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.

Not knowing what to expect at all, we had a lovely and great experience. The company was very professional and the guys, Mike as our pilot, were pretty hilarious as well. The only reason for not rating this as a 5 is that the basket was a little crowded. The basket is divided into sections and if me and my... More

My husband surprised me with this certificate for a Hot Air Balloon ride We booked the ride in combo with our vacation to Orlando camping adventure with this being the high light. Great trip, great crew, fun time, and something I will always be glad we did. Enjoyed this!!!

Great experience all the way from booking (and having to rebook a couple of times) to the ride itself. Pilots and the supporting team are very professional. One hour of float time---priceless!

My wife and thoroughly enjoyed our flight. I have a small fear of heights but was comfortable during the whole flight. We are looking forward to flying again.

The pilots and crew were very professional, safety conscious, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. You have the opportunity to be involved in the set up and the take down of the hot air balloon. This was my first Hot Air Balloon ride and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I am extremely afraid of heights, because of... More

Everybody should try this early morning flight. After the good and clear safety instruction, we could lean back and enjoy the ride. We had to very experienced skippers onboard answering all our questions. Great experience.

My boyfriend and I did this for our 4 year Anniversary and I couldn't have picked a better activity for us to do! This was something that was on both of our bucket lists, so we knew we were going to do it at some point in our lives and I am so happy we chose Orlando Balloon Rides! The... More

My wife and I had our ride on Saturday. It was better than I imagine. It is very quiet except when they have to fire the torch to regulate the balloon height. The staff was great and I would definitely recommend this experience for anyone that is not afraid of heights.

We had gotten a gift certificate to Orlando Balloon Rides from our family as a wedding gift last May. We had never been on a hot air balloon ride and were nervous at even the thought of being up on a balloon in a basket with nothing much else around us. The experience was nothing like what we had been... More
