Turkey Day in the Dells

November 05, 2019

Holidays are nearly a season unto themselves in Wisconsin Dells. Take Thanksgiving, when the chefs at the major waterpark resorts assume all the cooking duties and guests have so much more to do than just watch football or snooze afterwards!

Turkey Day in the Dells

Feast, Fun, Family

When you are able to leave all the planning, all the preparation and all the clean-up associated with Thanksgiving to someone else, what are you left with? Fun. Conversation. Relaxation. In other words, quality time. The waterpark resorts in Wisconsin Dells offer tantalizing Thanksgiving buffets that let you direct your undivided attention to friends and family…and isn’t that as it should be?!


At Chula Vista Resort, the bountiful buffet on Nov. 28 with nearly 30 different delectable items may be the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving celebration, but the family activities and kids’ crafts come in a close second. Play in the indoor waterpark, indulge in a spa treatment and marvel at the scenic beauty (the resort is perched above the Wisconsin River).


Thanksgiving favorites fill the buffet at Kalahari Resort on Nov. 28. Think turkey, prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and candied yams. The dessert station features the Kalahari Chocolate Fountain Extravaganza. There’s a waterpark here too, and a spa, and an indoor theme park. In other words, lots to keep the family smiling.


Head to the Glacier Canyon Conference Center at the Wilderness Resort on Thanksgiving Day for a mouthwatering array of entrees, sides and desserts. The Kids’ Corner is sure to be a hit with the little ones. Afterwards, play in the waterpark or zip around the indoor amusement park where go-carts, climbing walls, mini golf and a ropes course are all fine ways to wear off the calories.


Still wishing for that classic, cozy, family all-under-one-roof feeling minus the stress of cleaning and preparing your house for guests? There are plenty of cabins and cottages to rent that fit the whole family in Wisconsin Dells. To make things even better yet? Maurer’s Market in downtown Wisconsin Dells will fully prepare a turkey and Thanksgiving meal to go. All you have to do is submit your order in advance and pick it up on Thanksgiving morning!
