The kids always have a great time at GWL, and we have been several times now. Just a couple of things....
Park attractions close down too early. Check in STARTS at 4:00, and the water park closes at 9:00. We spent 1.5 hours of that in the SLOW moving restaurant for dinner. Generally seemed slow at things -dinner, turning the rooms around, etc. Nice that you can use the park at 1:00 day of check in and on day of checkout, but their locker room facilities are lacking - cramped, etc....and they charge $20 ($10 refundable) for lockers you'll have to use. The "2 days for price of one" should have an asterisk. Sheets on beds are weird. No fitted sheets....just odd flat sheet that comes off of the mattress pad. For $500 for the big room, doesn't feel like a great bargain considering we only got the room for 19 hours. Lastly - make sure your kid has lifejacket AND adult supervision in the wave pool. I personally saw kids getting overwhelmed when they turned on their crazy waves. The lifeguards there are diligent, but that wave pool is just plain dangerous...I'm surprised they don't have more accidents....I can guarantee there are close calls, though....
