Deemed one of 2012’s best, Groupon and Orlando Balloon Rides in Kissimmee, Florida are once again offering the opportunity to save up to 55% on a hot air balloon flight plus a champagne toast and breakfast.
One hour before sunrise, voyagers meet at the convention center at the Radisson Resort Orlando Celebration, where the flight team greets them for their balloon ride. Passengers watch as the balloon fills with hot air before it lifts them skyward for a 60-minute tour of the Florida countryside. Once aboard, the ride features views of the region’s nature preserves, Walt Disney World, and the distant urban skyline. Upon touchdown, riders cap their adventure with a buffet breakfast and a commemorative flight certificate, with guests 21 and older toasting one another with a glass of champagne.
Located in the West Side of the Downtown Disney District at the Walt Disney World Resort, Aerophile’s ‘Characters in Flight‘ balloon takes guests hundreds of feet into the air via a tethered helium-filled balloon, offering a panoramic view of the parks and its surrounding areas.
For a limited time, Groupon is offering future Walt Disney World guests the opportunity to experience the balloon ride at a savings of up to 44%. Guests can purchase a ride for one person for just $11 (regular price $18 per adult) or two people for $20 (regular price $36 for two adults). In addition, guests may purchase up to 10 Groupons, but only 1 may be used per visit. The Groupon will expire on May 31, 2013.
For the next couple of days and while supplies last, Groupon is offering these large super-soft blankets featuring either Mickey or Minnie Mouse cheering on several popular teams from the worlds of the National Football League and Major League Baseball. Each raschel blanket measures 60″x80″ in size.
The following teams are available for Mickey Mouse: Boston Red Sox, Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants.
For the next six days or so, or until quantities run out, Groupon is offering a uDraw Tablet Bundle for the Microsoft Xbox 360 from THQ for $19 which is 58% off the retail list price ($44.98). The bundle consists of: the uDraw Game Tablet; ‘uDraw Studio;’ and ‘Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat.’
The uDraw Tablet features an intuitive interface that appeals to players of all ages, using a sleek stylus and drawing surface for creating digital artwork or playing touch-sensitive games. Also included with the package is the ‘uDraw Studio.’
First Book and Disney Publishing Worldwide are once again teaming up to fight illiteracy by delivering new books to children of low-income families and the educational systems that serve students of low-income families. Via a Groupon Grassroots campaign, First Book will be accepting donations of $10 per Groupon which will go directly towards providing four new books to children in need. Disney Publishing Worldwide has committed to matching each donation up to a total of one million books.
At the Disney D23 Expo in 2011, Disney Publishing announced it was donating $500K and eight million books to the cause which was founded in 1992 and is now celebrating distributing over 100 million new books in North America.
For the not-so-rare combination fan of both Mickey Mouse and football, Groupon is currently offering this large (46″ x 60″) micro-raschel, plush throw featuring Mickey Mouse donning the uniform of every NFL team along with the team logo and colors.
The throw is available for $19 and customers may purchase up to three of them with an additional two as gifts, while the offer and supplies last. Free shipping is also included in the price.

Just in time for the winter months, Groupon is offering a fantastic time-limited deal for Disney and Marvel lined, hooded jackets for just $19 each (shipping included), representing a savings of at least 62%.
Broken out into two separate deals, the girls’ jackets offer includes your choice of Cinderella (blue), Ariel/Aurora/Belle (dark pink), Belle/Rapunzel/Aurora (light pink), Tinker Bell/Periwinkle (purple) or Tinker Bell (teal). Each of the styles are available in sizes 4, 5/6 and 6X and include various trimmings such as ruffles and bows. Up to three may be purchased with this offer plus two additional as gifts. Of note is that all of the designs feature the new Disney Princess look.
Disney Online (NYSE:DIS) has recently begun teasing ‘Disney Family Deals,’ a website that promises its online guests that they will find ‘fantastic offers on Disney toys, vacations, clothing, collectibles, music, videos and more!’ In addition to the online deals, the site also promises to offer localized activities, products and services.
The underlying framework of Disney Family Deals appears to be that of Plum District, a site ‘for moms, by moms,’ which offers time-limited localized deals, or essentially exactly what Disney Family Deals promises minus the Disney-specific opportunities, which are more likely than not to be various offers aggregated from across the Walt Disney Company.
