Seat map is not a good indication of loads, and certainly has nothing to do with upgrade availability.

From your info, I assume you're Platinum? Did you put in for a sticker upgrade? PHL-MCO is 860-ish miles, so it requires 2 stickers.

Looking at A availability tomorrow (and not knowing which flight you're on), all flights from 6:55am are showing 6-7 A availability, except for the 8:55pm one which only has 2. So chances are good, but all depends on where you are on the upgrade list (i.e., how many EXPs are ahead of you, how many Platinums who requested the upgrade before you did).
