"Dissapointed in show"
November, 2015
We were in R2 at edge, couldn't see much ! The angel was beautiful if we could have seen her we only saw the back side. Couldn't see much of the decorations on top, just a rock. Would we go back ? Probably not price to much for what we saw. My 4 year granddaughter wanted to leave the first 20 mins. of the show. Maybe it would be better if we could have gotten a seat in the middle so she could see. We really looked forward to taking her to the Christmas Show ! Four Adults , Two Children, so sad we couldn't see anything nothing but back side of things ! Would I recommend this show ? NO !!! Sorry Dolly !!!

"Holly Jolly Christmas"
February, 2015
Most children adore their grandmothers but my twin sons, now 28, were especially fond of my mother because she helped me raise them. I was divorced from their father when they were very young. Being a single parent; working full time with the full responsibility of caring for twins, having my mom around to fill in when I needed her made her my special angel. She was the only help I had. So when she died this past September, our family felt such a great loss. We struggled through Thanksgiving without her. One of my son's draped my mother's apron on a chair at the dinner table! Needless to say, it was difficult to enjoy that meal. So, I decided what we needed for Christmas was a change of venue. I decided to renew some pleasant childhood memories. My sons had seen the Dixie Stampede show when visiting Gatlinburg when they were teens and loved it! I decided to try and make it happen again. I got online and within minutes, we were set thanks to the efficiency of the site. I called the boys with the news that we had tickets and they were thrilled! We spent 3 days in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and for a little while, the pain of losing my mom wasn't so overwhelming. My mother loved Christmas. I know she would have wanted me to do something to make her grandsons happy. I did my best! We were together as a family and we had a holly jolly Christmas.
Tip: Take a healthy appetite to the show. If you eat before you go, you'll miss out on enjoying some really tasty food. Don't worry that you have no utensils, that's part of the fun!!

"Christmas at Dixie Stampede"
January, 2015
We went to Pigeon Forge/Dixie Stampede during the week of Thanksgiving. The ease of ordering tickets to the review was smple and easy. Check-in was fairly easy, even though it was a very busy time. We were able to quickly find a seat for the pre-entertainment. Waitresses came around often to offer snacks purchases. Pre entertainment show was very funny and entertaining, we enjoyed it. our group ranged from ages 2 - 52. Finding our seat for the show was extremely easy and there were plenty enough employees to guide us. The show itself was sensational, and the food was not only delicious, but also very filling. We will be going back to Pigeon Forge next year as well, and will be sure to visit Dixie Stampede again.
Tip: Arrive early & bring your e-tickets with you if you ordered online.

"Family Vacation"
January, 2015
My mom, daughter, grand kids and I all took a trip to Tennessee while over there we went to the Dixie Stampede to watch the Christmas show. We all enjoyed it so much, the grand kids want to go back sometime. My mother really enjoyed it as much as I did we absolutely loved the manger scene it really touched our hearts. My daughter loved the races and competitions we were on the South Pole, she said "Mom I am glad we are on the South Pole cause we are from the South" I recommend families to go and check it out it was amazing. We loved the greeters out front as well my daughter and grand kids asked them for pictures with them and they smiled and said sure. We have went places where they look at you like why do you want to get a picture with me? but not theses girls they were very friendly. We also enjoyed the food it was a lot so we bagged it up for later. We absolutely love the Dixie Stampede and most definitely go again.

It was wonderful as always, we have been to every one of Dolly's places and love it every time, the Pigeon Forge show is always great and we loved the one in Branson, Mo as well as the Florida place ( closed now) and Myrtle Beach, SC show was always great too.

No matter what seat you are in at the Stampede you are in a good one! The food was good, the server was awesome, and the entertainment had my kids forgetting to eat as they were enthralled by the show. My family would not change a thing about our experience except that we all wished we could meet Dolly herself in person while there! It's hard to please all 5 of my children but Dixie Stampede did just that.

"Dixie Stampede Christmas in Pidgeon Forge"
January, 2015
I have been wanting to see one of the shows in Pigeon Forge for some time now when ever I go to East Tennessee to visit my son and his family but have been reluctant because I was not sure if my grandchildren would sit still that long. But this year we decided to try it. So we took them to the Dixie Stampede Christmas show and I'm glad we did. We all really enjoyed it. My 7 year old grandson was completely captivated throughout entire show. Even my 2 year granddaughter sat quietly the whole time. Which is amazing for her! She enjoyed the horses. All of the staff was very nice and considerate. If you should make a trip to Pigeon Forge, I would recommend that you put this on your "Things to do list". The food is very good and the show is very entertaining and family friendly
Tip: Dixie Stampede is very conscious about allergies and special needs that their guests may have. My grandaughter is highly allergic to peanuts, so they guided us away from the saloon where peanuts were on the floor.

"MUST SEE THIS SHOW!"
January, 2015
Each time my family plans a trip to the Smokey Mountains, it includes a visit to the Dixie Stampede. It is one of our favorite things to do while in the area. The food is delicious, the entertainment superb, and it has something to mesmerize every family member, young and old. My granddaughter aspires to one day perform in the Dixie Stampede. The Christmas show is truly a special experience. The regular show is spectacular. We will be back many times, and look forward to a great experience each and every time! Thank you all for your hard work performing, cooking, serving, and all of the other jobs that are necessary to make the performance work like clockwork!!!!!! No one should come to the area without seeing this show!

We chose to go to the Dixie Stampede during our last visit to Gatlinburg Jan. 2015. The tickets prices to some may seem a little high but it is so worth it. It was one the best shows I have ever seen and the 4 course dinner they serve you is better than you could get at any restaurant. Those 2 things combined made the price so worth it. We saw the Christmas show and we will definitely be checking out other shows soon. My 4 yr old loved it, its a great family show!

"Amazing!"
January, 2015
We decided to take a 2 day trip to Pigeon Forge because for years my husband and I visited every year, even twice a year. After we had children, it has been harder to get away as much but still visited on occasion. We took our oldest daughter to Dixie Stampede when she was a little over 2 and she was intrigued so we decided to take our youngest daughter last year to see the Christmas program and she is not even a year and a half old. They both loved it! The youngest sat so good and enjoyed every bite of her food, the corn on the cob was her favorite. I enjoyed the show like it was my first time seeing it. I have bad allergies and the horses bother them really bad but it doesn't stop me from going when I get a chance. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas program at the Dixie Stampede and the family experience and memories that we made that will last a lifetime! We will definitely be back to Pigeon Forge soon and to Dixie Stampede.
Tip: Make sure to make a reservation for Dixie Stampede and if you have bad allergies, take some medicine with you but enjoy the show because it is amazing!

"Fun in the South"
January, 2015
I have always enjoyed vacationing in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. My friend and I having been returning vacationers of the area for more than 14 years. We go in May for 10 days and October for 3/4 days. We always wanted to make a visit there in December but never were able to do so. This past December (2014), we decided it's time for a Christmas show in our favorite area. We chose Dixie Stampede. What an excellent choice it was. The show was wonderful and the food outstanding. The people were so considerate and cheerful to be around. Of all the places on the earth to travel to, I'd rather be in the Great Smoky Mountain area than anywhere else on earth. We have favorite restaurants there and even know all the employees by name. Nothing would make me happier than being able to win a thousand dollar "visit" in Pigeon Forge. Thank you for considering me.
Tip: Take antacids with you. The food is great but you WILL overeat! Make sure you are ready for fun!!!

My husband, Gary and I went to Pigeon Forge for a weekend getaway. We arrived on the day after Thanksgiving. I had purchased our tickets online..easy done..We had never seen the Christmas Show. WOW! The performance was a A+ . The food was savory..the atmosphere made us get in the Holiday Spirit! The staff and servers were so friendly that it just made a fantastic date night to kick off the Christmas season.
Tip: Definitely get there early ..take some photos! Make time for the pre-show..it is also very entertaining..even for children.

"Worth ever penny"
January, 2015
I was traveling with some friends, one of which has terminal stage cancer. His wife requested that we go to the Dixie Stampede. And boy, I'm glad we did. The show was very entertaining from the music, the props, choreography, the cast. We went on Christmas season, so we were able to watch a spectacular Christmas show while eating the delicious feast they served for us. To me, eating the meal while watching the Christmas show was just reminiscent of home where I can eat comfortably and be myself while watching TV. My 4 yr old really enjoyed the show. We all did. Including our ailing friend. He said he did not regret pushing himself to get out of our cabin and get in the car to go to the Dixie Stampede. He is fighting for his life in the ICU as I write this but I take comfort in the fact that we were able to take him and his wife to this show and they both had a really good time.
Tip: It's worth purchasing the ticket with the meal because they serve a delicious feast

All staff was very courteous. Food was amazing and the show was perfect for the whole family. My grandson was 18 months old and sat through the whole show. He was amazed and so was I. Would highly recommend going.
Tip: Making your reservation in advance eliminated a wait time at the door. It was nice to be in an alcohol free setting.

"First Christmas visit, wonderful; Second Christmas visit; disappointing."
January, 2015
Our most recent visit was disappointing. There were vacant seats all over the venue and yet we were stuck behind the stage. The man next to me leaned forward the entire show so I could not even enjoy the activity toward the other end of the arena.

I asked our server for a straw twice (she gave others a straw) and never did get one.

We were there 3 years ago and the show, seating, food, and service were wonderful and the arena was packed with visitors. I was expecting the same this year.
Tip: Eat with your fingers.

We went to the Christmas show while on a family getaway weekend and had a blast! The food was delicious and the show was fantastic! We were impressed by the variety of the different types of animals they incorporate. Wonderful! Highly recommend.
Tip: For this show, I recommend getting seats that are mid-level and higher. Our seats were second row and we felt we would have had a better view if we were back away from the action somewhat. Just our opinion.

We stayed right before Christmas the cold winter nights were great sitting in the hot tub on our deck enjoying the mountain air. The lights from the city were really beautiful and our visit to Dixie Stampede was awesome we were really touched by the manger scene this really had meaning right at Christmas time my husband and I both almost cried. Our trip was great for the two of us because a few days later it was back home and the special time was gone.

"where's the silverware?"
January, 2015
When you think about going ' out to eat .. and will eat with your fingers,..you might say "WHAT!?" Ya, it might be okay IF you are going for French fries and a hamburger,...but to a 'dinner theater'? The thought of hundreds of people sitting at a long table with a thin table like a feeding trough and everyone grabbing their dinner with their hands,...plus...you are PAYING FOR IT...is nuts! BUT BOY DID WE HAVE FUN! Hundreds of waiters and waitresses all so coordinated to feed the crowd with delicious food in such a perfect timing for courses was amazing. The food was good and even 'doggie bags were ready for the food left over from the big portions of filling food. On top of this activity going on, you get entertained by colorful and active entertainment happening in the arena below you. It didn't just stay there, as they got the audience participation in a contest of 'north vs. south' competition. Entertainment, rivalry and 'eatin' with yer hands'...what more could ya want!Great night!
Tip: Use the restroom before sitting down in the long table you can't get out of without everyone moving.2-Be sure to see the downstairs show ahead of time but don't 'eat' a lot there, because there is so much food when you get in the dinner theater.

"The Joys of a Mentally Challenged Son at Dixie Stampede"
January, 2015
Our son, now 48 years old, was adopted at the age of three. We have two other children, both born to us. But they've gone on with their lives and as we've aged, they have pretty well abandoned us, except for Larry our adopted son. One Sunday morning my wife saw this full page ad in the Grand Rapids newspaper stating this pretty little blond head boy needed a home. We called and found we were one of 39 couples who had inquired. They selected 21 for an interview. My wife just knew Larry was our boy and made plans from the outset to bring him home and she told the agency as much. Sure enough we were blessed to have our first child. But in the process we found out Larry was born mentally challenged and had been going through a lot of testing at the University of Michigan. They could make no promises to us as to how far he would progress mentally. That was 45 years ago. Today Larry is a wholesome young man who works at Liberty University as a dishwasher. He is making it. He comes home faithfully every Christmas to be with us, our only child to do so. This year we wanted to treat him with a trip to Pigeon Forge and share with him the Dixie Stampede. Oh as the horses came out, the angels descended from the ceiling, the camels traveled in front of us, the contest between North and South, we saw the delight of a three old again through the eyes of our 48 year old son. Talk about a blessed Christmas and the joy of celebrating it. The Dixie Stampede took us back to the true meaning of it for us. We saw how much God loves us and reminded us of how much we love our son Larry. Thank You.
Tip: Be prepared to be overwhelmed with joy, such joy you'll need a hanky for the tears.

Not the cheapest thing to do, but you get a FULL meal and good entertainment. The horses are healthy and are very talented. The riders are skilled and everyone seems happy to be there. The seating is close and it gets fairly crowded, but the show was wholesome and lengthy without being drawn out. Staff was helpful. Food was good, not amazing, but good with a good bit of variety. We will go again in a few years.
Tip: Don't eat. Photography is not allowed during the show. :(

"The GREATEST Dinner Show EVER!"
January, 2015
The Dixed Stampede is the best dinner show we have ever seen! My family loved every minute of the Christmas Nativity. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! The Nativity part of the show was EXCELLENT and Biblical -- from the (live) Angel hovering over, manger scene lowered from the ceiling, the shepherds with their sheep and goats, the wise men arriving on camels (chills when the camels bowed for dismount in front of the manger -- appeared to be bowing to King Jesus), ending with a dove flying to the angel. Magnificent! The ENTIRE show with such talented riders, music, and competitions were a real treat. PERFECT family entertainment, right down to the champion chicken race and the MAGIC gift box. Even the "no utensils" meal is fun and tasty. This was our second trip to the Dixie Stampede and both were VERY entertaining. Easily the best family fun shows in Pigeon Forge. Hats off to Dolly and her team! Thank you for the TRUE nativity depiction (although the wise men were likely 2 years later). Breathtaking! One of the best I've witnessed. PLUS, ALL staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.

Our family of 6 including a toddler went during December. We had such a great time. It was very easy to get in and seated. The show was great and food excellent. Servers were very cordial. The show was so fun as it was Christmas themed. Skeeter was just so funny. We would love to go again, One small thing I know you try and fit a lot of people in but the seating was very cramped and after about an hour it was hard. Also I would enjoy some utensils Lol. Thanks
Tip: The seating is very cramped if you are very large may need two seats wasn't aware toddler didn't get a space to sit/and no utensils

Tip: The one thing I personally could omit is the pre-show before entering the arena. Too crowded and noisy. The entertainers are very good, but it's a bit too loud and "close" for my taste. ALSO, our reservations were made through Reserve Direct on-line. QUICK and EASY -- printed off our tickets at home.

This was my family's very first time to Pigeon Forge so we knew the Dixie Stampede was a must. For years I had always heard good things and even knew a few people who worked there. We are a rodeo family so I must admit I was a little worried about these Western Shows. I was afraid it would be done with cheap taste but boy did they prove me wrong. My kids ages 11 and 6 could barely stay in their seat. They loved the trick riding and pig and pony races. Most of all they are still talking about the magic act and even my husband and his friends are still trying to figure it out. LOL. We are already planning a trip back for a summer show, just not sure it will be this year. Also the entertainment before the show was honestly one of the best I have seen in Years. It really brought me back home listening to those Banjos. So if you have never been please take my advice and go I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!!
Tip: 2 things you should know: 1) arrive early so you can enjoy the entertainment before the show and check out all the horses that will be performing. 2) Better come Hungry!!!!

Firstly, the food is good if you don't mind eating with your hands in the dark. Cornish game hen (kinda greasy but good), half a roasted potato (dry), half cob of corn, slice of pork loin (good), and a biscuit served with your cup of soup (both were awesome and ask for seconds quick because they don't come back). Refillable teas and soda, and I can't remember if there was a dessert. The pre-entertainment was awesome, but the "saloon" where it was shown is a mess for a disabled person. They weren't exactly forthcoming about how difficult it is to maneuver through the venue. One small elevator was a horrendous walk from the front area, while crowding through the throng that waited just as long as we did to get through the labyrinth of the queue to get inside. The show itself was fun, and entertaining and funny as heck with Skeeter, the comedic sidekick. A bit corny if you're from the big city, but funny for kids and older folks.

Visited with my four year old son whilst in Pigeon Forge and I would definitely recommend. We arrived early for the pre-entertainment which was enjoyable. The seating was well organised and there really was no rush to get into the arena as the servers made sure parties were sat together in their allotted area. The animals look really well cared for and you get the opportunity to see them in the arena and in the stables after the show. If you buy cups in advance you need to ask for these downstairs before you enter the arena. We didn't and so didn't get them during the show, but had to get them afterwards from the gift shop.
