Crowded. Make reservations if possible.
Oct 2021
We didn't spend much time here so don't have a strong opinion. Restaurants were crowded with long waits. If possible, make reservations. We didn't eat here. We wanted a Margarita. Hard to find an open stool at any of the little bars. Lots of folks sitting in chairs. Great looking Ferris wheel.

Entertaining!!
Oct 2021 • Family
So first of all, it is overpriced. But is a vacation destination, so that is to be expected. There is a ton for kids to do, especially preteens and teens. The restaurants all had long waits, but we went on a weekend and that was to be expected. We enjoyed going to Margaritaville and the Island Bar. Out of all the things we did in Pigeon Forge, this was one of your favorite places to go.

Nice!
Oct 2021
My wife has been to the Island a couple of times over the years and kept saying we should go, So this trip we did. We bought season tickets to Dollywood this year and have been several times this season but have left feeling disappointed. The number of rides and food/drink places that have been closed seems to be growing. We keep hearing it's because of staffing issues. Now I know this IS true to some extent BUT it didn't seem to be much of a problem here! Not one shop was closed. EVERY restaurant was open and so were the places to get a snack or drink! No huge lines for the rides and the wait time for dinner was normal. Now this isn't a place to spend the entire day but it IS a nice place to spend several hours with the family.

Great shopping, tons of attractions for all ages. Ole Smoky Moonshine Barn is a must do. Big Rock Candy has the best fudge.

Everything In One Spot!
Oct 2021 • Solo
Took two trips here and the Pigeon Forge Island has everything you need! Parking is free, but can get a bit congested. While on the island, there is so much to do and see such as a ferris wheel, food, drinks including beer sampling, shopping, souvenirs, arcade games, rides for the kiddies, music, and rocking chairs for relaxation and taking in the scene. This is a must while in Pigeon Forge!

I have 3 kids ranging from 9-16. They all have a blast at the Island. Food, entertainment and just getting to sit back and watch the excitement.
