Itinerary

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.

We were instructed to call the night before and check for possible cancellation for weather conditions. Ours was rescheduled twice and we finally had a successful flight. Better safe than not!
