It was our anniversary weekend, and we enjoy visiting Dollywood this time of year for all the wonderful shows. We had not been in a few years, but once again... It did not disappoint!

We visited on a cold, rainy day in Dec and pretty much had the place to ourselves. Due to the rain, we only rode several rides. But we enjoyed the shows so very much and the entire park was decorated beautifully for Christmas. I especially loved the show that included the living nativity and how Dollywood has religious performances like... More

Everything under one roof. If you like music and stage, it's there. Rollercoasters your bag, its there. Crafts and kitschy touristy things, it's there. Boutique shopping, yup! My children loved it and it has been an annual trip since the early 90s.

We took one day to visit Dollywood. I bought the ticket through AAA (discount). Hours are inconstant during the time we were there. Sometimes 11-9 sometimes 2-9. The shows are super crowded. We got to see 2, but the big shows we waited in line and then were turned away because they reached capacity. I understand you need to get... More

Visited with a 4 yr old on thanksgiving evening and the Friday following. We choose pigeon forge for our thanksgiving trip because of the reviews and awards Dollywood has won for best park to visit at Christmas. The park was decorated very nice. There weren't a lot of rides that my 4 year old would ride. The shows were disappointing... More

Need to get in touch with your inner child? Dollywood is the place to visit anytime between November and December to give you a boost to your Christmas spirit. Lights and decorations everywhere. The shows are so amazing words cannot describe the talent, costumes and love of all the performers that are a part of this wonderful Wonderland called Dollywood.... More

Loved it! Great atmosphere. Extremely clean. Touching shows based on excellent values. Dolly Parton Museum was very impressive. Quite personal. The only negative was the food service. Food inside the park is overpriced. No good Gluten free options.
