We had the pleasure of returning to Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, Washington. This time, we experienced their Snowland during the holiday season. What a perfect way to experience the magic of the season. There is even a once in a lifetime experience you can have while there. How about the chance to dine inside a real gingerbread house?
Want to Dine Inside a REAL Gingerbread House – Here’s How
Dining inside a real gingerbread house has to be one of the most magical memories your family can make during the holiday season. Great Wolf Lodge offers this memorable experience.
To dine at a real gingerbread house you simply will need to make reservations online or at the front desk. The dining seats up to 6 persons and is completely private for your party. The perfect setup to sit down as a family and actually enjoy one another.
You will receive a text message to accept your reservation prior to dining. You will also receive a second text message just prior to your reservation time to confirm. Keep your phone handy to ensure that you don’t miss your spot.
Choosing What to Eat
Once our reservation time arrived, we checked in at the Lodge Wood Fire Grill at Great Wolf Lodge, Grand Mound. We met our wonderful waitress, Heather, at the gingerbread house who let us select what dining we wanted to choose from.
Our choices were:
- The Loose Moose Cottage buffet
- Lodge Wood Fired Grill restaurant
Both locations are grubbing. I personally love the Lodge Wood Fired Grill because they have some of the best burgers I have ever tasted. The Loose Moose Cottage buffet is great for kids, though. Either way, you really cannot go wrong with these two locations at Great Wolf Lodge.
So if you’re wondering about what the Snowland gingerbread house menu is at your location, be aware that you most likely will be able to choose from the dining locations at the lodge. Normally the buffet or restaurant dining. A good selection, in my opinion.
After choosing to dine from the Lodge Wood Fire Grill, we were given menus and time to select our meals. We honestly never felt rushed either.
What It Is Like Inside the Great Wolf Lodge Gingerbread House
We enjoyed the scent of gingerbread and candy while inside. There even was a small fireplace to cozy up to. We just had to keep our daughter from licking the walls. It was tempting not to take a bite.
Great Wolf Lodge pays close attention to the detail they put into their holiday decor and it shows. I love that each location that participates in the gingerbread house each design their own. It gives it a special touch.
I love that they had a small tree inside and a bucket filled with a candy bouquet. We were even offered to snag a couple of chocolate bars from the bouquet.
The experience was relaxing and quaint. A perfect time to enjoy time as a family. It was even kind of fun watching the “ooh’s and ahh’s” as people walked by.
What Does it Cost to Dine Inside the Great Wolf Lodge Gingerbread House?
The extra cost to dine was only $10 (donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities®) plus the cost of food. Certainly worth it. The donation goes to a great cause and the experience is priceless. Prices are always subject to change.
I highly recommend that if you’re at Great Wolf Lodge, Grand Mound, or another location with this experience, that you take part. It gets you in the Christmas spirit and is a cherished family memory. Who else can say they had a chance to dine inside a REAL gingerbread house?!
What is Snowland at Great Wolf Lodge?
Snowland is a great experience during the holidays at Great Wolf Lodge. Selected rooms are transformed into a winter wonderland, holiday-themed activities are held around the lodge, and of course, this opportunity to eat inside of a real gingerbread house.
It is one of the best times to head to Great Wolf Lodge to experience an indoor snowfall with family too. Memories you’ll never forget.
Plus, who doesn’t love the idea of getting to play in an indoor-waterpark during the cold season outdoors? Sounds perfect to me!
