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.

Well-organized, professional and relaxed crew and staff made sure any passenger jitters were minimized. The take-off and flight on an absolutely perfect Central Florida morning with 70 degree F temps and one perfectly placed cloud to provide color to the sunrise were the stuff of imagination. The landing had just the right level of excitement to whet the appetite for... More

I have played HCGC several times since my 3/19 review. Each time the conditions have gotten better. The fairways have grass now. The greens are rolling well. There are some maintenance issue, but I will get to that later. After speaking with greens keepers of several nearby courses, I now I believe that I was too harsh in my criticism... More

We visited here during our Honeymoon. This was one of, if not our favourite thing we did during our whole holiday. The flight was fantastic with great views. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The flight lasted about 1 hour but the whole experience took about 4 hours. We would definitely fly again!

The balloon ride was great but it was hard to get of it. They should have a small ladder to get out of it. All so when we got back. From the ride. We were supposed to have a full buffet breakfast. Rice Krispy bars and coffee and grab gabardine is not what l call a breakfast buffet . For... More

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!
