We enjoy GWL at least 4x a year. The granddaughters love it! It is a birthday must. They have gone through a lot of changes recently. I liked the old staff and old buffet better but all things "evolve". The staff knows us by name and we feel so welcome when we are there. We are VIP gold band guests. This definitely adds to the experience. The holidays are magical with the "snow" and decorations. If you haven't' experienced GWL; you don't know what you are missing. The themed rooms are too cute. Love the balconies just wish they would enforce the no smoking rule on them. The blow over really ruins the mood when enjoying the view on a balcony and some chimney comes out next door and runs you off with the stench. My biggest complaint is the smoking by the doors especially the front door. If you park in the parking lot; you have to walk through the smoke cloud to get in. That is poor planning on GWL part. They need to move that area and all smoking AWAY from the doors. My child should not have to endure the risk of cancer to enter a fun activity zone. If they would enforce or remove the smoking; 5 stars hands down! Sign up for their email and FB. You will receive coupons that really save on the stay. Looking forward to our next trip!
