View of Smoky Mountains at sunsetOne of the top attractions in Pigeon Forge each year is Dollywood, if you are planning a family vacation on a budget have your Dollywood Coupons ready with this link and find other tips for planning your trip. If you are wanting to experience all that Dollywood has to offer with your family you may need more than one day so get the most from your one day discounted pass:

  • Arrive after 3pm to purchase your ticket and you will get in the next day on the same ticket.
  • If you want more than two days in the park the cost of a season pass will be the cost for two days.  Before you purchase your season pass first purchase the one day admission with your Dollywood Coupons and then you can upgrade the ticket before you leave to a season pass.
  • If a season pass is purchased near the end of the season in December then it will be good for the entire following season also.

Most everything that you do in Dollywood is included in the admission ticket or season pass except parking, any food, refreshments, or souvenirs that you want to purchase.  If you are planning to purchase a season pass consider getting one member of your party a gold pass because all parking is covered completely and you receive a discount on all purchases that adds up quickly if you are buying for a few people.  When you first arrive to Dollywood you can get a refillable drink mug and popcorn container if you think that you will want refills later or will be visiting the park multiple days the discounted refills add up to save more than enough to purchase the souvenir containers.

To make the most of your time in Dollywood check out the park map and show schedule that is available near the front entrance to best plan your day to fit everything possible in.  The park is designed with most things of similar  interest grouped together which helps with time management.
