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 recommend it to everyone. The pilot and crew are very professional and helpful. the early morning views were breathtaking along with the witty pilot commentary made for a memorable flight. One note is to bring something for your head if you stand outside of the heatshield. It gets quite hot when the pilot ignites the flame to maintain altitude.

WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!!! The whole staff was very polite, professional, and best of all FUN! Everyone on the trip seemed to be first timers, which made it even more fun, and I even got volunteered to help! My wife reserved this as a birthday present and I couldn't have asked for an easier, better time... While up in the air,... More

My family and I flew with Pat on 6/23. The flight was smooth as silk and we enjoyed every minute of it. I have a real problem with motion sickness, but decided to risk it. I didn't take any medicine before the flight and never felt bad. There is no sensation of going up or down. It's just smooth and... More

We took our very first balloon ride this year during our Orlando vacation and it was amazing! I was traveling with my husband and father-in-law as well as our children (ages 12, 11, 7, and 5). You have to meet before dawn at the main office where you fill out waivers and get your wrist bands. Then you hop in... More

My brother booked this for us as a Wedding present. Went with my Dad, Mother in Law, Husband and 18 yr old stepson. I was very apprehensive as i've never done a balloon ride before. The safety card was a little unnerving but essential reading! Pat, our pilot was fantastic, pointing out landmarks and telling us he set down on... More

We have always wanted to do this and there was an amazing groupon deal. With groupon, we always hope for the best and expect the worst. We definitely got everything we hoped for! Mike, our captain for the day, was hilarious. The chasers were amazing and everyone was so professional! Not to mention we saw some beautiful scenery (obviously!) Thank... More

If you do a call reservation make sure to review all information on confirmation email. We called since we're in theme parks a day before and it was scheduled for the wrong day even when they confirmed by phone our order. We spent 100 dllrs in taxi and now we're having trouble to get cancellation even when we're not able... More

Great Hot Air Balloon Experience. Mike our Pilot aka: Homie 2 guided us over swamps and pastures for a one hour flight at up to 1400 ft. Landed on access road north of Champions Gate Resort, now I know why we all signed release forms. Passengers help with unloading and loading of balloons into Vans. After a short trip back... More

This was a first for me and I booked this as a suprise present for my mum. We called the night before to check our flight was going ahead and they confirmed it was.

Following a weather cancellation two weeks ago, we took our re-scheduled flight yesterday with Captain Mike, our pilot. I'm a pilot myself (airplanes, only) and was fascinated by how subtle changes in altitude allowed Mike to "steer" the balloon. The winds were calm so our trip probably only covered ten miles but the views were magnificent, flying over lakes and... More
