I'm planning an alumni party for my workplace's residents and fellows who will be at the national annual meeting for our specialty. The conference is at the Orange County Convention Center. I'm looking for a place within walking distance of the conference, with good food (doesn't have to be fine dining, or anything, but needs to be tasty) and a pleasant ambiance where our doctors can catch up on what they've been up to for the past year. It'll be a Tuesday night in September. [more inside]

We are off to Disney World, Orlando in just a couple of weeks. We have a 3 day pass with the water park + more option. We are 2 adults, a 5.5 yr old who will hit the height threshold, and a 9.5 year. We haven’t travelled there before. We are planning on visiting MK for 2 days, and leaning towards the zoo for the 3rd day. We want to see both water parks and the arcade. We are planning on following Touring Plan’s Magic Kingdom Two-Day Touring Plan for Junior Pirates and Adventures Ages 4-8. [more inside]

I land in Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday night at 8PM, and my 1-hour flight from FLL back home isn't until 7AM the following morning. What's a guy to do? When I transited through FLL last week, it didn't strike me as a lively airport. Any 24-hour coffee shops or restaurants in the airport? The Sheraton Hotel has a free shuttle and a bar open until midnight, so I could do that or get a room if I'm really willing to do that. Luggage is not an issue. Is one of those my best option?

Aside from Miami, does Florida have any place that has a culture not predominantly catering to retirees, families, or tourists? I'm an early thirties guy looking to spend a weekend somewhere in the state with a friend that's interesting, authentic, and youthful. Being near water is a nice to have, but not a requirement.

Looking for a great place to spend a week for my husband's special birthday in early November. Where is your favorite place to stay in the Keys? I think Little Palm Island, the Moorings or Sunset Key may be a little too quiet for him (and possibly too pricey? I haven't really checked)....I have been looking at the Hyatt resort and Spa, Pier House, and Casa Marina. Anyone have experience with these? Any other recommendations? Does not have to be in Key West as long as in the Florida Keys, we will rent a car. Thanks! [more inside]

My mother and I are going to Destin, FL, for a mother/daughter weekend this upcoming weekend. She is recovering from a broken shoulder. What are some things we can do together while we are there which will not bump her around too much (e.g. a bumpy boat ride) or demand the use of her dominant arm?
