I recently took my family to Great Wolf Lodge “Kids Take Over the Kitchen” day.  I met Chef Hani who told us about all of the wonderful foods the lodge has to offer, especially for kids with food sensitivities or allergies.  Chef featured seasonal fall inspired veggies, pasta, and some gluten free chicken fingers (just to name a few!)  They can accommodate anyone which makes this place even more amazing (if that is even possible!)  Chef told us that we can even have our moms and dads call ahead to make special requests regarding food allergies before our stay.

Look at this fresh and amazing food.

Fall flavors every where at the lodge!


Then we took to the kitchen to take over!  There was a special surprise guest!  It was Parker Bates from “This is Us”  turns out he loves cooking and he led our group of kids alongside Chef, in the kitchen.  His mom told my mom that in his show, they even wrote a special scene for him because he loves cooking so much!  How cool is that!

Great Wolf Lodge is not just something for summer vacation, it’s  year round family fun, especially during the holidays!  During Halloween there are special nights for trick or treating around the lodge.  Christmas time brings an amazing life size gingerbread house, fun character appearances and even a special visit from Santa!  I love taking trips with my family for the holidays and this will definitely be on my list!
