WDWNT Reporter Jose Eber has us a few photos from the West Side of Downtown Disney  featuring construction of the latest attraction coming to the Walt Disney World Resort, a tethered balloon ride:


The attraction is operated by Aerophile, but is still called “Characters in Flight


The short flight aboard the balloon will cost $16.00 for an adult, and $10.00 for children


The ticket booth features a small replica of the balloon and a number of “flying” character silhouettes around the center column

The balloon will take guests up to 400 feet above this platform
