Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

Is a ticket required for an infant? Also, is there a height or age requirement to ride? Thank you : )

Michelle B.  asked on  Jan 19, 2013

A:

Thanks for your question! All ages are welcome. There are no height or age requirements, but all participants will need a ticket regardless of age.

Q:

Has the age requirement been changed or is it still 18 and older only?

Diane M.  asked on  Jan 19, 2013

A:

Thanks for the question, and I'm very sorry for the confusion. The Fine Print originally stated that this Groupon was for ages 18 and older only, which was incorrect. We have since removed the incorrect information from the Fine Print.

All ages are welcome. Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult (18 years of age or older).

Q:

Can you use two at a time for a family of four? I see it says one per visit but wasn't sure if that was each person.

Natalie R.  asked on  Jan 19, 2013

A:

Yes, you are welcome to purchase multiple Groupons to accommodate a group at the same time.

The limit of 1 Groupon per visit applies to each person individually, meaning that one person wouldn't be able to use multiple Groupons to take multiple balloon rides back-to-back. I hope that helps clarify!

More Questions and Answers

Q:

Disney's website says ages 2 and under are free for this event (http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/destinations/downtown-disney/attractions/characters-in-flight/) but, I see several notes that all ages require a ticket. could you please clarify that even children under 2 require a ticket.

Jeff H.  asked on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

I'm sorry, I'm not sure where you see this information. Since this Groupon is only available for purchase until midnight tonight, I suggest contacting the merchant directly at (407) 938-9433. Thanks for your interest!

Q:

I see that you can use one deal for each person. I want to take my two daughters. So, I would like to get one of the one person deals for one daughter, and then one of the two person deals for the other and myself, to accomodate the 3 of us. BUT- I would be the only parent chaperoning the two of them, since they are both under age 12. Is this acceptable, for them to each have a seperate groupon, and I ride with them at the same time on the same trip?

a m.  asked on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

That will be fine. You all will be able to ride together. Thanks.

Q:

HOw can I'm sure that I will arrive and will be a place for everyone to enter in the baloon? Is there a risk of failing to place the balloon in the day when I go? What time should I arrive if you want to see the fireworks from the ballon? Is the departure and arrival in the same place?

Mauricio D.  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

A:

Mauricio- Up to 29 people at a time can fit on the balloon, but this depends on wind conditions. If there is a large party, meaning a party of up to 10, make sure to come on a day that's not very windy. Otherwise, the group may have to be split. Thanks!

John C.  from  Self  replied on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

Thaks, and about the others questions I wrote about? What time should I arrive if you want to see the fireworks from the ballon? Is the departure and arrival in the same place?

Q:

What time do you recommend is the best time to ride, as far as the view is concerned?

Venus C.  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

Q:

We are coming to DisneyWorld during high season in the middle of march to the first of April. I am wondering if it is difficult to get your turn on this hot balloon since there are no reservations or is that something that really doesn't happen; meaning you don't have to wait more than 1/2 an hour generally during high season to board the balloon.

Jacklynn W.  asked on  Jan 20, 2013

A:

Jacklynn- The wait time changes depending on the time of day. During daylight hours, it is typically 5-30 minutes, and in the evening it can be between 30-90 minutes. They recommend coming during the early day, not only because the wait is shorter, but because you'll get much better pictures! Thanks.
