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.

11 of us booked a balloon ride as part of my sister-in-laws 70th birthday, on Christmas Eve. What an experience! First, the weather was perfect - bright and clear. Organisation was efficient, friendly and just right. We set off on time in comfortable vans to the departure site, and enjoyed the whole experience of watching the balloons being blown up.... More

This for me was the second time I'd flown with Orlando Balloon Rides and it was just as great as the first time. I took my daughter with me this time round and pleased to say it was the same captain. Mike is always friendly and informative and puts people at ease with his humour. My daughter thought the whole... More

We booked this for Monday 19th December, but it was cancelled 4 times due to weather conditions. But is was worth waiting for. The whole experience was first class, the staff were great, our "Captain", Mike, from England was brilliant. We drove to a secluded adventure centre and set off along with 6 other balloons. We flew over woods and... More

My wife and I discovered Orlando Balloon Rides through a leaflet left at our villa during a recent trip to the area. As it was our honeymoon, we decided to take the plunge and arrange a ride. From start to finish, Orlando Balloon Rides were nothing but professional and friendly. It was very clear that they knew exactly what they... More

It was worth every bit to get up extremely early in order to see the sunrise inside of a hot air balloon basket. The staff also made the experience even more wonderful.

The balloon ride is fun and relaxing. The view in the morning is great. I read others comments that their guide is great to talk about local information. I didn't meet such guide but still enjoy the trip.

Thank you for taking the time to review Orlando Balloon Rides. Each flight is different and the pilots do try to cater to the mood of the passengers. Sometimes passengers enjoy a quiet serene flight, while other groups chat and ask more questions. We are happy you enjoyed the flight! More

Even though this event is pricey, it was enjoyable. Main gripe we have is not being able to understand the pre-recorded message YOU MUST listen to the night before your flight. Also the phone number we were instructed to call the morning of...again for further update on flight stated an incorrect number which caused much frustration within our group. We... More

You are briefed very well on what to expect. Everyone is very friendly. There will most likely be others in the basket, but we all had a great time. I did feel an odd sense of privacy in the balloon as my husband and I looked over the sides. They allow you to set up and pack the balloon which... More

We booked this trip with the hopes of proposing while up in the air. Unfortunately, due to weather, we had to reschedule a total of three times with the third being when we actually went about two weeks later. Still, this is not a comment on the staff just a warning that when they say it is weather dependent they... More
