The Peabody
Orlando, Florida

Everyday at 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., the darndest thing happens... Five famous mallards march to John Philip Sousa's "King Cotton" march at the Peabody Orlando.  More than 350 visitors come to see the world-famous Peabody ducks in the lobby fountain each day.

The Peabody Orlando is a hotel located next to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The 31-story, 1641-room hotel was originally constructed in 1986.  Opened in late 2010, a $450 million renovation of the hotel added a 32 story building and resort amenities.  The expansion tower, standing at 428 ft (130 m), is the second tallest building in Orlando only being surpassed by the SunTrust Center downtown.
