If you upgrade it, they will apply a $200 credit. I'm not sure the cake itself would actually cost $200 from a Disney bakery—I've seen people on the Cake Thread quoted less...

If you stick with Memories and don't need a 2-tier cake (which feeds 30-50 people), it would be cheaper to pay $100 for a fancy fondant 1-tier cake from the GF, Contemporary, et al.

the deposit is 500.00 and you will need your reservation confirmation number when you sign the contract

Hi. We are planning our Vr renewal for Dec 16 or 17 of 2011. We hope to get Conch Cay at the GF for 3pm with a reception at the Garden View Lounge at 4:15pm for tea. Dh and I have been married 10years and we have three kids; dd 6 and ds and dd 1. We've been through a lot it 10 years. DH suffered horrible migraines and nearly died of irregular heart rhythms. Heart has since been repaired and now headaches are cured since heart surgery. Before our twins, we suffered four miscarriages. So we just figure it would be great to celebrate our life together. We've gotten through a lot and are still going strong. Our life feels like a miracle.

I'm going with an Up theme. The children will carry balloons and I'm going to have an Up cake made. I want it to say "Adventure is out there!" Celebrating a life together. I thought maybe having the mailbox scene on it (the one where Carl and Ellie have their hand prints on the mailbox). I haven't picked flowers or anything yet because we can't book until June 15 so I don't have a package to look at. Great to hear everyone's ideas.

Here are some of my details. Since we've decided on this I'm sooo into the planning. We will have it at GF Conch Cay at 3pm as I've said with tea following. I've decided on an Up theme. The children will carry balloons. I'm going to have dh and ds wear the grape soda pins a boutenneirs (spelling?). You can buy them on Etsy.com. I'm also looking into having an up cake topper made by and Etsy artist. It would be of the scene where Carl and Ellie are at the mailbox. I would then add it to a cake that the GF makes. I'm thinking the cake could be sky blue with balloo'ns and clouds on the sides. I want it to day Adventure is out There and on the plate have written "Celebrating a life together." Would Disney let me add my own topper? More to come. The baby's crying.

I did not know that a 2-tier cake will feed up to 50 people! Or maybe I just wasn't thinking...probably the latter one. Wow - we're going to have a LOT of cake left over!

Congrats to all you doing VRs (and getting married)! DH & I are planning our VR (April 13, 2011) but we're having an Escape "rewedding". If I had known about the Memories package we would have waited and took that pkg! Oh well!

Quandrea - I LOVE your idea for the cake!

Lizbd23 - your dress sounds gorgeous!

I'm in the process of planning a memories wedding too for October 2011 - I am so excited. We've been together for over 15 years - plan to wed 2 days prior to our 16th anniversary of meeting.

Well, I admit that's if you cut smaller pieces, but since Disney never includes the top layer of the cake in their guest counts, you always have way more cake than you expect if you don't save it for the anniversary.

Well since we are renewing our vows for our anniversary - and don't want to "save" the cake for another year (heck we didn't even save our original top of the cake from our wedding!) then big pieces of cake for everyone!

Thanks for the info lurkyloo!

I am still wondering if anyone has pics of the Bright and Bold bouquet yet? Someone told me it looks very similar to the tropical bouquet from the escape collection, but I am wondering what the difference is.
