In keeping with Hilton’s vision to “fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality,” it takes plenty of hard work, fueled by BLUE ENERGY.

That’s why, at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, we strive to have fun behind-the-scenes as we honor those who share our spirit of BLUE ENERGY.

What is BLUE ENERGY?  It is our passion at Hilton Hotels & Resorts to live our Values, deliver our Promise and celebrate our stories. It’s an expression of the unique spirit we show to our guests, our communities, and each other as Hilton Team Members.  BLUE ENERGY fuels our culture, and enables us to deliver service with positive spirit, strength and passion.

Our newest initiative is more than it was quacked up to be… the GREAT BLUE ENERGY QUACKATHON.

This summer, we created a new guest event – the DUCKTONA 500 – as part of SummerBlast! at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. In honor of this event, General Manager Tracy Walker and the Blue Energy Committee created their own version… a monthly rubber duck race in our lazy river pool for team members. Although the guest race is with yellow ducks, our Recreation team was able to find blue ducks for this very special event.

And with all our “ducks” in a row, the QUACKATHON was born.

All month long, team members who went above and beyond in their daily roles were recognized by having a duck in their name placed in the QUACKATHON race. Not only was it an honor, but the recipient of the winning duck won a cash prize!

At the quack of dawn (before most of our guests retreated to the pool), team members gathered for the inaugural race. The rubber ducks were released from one of the bridges over the lazy river… and the excitement built as they traveled toward the finish line.

This was a sight to see. It made team members (and several guests) literally quack up!

Who were our first winners?

 •  Third Place  – Sergio M (HOBC Concierge)

Sergio was recognized for loaning a guest his very own pair of dress shoes for the evening. The guest had an anniversary dinner and forgot to pack dress shoes to go with his suit.
