    Hi all!  Love reading all the stories and planning!  We are getting married in May of next year and are leaning heavily towards EDR.  The 2 things I keep reading in the reviews that worry me are ridiculously long lines at the restaurants and the rocky beachs/sandbags.  Anyone that has already been have any insight into those?  I'd love to hear if either were a problem or not. Congrats to everyone!!!

            Not sure if it is luck or what but I have not waited for lunch or dinner yet! As far as the sand bags, yes they are there but they don't bother me! I would recommend this place to anyone! More details when I get back but me and all my guests love it!!!!

                I just got married the 11th and got back Friday (sad). I didn't have problems with either of those. It seemed like the restaurant wait times for dinner were more around 7:30 and 8, and that wasn't an issue for us because we usually eat closer to 6:30 or 7. The beach/bags didn't bother us at all either, however we weren't looking to swim in the ocean. We relaxed on the beach, and then if we wanted to swim went in the pools. If those are your only two reservations, I wouldn't let it deter you. If I can help at all feel free to messag me! All the details are fresh in my mind :) Wish we were still there.....

                I agree with Lindsey. The restaurants did get busy around 7:30 or 8pm. If you're in a Casita, you can make reservations for the restaurants every night and then it's definitely not an issue. We tended to eat earlier, and were usually among the first people in the restaurants around 6 or 6:30.

                 

                The beach is rocky in a lot of areas. There's some areas that you can get into and swim (in and around the sandbags) on the Royale side of the resort, nearest to JoJo's restaurant and the main pool area. They do have the big sandbags (which they call artificial reefs..) that help prevent erosion, and also serves as breakers for windy days. I had heard that these actually make snorkeling around them nice because they do attract the fish.
