Editor's Note: This post was written by Dollywood Entertainment Manager, Roger White. Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Christmas festival has always been somewhat of an enigma to me.  Sounds weird, right?  It’s not that I don’t understand the lights, colors, smells, sounds and, most importantly, the spiritual undercurrents that run throughout. I more than understand it. [...]

When you have 6 *million* twinkling lights to take in, we all have the tendency to stop noticing details and just see color. If you're thinking, well, there’s just too much good stuff to miss at Dollywood (and we can’t have you miss it!), our Product and Planning team decided to change up what [...]

Dollywood is always an amazing experience no matter the season. But for me, there is something a little more special when the park is decked out with more than 5 million lights…wait, check that.

It’s crunch week at Dollywood! That’s what we call it internally, anyway. We have teams of people working around the clock to flip everything—décor, signage, stage sets, merchandise, menus, you name it—from fall to Christmas. Our special events team is well-equipped to make this transition because [...]

Editor's Note: This blog was originally posted July 17, 2021. Behind Wildwood Grove’s perimeter fence sits an air field. It’s not always been there. It was added for the nighttime experience we have for Smoky Mountain Summer Celebration. To be honest, I couldn’t picture what a 3D multi-sensory drone light show would be like. [...]
