By | 2019-04-24T16:39:18+00:00 April 24th, 2019|Water Park|0 Comments

Have you ever wondered how people come up with new ideas for menu items? No? Me neither until I heard some of the hosts at Dollywood’s Splash Country talking about going to the “innovation lab” to do some food sampling in a taste kitchen.

I guess I am what you could call a Dollywood veteran… a Dollywood adventurer since before I could walk. Growing up, I’ve experienced Dollywood in several capacities… from the elementary school kid who loved Rockin’ Roadway (and truly believed I was driving that pink car) to the high schooler who wanted to ride Thunderhead [...]

As a company, we learned a lot after opening Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa—including a lot about laundry! Originally, we took care of all laundry without bells and whistles. Then, we got smart and moved the linens operation to a warehouse. That gave us a lot more elbow room to sort, wash, dry, and [...]
