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!

    "Great park - even in the pouring rain!"
    November, 2018 NEW
    We enjoyed our visit thoroughly, despite the inclement weather. The food was not as good as I had read about online (I thought the chicken at the Dolly's Stampede was far better). Parking attendants were very rude, and gave poor directions on how to get to the correct lot - the person who sold us the parking pass seemed annoyed that we even asked where to go.

    Tip: It wasn't worth the money to go to the "nicest" of the restaurants. The food just was not as stellar as we had read about online.

    Tip: Pay for the extra parking! The trolley is nice, but if you’ve been walking for 7 hours, it’s not fun to have to wait for the trolley to drive you around.

    "Fun in the fall!"
    November, 2018 NEW
    My family and i had such a wonderful time at Dollywood! We hadn't been there since our children were young, so going back with one of them as an adult was certainly a treat! We LOVED seeing how many changes the park has gone through over the years! And to boot, they are still growing! We are excited and will definitely return to see the new additions! We especially enjoyed that the month of October was reserved for Southern Gospel music! The groups that performed the day we were there, Oct. 31st, were utterly fantastic!! Honestly, we could not get enough! We also thoroughly enjoyed Dolly's show, "My People, My Music"! Talk about a talented family...oh my! We were amazed and loved the show! The only thing that would make that better would be seeing Dolly enter the theater in person! We also enjoyed going through her bus! We rode the train, went into various shops, listened to music, and in general enjoyed the gorgeous day we were blessed with! We waited until dark to enter The Great Pumpkin LumiNights. Wow, wow, and wow! Everything was so well done!! We were amazed and took a ton of photos! The children that were in attendance were gathering candy at various stations and everyone seemed to simply be enjoying the night, which is wonderful! I know my family was happy and relaxed! Thank you to everyone at Dollywood for their hard work and dedication to a park designed to be beautiful, entertaining, and fun! We loved it once again!!

    Tip: Don't park in the parking lot. It's expensive. Take the Fun Time Trolley located in Pigeon Forge for .50 per person per ride. VERY inexpensive and they will transport you to and from Dollywood. It was perfect! We didn't even have to wait either time. Just make sure you have exact change. And lastly, enjoy your time at Dollywood!

    Dollywood is a very magical place during Christmas. The shows are nice to go to, puts you in the Christmas spirit. The food was decent. The only recommendation I would have to improve the experience would be to have more fire pits throughout the park and/or heaters. Heaters especially at the trolley waiting area. Dress in layers to stay warm. 😉

    The Christmas lights are great. Make sure you go to glacier ridge (top of hill) at night and watch the Christmas show using the lights on the big Christmas tree (if you can see the tree, you can see the show). We watched the "It's a Wonderful Life" show. It's a condensed version of the movie - the singers and dancers are very talented. We had to get a voucher for the show - as soon as a show starts you can get a voucher for the next show. I'm not sure how to get into the first show - it says you must have a voucher to get in. The park is very dark at night. You could see to walk, but the signs on the places to eat, places to see, and direction signs were not lit up at all. So you had to be right up on the signs to see them. We ate at Aunt Granny's. It was chaos. The buffet was so slow. They tell you to get a plate and just start anywhere. The food was just ok and the service was as slow as a turtle once seated to just give our drink order - I will not eat here again, it was not worth the price nor wait - and there wasn't that great of a food selection or food quality. I will eat somewhere else on the next trip - not a buffet with food sitting out. We took the pigeon forge trolley leaving. The park was going to close at nine. We left at eight, before the parade began. There was only one trolley running an hour before the park closing time. So we got in line at 8:05. The trolley showed up at 8:25. We barely got on the trolley, but had to stand for the ride. We were packed like sardines. The line was backed up a very long ways behind us. I am not sure why only one trolley was running an hour before closing. But the wait time between trolleys was 20 mins. So, if you don't get on the trolley then you will be waiting at least 40 mins or longer. The parking fee to me would be worth the hassle of trying to catch a trolley. We took the gatlinburg trolley to the park. The park opened at two. We waited on this trolley for an hour. We were told it would start running around 30 mins before the park opens, so we got there at 1:20. The trolley came at 2:15. We got to the park just a little before 3:00. So, we lost an hour at Dollywood because of the Gatlinburg trolley. I am not impressed with the trolley service of either city and getting/leaving dollywood. Maybe it's because it's off season and in the winter. I just know we spent alot of time waiting on trolleys (not just the dollywood experience). If you plan on seeing shows, make sure you check their times and plan to get your vouchers (or you can also pay to make reservations and get front row seats). So, my next visit I will allow an additional day to space out the shows and allow for more leisure park time in between. Also, allow time to go through Dolly's museum. There is so much in there to see - items / pictures she has collected over her life. This was very interesting, so make sure and leave some time for this also.

    The shows were excellent. We went to see all the beautiful Christmas lights. We wasn’t disappointed, beautiful lights everywhere. Very cold the day we went with a few snow flakes . The inside shows were well heated . Bought a loaf of cinnamon bread . Dollywood has changed their policy, if you come late one day ,you can’t come back the next day for free.

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.
