We went for my husbands birthday and had a great experience. Even if you are afraid of heights, this is an ideal trip. Jeff is very personable and you can tell he loves what he does. He is very conscientious and safety is his top priority. After the trip, you enjoy a delicious glass of champagne then off to a tasty breakfast. I like that he did not have his company logo printed all over the balloon (like some of the other companies).

We were doing things the other balloons weren't. Really going places it felt you could only get to in a hot air balloon. Also, Jeff was the absolute best. Beyond having every most awesome and rare certification, his energy was perfect.

We started off our morning being picked up from our hotel at 5am - Geoff was lovely, really friendly and welcoming! We were driven to a hotel where I signed a waiver, we were given a brief safety talk, met the other people who were going up in the ballon..... then we were taken outside until the best course for departing and landing were calculated. We arrived at out departure site, where you could be as involved as you wanted to be in filling the balloon - then the time came to hop in the basket, sit down and then off we went! Wow......... before you know it, you are up in the air! Geoff is full of information and you feel super safe........ the jokes ...... I'll let you decide - lol! We travelled approximately 9 miles in around an hour and it was the most amazing, beautiful and tranquil experience - I loved every second! Thank you so much - you are amazing!

I never thought I'd be in a Hot Air Balloon. This was a really great experience; something that I added and checked off my bucket list, on the same day. The added bonus, was the buffet breakfast, at the end of the flight.

From Our Editors

A hot air balloon is one of the most fantastic aircraft to ride in, as well as to fly.

With today's modern balloons and the pilots who fly them, statistically, a hot air balloon is one of the safest forms of flight.

Hot Air Balloon Flights operated by Thompson Aire are conducted 7 days a week at sunrise. Capt Thompson is one of the six master pilots and most experienced hot air balloon pilot in the Orlando area. Jeff has been licensed to fly balloons for over 40 years. Passionate about flying his entire life, his enthusiasm and knowledge will have you spellbound.

Since our flying area is around the Disney World area we meet near the main entrance to Disney World.

We meet at The Maingate Lakeside Resort.

The Maingate Lakeside Resort is located just 1.8 miles from the main entrance to Disney World on Hwy 192. From Interstate 4, take exit #64 and go west on Hwy 192 (5) five traffic lights and the Maingate Lakeside is on the right at the 5th light. Right behind Walgreen's.
