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!

"Dollywood Experience"
August, 2018 NEW
Purchased tickets from Reserve Pigeon Forge. Easy and was able to get $10 off per ticket even though that special was not available on Dollywood had lots of rides for our young grandkids. Everyone had a good time including the adults. Dollywood app estimated wait times not accurate on some rides, plus not all rides have wait times available.

Tip: Dollywood app does not show wait times for all rides. We had to wait 30 minutes at Shooting Star and app does not have wait times for that ride. Check Reserve Pigeon Forge and for discounts.

"Super surprised!"
August, 2018 NEW
I thought it was only a place for kids, but I was mistaken. It has something for everyone. My husband and I walked through all the shops and enjoyed all the shows in the park while our kids and grandkids rode the rides. I was very surprised at the cleanliness of the park, it was super clean. We all had an amazing time !

We had a great time with our grandson. It was his first time to Dollywood. He enjoyed the rides, and won two items at the games (he was very pleased at that) Everyone was helpful and courteous. Wait time for rides was very short. There was so much to see. We had a great time.

"Family vacation 2018"
July, 2018 NEW
For being summertime, the park wasn't that bad for wait times. Very clean park and great atmosphere. They do fireworks every night, which is pretty cool. Only 2.25 miles off of the main strip. Beautiful countryside to look at. They are starting an expansion for 2019. We bought 3 day park hopper passes. Loved the main park so much, we didn't even make it into the waterpark.

Tip: Almost every place will give you free glasses of ice water. Which is nice if you don't want pop all the time.

"Not worth the trip"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed August 19, 2018 NEW
We visited specifically to attend music events as we, as seniors, were not interested in amusements. Most were canceled. In a music city, you would believe that back-ups of some kind would be arranged. Not for this park. You would also believe that understanding that the odds for seniors attending for programs and knowing that coverage was not available, admission prices would be reduced. Again, not for this park. We did try to utilize the train ride. Never made it. Lines were too long each time we tried . With the heat, we were unable to physically stand in line the allotted time required I must commend that it was very clean and employees were extremely polite and helpful. However, we will not return nor recommend.

Dollywood is a rare attraction in this day and age. It has some very exciting roller coasters as well as other rides,but also plenty of shops,singers,and entertainment for the older of the group. Dollywood is also the most family friendly park I have ever been to. At other parks it is customary to see fights,loud arguments,and obscene language but not here.

Reviewed August 19, 2018 NEW
Have been here for over 3 hours and have only rode 2 ride. Not because of the crowds either, it’s a cloudy Sunday morning there are not that many here. Waited next in-line for staff to clean up throw up for 1.5 hours. 2 other larger coasters are closed down. For the past 3 years we have been unable to ride “lightening rod” due to maintenance. For the $350 it cost to get in here, not worth it. Take your kids and do something they’ll enjoy. Dolly isn’t getting anymore of our money. I know she runs a big outfit and they aren’t concerned with a blue collar working family. We’re just sad to not get to enjoy our time especially for the money that was paid. Went to the DIXIE Stampeed Friday and was unimpressed there to. We visit multiple Dolly attractions every year and they are going down hill.

We were very impressed with the park. It was incredibly clean and all of the staff we interacted with were very friendly! The park had a good variety of rides and lots of things for our 2 year old to play on or ride. The park was nice and shady too which we appreciated in the August heat. The highlight for us was the train. Our toddler loved it! Can’t wait to go back.

"Fun yet disappointing "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 18, 2018 NEW
We drove 800 miles one way for a 2 day trip to Dollywood only to find out when we got there that they were short staffed with workers going back to school and that they were only going to be open every other day. So that spoiled things for our family a bit when we found that our trip was cut short by a day. Beyond that, we were disappointed when many of the rides we wanted to go on were down. Otherwise, we had a good time for the post part. This is our second time visiting Dollywood but I’m not sure if we will return after having travelled so far only to run into those issues.

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.

Without a reservation, all kennels at Doggywood will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. *Please note: Doggywood can only accommodate dogs.
