Orlando Balloon Glow 2019
November 14, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - November 17, 2019 @ 9:00 pm
**PLEASE ORDER CAREFULLY – WE CANNOT PROCESS ANY CHANGES TO YOUR ORDER**
The 2019 Orlando Balloon Glow features hot air balloons glowing at dusk (weather permitting), tethered rides (weather permitting), the best local food vendors, retail vendors, activities for the kids and more!
Every guest must have an admission ticket in order for the event to limit capacity for comfort and enjoyment. The event will be fenced off this year with two entrances, one at the east end of the park and the west entrance in the parking lot for guests travelling by the free shuttle.
Tethered rides can booked in advance from just $20 per person.
Check out our new private tethered balloon rides for couples, where you will have your very own hot air balloon for a few minutes of alone time with your sweetie while taking in the event from above.
Our VIP tickets give you access to a special VIP seating area including climate controlled bathrooms. On arrival you will receive a champagne toast plus seating with a great view of the main glow which takes place at 8pm. Weather permitting, VIP guests will be given a free tethered ride in one of our modern hot air balloons with ADA access.
