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!

    Dollywood was wonderful! One goes to an amusement park for the rides and Dollywood didn't disappoint. The roller coasters rung my bells and were very thrilling. The food was quite good, although it was expensive. Most amazing of all, though, is the cinnamon bread. This stuff is absolutely fantastic and is probably worth the trip alone. The guests are kind and polite, which is in stark contrast to the Disney parks. The Dollywood staff was nice and helpful for the most part. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go again.

    Amazing theme park so family-friendly clean and helpful. We have been to Disney World, Disneyland and Disney in Paris and Dollywood is absolutely just as beautiful, child & family friendly and able to help with special dietary needs. they are the first park we’ve ever been to that has a special free service that they will bring all your packages to the store at the exit that you purchased throughout the day and have them all waiting there for you so you don’t have to carry them around with you- amazing- they really think of everything to make your visit wonderful and worth the cost. They also offer 30% off admission price to military & veterans & they’re families at the gate.

    Reviewed August 22, 2019 NEW
    We are from California and I have always wanted to go to Dollywood. Having done all the Disney types and a few others we wanted to see what Dollywood was all about. We really really loved it. The roads are really good for teenagers. There’s lots of space for little kids. Most of it was shady and that made it better since it is hot in Tennessee. Everything was very very clean and it was easy to walk around and enjoy the place. As one who is more of an observer than a participator I might’ve preferred a few more benches.
