You Can Fly, You Can Fly, You Can Fly!

I have never been a fan of heights. Slides scared me as a child. Ladders scare me as an adult. While I say that I'd love to skydive, I really just like the idea of skydiving. Let's be honest. I don't even like jumping off the diving board at the pool.

So when another guest at Disney mentioned this "really cool" attraction at Downtown Disney where you can go up in a helium balloon, I turned a little green. Steven, on the other hand, looked like a kid at Christmas.

So went went to Downtown Disney. We shopped, we walked, and I glared at the sky, hoping Steven wouldn't notice the giant red and yellow balloon. But he did. He practically RAN to it. I was secretly praying it would be insanely expensive, or that the line would be ridiculous. ANYTHING.

I mean, who trusts a HELIUM balloon? Seriously. You buy them for a birthday party, and they're on the ground a day later. Who would trust a helium balloon to carry them a thousand feet in the air? Or thirty feet. Whatever. 

My husband would, that's who. 

So I went, and held on for dear life. All the way up, and all the way back down.

And I lived, but just barely. 

And I might have had a little bit of fun. But if you tell him, I'll deny I ever said so. 


  1. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha....

  2. OK, that would have freaked me out, too, but it does look like it was worth it!

  3. It was cool, in a life-threatening, terrifying sort of way!
