Im visiting Dollywood for the first time in the beginning of August and was looking for any info that you can give me about the park.(also the area) So does anyone have any tips or plan of attack for the park. We were planning on getting the ticket option where you can visit later in the day the first day and come back the next day, will this give us enough time to enjoy all the park has to offer?? Also any possible discounts in admission prices for the park?? And any picks for the best places to eat inside the park??
We are a family of 5 so if anyone has any info on hotels that sleep 5 in the area it would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I will be using the ticket option where you come in after 3 and get the next day free as well. I'll be going in a few days, so I'll tell you how it goes.

We went last summer and almost got the whole park in a day, so you should have no problem with the day and a half. The best place to eat is the buffet and I can not remember the name of it, but the food was great. There are a lot of shows so go on the site and try to plan your day around the ones you want to see. The water rides are a load of fun. Blazing saddles was a bit rough and can be bypassed. Have fun, it is a great little park! Where are you staying? We stayed at the Golfview cabins that are .5 miles away on the same road as Dollywood, they were very nice.

we go 2 or 3 times a year. Dollywood is small park. the day plus ticket should let you do all of rides and the shows you want to see but would not let you do the water park. there is a ticket that lets you do both parks but i am not sure what it is called. i like most of the sit down places in the park. we do Aunt Grannys just about each trip all you can eat and price is not bad for a park. grabbing a burger at a stand is where the price hurts you at Dollywood. on day that you can get in at start of day do Thunderhead and the new ride i forget the name first. remember the train ride is 20 minutes from when it leaves the station not just around the park. hope this help as we are going this weekend
