I've been a couple of times Robert, there's some photo's in my album I think ( if not on here then on FB)

It's really calm and a lovely experience

We did a balloon ride in Orlando in 1996 - we were lucky enough to fly right over Magic Kingdom - it was a fantastic experience, not like anything else really, so serene. Would recommend it to anyone! :yes:

We did one a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the experience....apart from the rather bumpy landing that we had!
I was amazed how quiet things are "up there" until the burners are turned on.

We've not yet been up in a real balloon, but have done the tethered balloon at DTD with some little ones. :yes: (Children, that is). :D

That is a nice teaser for the real thing, I would imagine. I would love to experience the serenity of the whole thing.

I know it's lovely to see them in the sky of a morning. :yes:

I have not been up in the tethered one every time I went to go on it itwas closed due to the wind speed

We did a balloon ride a few years ago and would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Orlando. I really want to do it again next trip but I don't think we will have the time :thumbsdown:

We did the "Flight of Fancy"at DTD a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, although it really is only a "taster" for an actual hot air balloon ride.
We were lucky as because it was very quiet at DTD at the time, there were only the two of us on board and we spent much longer on it the is the norm. :thumbsup:
