So cool. We were lucky enough to get a last minute seat at the bar for the 5:00 parade from the lobby pool to the rooftop palace.

Come at least 30 minutes ahead. The mezzanine has the best viewing areas. Nice bar with drinks are available. Lot of to do about a few ducks taking a short walk...but cute..worth seeing...once.

The ducks march down to the lobby at 11am and back up again at 5pm. You need to arrive at least 45 minutes before. A very cute and querky little activity.

You would have to go several hours early in order to see four ducks. Lots of hype for little action. You need to be able to stand because seats are at a premium.

This question has been answered...the ducks arrive at 1100 every morning...and depart at 1700. Suggest you get to the hotel early...say 9-10...have a coffee and nudge into just outside the lifts. Be prepared to be jostled... More
