FHello all! First time post here after many months of sneaking around as a guest reading helpful posts and tips.
I'll be visiting Cocoa Beach, FL for about 30 days for business (solo), then followed by a week of vacation accompanied by my famliy.
My family (wife and 15 Months old) planning trip to Orlando area. Plan is to stay at Orlando for 4 days and upon arrival visit Sea World (1day) followed by Disney World (2 days) then travel to either Ft. Lauderdale or Miami for 3 days and travel back to Orlando and finish the trip with 1 more day at Disney World.
Currently i'm planning on staying at JW Marriot Orlando (First time in JW) followed by another marriott hotel in or around Miami then finish my trip at Marriott's Lakeside Reserve (Orlando). I guess my intent is to stay away from my norm (FI,RI,CY, etc...)
Any hotel suggestions in South Florida along the east coast?
Keep in mind I have toddler who will not care and won't remember a thing visiting most sought after amusement parks. =)
Obviously this is our first time visiting Florida. Any recommendations for local attractions would be appreciated. Shopping/Food (Kid friendly) is our thing. Those with kids probably understand =).
Oh, and one last thing...
My nights show i have stayed 63 nights. Obvisouly with above trips, i'll rack up another 8 nights which gets me to 71 nights. 4 nights shy from Platinum. I don't think i'll reach "P" status even with my Marriott Visa. Should I bother calling reward line and work a deal??
