Best DZs to get A License Can't Post

I`ve got a couple weeks of vacation in November and would like to get my 'A' License.

I am new to skydiving, but have finished the first five jumps of the AFF program. Unfortunately the DZ I am learning at will be closing down for the season shortly, and I don't think I will have enough to time to finish.

So, a few questions:

1) Will other DZs recognize the jumps that I have already done? Or will I need to start from the beginning?

2) What is a reasonable amount of time to get an A License assuming I can devote myself full-time to the training? I'm aiming to get it done during my two weeks of vacation. Is this reasonable, or am I out to lunch?

Finally, can anyone recommend some DZs that offer the following:

1) Good weather for jumping during the winter.

2) Are AFF student friendly, and not just tandem factories. As I would be on a tight schedule, I'd prefer not to sit around waiting all day because they are swamped with tandems.

3) Have the resources (aircraft, instructors, etc etc) to help me achieve my goal given my time constraints.

4) Are fun, friendly, and safe.

Suggestions?
Thanks a lot for the help.
I just signed up here, and am really glad to have found this great resource!
