Make your dreams come true with a sunrise flight over Orlando in a hot-air balloon. You’ll float effortlessly over the forests, orchards and waterways of Central Florida during this ultimate Orlando experience with an expert pilot. Then toast your hot-air balloon ride with Champagne and post-flight snacks. Don't forget to bring your camera for amazing photo opportunities.
  • Watch the sun rise over Orlando in a hot-air balloon
  • Get a top-down look at big-name Orlando attractions 
  • See the orange groves, forests, and swamps of central Florida
  • Celebrate with Champagne toast and post-flight snacks
What to Expect
Meet your guide in a location near Orlando before sunrise. Once you meet up with your crew, you get to watch the balloon inflate for flight. Once it’s ready, you climb into the basket after listening to a safety briefing from the pilot. During the flight, you watch the sunrise while your pilot points out Orlando-area sights. You may get to see Walt Disney World, Epcot, or Universal Studios as well as the orange groves, forests, and swamps of the central Florida countryside from high up in the sky. After the flight, you toast with a Champagne or mimosa (non-alcoholic beverages are also available) and nibble on light snacks. You also receive a Flight of Ascension certificate by your pilot. Your experience ends where it began.

The first hour was great but there was a problem. Pilot kept saying "I can't turn to the right" The chase crew had problems keeping up. We finally crashed to the ground, getting knocked around the basket and hit by tree branches.

Very nice staff, funny, it was a great experience. The actual trip is 1 hour, but preparation and post landing takes time. Overall all it was excellent.

This was a great experience for our daughters. So peaceful just surveying Orlando... We did a helicopter ride last time, but everybody seems to do these now so I'd recommend the balloon ride.

This was my second trip with an Orlando based ballooning company. There were several changes since the last time I flew a few years ago. The meeting place is now located in the Showcase of Citrus. The area has ample parking and nice picnic tables....More
