at Disney Springs takes flight

The new look for the Characters in Flight hot air balloon was unveiled this morning as crews worked overnight to inflate the balloon. We actually went out to watch some of the work yesterday morning before realizing the amount of work it actually takes to inflate this particular hot air balloon and trying our luck again this morning. Here’s our first look at the design.

The new balloon doesn’t have any Disney characters on it, so it’ll be interesting to see if the name sticks or if Disney changes that as well. Here’s a look at the old design.

Characters in Flight will re-open to guests on Saturday, January 14th.
