You can change the sort order for bubble charts by setting the default for bubble draw order, or you can individually move one or more bubbles to the front or back. To set the chart's draw bubble order, go to the Sort tab in the Format Chart task pane.  You can sort by the series display order in the spreadsheet, or you can choose to sort by biggest in back (default sort). You may also define a custom sort for your bubbles.

If you want to move one or more bubbles to the front or the back, right click on either the bubbles or their associated bubble labels and choose Move to Front or Move to Back. You may also designate a custom bubble order via the Format Series task pane.
