I am 12 nights short of maintaining Marriott titanium status.

Usually I would pay $95 to enroll the company Amex in Member Rewards so I get the points. For this card the fee is $125. Will Amex let me convert my company card to Bonvoy Amex if I pay the $125?

Traveling to Orlando with my 2 year old daughter in December. She is into princesses and Minnie Mouse. We are planning to go to magic kingdom and do mostly outdoor rides and experiences. Looking at hotels it’s around $150-200 to stay at a decent 4 star like a Hilton or Marriott. And $600+ to stay at a Disney hotel. I get that the transportation to the park might be a little easier but is it otherwise worth it to stay at a Disney hotel?
