  • What a great ride. A tethered balloon takes you up hundreds of feet over wdw property at disney springs. lasts about 20 minutes, and doesn't flying winds gusty. If you've always wanted to fly in a bal...  more »
  • Very nice evening ride. They advertise that it rises to 400 feet it seemed like so much more. If you are afraid of heights this is not the ride for you.  more »
  • Okay, it's not the right deal so be prepared to acknowledge that your not going to be flying away over Disney. It took me three tries to get the chance to ride above Disney springs...once the wind sta...  more »

  • We purchased a Groupon and came to Disney Springs 4 different times just to ride on the balloon. Every time, we were turned away due to "bad weather." The staff doesn't care and most of the time is clustered in the ticket booth area on their phones and socializing. Today we were in line right after a ride was finishing up. The worker told us they were shutting down due to the weather forecast. The sky was blue with no bad weather in sight. I think this is very convenient for the workers. Who wouldn't want their shift to end by 11:30 every day? We are now sitting in Starbucks processing our refund with Groupon and will not try this again. I forgot to mention that there were other local families in line that had the exact same complaint.
  • We had a very pleasant flight, personnel in the balloon was very friendly and explained well about noise or vibration we will feel to avoid people get scary... Will have just wished to stay a little longer on the top... 3 minutes is a little short.
  • The man at the balloon asked me if I could see!? I said yes why? He said because there are storms in the area. My mother is blind and I found that very offensive. Not to mention it was slightly overcast with blue skies. Two hours later no sign of rain. I asked for a refund. He said call Groupon. Which def was not help. Terrible Terrible customer service. Not recommended.
  • Long Lines. Kinda expensive. Very short. The. The View from this attraction is actually one of the better views in the area, I'd say better than the Orlando eye.
  • Great view and interesting experience. Price is reasonable for a unique experience type attraction. We did not have to wait in line and the service was quick and friendly. Recommend caling ahead to make sure thry are flying - if it is too windy, it will be grounded.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
