This past June we stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, NC while I attended the Reviewer's Retreat Conference. The kids were very excited about our stay and from the time we drove up everyone was so friendly and welcoming. It was like we were in a totally different world. With both kids having food allergies, traveling is always hard. But the lodge helped ease the worries of a food allergy mom. Both kids got special "I have food allergy" bracelets to alert staff of their allergies and the chefs and servers were very knowledgeable and attentive.
My oldest loved that he could explore the lodge on his own and not have to have his little sister tag along everywhere. His favorite was the MagiQuest game, and he played it as much as he could.
My youngest had a blast at the waterpark. But the best moment for us was when she met Violet for the first time. It was just one of those moments in life that you will remember forever. It was also a big accomplishment for a shy little 3 yr old.
Thank you Great Wolf for making our trip worry free and fun. We'll be back, the kids are already trying to convince us to go back to the lodge instead of going to Disney for vacation in February.
