Trip Report Florida trip report

Stayed 3 days in Orlando, 3 days in Miami, 1 day in Tampa&St.Pete's.
I had booked Sea World 2day pass ahead of time so we went there on 1st day. Lots to see. Extremely hot, so bring a hat or a towel. On 2nd day we saw the Shamu show, which was old, tired, and not impressive at all. What's with the silly video? And then the dolphin show which was spectacular and is a must see.
Ok, now pay attention here: DO NOT see the Hawaiian Lua show at the Sea Fire Grill. The show itself is not that great, too much talk, a fat man standing around with no shirt is not a sight I want to see while eating me grub. Too much noise, drumming became annoying in 5mins, the fire tumbler dropped the stick.
Now for the food: it was horrible, bad, tasteless, bland.
I had booked it not knowing the park closes at 6pm, and the show is over at around 8pm, our shuttle departed at 7:30pm. I was given a run around by guest services upon my 2nd visit as to why I didnt get a pass. Anyway, it's the cheapest show for a reason, I'd give it 2 out of 5 stars, the food gets 1 star.

We went to Epcot. Plan ahead if you are all adults or with kids. We ended up on a few kiddie rides. The car ride was good. The space ride to Mars made me real sick. The nations exhibits: well, some were good, some just fine, some sucked.
I skipped Universal Studios, Aquatica, Magic Kingdom, and Gatorland.

In Tampa we saw nothing, so nothing to report.
In St.Pete we went to that beach which was nice.

In Miami we stayed at the Thunderbird hotel in Sunny Isles. It had a pool and so-called jacuzzi. We had a 4 hour tour of Miami, which is great. Lots to see.
I say skip the Aventura Mall. I went to Bal Harbor beach, which was also nice. SOBE and Miami beach, along with Coney Island and Venice and Malibu are the most famous beaches in the US, so it's a must see.
Over all, I would come back to Miami any time.
