An Aero30 tethered gas balloon rises 400 feet above the grounds of the Downtown Disney® Area. The balloon’s outer surface features hand-painted silhouettes of Peter Pan, Dumbo, Aladdin, Jasmine, Buzz Lightyear, and Tinkerbell. Its 19-foot diameter gondola can hold up to 29 passengers and a pilot, who guides the balloon skyward with the help of up to 210,000 cubic feet of helium. Visitors hover for 8 to 10 minutes while enjoying a breathtaking ride.

Aerophile

In 1993, two 25-year-old engineers, Matthieu Gobbi and Jerome Giacomoni, pursued mankind’s dream to evolve into kites when they reinvented the tethered gas balloon, which enables faster rides than the typical gas balloon. With several models to choose from, their balloons have established themselves as attractions in more than 60 places around the world, including Paris, Berlin, and Angkor Wat Temple. At Disney Springs™, the retail, dining and entertainment complex located at the Walt Disney World Resort®, guests are introduced to the clouds via Aerophile’s innovative balloon. With enough space to seat up to 29 passengers, the tethered aircrafts climb up to 400 feet into the sky with the help of up to 210,000 cubic feet of helium, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding attractions and landscape.

Customer Reviews

Go in the morning in the summer months...better chance of being able to go due to our daily afternoon storms. Groupon does say 10-6 so make sure you take note of that. The views are amazing. The guide helped point some things out and you can see parts of the Disney parks, Downtown Orlando and the Eye to name a few things. Only up 3 minutes so be sure to look around. Worth the Groupon price!
