    Great niece and nephews love it but it's very expensive. My hubby and I bring our niece and her 3 kids and with room, food and etc...it's almost $1,000 a day for a family of 6. Disney is cheaper

    Fun, but unnecessarily expensive. The upcharge of around $150+ after Xmas is shady. They should offer free access to MagiQuest. Great decor and safety awareness. Tornado is where you want to be.

    The beds are very lumpy. The noise in the hallways doesn't get quiet until 11pm and can start at 7am the next morning. Water park is awesome!

    Place is awesome for the kids and has very good service... I will say it's made to play here and not for comfort because the beds are not very comfortable..

    Yes this place can get expensive but it's no different than any other family fun tourist get away attraction. The food at the restaurant is not the best but it's not the worst either. Will be back!

    Make sure to apply the military discount. This is a very expensive 2 night stay for our family of 7... But worth it since the kids having so much fun... #Mommy2Five

    Get the all inclusive meals - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Everyone gets enough to eat and you don't spend all your money on the little snacks that are offered around the park.

    Kids 48 inches & up can ride all slides w/o parents. 42-48 inches can not ride the Howling Tornado and must have parental accompaniment on 2 others. They are good for the rest of the waterpark!

    This resort hotel near Charlotte boasts an 84,000-square-foot water park, a lodge-wide interactive game called MagiQuest, and an arcade. And did we say it's a hotel, too?

    The line for the slides is a lot shorter at night. plan accordingly. you will get to slide a lot more.

    Note: Unlike MagiQuest at Myrtle Beach or Pigeon Forge, when you sign up for MagiQuest at GWL, you get 4 days of play (not just 60 or 90 minutes)! Be sure to register at the start of your stay and s

    Check in begins at 1pm but you can't get into your room until 4pm! You can begin using the water park at 1 though.

    Guests have access to their expansive waterpark but the fun doesn't end there. Try MagiQuest, the Northern Lights Arcade and the Howl in One Mini-Golf.

    Make sure you have plenty of room on the credit card as they set aside money each night on reserve to cover incidentals

    Kids eat free till 29 March 2012. The catch is 1 kid per parent eats free at moose cottage for breakfast and dinner not lunch. Still saves a ton of money.

    The Tornado ride is not to be taken lightly, the drop off is crazy. It is definitely top five rides foe me ever.

    Working here, The waterpark is always at 84-86 degrees. The reason why it feels cold during winter months is because there is no humidity.

    Nice place, but you have to get the biggest room to get 2 bathrooms. At about 380.00 a night! :/

    It's not 84 degrees inside, more like 77. Bathrooms are freezing! Bring your own beach towels, the pool towels provided are small, thin and scratchy,

    The beds are so uncomfortable. This is our third stay here & the 3rd time waking up unrested with back pain. For this price, beds should be much better. Almost $800 for one night for our family of 6!

    Stop by Dunkin Donuts at night to avoid long lines in the morning.

    Lots of things to do but ridiculously expensive. .99 for a slice of tomato! Each game in the arcade is the equivalent of 2$ We enjoyed ourselves but won't be back. We can do more for less at Disney

    Rooms are pricey. Food, drinks, snacks, are VERY expensive. Beach towels in the indoor water park are very small, and uncomfortable. Beds are very uncomfortable and the pillows are horrible. Meh.

    Couldn't check into room until 4p, then the maid is banging on the door at 930; required check-out by 11a. Other than that a good experience.

    Not a very clean hotel for a AAA Diamond rated location. Cockroach scurried away from dirty dusty wall edge...maybe the housekeeping vacuums could not clean flush to the wall?
