Frequently Asked Questions:
Where do the flights take place?
Our flights are in the Disney area. They can take place anywhere from Disney to Highway 192 and Highway 27 depending on wind direction.
When do we meet?
We meet approximately one hour before sunrise. This can be anywhere from 5:30am to 6:30am depending on time of year. Please call for directions to our meeting place in the Disney area.
How long is the flight?
Most flights are about an hour. However they can be as short as 45 minutes or as long as 1 hour and 15 minutes. It just depends on weather conditions and landing sites.
What should I wear?
Dress like you were going on a hike in the woods. NO OPENED TOED SHOES. It is not any cooler in the balloon than it is on the ground so we suggest dressing for that particular day’s weather.
What can I bring along?
Feel free to bring along a camera or camcorder to record this once in a lifetime experience.
How high do we go?
We can go anywhere from treetops to several thousand feet. It depends on wind speed and direction.
Will I be affected if I suffer from motion sickness?
No. As the balloon moves with the wind, there is none of this sensation. A balloon flight is so calm, it is possible to set a glass of water on a table in a balloon and not spill a drop.
