It may seem like everyone has been to Orlando at some point or another – but few have seen it from the air. Helicopter rides over the city and its famous theme parks are easy to find and not as expensive as you might think. They also allow visitors to experience everything from the Disney World fireworks to SeaWorld from a spectacular point of view. Here is a comparison of Orlando helicopter rides:

Narrated Helicopter Flight Over Theme Parks

How’s this for a novel way to see Orlando’s theme parks? This helicopter ride takes in Universal Studios, Disney Complex and Orlando Eye from the sky, with narration by the pilot. There is also an option to tailor the flight, including other highlights such as Old Town Kissimmee, Gatorland and SeaWorld, depending on your preferences. On the way there will be a chance to learn more about the birth of Orlando and the history of the parks, with plenty of time to get a few pics that will (probably) break Instagram. It’s not as expensive as you might think either. From €59.38.

Private Helicopter 45Min Fireworks Tour over Orlando Theme Parks

One of the highlights of a trip to Disney World in Florida is the firework display that takes place pretty much every night. For anyone who has either seen it on terra firma, or just wants to say they have seen the display like few others, this helicopter ride gives a bird’s eye view. During around 45 minutes of flying, not only will you catch a Fireworks show from the air but you will also see Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, Universal Studios, Volcano Bay, SeaWorld and the Orlando Eye glistening with hundreds of lights. This is a private helicopter tour and every seat is a window seat – the original soundtrack to match the show is even played through premium headsets. If you want to treat friends or family to something special in Orlando, then this is it. From €306.92.
