Great Wolf Lodge Orlando was announced in a blaze of publicity back in January 2016.

The resort was to be built adjacent to the Sheraton Vistana Resort Villas, just north of Marriott Sabal Palms and Marriott World Center.

The massive resort would have included 800 suites and a 100,000 sq foot indoor and outdoor waterpark, Great Wolf's first Florida location, so what happened?

Ground was due to break on the project in 2019, but somewhere along the way, Great Wolf Resorts cnceledd the entire project, and insteadsold the land in August 2018.

Now Great Wolf Resorts are coming to Florida again, sadly not Orlando, but South Florida families can look forward to a new, fun, adventure-filled getaway in 2024, as Great Wolf Resorts, announced it was coming to Naples.

Great Wolf Lodge South Florida will become the brand’s 21st resort in North America, featuring 500 family-friendly suites and an expansive 100,000-square-foot indoor water park.

The resort will sit on 20 acres on the eastern edge of Collier County, near the I-75 and Collier Blvd interchange and next to the Paradise Coast Sports Complex, making for a convenient, fun-filled getaway for families across South Florida and a significant economic engine for the region.

With a rough construction timeline of 18-24 months, Great Wolf Lodge South Florida is expected to celebrate its grand opening in spring/summer of 2024.
