We spent a week at Wilderness Resort in June of 2012. We were nothing but pleased with the experience. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom condos in Glacier Canyon Lodge and the condo was very nice, clean and spacious. Our children range in age from 4 to 18 and there is ample entertainment options to keep all of them busy for the week (as a side note, while entrance to the water parks in included, all of the extra stuff is not, so bring extra money if you want to do other stuff, and consider their "adventure passes", as they are a good deal). The staff was friendly, nice and helpful, especially the shuttle drivers. The resort is quite large, but the signage/maps were useful and the staff were equally as helpful in directing us where to go when we got lost. All of the water parks (both indoor and outdoor), including the rides, were updated, clean and incredibly enjoyable. We didn't have to wait in long lines (for the most part) for the rides and most of the ones we went on were quite fun. The kids areas are excellent and the lazy rivers are very well done. The water parks are designed in a way that it is easy for parents to relax while the kids have fun. The indoor wave pool and water dome was really nice in that regard, with a beach-like atmosphere. There are ample places to get a snack and/or drink (for both kids and adults). The food and drinks on premise are expensive, but that goes with the territory (thankfully our condo had a full kitchen, so we ate most of our meals in our room). The only word of warning I have is that you have to keep a close eye on either your towels or towel cards. We did have one occasion where someone walked off with our towels while we were in the wave pool and it was a bit of a pain to get replacements. I would highly recommend Wilderness Resort, as our family had a great time. So much so that we are already planning a return trip this summer. The only negative I can think of is this. The resort is owned by Wyndham and they have a program called "Wyndham Vacation Ownership" (similar to time-share, but without being tied to a particular property). When you check in, they do put a bit of pressure on you to attend their sales presentation, though it is not required as a part of your stay. If you are considering buying into the program (it's not a bad program), then go ahead with it, but if that isn't something that interests you, turn it down, regardless of the perks they offer. We attended the presentation because they offered us $150 in Amex gift cards (and who can't use extra money while on vacation?). I was interested in the program but wasn't prepared to commit that day (that is just how I am, I need to think things over before I commit). I told the sales rep that before we started, but when it came time to close the deal, they weren't all to happy that I'd stuck to my guns on that and applied quite a bit of pressure to try to close the deal. My best recommendation on that front is that if you are interested in their program, do your research before you go and head into the presentation knowing what you want, or being ready to commit. Otherwise, just skip it all together and enjoy your time at the resort. You won't be disappointed!
