My family (wife, 2 year old daughter, 2 month old son) and my brother-in-law, stayed in a 2 bedroom condo unit and this was our first trip to a waterpark resort in the Dells. Our room, after taxes was around $415/night for a Friday and Saturday night stay.
I want to say this about the size of the resort. People complain over and over and over about how big and spread out the resort is. Here is my take: yes, it is a very big spread out resort, BUT, if you have ever put in serious time at a Disney theme park, IT IS NO BIG DEAL. I could see, if you were at the very far right end of Glacier Canyon Lodge and you had to walk to the Wild West Waterpark, that might take 10-15 minutes, but whoopdie doo, my toddler never had a problem and my infant son was in a stroller. We walked around with no problem at all. The plus side of this is you have so many different waterparks to try out. Have fun!!

-Convenience store in GCL is not in middle of resort, at the far end.
-Lobby far away from most rooms.

-Nobody checking at waterparks if you are a resort guest or not. There is nothing stopping anyone staying at a much cheaper resort from just driving right on property and enjoying any of the waterparks. The first day we were there we forgot to put on our wristbands and nobody said a thing to us.
