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, and forests that have been untouched for thousands of years. Complimentary Champagne Toast after flight.

I was not prepared for the awesomeness that I experienced when I took this amazing ride.

This is something you absolutely have to experience for yourself!! My wife and I are... More

The peace you feel up there... where all noise falls away and you are alone with your thoughts. Everything seems so small and beautiful. The pilot and crew were amazing. Very nice, courteous and knowledgeable. Best part of my trip.

Ballooning was a once in a lifetime bucket list sort of thing. The company picked us up at the hotel. (We booked by the way via Viator.) The experience was amazing; the pilot was knowledgeable about the area. The views were stunning and something that is off the beaten path. The only thing that I was not expecting was that... More

So happy to hear you loved your adventure with us! We do ask for assistance with the set up and pack up as often the passengers want to be involved in all aspects of their flight. The assistance is appreciated but not mandatory. Thank you for your review! More

This was our anniversary gift and it was incredible. It was very calming once we got in the air. The crew was amazing and had fun with us. We had to reschedule a few times due to bad weather but it was well worth the wait. Well organized and very professional. I can't wait to tell friends and family and... More

The pilot and staff couldn't have been more helpful. We paid £99 per person through ATD and it was worth it - a nice break from Mickey Mouse

We had the most fantastic experience. Although it's a very early start it was well worth it. The staff are wonderful. This is a must.

A wonderful experience so quiet and peaceful in the air. Take off was so gentle and preparation of the balloon was exciting to watch and help where needed. Landing was one rough bump but nothing to get anxious about.

Everything was smooth but it was a very hazy day and foggy. We were going very smoothly unto we ended up in a residential area in the bankment. We were literally a foot above the water and managed to get on the bankment. It was scary. Don't think we would do this again.

It sounds like you had an exciting flight! Our pilots are incredibly experience so I assure you that you were in safe hands. It is common for pilots to take balloons down to water level to add some fun to the flight. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy that part of the flight. Thank you for... More
