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.
Where and when do we meet?
We meet approximately one hour before sunrise. This can be anywhere from 5:30am to 6:30am depending on the time of year. We meet in a Perkin’s restaurant parking lot at exit 68 (Lake Buena Vista) off Interstate 4. The parking lot is at the Northwest corner of the intersection beside the Day’s Inn. We have free hotel pick-up available also.
How long is the flight?
Most flights are about an hour. However they can be as short as 45 minutes or as long and one hour and 45 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.
How many people are in the balloon?
We usually fly four passengers per balloon, however we have flown with a maximum of five or as few as two.
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.
!SAFETY IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY!
Ballooning is dependent upon favorable weather conditions. Therefore, if conditions are not favorable for a safe flight, the pilot may reschedule or cancel the flight.
Blue Water Balloons’ pilots have over 100 combined years of flying experience. We use only the most experienced pilots available. They are all licensed and certified by the FAA, (Federal Aviation Authority). We challenge any balloon company in Florida to match our experience!
Our pilots and crew attend safety seminars on an annual basis or they don’t fly for us. Many of our staff are safety seminar presenters.
We have the most modern balloons and equipment of any company in Florida . They are personally custom designed by our staff and then handcrafted by Head Balloons in Helen Georgia. Our equipment is thoroughly inspected annually by certified FAA repair stations.
We are fully insured and carry the maximum amount allowed by any balloon insurance company.
We are sorry, but we cannot allow anyone to fly that is pregnant.
