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.

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

My son treated me to this wonderful experience this past weekend and he summed it up best by saying that he would be hard-pressed to find anything at all negative to say about it. The flight itself was amazing - a must do, but beyond that it's a must do with this particular company. Every person we interacted with, from... More

An experience that everyone should do at least once! We originally booked our flight for the morning before but after arriving at the launch site, they canceled because of weather concerns. Safety is a top priority. Not a problem we just rescheduled for the next day. The building where we meet (at 5:30am!) is clean and easy to find. After... More

As a preface, we are a middle age couple currently living in South Florida. We always enjoy reading and researching other people’s reviews before our excursions, so we thought we’d start sharing our own opinions and experiences. We flew with Orlando Balloon Rides on Sat July 11, 2015. I booked a Sat morning balloon ride as a surprise for my... More

If you are afraid of heights, this isn't for you. Personally I have no fear of hiegts, but when the bloon instructor says not to lean out the balloon listen, I didn't and when we were what felt like miles in the sky I dropped my car key and wallet. I told the guide to go down so we could... More

It was my first time taking a hot air balloon ride. I was nervous before the flight but the friendly team put you at ease - it's clear they're all very experienced and put safety first. The visit begins with sign in and registration, after which you travel with your fellow passengers to the launch site for the day. Once... More

What an amazing experience! We got to help set up and watch the inflation of the balloons! The ride and views were incredible! The guide and operator of the balloon very entertaining! The landing was smooth and helping load things back up was fun. The champagne toast at the end was fun too! Would love to take others!

Hot air ballooning for the first time with Orlando Balloon Rides was such an incredible journey. I'm now addicted to ballooning. Seeing the sunrise with all the balloons in the air is something everyone should see once in their life time. You will also see natural Florida from a whole new perspective. Customer service is outstanding. Every interaction from first... More
