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 is a reduced Southern version of Disney World. The shows were entertaining. We are retired so a lot of the rides didn't appeal to us. The food was way over priced.

Tip: Bring lots of money - Go to the park after 3pm and stay for the fireworks then go back the next day for free! Also park your car free at the Patriot Park and take the Trolley for $0.50

"Boring and disappointing...will never go back"
August, 2016
With exception of the few water rides and two roller coasters, there are better and more rides at the state fair. Dollywood is okay for little kids and the elderly. My family did not enjoy Dollywood at all. Way over priced disappointment. Should have gone to the fair.

It was very cold. Many rides were closed, but the ones that were open did not disappoint. The holiday lights were very good. It was a fun time for a herd of teen cousins and their parents. Saw an outdoor play, drank hot chocolate, ate snacks, and ran around. Very crowded despite the cold weather. Would like to go again when the weather would be less bone chilling and more things would be open.

"A great place to visit"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 19, 2018 NEW
My family went to Dollywood and we had a GREAT time. Coming from Florida we have visited many parks and Dolly wood is one of my favorite. I love the country scene and we were there during December and the lights were incredible. I noticed that they are adding on to the park and that should be great. The only issue we had was quite a long wait for transportation to get to our or car.

We took our four grandchildren the week before Christmas. The lights and music are wonderful. If you favor roller coasters, you will really like Dollywood. They have a section of rides for small children but many of the rides had a height requirement of 48 inches or so. The park is a little hilly and spread out so wear comfortable shoes. We purchased season passes and plan to return in the spring. Overall we had a great time and made some wonderful memories.

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.

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.
