Dollywood ChristmasDollywood: I would love some insider tips on Dollywood at Christmas.
From Mike BianucciI will likely be visiting the week before christmas and would appreciate any tips insiders could offer me. When I went at Christmas a few years ago the ride lines were light but the shows were the opposite. It also seemed that the crowd got heavier after dark on a saturday.

From Betty Rohrertemp has to be up for coasters to run, if too cold they do not run. show lines will be long esp the new ice skating show plus christmas in the smokies. i hope to get town to close the park after christmas. one tip i have found is do not go to first show of any show.

From David L.I haven't been at Christmas, but I've heard that it is very popular. The shows should be busy due to the temperature and like the above poster said, some rides may be closed due to the cold. Try to go on the warmest day if you are into the rides! Have a great trip and be sure to post a trip report!

From Michelle SmithWe went last week, it rained on Friday and the park was empty! All of the roller coasters were running and it was about 50 degrees. They even ran into the night (9:00 pm) with the rain! Because it was empty, we were able to ride all coasters with NO WAIT! On Sat. it was 40 and sunny and the rides were all running. There was a HUGE line for the Ice Skating show on Sat. Friday in the rain...no wait! It was good, just be prepared to get in line early.
