Characters in Flight balloon at sunset in Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida.

Characters in Flight balloon at sunset in Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida. Nikon D700/28-300VR, 1/60s, f/5.6, ISO 500, EV +1.0, 122mm focal length.

Someday I am going to enjoy the Characters in Flight attraction at Downtown Disney.  For now, I will have to settle with photographing this unique hot air balloon as it floated in a pastel sky minutes before the Sun went below the horizon.

    Awesome shot, Scott! Us, too! Didn’t get to try it this last trip BUT we did notice the awesome silhouettes on the balloon. How nice to see it captured this way – you lucked out with a gorgeous sky! 🙂


  2. Fabulous mood and shades in the Disney sky ! Love those characters in flight.

    Oh my. You got me with a pun. You should be ashamed, but I know you’re not.

    Well, I’m going to have to say it: Up, up and away!!!!! The light on the ballon is fantastic.


  6. Great shot, Scott. I really wanted to seek out a hot air baloon festival this summer but never got around to finding one. That’s one thing I really want to photograph.

    Towards new horizons in a happy balloon – very appealing. 🙂


    • Well, this balloon is tethered (you can see the tether underneath the balloon) and can only go up and down and side to side as I witnessed. However, on most mornings around Orlando, you can see other un-tethered hot air balloons in the sky.


  9. Beautiful colors! I like that the balloon colors match the sky 🙂

    Fantastic shot! Mary Poppins is one of my favorite characters. She’s perfectly perfect on that balloon with the sunset highlighting the clouds.

    Wow the balloon compliments the clouds perfectly! Nice shot!

    Beautiful Scott, since I missed the Balloon Fest this year, this is a must to see. I’m still shooting for Christmas. 🙂
