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.

Unless you're the nutter who posted the review about his wife not liking the view, you will love this. I took my 15yr old son in late July and we had an unforgettable experience. Damien flew us and we had simply perfect weather - about as good as it gets apparently. Was certainly a very gentle landing. Food afterwards was... More

I booked this for my husband's birthday so that he/we could have a once-in-a-lifetime experience -- and it truly was! Absolutely beautiful ride, so peaceful. Our pilot, Damien, was very personable and funny. Helping to set up and break down the balloon was almost as much fun as the ride; watching the balloon fill with air, etc. When/where else will...

I always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon, so I jumped at the chance while in Orlando. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. It was so peaceful high above the beautiful scenery. It was even more wonderful to share the experience with my husband, daughter, and son-in-law. The crew was superb and the pilot was funny, but oh... More

I bought this for my wife as it was advertised that they go over the amusement parks, etc. Thought it would be real cool to see Disney or Universal from a bird's eye view. Anyway, she just came home and said the ride was shorter than they said it would be, the balloon spent its entire time over wetland, the... More

Orlando_Balloons, Chief Pilot at Orlando Balloon Rides, responded to this review

Hello and thank you for your review of Orlando Balloon Rides here on TripAdvisor. I must say I have quite a few issues with your review. For one, you didn't take the ride, your wife did. How can you even post on an experience that you didn't actually experience? We fly in the Disney area and quite often see some... More

We had a wonderful time... the service was top notch! You could tell from the moment we arrived that the staff was caring and safety was #1. Also... there were other balloon companies around us when we launched and you could tell that this company had the most modern, professional equipment. I think I would have been nervous flying in...

This was such a peaceful way to start our day in Orlando. This ride is definitely worth the time to do. It requires a lot of work before and after the ride so make sure to take a change of clothes because you do get dirty but would definitely do it again! Thank you pilot Mike.

2nd time was a charm for a hot air balloon ride with Orlando Balloon Rides. Originally a birthday present for my wife, we'd waited months to get back after the first time was cancelled due to high winds. Lady Luck smiled on us though and the professional team of pilots Glenn, Ian and Mike and support crew at OBR put... More

Funny group of guys. Breakfast was a little lame, but I understand the need to pay the money for the actual experience. Which is worth it! You can get a big group together and go all at once!
