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!

    Tip: We got there when the doors opened and didn’t have to wait in line for about 5 rides! Also I would just purchase the photo pass for $40 it’s worth it!

    October 2019 NEW
    This review is from a person that is not a fan of Amusement Parks. However I am a fan of Dolly and wanted to visit Dollywood while in TN.
    The park is great, family friendly, low key , not overpriced, clean and there is something for everyone. I would high recommend visiting. If you visit make sure to try the loaf of Cinnamon beard ! It is AMAZING.

    Tip: If you like low key and don't want to wait in lines to get on rides go on a weekday. I hear Monday-Wed is the least busy days.

    "Beautiful Park"
    TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
    Reviewed November 14, 2019 NEW
    This park is just lovely! It is nestled in the Smokies and very nice. There are many fun rides for the adventurous, and many for the more family oriented. We went during the Fall Festival and the park was decorated beautifully and very clean. The staff all seemed friendly. The only complaint I have with the park is the food. It is, as most amusement parks very expensive, and not really good. There aren't many places to sit if you go to the walk up style booth. Overall, it is a fun place to visit.

    We just came home from Dollywood, a place where we have been many times, but with each visit, we see that they’re more interested in making money than providing the best experience. It opened up at 2pm and many of the rides weren’t open. All the booths selling products and the games of chance were up and running, but not the roller coasters and rides for younger children. They have a lot of nerve charging full price for a park with 30% unavailable. Don’t get me started on the prices they charge for their food.

    On what felt like one of the hottest days of the year, my partner and I visited Dollywood for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised by the rollercoaster at this park. We did the fast pass, which I highly recommend, so it made our access to the park more enjoyable.

(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.
