Our 2010 venue is the landmark Peabody Orlando, the luxury 891-room convention/resort hotel which, along with its sister Peabody Memphis, has garnered awards in virtually every category of hotel operation and claims membership in the elite Hotels & Resorts Worldwide group.

Still resident at the hotel are the Peabody ducks which ceremoniously march in each morning to the marble fountain in the lobby, then retire to the Royal Duck Palace each evening. Their marching music is the "King Cotton" march as they traverse a 75-foot strip of red carpeting.

Located on Orlando's International Drive across from the Orange County Convention Center, the Peabody is minutes from the area's major attractions, including Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, MGM Studios, SeaWorld and Universal Studios, as well as many shopping centers. The Orlando International Airport is just a 15-minute drive away.

We are pleased to offer you the following special accommodation rates at The Peabody Hotel. In order that you may take full advantage of the many activities offered by the resort and the area's other attractions, these rates will be available starting Friday, April 23rd, 2010.

Reservations must be received by the hotel by Friday, March 26, 2010 in order to take advantage of the MHA group rates. Reservations received after that date will be accepted on a space and rate availability basis.

A two night deposit plus tax is due with each reservation in order to guarantee the reservation and is refundable on cancellation seven (7) days prior to arrival date. The Peabody Hotel accepts all major credit cards as a convenient means of making a deposit to hold your reservation.

Check-In Time: 3pm Check-Out Time: 12 Noon
