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.

If you are looking for a great experience away from the hustle and bustle of DIsney & Universal then this is the thing to do. It's is a very early start but that is soon forgotten about when you get in to the balloon (after helping set it up first). We all met at the hotel where there teas, coffee... More

From our initial booking online, I knew this would be a good experience. The whole thing is really well organised by great people. It's an early start but it's so worth it. We flew in the biggest hot air balloon I'd ever seen and were overwhelmed with the scenery and sunrise. The landing was so precise and the crew just... More

This was is GREAT thing to do, if you are visiting Orlando. Our teenagers even enjoyed it, even though they had to get up early and be there by 5:30 AM. The balloon held 12 adults plus the pilot. Our flight was 50 minutes from take off until we landed...our pilot was late getting there, so maybe that's why our... More

On a family vacation, it was a last minute decision before coming home to ride in a hot air balloon. I called the day before, luckily Orlando Balloon Rides had five available spaces left. Stacie was very helpful and informative and helped book our family flight. We arrived at 5:30am, then they transport you to the destination and set up... More

Great fun staff. Pilot Glenn made the flight an awesome experience! The basket held 2 adults and 2 teen girls comfortably in our compartment. Landing was best part as it's the most dangerous. Fun experience for the whole family.

We were rather disappointed. It was very hazy-no fault of company and you could not see the outline of Disney nor downtown Orlando. Our pilot said very, very little unlike Christina's review. There was little concern of helping people in or out of the basket. There were over 20 people in the basket. 6 adults in one compartment was tight!... More

DO IT!! I just cannot imagine anything more stunning than seeing the sun rise from a hot air balloon. I purchased a balloon ride for my mother for Christmas. It was a wonderful perfectly picked gift! Of course, she couldn't go alone so I purchased an additional ticket for myself. Money well spent!!!!! We went on June 10th, it was... More

OBR is a must to do in Orlando. Our pilot Mike made the trip very much fun. Learning all that goes into getting a balloon ready was a learning time. It was a flight my wife and I will never forget. The staff was very friendly and always there to lend a hand. The view was something that can not... More

This is one of those "once in a lifetime" things to do. All of the employees of OBR were extremely professional and courteous. Our pilot, Mike, was extremely knowledgeable and out-going and made us feel safe the entire time. Riding in the balloon was smoother than riding in the elevator and Mike nailed a perfect landing. The champagne toast and... More
