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 any of our 25 different 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, forest, and swamps that have been untouched for thousands of years. Complimentary Champagne Toast after flight.

Having never done anything like this before I think we were all slightly nervous on the early morning car journey to the Balloon office!! However, those gears were completely unfounded as this turned into one of the best experiences we have ever had as a family. With stunning views of Orlando as the sun is rising as well as being...

We had a great experience; this was our second time flying with Orlando Balloon Rides and it was every bit as awe-inspiring as the first time. The staff were friendly and professional, and if any of the group had any worries, these were immediately put to bed because all the staff were really knowledgeable and we knew we were safe....

Booked this up for our first balloon trip and could not have picked better company to go with. Pat, our pilot was excellent and pointed out the sights as we cruised along. The landing in a narrow lane was skill to behold. Packing up the balloon with the chase crew added to the experience. All in all, a great morning.... More

I booked a balloon ride for my son's birthday. We set off, did the safety brief, inflated the balloon and stayed on the ground due to low cloud. We re-booked a week later, but were told on the 'hot-line' at 4:45am on the day of the flight that it wasn't happening due to the weather. It seemed like a fun... More

I did this with my now husband as one of our 1st dates. We always laugh and say I swept you off your feet and to the clouds. (Literally) it was my idea and he has been in love with me since :-) We had a great time, beautiful scenery and great customer service.

Our first time riding in a hot air balloon. The pilot and staff were amazingly friendly. We absolutely loved this experience and would highly recommend it to others. The pilot made sure he made everyone feel comfortable. We had plenty of photograph opportunities!

The staff were very funny and friendly... I have a mild form of autism and generally do not function well in public settings although I was able to feel very comfortable around and had a fantastic time! The pilot that we had was very kind and had a lot of great jokes to crack, the transportation picked us up on... More

I would 100% recommend Orlando Balloon Rides to anyone considering taking a hot air balloon ride! Experience: As someone who is scared of heights, the balloon ride is incredibly smooth! If my eyes weren't opened, I wouldn't have even realized we were moving in the air! Additionally, our pilot, Mike, was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept our group... More

It was an early morning get up! We had to meet at 5:30am to sign paperwork and head out to the launch site for the balloon ride. I was impressed with the great attitudes of the staff that early in the morning...LOL! The gentleman that was our operator was excellent! He briefed us thoroughly and was able to give us... More
