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 our many 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.

Our original date was cancelled due to poor weather, Orlando balloon rides kept us well informed via email of proposed alternative dates. A very professional organisation. We had full confidence in the crew. Our pilot (Mark) was excellent, very informative and good fun. Be on time as they stick to a tight schedule. Remember your camera and binoculars if you... More

Orlando Balloon Rides was one of my favourite experiences EVER. I loved the combo of adventure and tranquility, the staff was incredibly passionate and informative and the sunrise flight was – in my opinion – the perfect way to explore the sunshine state. Note: 4 am start to the day! Need to wake up early for these epic experiences. Oh,... More

Had a great time on the hot air balloon during recent trip with hubby to Orlando, FL. The ride was smooth. The landing which I was most concerned about was very delicate. It was fun at the end when we helped pack up. It was a bucket list experience for us and I'm glad we paid for the experience. Was... More

Everything mentioned in positive reviews posted previously is absolutely on target. We did not encounter any negative aspect regarding the entire booking process and actual ballooning experience. So instead of repeating what others have already said, thought it might be helpful to provide some info to make your trip easier to plan. Their office, where you meet, is actually in... More

Very friendly and fun staff. This was a once in a lifetime experience that we highly recommend. Arrival time is between 6:00-6:20am, but its worth getting up early for. During the entire flight we felt safe and the basket was very sturdy. The flight lasted about an hour and ended with a champagne toast. They make sure to keep everyone... More
