    Correspondent Jill Rappaport and host Al Roker appear on NBC's "Today" annual Halloween show at Rockefeller Plaza, Oct. 31, 2008, in New York City.

    First it was Regis and Kelly sipping mojitos on South Beach.

    Now, The Today Show is invading Key West.

    The Keys will host the live morning show's "Today Takes A Vacation" on that holiest of days for South Floridians, May 5, Cinco de Mayo.

    Jimmy Buffet is scheduled to be the special musical guest but the star attraction of the show will undoubtedly be the jolly Al Roker.

    You never know what he's going to do. Will he jet ski? How about dressing up like shark bait, attaching himself to a huge fishing hook and jumping into the open ocean? Guess you'll have to wait and see.

    Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Ann Curry, Natalie Morales, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford will also be along for the ride.

    Wonder will they roll together in the Madden Cruiser since John Madden doesn't need it anymore?

    The show is an ode to the best vacation spots stateside and also plans to make trips to the Alamo in San Antonio and a surprise city. The Today Show was shot once before on location in Miami Beach.
