Overview
See Orlando from the air in a different way, on this sunrise hot-air balloon adventure. As the sun rises and you float above the city, your guide points out Orlando-area sights, from theme parks to countryside orange groves and forests. To make it more special, enjoy a champagne toast and light snacks when you land.
What to Expect

Meet your guide in a location near Orlando about one hour before sunrise. Once you meet up with your crew, you get to watch the balloon inflate for flight. Once it’s ready, you climb into the basket after listening to a safety briefing from the pilot.

During the one-hour flight, you watch the sunrise while your pilot points out Orlando-area sights. You may get to see Walt Disney World, Epcot, or Universal Studios as well as the orange groves, forests, and swamps of the central Florida countryside from high up in the sky.

After the flight, you toast with a Champagne or mimosa (non-alcoholic beverages are also available) and nibble on light snacks. You also receive a Flight of Ascension certificate by your pilot.

Your experience ends where it began.

The company calls you the night before the flight to tell you if it's a go or if they have had to re-schedule due to weather forecast. Before making reservation, you are advised that this is a possibility.
