DEADLINE FOR RESERVATIONS MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2020 TO GET SKUNK SHOW RATES - NO EXCEPTIONS

CANCELLATIONS MUST BE MADE 2 DAYS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL OR A ONE NIGHT FEE WILL BE CHARGED

 

GENERAL SHOW INFORMATION

The 32ND Annual Skunk Show will be held on Saturday, October 10, 2020 at the Holiday Inn Orlando SW/Celebration, 5711 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway (east of I-4 and our former location and across from Old Town), Kissimmee, FL. 

The show hall opens around 10:30 am and the judging starts at noon.  It would be appreciated if you would pre-register your skunks so that your information can be entered into the computer ahead of time to save time the day of the show.  Payment can be made using the donation button found on our below page.

To make a hotel reservation, call Group Reservations at the hotel directly at 800-672-9601 or 321-401-1020, 7 days a week during normal business hours and ask for the "Group Code SK1".  Check in time is 4:00 PM unless early check in is requested.  Checkout is 11:00 AM.

The hotel has 2 towers so if you call to book, designate whether you want Tower 1 or Tower 2:

Tower 1  room cost is $64/night plus $6/per night resort fee (normally $18) and 13.5% sales and room tax = $79.45/night.  These are deluxe rooms and which are newly renovated.  Tower 1 rooms have a larger refrigerator and a microwave but has a slightly smaller bathroom than Tower 2.    NOTE:  Bathroom door opening is 28 inches for baby gate planning purposes.

Tower 2 room cost is $54/night plus $6/night resort fee (normally $18) and 13.5% sales and room tax -= $68.10/night.  These are standard rooms which have not been renovated yet but renovations are starting in May - it is unknown at this time if all renovations will be finished by the show.  The rooms are still very nice and even unrenovated several steps above the Ramada pool rooms.  Tower 2 has a larger tiled bathroom which, in our opinion, is better for baby-gating skunks.  It has a smaller refrigerator but if renovated will have the larger refrigerator.  It does not have a microwave but one can be requested and if available will be provided.      NOTE:  Bathroom door opening is 30 inches for baby gate planning purposes.

Tower 1 and 2 rooms have 2 queen beds or 1 king size bed.   Tower 2 rooms are closer to the show hall which is on the first floor and at the back of the hotel.  Tower 1 is on the other side of the hotel at the front.

The resort fee covers high-speed internet access in guest rooms and public areas, local calls, 800 # calls and credit card access, unlimited use of the fitness center, outdoor pool with fresh towels, parking, daily local newspaper available in hotel lobby and disney channel in your guest room.  This fee seems to be the new norm with the majority of the hotels but we were able to negotiate a reduction from $18/night to $6 a night.

NOTE:  Breakfast - The Holiday Inn has agreed to give  a Full American breakfast buffet at the rate of $8.00/per person - normal cost is $13.99/per person.  You must request the buffet at the time you make your hotel reservation.

REQUEST:  even if you find a lower rate for the hotel on another site, it would be appreciated if you made your reservation directly with the hotel.  By doing so, we continue to get a discounted rate and credit for the reservations which allows us to use the show hall at a reduced rate.  Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
