This was the 3rd attempt for me to get photos and video of the Characters in Flight balloon in the air, and I finally succeeded. I spent part of Saturday morning waiting, but it was too windy. I have 4 videos posted to JeffLangeDVD.com – including lift-off, landing, one video from the Marketplace and another from Saratoga Springs. Remember I have Remy at Chefs De France too! I was told today that Characters in Flight may not make the April 1st opening date, due to regulations. (maybe Saturday, but no day is set in stone yet).
I think this is one of the most popular items for my site since I slept in Cinderellas Castle!
From 535, you can see the balloon over the trees:
Over Pleasure Island:
The balloon was going up and down consistently from the time I arrived to the time I left an hour and a half later. Remember I have video here!
