    So, while this is totally off base. Do any of you that have had your wedding there recommend a flavor of wedding cake?

        Hi Girls, I have a quick question. I'm starting to get a bit nervous about the heat in June. Probably because I just got back from DisneyWorld and is was SOOO hot down there. So as a back up to the Tropical restaurant, which I really love, I wanted to see what my other Private options would be that include Air conditioning.

        I have heard about the Convention Center, but I can't seem to find much info online about the cost and what you are able to do there. If anyone has information about that I would greatly appreciate it.

        Also, I remember seeing somewhere on this forum about renting out one of the other restaurants. I haven't asked Reyna about it, but thought I would see if any of you had some input. Thanks so much!!

        I am actually going to be meeting with Reyna on the 30th so hopefully I'll come back with answers to alot of our questions!

        Leah =)

          To comment on the heat it is warm. However, I hear that the tropical is not that hot. I did hear the the mediterannean restaurant is extremely hot. The breeze from the beach is suppose to keep things very cool. I would see what other people have to say but that is what I have been told.

            My wedding was on 7/16 and it turned out wonderfully after all the stress and uncertainty of trying to get things done and questions answered entirely by email. Wanted to pass on a couple things:

            1.) Bring BUG Spray - A couple of my friends left w/ big insect bites to remember the trip by. We were told by an employee that their rainy season was perfect breeding weather for mosquitos. There are a lot of ponds by the buffets and lobbies we could have especially used spray in those 2 places. Mosquitos were pretty bad at our aquabar reception also.

            2.) Bring all the emails that confirm your wedding details. They tried to switch prices on us but it helped to have in writing what was previously agreed upon. This includes the resort photographers. They must have just recently updated their prices but I was able to get the price initally relayed to me by the WC b/c I had it in writing.

            3.) I made the mistake of becoming one big ball of worry the last 2 weeks before my wedding. Please do not make that same mistake. Just make sure you have the date and time you want and that they confirmed receiving your wedding details sheet. Everything else will be covered by a hour long meeting w/ the WC when you get there. Karla was great and tried really hard to meet all expectations. I saw Reyna once while there and was not her biggest fan since she stopped emailing replies the last couple months without any explanation and Karla started answering emails a month before my date.

            In the end, it was what we had pictured our ceremony being. Our dinner reception was at the steakhouse in its new air conditioned location and everyone loved the food and a break from the heat of picture taking on the beach. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and some are even planning their own trips back.

            My photographers posted some pics on their blog: (scroll down to their 7/13 entry)

            Good Luck w/ planning and feel free to ask any questions.
            Best Wishes!

              We opted to have the vanilla flavor thinking it would please the most palettes and it turned out not to be just any boring vanilla/yellow cake it was actually a Tres Leches cake. That was a great suprise and as small as our group was there was hardly any left! If I could do it over again, I would go w/ the vanilla...although I have read reviews that said the cheesecake was great too :)

                    Thank you mxbride789. I would like to see if I could get all three on different layers. My wedding group just keeps growing. I just had 8 people RSVP yes that I was not expecting to come. There are over 50 of us now. The more the merrier.
