Dollywood! They just added a resort hotel opening in 2015, and an ANNUAL PASS literally costs less than a ONE DAY ticket for Disney! They add new rides every year or two, and being a headliner new ride doesn’t mean you need to be a teenager with a stomach of iron to ride. Wonderful live and theater shows most of which change every year! Tennessee weather is mild most of the year and waiting lines are just not comparable to Orlando. Dollywood goes through several “Themes” during the year with different shows, decorations, music, food, etc. Festival of Nations, Barbeque and Bluegrass, Great American Summer, National Southern Gospel & Harvest Celebration, and Smokey Mountain Christmas all have a different “Feel” and make return trips really worthwhile. Festival of Nations is my favorite, with a close second being WinterFest with over 2 million LED lights and Christmas themed shows. Dollywood itself is also just the tip of the iceberg! MILES of attractions have grown up around Dollywood in Pidgeon Forge and it’s just a few minutes to Gatlinberg which has another set of stuff to see and do including the amazing Ripleys Aquarium! You could spend a week-long vacation in the area without even setting foot in Dollywood itself. A lot of people I know who live here get season passes every-other year, and go 4+ times each time they get a pass. Touring Plans staff please do yourself a favor - come to Dollywood/Pidgeon Forge/Gatlinberg for a week and see that there really is life beyond Disney/Universal!
