We took the kids to see the Peabody ducks march at the Peabody Hotel in Orlando followed by a short weekend vacation at Coronado Springs Resort at Disney World.
The Peabody Ducks March is a tradition of the Peabody Hotels that stretches back to what was essentially a drunken prank by the Peabody’s general manager of the Memphis location in the 1930s. The prank resulted in such an enthusiastic response that the Peabody has continued the duck march for 75 years! The Peabody ducks live in their own “penthouse” on the roof of the Peabody. We had a chance to take the kids up to see the duck penthouse and they really enjoyed this special treat.
After the duck march, we headed out for a quick weekend vacation with some friends at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This is a great resort that feels almost more like a deluxe Disney resort, rather than a moderate resort. We enjoyed dinner at Maya Grill; a true hidden gem that often has walk-up availability. The food was AMAZING! Quickly rising near the top of my choices for Disney dining.
