As much as I would love it if we didn’t have to close Dollywood for the winter, I’m equally glad we have that time to tackle big projects that improve the guest experience year-to-year. Just think of all that our team is able to accomplish! The way the calendar falls, there are 69 days [...]

As the Dollywood brand has grown, so has the diversity of markets from whence our visitors hail. What was once a sleepy, regional theme park is now a popular family destination featuring a 160-acre theme park, 35-acre water park, resort and cabin properties. With the caliber of attractions we have to offer, families and [...]

Unique Christmas Gifts at Dollywood

By | 2019-11-27T13:38:29+00:00 December 2nd, 2019|Shopping|0 Comments

Do you have your Christmas shopping done? I hate that question. Mostly because my answer is no until maybe Dec. 23. I’m the type of person who really likes to think of unique gifts. I shudder when my mom tells me to buy socks for my dad or a gift certificate for my brother. But, [...]

When I heard Dollywood’s General Manager talking about how he was on the original Christmas-light-hanging crew, I knew I needed to know more. Gene Scherrer is now Dollywood’s General Manager. He’ll be retiring at the end of this season. But, in 1990, he was on the Attractions and Special Events team. Gene recalls how [...]

What Is A Pre-K Imagination Pass?

By | 2020-09-24T15:12:06+00:00 November 19th, 2019|Family Visits|0 Comments

My little boy was born in 2015—that means he is eligible for Dollywood’s Pre-K Imagination Pass! Because it’s new, I thought it would be helpful to do a video-explainer covering what it is, who’s eligible and how to register. And for those who aren’t familiar with all there is for preschool-aged kids to do, [...]

First Snowfall of the Season!

By | 2019-11-14T17:49:53+00:00 November 12th, 2019|Community|0 Comments

Dollywood saw a lovely dusting of snow this morning. While we are located in the foothills of the mountains, snow in November is a bit unusual for us in East Tennessee. In fact, I can’t remember accumulation this early in recent memory. Last night, I left the office without a jacket enjoying temperatures in [...]

HERE’S WHY You Should Buy 2020 Season Passes

By | 2020-09-24T15:09:47+00:00 November 2nd, 2019|Trip Planning|0 Comments

I’m a mom on a budget. There’s an unlimited wish list my children have—and then there’s reality. [Side note: parents, isn’t it SO FUN when kids reach that age when they want everything they see on TV and the internet?] That’s why I’m a big supporter of experiences over things. Instead of amassing junk, [...]
