When I think of Great Wolf Lodge, I think of water park and family fun all rolled into one. With a myriad of themed, premium and standard suites to choose from, it is definitely a great option for a local getaway with the kids. You don't even have to pack much since they have pretty much all you could need right at the resort, including a variety of dining options. Plus, if you book reservations before March 5, 2015, you can take advantage of this special promo code to save 20% off the best available, exclusive to Toronto Teacher Mom readers!
While staying at Great Wolf Lodge, our family often chooses to enjoy buffet breakfast and dinner at Camp Critter Bar & Grill. This rustic retreat is filled with cozy dining tents and cute critters hanging out in the trees above. And did you know you could enchant these critters with a MagiQuest wand? Such fun!
At the Antler Shanty, you can order omelettes at the egg station or help yourself to waffles, cereal, fruit and more at the breakfast buffet. For dinner, you can enjoy a slice of roast beef at the carving station or create your own Caesar salad at the salad bar. You will also find a variety of entrée specials and kids’ favourites. While I was surprised to see they had removed the kiddie station, I was happy to see they offered some kid-friendly options. Also, I appreciate that they serve the kids' drinks in a spill-proof cup. My kids are a little accident-prone.
Seating is ample at Camp Critter but our recent stay fell on Valentine's/Family Day weekend so I wasn't surprised to see lineups during breakfast and dinner. It opens as early as 7:30 in the morning so I suggest grabbing an early breakfast to avoid the lineup on busy weekends.
