    Mike was our pilot and made the experience one to enjoy! He was very funny. If he says anything that might make you question his experience, don't believe him because you can trust he is a very intuitive pilot. Mike even got us close to the water for some truly amazing photos. The whole team dynamic from start to finish will have you laughing! Be prepared to participate in the set up and clean up of the air balloons and really get involved. I would definitely recommend this experience to all my friends and family. The Champaign at the end and a little history lesson was a very nice touch to celebrate our successful "crash landing"!

    This was my 2 balloon ride, the first for my wife and I have to say the Orlando Balloon Company took first class to a whole new level. Pilot Mike and his crew made this a moment we wine ever forget. My previous flight was with another company and while they were a great experience as well, the Orlando Balloon team made it personal, comfortable and an overall wonderful time. Can't wait to do it again.

    Always wanted to travel by hot balloon so booked a surprise Xmas Eve present for the husband and children. It did not disappoint! Breath taking, thrilling and so much more than I imagined it would ever be. Mike was a wonderful pilot and took time out with both my children to answer questions and show them the ropes! Champagne and juice after topped off a wonderful morning. Collection and drop off to our hotel was faultless. Highly recommend!

    Booked a hot air balloon ride for me and my 16 year old twins,got Uber to site at 5.30 am.met mike our pilot who gave us a warm welcome.set off in van with ballon in trailer.after visiting 1st site for take off the wind was going in the wrong direction so left and traveled for 10 mins to next site.watched two balloons get blown up which was impressive,had safety talk and climbed aboard with 14 other people.mike started filling the balloon with gas as the other balloon set of and went over the horizon we shortly followed in the same direction and slowly made height,the views were amazing as we made our way threw the morning mist and rising sun,flew for around an hour with lots of information from mike of the surrounding area.the views were fantastic off Disney down town Orlando,golf courses the town off celebration,swamp lands and all the eye could see.we went up to around a thousand feet and traveled at about 6/10 miles an hour.both balloons were in constant communication to help and advise on air flow and wind direction.after an hour we started to descend to the landing field.we got close to trees and touched down with a big bump then went up again and after the 3rd attempt after scrapping a couple of trees,over a lake we were safely back on safe ground.we had a crew of vans and helpers to meet us with a champagne toast.we then were taken back to headquarters for coffee and snacks.we bought our pictures from the photographer who took pictures of us on takeoff and were each given a certificate of flight.mike was an amazing funny informative skilled pilot who made us feel safe and in very professional hands,he knew when to crack a joke but also knew when to make us all do exactly what was needed in flight and on landing.the whole crew from the photographer to all of the ground staff were professional friendly and made the whole experience the best thing me and my boys have ever done on any Holliday.the whole experience was amazing and will never be forgotten by me and my boys who at 16 years old are hard to please at that age,I’ve never seen them smile so much.you must do this if visiting Florida.better than any park or roller coaster.thank you so much mike and crew for the best time ever.if ever back in Florida we will be back ballooning.any one who reads this,do not hesitate,just book and have an experience of a life time.many thanks from Graeme max and zac

    Frequently Asked Questions about Orlando Balloon Rides

    After purchase, do I need to set-up a reservation date?
    Yes, after purchase, you will need to call the phone number listed on your E-ticket voucher to set-up a flight date/time.

    Where do the flights take place?
    Our flights are in the Disney area. They can take place anywhere from Disney to Highway 192 and Highway 27 depending on wind direction.

    Where and when do we meet?
    We meet approximately one hour before sunrise. This can be anywhere from 5:30 am to 6:30 am at the intersection of Interstate 4 and Highway 27. From Interstate 4 take Highway 27 (Exit 55) and go north. Stay in the left lane and take the very first left turn towards McDonalds and Wendy’s. Our location is on the right hand side just past these restaurants.

    Are there any restrictions as to whom can fly?
    Health restrictions are few and far between. Unfortunately, due to insurance restrictions, we cannot fly pregnant women or children under 4.

    What type of weather conditions are needed to fly?
    Hot Air Balloon passenger flights take place in winds less than 10 knots, with no rain or approaching storms in the immediate area. Flights also require visibility of at least 2.5 miles.

    What should I wear?
    Dress as if you were going on a hike in the woods. NO OPENED TOED SHOES. We always suggest practical wear, such as long pants, a light jacket, a hat and no sandals or high heels. It is not any cooler in the balloon than it is on the ground, so we suggest dressing for that particular day’s weather.

    What can I bring along?
    Feel free to bring along a camera and binoculars to record this once in a lifetime experience. We recommend also bringing extra batteries and a protective camera case.

    How high do we go?
    Though the altitude record for hot air ballooning is 90,000 feet, the height of passenger flights ranges anywhere from treetops up to 2,500 feet.


    How fast do we fly?
    The balloon travels the same speed as the wind. An average flight is approximately 7 miles in length.

    Can anyone fly the balloon?
    No. To fly a hot air balloon you must be a licensed balloon pilot. Much like a fixed wing pilot, balloon pilots go through extensive training including ground school, written exams, and hands-on flying.

    Will I be affected if I suffer from motion sickness?
    No. As the balloon moves with the wind, there is none of this sensation. A balloon flight is so calm, it is possible to set a glass of water on a table in a balloon and not spill a drop.

    How long is the flight?
    Most flights are about an hour. However, they can be as short as 45 minutes or as long as 1 hour and 45 minutes. It just depends on weather conditions and landing sites.

    What can cause the cancellation of a flight?
    As safety of the passengers, crew, and equipment is of utmost priority, flights will sometimes have to be canceled. Various factors can cause cancellation such as weather conditions, equipment malfunction or pilot injury or illness. Your safety is our concern and we will not fly if this is jeopardized. If your flight is canceled, simply reschedule for another flight.
