Property at a Glance: Great Wolf Lodge Scottsdale

The heart and soul of Great Wolf Lodge Scottsdale is its gigantic indoor water park. Splashy rides such as Alberta Falls—a four-story double-raft water slide—and a zero-depth-entry wave pool with 3-foot swells surround the park’s iconic hub: a four-story treehouse with a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket. Younger kids will have a blast with the water slides and gentle spray features of Whooping Hollow and Cub Paw Pool.

The water park, which hovers around 84 degrees all year long, isn’t the resort’s only family-friendly activity. You’ll also find an arcade with more than 100 games and mini bowling at Ten Paw Alley.

  • Extended water park access: You can enter the water park at 1 p.m. on the day you check in and stay until close on the day you check out (essentially 2 days’ water park admission).
  • Family-friendly fun: There are plenty of games and activities for kids of all ages. Explore all activities by age group here.
  • Hands-on crafts and activities such as face painting and balloon twisting during the Lunch Time Lineup can entertain young children when they want a break from the water park action.
  • Roomy suites comfortably sleep up to six people. The Wolf Den suite provides extra privacy with enclosed bunk beds.
  • Where to eat: There are nine restaurants and snack bars.
  • Add a Paw Pass or Pup Pass to your stay to enjoy kid-friendly activities and sweets at Creation Station, MagiQuest, and more at a discounted rate. See everything that’s included—as well as other available packages—here (additional fees apply).
  • Safety first: Complimentary life jackets in multiple sizes and trained lifeguards help keep families safe and secure.
  • Distance from Scottsdale: 6 miles

AWESOME Gift Idea…Save 30% off the PhoneSoap 3 UV Smartphone Sanitizer and Charger (As Seen on Shark Tank)! Perfect for the Person With Everything!


I am SO excited about this gift idea! Head over here to pick up a PhoneSoap 3 UV Smartphone sanitizer and charger for $42 while supplies last in select colors (usually $59.99-79.99). It comes in lots of different colors, gets GREAT reviews, and comes with a lifetime bulb warranty. Remember Amazon can raise the prices at ANYTIME!

Our phones are 18X dirtier than public toilets according to research…that is just disgusting.

  • “PHONESOAP 3: THE FIRST UV-C SANITIZER AND CHARGER. This unit houses two scientifically proven germicidal UV-C bulbs that completely sanitize your entire phone, killing 99.99% of all bacteria and germs. In addition, the unit offers one USB port and one USB-C port for charging.
  • AS SEEN ON SHARK TANK, DISCOVERY CHANNEL, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, AND QVC. PhoneSoap’s revolutionary bacteria-zapping technology was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, tested and proven effective on the Discovery Channel, and sold to hundreds of thousands of happy customers on Good Morning America and QVC.
  • STAY HEALTHY. Our phones gather all the bacteria we touch throughout the day, and then they are stored in warm and dark places like purses and pockets, leaving the bacteria to breed and grow. They are the third hand we never wash! Using PhoneSoap on a regular basis will help keep germs and illness at bay.
  • FITS AND CHARGES ANY PHONE. PhoneSoap 3 was built to accommodate all smartphones, including larger models like the iPhone 8+ and the Galaxy S10+. The USB and USB-C ports in the back of the unit offer universal charging to all devices. You’re going to charge your phone every night anyway – you may as well sanitize it, too!
  • CLEAN WHATEVER FITS. The PhoneSoap 3 was created with smartphones in mind, but will sanitize anything that fits inside – pacifiers, smart watches, headphones, keys – you name it!”

About Christmas at the Princess

Back for another spectacular holiday season, Christmas at the Princess invites one and all to its annual festival celebrating the magic of winter. This annual event provides multiple attractions and great opportunities to bond with family in an environment of holiday cheer. There’s plenty of icy fun to be had, like skating in the Desert Ice Skating Rink, or creating holiday stuffed animals at the Build-A-Bear Workshop. Lights are aglow throughout the land, especially aboard the Lagoon Lights and Princess Express Trains that travel from one end of the resort to the other. And, with the addition of an HD video show at the Enchanted Plaza Show, lights are a main attraction for holiday fun. Also, for a sweet treat to last the night, families can enjoy treats made at S’mores Land and roast marshmallows around the campfire in a Christmas Tree Forest. From a Christmas Carousel to Frosty’s Ferris Wheel, and even a special visit with Santa, Christmas at the Princess makes each Christmas season one to remember.”

Enjoy and let’s get this holiday season GOING!
