always wanted to get on a hot air balloon without having to travel out west. this is why Disney has it all! they offer everything from everywhere to all of its guests. Disney is affordable for everything they offer!

Get a groupon for this. It only runs when good weather so be aware of the weather the day you going. If windy it’s grounded. Great view during the day. Did not try at night yet.

If its windy they shut down the ride. For good reason. When we went up it was scary, the kids were unfazed lol. However with the little bit of wind we had the balloon was swaying, so i cant imagine when its really windy. However,...More

Probably yes. Depends on the four year old. It can be a little shaky if really breezy. It is always fun. Quick ride up and down.

It seems to be best to go in the morning. Once it gets windy they close down. Call before going. They open early before Disney Springs even opens.

Hi, yes it is open after 6 pm, and even after dark! No need to pre book, just turn up but be aware that it doesn't operate in high winds. I do not know about Groupon sorry.
