Water park with suites or double rooms?

Hi I've never been to the Dells. Am planning a trip there this Fall with 2 preschoolers and 4 adults. Anyone have any recommendations for a water park that caters more to the little ones, and offers double rooms or suites to accommodate all if us?

more caters to the little ones is definitely Great Wolf. In summer (I like the outside there a lot) I'd vote for The Polynesian but since it'll be Fall I'd probably go with Great Wolf. You can check out the websites and decide which one suits your group better, for both the waterpark and the accommodation for all part.

Great Wolf Lodge is great for little ones. In additonal to the waterpark (which includes tiny slides just for young kids/toddlers), there's also a Magic Quest on property. The clock show in the lobby each evening is geared towards little kids.

We also really liked the Wilderness; the waterparks are big (bigger than Great Wolf). It has several arcades, laser tag, a haunted house. Probably better for older kids (6 and up), but I'm sure younger kids would enjoy it as well.

We had just basic rooms at both resorts, but I know Widerness has a variety of accomodations, including condos and houses you can rent. I'm not sure what Great Wolf all has.

The Glacier Canyon Lodge part of the Wilderness has condo-style rooms with up to 3 bedrooms so you will find one to accommodate all of you.

The Wilderness does have areas for little kids but the waterparks in general are big and very busy at peak times (like Thanksgiving) but it sounds like you have plenty of adults to keep an eye on the little ones. We always choose Glacier Canyon Lodge/Wilderness over the other parks primarily because of their family-friendly rooms but also because everything is connected via a skywalk - you never have to use the car or go outside, which is very convenient in the winter months. The skywalks can be long though so if you do stay here you may want to bring a stroller or wagon for the kids.

We recently stayed at Chula Vista, they offer some nice 2 bedroom condos.
