“Great views”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We really enjoyed this. As someone who is not good with heights, or with small planes it was great to be able to go up and see the views and get some great photos.

It was really clear the day we went. It is amazing how spread out all the parks are - really gives you some perspective.

The day we went, it was very quiet, we didn't have to queue. There was only one other group up with us, so it was easy to move around.

Definitely recommend it if you have some time to kill.

“Loved the view”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

If you have a fear of heights or easily get motion sickness then this is not for you. If not - go for it! We did this on a sunny day and there was very little wind. The view was great. The pilot was very informative and showed us where to look to find the different parks, resorts, etc. If you go up at the right time in the evening you should be able to watch some of the fireworks at the parks. The next time we go back to Disney we want to do this again but at night to see all of the lights.

“Fun In The Air!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

This was a really enjoyable experience for the money. It only cost $18 each! The views are breathtaking. I would recommend doing this during the day or at sunset. The night time is good as well because you see it all lite up beautifully but you obviously see further during the day
