Dollywood never disappoints. Even with the most people I have ever seen in the park they handle it well. They can bust a line down like pros.

Even when they are as busy as they were the staff truly acts like they love being there. I like when I ask how long they have worked for the park and you get answers always in the double digits.

The touring shows were really good and well selected. The food is still some of the best as theme parks go. They have a wining formula and cannot wait to come back again.

Great For a couple days not Disney but a great filler in between Disney World fixes. Great cast members and many fun attractions.

Great two day visit. Very big crowds the first day and obvious that the park did not anticipate such. Still a good day and satisfied visit. Arrived the second day and chose the preferred parking and well worth it. I'm not an amusement park ride/roller coaster rider but 6 of our party of 13 said the coasters at Dollywood were as good as any they've been on.

Great experience! All hosts were very nice- from the tram operators to cashiers. The park was lots of fun and very clean. We went during Spring Break so things were very busy. Expect long wait times at the more popular rides if you go during a busy time. Definitely do the season pass if you plan on going more than three days. We also cashed in on the refillable cups and popcorn bucket. Seems steep on the front end, but wound up paying for themselves by the end of day two. We will be going back before the end of the year.
