A familiar sight is missing in the attractions area.
The Characters in Flight balloon is no longer operating at Downtown Disney, following an accident involving a similar balloon at a park in Hong Kong.
Disney fan Web sites say the balloon has been pulled for inspection, as has a similar ride at Disneyland Paris, after the recent Hong Kong mishap.
The Standard, an English-language news Web site in Hong Kong, reports that five people were injured when a balloon sprang a leak and plunged to the ground from a height of more than 60 yards on Thursday. None of the injuries was serious.
There is no word yet on when — or if — the balloon will resume ferrying passengers into the sky above Downtown Disney.
A Disney spokeswoman confirmed that Paris-based Aerophile, the company that owns and runs the balloon ride, suspended operations until further notice.
