Its a fun place to visit. Not a huge park just enough walking around. Must see the bird show and ride the train. They is lots to do for all ages. You get free ice water throughout the park. Fireworks at 9:30. Dolly is an amazing woman. She has done a lot for kids and her community. She has a huge heart!!.

My grandchildren (ages 11 and 14) and my daughter (age 43), and grandmom (age 68), spent the day at Dollywood. My grandchildren loved the rides (especially the Eagle), and rode them repeatedly. Grandmom said it was one of the prettiest amusement parks she has seen and felt good about the grandkids ability to ride their favorite rides without lengthy delays. My grandkides rated this experience as their favorite during the week they spent in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Smokey Mountain National Park.

Our family had a blast at Dollywood. Myself and our older kids loved the roller coasters while my husband and toddler walked around and shopped and snacked on delicious food. It was a fun day. We got all of our pictures on a card and was emailed to us. Worth every penny. Will go back again soon :)

We got free tickets to the park and so glad we went. Here we are over 50 years old going to a park? Yup we did. We had a blast and went on many of the rides. What a nice clean, friendly park. The food was some of the best I have ever had at a park, and it didn't break the bank like other parks do for a bad burger. We ate at Grannys kitchen. WOW, a real meal-all you can eat. I can't wait for my drandaughter to grow up and bring her. This is the way a park should be. It was about family fun ad memories more than just making money.
