I am having the exact same issue as you with the dates. We are keeping our fingers crossed for Jan 5th, 2012, but Rocio says we can't book til May. Did she tell you a date in May that you can call and book? When I spoke to her about a month ago she said that not a lot of people had been calling and requesting dates for Jan next year, so hopefully we will both get the dates we want.
I know that if you have 40+ people you need to have a private reception. Not sure about some of your other questions since I am a newbie too!
Good luck with your planning and I am sure we will have lots to talk about as our dates get closer

I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium Kantenah resort in January 2012. I've also requested a date but was told that I had to wait until May! I'm a bit nervous about it because I really want the 25th, since we'll be there from the 20th-27th. We have 40 guests!
I have a few Q's! (I know it's a bit early but I'm super excited!)
- What are you ladies doing for the "dance floor"? If you bring your own music, you can hook it up and have a dance floor in the private reception? I really, really want dancing! Is anyone getting a DJ?
- With the private reception, do you only have to pay additional menu costs? Or is there another fee? And what are the private reception options? And what are the time limits on a private reception?
- What are you doing for a photographer? Is there a policy on bringing one in?
... I think that's it for now. I really like the idea of having the cocktail time! =) Where are you getting the information? I have the menu list and the package list - is there anything else out there?
