5 Secrets To Great Wolf Lodge – Booking
This Great Wolf Lodge booking secret is not to be missed: book through expedia.ca. I didn’t know about this myself until my most recent GWL trip. I simply signed up to be an expedia.ca member (it’s FREE) and searched Niagara Falls hotels – Great Wolf Lodge and there were GWL rooms and rates at a glance! I really liked how it told me how many rooms were left for room choices on the dates I planned on visiting. Bonus, I earned 1,966 Expedia+ points which I can use towards future travel bookings.
5 Secrets To Great Wolf Lodge – Rooms
We booked into a Kid’s Cabin room which sleeps up to 6 guests. It was spacious and very comfortable for our family of 5. For smaller families (i.e. family of 4 or 3) consider a family suite – it is the most economical choice.
5 Secrets To Great Wolf Lodge – Dining
Great Wolf Lodge offers a generous meal plan which turns your visit into an all-inclusive resort experience. Dinner at the buffet is vast and varied (example: mussels for grown ups – pizza for kids).
And the cafe has all sorts of treats and temptations for your family getaway (ice cream anyone?!). However, as I mentioned in my post More For Less Tips For Great Wolf Lodge – packing your own breakfast is an easy and economical way to keep costs down.
5 Secrets To Great Wolf Lodge – Activities
Take advantage of the lodge and all the activities included in your stay. You could spend all day at the water park. Take a break in the art room. Listen to story time. Stay up late for a dance party in the great hall. See the character meet n’ greet. Visit the arcade. Do a little bit of bowling. Hang out in the great hall and watch the animated animals.
5 Secrets To Great Wolf Lodge – Water Park
Ok so…for the water park…it opens at 9am so be sure to arrive by 9:30am to claim chairs and a table. After 10am – they are pretty much all taken (and you have no place to use as home base for your towels and shoes). Your GWL wristband is your room key (and adults can have wristbands activated at the front desk so you can “pay” with your band for meals, snacks, even treats in the gift shop). So basically, all you need to bring into the water park is your cover up, shoes, and the towel you get upon entry into the water park.
Though you must check out by 11am – you are welcome to enjoy the water park up until 9pm the evening of your check out. So check out at 9am (leaving one bag packed with your street clothes). Take valuables and extra bags to your vehicle. Take street clothes bag into the water park with you (you can rent a locker by the day). Enjoy the water park that much longer!
