Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the flights take place?
The flights are all in the Disney area. They can take place anywhere from Disney to Highway 192 and Highway 27, depending on wind direction.
Where do the flights start, and at what time?
Meet one hour prior to Sunrise at the Orlando Balloon Rides Welcome Center,44294 US Highway 27 Davenport, FL. 33897. If you do not have your own transport, hotel pick-ups can be arranged for USD10 per person, payable locally.
How long is the flight?
Most of the flights last about one hour. They can, however, be as short as 45 minutes or as long and one hour and 45 minutes. It all depends on the weather conditions on the day, and also the landing sites.
Should I wear any warm clothing for the balloon trip?
As it is not any cooler in the balloon than it is on the ground, we would suggest just dressing for how the weather is on the day of your flight. Please try to avoid open-toed footwear.
What can I bring along with me?
By all means bring along your camera or camcorder to record your unforgettable journey!
How high does the balloon go?
We can go anywhere from the level of the treetops to several thousand feet up, depending on wind speed and direction.
How many people are in the balloon?
With the private chest ticket, there are a maximum of two passengers. On shared baskets we fly anywhere from 4 passengers to 12 passengers in each balloon. The larger balloons have compartments in them for the comfort and safety of our passengers.
I suffer from motion sickness, so will I be affected by a balloon flight?
No. As the balloon moves gently with the wind, there is none of this sensation to concern you. It is genuinely possible to place a glass of water on a table in a balloon during flight, and not a drop will be spilled!
