    Default Back to Florida in June

    Getting excited now as less than 5 months till we jet back over to the sunshine state. Two weeks in Orlando, 2 days in the Hard rock Hotel (to make the most of early entry and fast passes included with the hotel booking) then down to Marco Islands for the final week. Really hoping for a better experience with our villa than the last time we went, we lost all TV channels and the villa was in pretty poor condition as we learnt the property was foreclosed. Got some compensation, but I would much rather spend time enjoying our vacation and not chasing any one about facilities...!! Anyone stayed on Marco Islands...? What's it like...? Plans are starting to fall into place with tickets for attractions and evenings out.....! Bring on June...!!

    I hope that you have better luck with your villa, must have been a big disappointment.

    We've been all down the Gulf Coast, but never been to Marco Island. I have read that it is a really nice place, so you should enjoy yourselves. You're not far from Naples, which is worth a visit, and the Everglades are also within easy reach.

    Hope the villa is a great one this time. We did four days at the Hard Rock last summer and had a fantastic time. The hotel is great and it is just brilliant being able to stroll back and forth to the parks. For us those four days were the highlight of our holiday.

    We've never done the coast thing, so can't help with that part, sorry.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    Thanks Guys, we added Marco Islands as it had some good reviews and brings us closer to visiting the keys too, looking into maybe taking a ferry to the keys if this would be possible, also looking at Naples and Miami as we have visited Miami from Orlando on our last visit which was great.

    I think the Sea Express ferry from Marco Island only runs December through April.
