I’m always on the lookout for two things: money-saving deals AND offers that benefit my family. When I find things that fit this bill, I am eager to share. This blog is about great food deals you can find at Dollywood’s Splash Country. The food game is strong at Splash Country, so you really can’t go wrong (hello, walking tacos, Nashville Hot Chicken sliders and Frito pie). Below I’ll list my favorite feed-your-crew-for-a-bargain offerings.
First, I want to tell you about the pizza. Clearly, I am a big fan. I already dedicated an entire blog post about how great this pizza is. At Campsite Grill, you have the option of ordering a 16-inch cheese or pepperoni pizza. It’s a large, but considered an extra-large! Here’s the deal: get a large pizza with four fountain drinks for $29.99!
If it makes more sense for your group, you could order four personal pizzas plus four drinks for $39.99.
Picnic in the Park
Picnic in the Park is food on-demand. You walk up, look through the freshly-stocked cooler shelves and find the snack or meal you want. I grabbed a picture behind-the-scenes as some sandwiches were being prepped. (It was such a hit at the water park, you will now see Picnic in the Park locations at Dollywood!) While you can purchase items a la carte, I want to be sure you know that there’s a great deal: choose four sandwiches (or mix and match with salad or wrap options), two family sides (like macaroni or potato salad), four bottled drinks and four cookies for $54.99. Look for Picnic in the Park to the right of Campsite Grill.
Cook-Out Style Meal
Dollywood’s Splash Country decided to open Big River Pavilion as a dining location for anyone who wants cook-out style food (think: charcoal-grilled burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, etc.) The reason I want to tell you about this option is that it’s new—which means not everyone knows about it, so there’s little-to-no line! Also, drinks are included with the meal for $11.99. The food alone is great value, but add in the quick service and drink included, and this may be your new favorite meal! Big River Pavilion is located next to TailSpin Racer.
Retreat Meal Options
If you book a Retreat during your Splash Country visit (which I HIGHLY recommend), your dining options include family meal deals such as Family Buckets. You can choose from chicken tenders and fries or burgers and fries (OR, my choice: a combo of both!) for $39.99. Yes, this is a bucket piled full of food. I’ve gotten this with my family and I was not disappointed! Or, you could choose a sub platter, and that comes with four subs and four bags of chips for $36.99. The beauty of this option is that you pick up the phone in your Retreat to order the food, tell them what time you would like it delivered and then you go enjoy your day. It’s THE BEST.
