My family wishes to drag me to Dollywood this summer. I used to love to ride all of the rides when I was younger but I now have moderate arthritis in my knees and have to be careful about how much walking I do. I use a cane when it gets to be too much and I will be bringing my Celebrex, which helps a great deal. However, I am one who believes in backup plans so, does Dollywood offer little electric carts for its handicapped customers to scoot around in? Is it really spread out and hilly? Should I plan for half days, perhaps? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance and have a great evening.
Thanks again for your help. :)
My family prefers staying in Gatlinburg over Pidgeon Forge because you can walk to any store or restaurant where as in Pidgeon Forge it is very spread out and hard to walk to anything. You just about have to drive to anything you wish to see or do. They have trolleys but in high season, they become very crowded. So we prefer Gatlinburg. Gatlinburg is roughly 12 miles from Pidgeon Forge. So its a personel preference.
I think that the "powers that be" in our group have finally whittled the lodging decision down to the Greystone, Glenstone, or the Riverhouse Motor Lodge in Gatlinburg. I wanted to rent a couple of cozy cabins, as I love staying in cabins, but got voted down. Oh well, that's the way it goes, sometimes.
Thanks again for your help. Have a great day.
Ya know, this family of mine are now talking about WDW next year - sheesh! I told'em I'm taking my old and lame carcass off to Italy next spring - wanna see Venice before it sinks the sea for good. They told me they were gonna work on me all year so I will go. I wish them luck with that! :-)
Have a great afternoon.
