I thought the same as well but found out when I got there that the MC and DJ are 2 different people so you pay $300 for them to get in.

Also, has anyone had there reception location confirmed by the resort yet?? I asked Mercy to have my reception by the quiet and she says that it was noted and that it would be confirmed closer to my wedding date?!? :S I don't really know what that means, but I hope someone else getting married the same day as me doesn't end up getting this location before I can confirm!
I actually opted for the resort DJ and MC, I did this because we extended the reception for an extra hour and like you we just couldn't add on the extra vendor fee on top of the extra fee we had to pay for the extented hour. We had a playlist that's COMPLETELY spelled out for them that there really was no way they could mess it up! We had the time frames listed and the order of how we wanted to be introduced and the song to play for every item. So that would help out a lot. Over all they were good, the MC even made some pretty good suggestions and we had a great time.
For the location, they do verify everything once you get there, I was given the same "noted" thing from Mercy but I emailed her immediately and told her that if she cannot confirm for me the reception location there would be a problem because one of the main reasons I booked my wedding there was because I fell in love with the Castaways restaurant. So maybe try to get her to confirm it before you arrive that way when you get there you can have a print out of her confirming your location and she can follow through with it
