    That probably was us! We had a bunch a guests hanging out with us at the casita pool. Hope we weren't too loud or rowdy! We had such a good time! How was your honeymoon?

There is also another gazebo... its closest to the presidential suites which I almost choose (I had never heard mention of it before). There is a lot of greenery around it but there is a rock wall behind. Its very beautiful though.
      Thanks. I'm sure we'll be able to work something out. My major concern though is that I've had my dress hemmed to wear 3 inch heels and I'm not sure how I'll pull that off in the sand. We actually stayed by Gazebo 55 when we did our site visit and it is pretty. I was just hoping for a walkway. In the end I know it's just a little thing so we'll fix it or I'll just have to get over it!

      You're photos were great though. THanks for sharing and writing the review!

            Thank-you so much for the review and pics! it was definitly helpful!!

            question for you: your ceremony site is the site I have picked. But I was wondering, were your guests able to see you, when you pulled up in the golf cart? or is there a place where the golf cart can drop you, out of sight, before walking down the aisle?

            Thanks! and congratulations again :)

              Gorgeous pics! Congratulations to you both, we also got married at the EDR and agree that while you have to be a little flexible it is a great location! So glad the rain stopped in time though! I would have been a mess if it had done that to me!! LOL!

                Yes, the guests were able to see me when I pulled up. It was a little weird, but you are far enough away that they can't see you too closely. I don't really think there is a way around it. Maybe they could pull you around behind the set of rooms that is right there, but I don't think you'd be able to hear the music and then you wouldn't know when to go. When you get there, you can check out the site and talk to the WC about that.

                  THANK YOU..THANK YOU..THANK YOU!
                  Your review & pics have me so excited right now. I'm getting married @ EDR in July, and I was wondering, I plan on having about 15-20 people. DO you think the Casita Gazebo would be appropriate? I know it's not private at all, and it actually looks alittle tight. But, I fell in love with it since the first time I saw it.

                    Hey guys!
                    So here is what Valeria told me about the casitas gazebo, so if you are wondering about numbers, looks like only 15 or fewer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! BUT the other locations look very nice as well, so don't sweat it too much. Hope this helps!

                    "Dear Holly,

                    El Dorado Royale was on the Path of Hurricane's Dean trajectory last August, Casitas Gazebo Beach extension was reduced to only hold 15 people, all of your wedding party won't fit anymore there, the only 2 options remaining are White Gazebo and Gazebo 55. Sorry about that "

                      I think you could fit 15 people there but I have to stress that it is VERY public. You would have people walking right by you on the sidewalk the whole time. There is another Gazebo that would fit a smaller group. It is located closest to the presidential suites. It has a lot of greenery around, but does have a rock wall in the back. I thought it was really pretty though. Maybe your WC could send you a picture?
