Every year, each Great Wolf Lodge resort transforms into a winter wonderland during our Snowland celebration. The lobby is adorned with giant snowflakes hanging from the rafters, twinkling lights, and holiday décor. However, the true centerpiece of it all is our life-size gingerbread house.

Our gingerbread houses aren’t ordinary gingerbread houses by any means. Made with over 550 pounds of gingerbread, these 20-foot tall houses are absolutely awe-inspiring. It takes each resort about one month to design, bake, and construct these one-of-a-kind edible cottages. The best part? Families can dine inside for breakfast, lunch, or dinner for a small fee, because (let’s be honest), it would be a shame for these houses to sit empty during Snowland. The proceeds from dining in the gingerbread houses are donated to each resort’s local Ronald McDonald House.

New this year, we’ve made it even easier to book your family’s meal inside the gingerbread house. With our new online reservation system, you can book breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the gingerbread house before you even step foot in the resort. To book your reservation, visit greatwolf.com/snowland and select your resort from the property list. This will re-direct you to your resort’s Snowland page and on the right sidebar, simply click on “Now taking reservations online!” underneath the gingerbread house. You can then select your date and time preference, as well as the total number in your party, and pick from the available times. And, just like that, your family is on its way to enjoying a delicious meal within the candy-adorned walls of a life-size gingerbread house while supporting a great cause.
