I don’t see anything wrong with walking 5-7 minutes, BUT I still like the first idea better.  It’s so much more convenient for your guests to just continue the reception, and you won’t waste time in transit.  To solve the adults-only issue, well… I really doubt parents are going to keep their kids at a wedding until 11pm, so it’s probably fine, otherwise have your parents spread by word of mouth that the reception itself ends at 10 but that you and your friends will continue the party in an adults-only manner for another hour… only to those people that you think should be informed.  If you’re still ready to party after 11pm, could you move to someone’s suite for something a bit more casual?  That wouldn’t break the bank!

I like the idea of staying late at the reception location, but if you are doing a send-off at the end of the night you’d either 1)have to do it with everyone and then turn right back around and go back inside or 2)do one with only the people at the after party or 3)not have one at all.  Something to consider when you make your decision.

I think this will work out just fine.  I’ve taken much longer walks, while intoxicated, and never even realized we were on a trek!  For your wedding, your friends and fun family will have no problem doing this, they’re all just gonna be having a blast with you.  Don’t even sweat it.  As far as getting the less fun people to go, I think you’ll just have to have the DJ announce what the hour will entail and hope they leave on their own accord.  I’m sure they will.  I also love the idea of having whoever can make it, at the pool.  Its really nice of you to pay for the Panera.  That is way more than enough, don’t feel like you have to do too much!

I think it’s fine to have a five minute walk.  If someone’s feet are hurting they can call themselves a cab.  As a guest I would never assume that all my transportation around the city would be taken care of by the bride and groom.

I love your plans, I think you should definitely go for it and don’t worry about the 5-7 min walk! Not a big deal at all!
