Take off on a 3 to 4 hour fun-filled balloon adventure, leaving one hour before sunrise. Enjoy a tranquil hour floating above the sights and attractions of the Orlando area. Flights leave from our many locations in the WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort area but we check in every morning at our Orlando Balloon Rides Welcome Center. Once airborne, the pilot will point out the spectacular sights from the theme parks to the orange groves, and forests that have been untouched for thousands of years. Complimentary Champagne Toast after flight.

This was on my wife's list and it was a fantastic experience. The sensation of floating and calmness that it experience elicited could not be duplicated.

Booked this as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and it was perfect! Such an experience :) We had the perfect morning, the views were amazing, and such a smooth landing!

Great time, truely an awesome experience, Damien the pilot was so good with his wit and sense of humor. The only suggestion I have would be to have portable steps to help getting in & out of the basket. Even some of the men had a hard time. I would recommend everyone of all ages to experience this thrill !!!

Hello and thanks for posting on TripAdvisor. I'm very happy you had a great time with us! Also, I'm sorry that it can be difficult to climb in and out. Our insurance company requires that all our passengers can climb in and out of a balloon on their own steam. Their reason for this is that if you cannot do... More

The ride was very good. Only flaw is that there were too many people on board. We had to squeeze in. Overall the flight was smooth. The crew and other member are super good and their hospitality was one of the best. Will definitely ride again. Breath taking views from the top.

Hello and thank you for posting on TripAdvisor. I'm so glad you had a great time. I'm sorry you felt a little crowded in our basket. They are designed to not have too much extra room in case of a bumpy landing (which are quite rare) but you do have more space per person than most balloons which I'm sure... More

We rescheduled the ride three times before it ran so book for a day early in your holiday - the rescheduling is due to weather, not much they can do about it! On the day we arrived and waited in the hotel after signing our waivers. We were then allocated to balloons and driven to the launch site as the... More

We had a great time on the balloon rides (if you don't mind getting up early), but the early morning is totally worth it. The views are amazing and the pilots are brilliant fun. We had a chap called Mark, asked for him again this time we went, as he is so funny. It's not cheap, but it's not something... More

Of all the things you can do in Orlando this has to be the number one. Unfortunately our first flight was cancelled due to high winds.
