Dollywood is a Pigeon Forge vacation must! The park offers plenty to do for all ages. Plan on lots of walking. Make sure to get a park map and show schedule when you arrive. When you're thirsty, ask for a cup of water at any food stand. It's free!

Even if rain is in the forecast, go to Dollywood. You’ll experience shorter wait times, fewer crowds, and more chances to ride your favorite coaster or ride over and over again. We walked right onto Tennessee Tornado, Wild Eagle, and Mystery Mine!

    "Anniversary getaway"
    October, 2018 NEW
    This was a spur of the moment decision to make the trip to Dollywood. With only 2 days to try and pack a restful and enjoyable time for two we where not disappointed. The shows very top of the line, the rides a little scary for me, and the museum of Dolly Parton was my favorite. Food was a little pricey but being able to ask for free water anytime was an added benefit. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, the best part was after dark when all the pumpkins where lit up. Thank you for such a good time

    "Great Family Fun"
    September, 2018 NEW
    We made a lot of great family memories at Dollywood. We rode the trolley in the Old Mill District instead of paying for parking. It is only .50 per person each way to ride the trolley, but it is $15 to park. We ate at Aunt Granny's while in the park. It was expensive, but the food was excellent and there were a lot of gluten free choices for my husband who has Celiac Disease. We watched the Dreamland Drive-In show and everyone thought it was great, including my 15 year old son. Overall, we had a great day at Dollywood!

    Tip: They don't advertise this, but you can get free water at any of the food stations in the park. This saves a ton of money on drinks!

    Had a great time at Dollywood and the water park as well. The wait in line time wasn't bad at all. Most of the staff were very helpful too

    Tip: Ordered and paid for two day two park tickets as part of our package. When we tried to go to the water park we had to purchase additional tickets, we had a great time but the extra ticket purchases were frustrating.

    It was a childhood dream of a large amusement park, with rides, shows, and food galore. They also had specialty stores and food for carrying around and sitting down. It is not for faint of heart or weary but many places to sit and people watch if the excitement is more than you can stand. Lots of people in a very large site. Growing everyday! Without young children to entice another visit, I would say that it is a one full day and done.

    We have been to Dollywood during the summer and totally enjoyed it, but October is phenomenal. The fall decorations were beautiful during the day, but totally awesome at night. This is a fall must do trip.

    Yes, instead of carrying your purchases around, please take advantage of our convenient and complimentary Package Pickup service. Any items purchased in our merchandise shops will be delivered to the Dollywood Emporium for you to pick up as you exit the park at the end of your day. Let the merchandise host know that you’d like to use Package Pickup. You’ll receive a card indicating the time your item(s) will be ready.

Although we do not allow food or drink to be brought into the Park, Dollywood offers a wide variety of delicious foods available at our restaurants and snack vendors. (Special dietary needs should be addressed with the Foods Office prior to arrival at 865-428-9428.) However, if you would like to eat elsewhere or must leave for any reason during the day, remember to get your hand stamped and keep your admission ticket, then you can return later that same day. Dollywood does not have picnic areas at the park, but if you would like to picnic somewhere, the Smoky Mountains National Park is a great place to visit.

    Yes. You will need to have your hand stamped at the exit at the Dollywood Emporium. Keep your ticket so it can be scanned when you return.

Rain checks are distributed at the Season Pass Center and are valid until the end of the season. You must request the rain check on the day of your visit before leaving the park.
