Joan B.

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!

    "Excellent Family Friendly Park"
    August 2019 NEW
    We are true Disney people who travel to Disney World 1-2 times per year. Dollywood completely blew me away. I didn't know what to expect, but was so impressed with every detail in the park, the theming was top-notch, as was the storytelling the moment you stepped into a a ride queue. I absolutely loved the variation of rides (many roller coasters, but also rides adequate for younger kids). We didn't get to see many shows, but the country dancing show we watched was very entertaining. If you are a Dolly fan you must set aside some time to visit her museum. There is so much to see from costumes to shoes to awards. We didn't have time to eat a meal while at the park, but we made certain to stop for some cinnamon bread. It's about $10 a loaf, but it is worth the price and the extra calories. I can go on and on about how top-notch this park is. I am sorry that I didn't spend two days here. I would love to see every single show that is offered and I'd love to take more time to see the craftsmen in action. I highly recommend a visit to Dollywood. You will not be disappointed. Just a few side notes, parking costs $15 and you cannot bring in any drinks or snacks. Shame that visitors cannot bring in water and small snacks. You are at the mercy of the park's food and beverages, so that can affect your budget.

    Reviewed September 18, 2019 NEW
    My wife and and I re-visited Dollywood for the first time since the big fire in the area a couple of years ago. The rides and the food are still terrific, but the cherry on top was the Dreamland Drive-in show at the Pines Theatre. The performances by the young cast were first rate in every way. I was particularly blown away by the cast performing a mash of several 60’s hits anchored by “Unchained Melody”. Broadway has nothing on these kids believe me.

    "The BEST rollercoasters!!!"
    TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
    Reviewed September 17, 2019 NEW
    I love roller coasters and have ridden close to over a hundred different ones and this park has two of the all time best! The Thunderhead coaster is the best...speeding along a track at top speeds, never slowing down (no braking here!). The track twists and turns unexpectantly giving thrills throughout the ride. Dollywood is a great happy park...other than the coasters, the park is really not ride-centric...it has lots of stores and lots of shows.

    What a great place! It’s clean and beautifully landscaped. Shows are fun and park employees are friendly. This is the only theme park I’ve seen that had dryers to dry your and/or your childre’s clothes after water contact. There’s lots of country music history. Be prepared to walk up and down a lot of hills! There was a sizable discount if you are a veteran too.

    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.
