Description:
Enjoy one of the most romantic experiences available, a private hot air balloon ride over the serene Orlando countryside.

As you gently leave the bonds of earth, you will float effortlessly over cypress trees and the beautiful blue water of Orlando's lakes and waterways. Smell the orange blossoms in bloom and enjoy all that beautiful Central Florida countryside has to offer.

You will meet approximately one hour before sunrise and after selecting our launch site, you will head out to begin the inflation process for your hot air balloon adventure.

As a passenger you are invited to become a "Designated Crewmember", joining in the inflation process and learning firsthand about ballooning, before you climb aboard for your majestic balloon flight.

As one of the premier balloon operators in Central Florida, your balloon provider has been operating continuously and accident free since 1987. All pilots are commercially licensed and insured, with over 20 years experience flying in Orlando and Central Florida.

Ballooning is an intoxicating experience, and an absolute must for any romantic! This is a skyward 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.

"We had the absolute best time. Our pilot (Jeff) was funny, extremely knowledgeable, and put us at ease. Jeff pointed out things to see we might have missed! We highly recommend Cloud 9 Living and flying with Thompson Aire. Our landing was as smooth as walking, not a bump or tilt, we just landed as smooth as can be. Thank you, Jeff! "
