Description:

Imagine it: Just the two of you floating effortlessly above the ground spending a moment together you'll never forget.

Experiences like this make up the memories of our lives. With this romantic sunrise balloon ride, you and your companion will experience the thrill of wingless flight, see all of the area's great attractions, and spend an amazing day together.

You'll meet your pilot at 6:00 AM, conduct a quick pre-flight briefing and then select a launch site for the day from a range of 30 sites in the Disney area. Next, you'll launch a small helium balloon to determine the wind direction for the morning. Then you'll head to the launch site.

At the launch site, you'll have the chance to help out inflating the balloon and preparing for the flight, or just relax. Then its time to board the balloon and liftoff into the heavens.

Your flight will last approximately an hour, as you fly over a variety of terrain ranging from swamps and forests to resorts and theme parks. You may even see some of the area's unique wildlife including alligators! There is magic in the air in Central Florida, and what better way to see this countryside than with an early morning sunrise balloon flight.

This is an romantic aerial adventure that you will never forget!

  1. Are spectators allowed?
    Spectators may purchase "the chase package" for $20 per person to be paid at the time of booking.  "The chase package" includes:

    Attend the pre-flight briefing. Ride along to the launch site! Watch the assembly of the balloon and the inflation. Photograph the launch for your friends. Then jump on board our trucks and ride with our professional ground team down to the landing site.  Watch while your friends and family come in for a beautiful landing right in front of you while you take pictures all along the way. Participate in the champagne toast and then return with all of us for the all you can eat Breakfast Buffet.

    You literally do everything the fliers do except the flight!  All for $20 per person.
  2. Will we fly over Disney?
    Your pilots try to fly over the area's theme parks as often as possible. However, balloons only float with the wind direction of the day, so it is impossible to guarantee any particular path of travel. The flights don't always go over Disney but you can see the parks form almost all of our flights.
  3. Where do we fly?
    We have about 30 different launch and landing sites in the Disney area.  Each day is different.  What launch and landing sites we will use on any day is determined by the speed and direction of the wind that day.   Today's launch site might be tomorrows landing site or we might not go back to that site for weeks.
