“Swooning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Dollywood's Festival of Nations is really the greatest! My favorite entertainment this year was Swoon--from Australia. Four actors on high poles swoon back and forth to tell an intriguing love story. Don't miss this. Also, Shanghai Cirque was great with its acrobatics, costumes and music.
My vote for enjoyable music goes to the group from Equador--Atalhuapa(sp.?) Wish I could have seen every performance--not enough time.

“Season Pass Holders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

This makes the 2nd year we have had season passes and we love it!! We love the mountain-y feel Dollywood offers. It's very excluded and we love the Family friendly atmosphere.

“Hello Dolly !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

My DH & I visited Pigeon Forge to celebrate our 22nd anniversary. We stayed at the Ramada Parkway - again for me but first time for him. The staff was wonderful once again & we had a very pleasant stay, with special thanks to Thomas for a lot of little attentions. We were able to buy a 2-day ticket to Dollywood right at the hotel & we spent 2 full days enjoying the Festival of Nations. We did this several years ago & this time was no disappointment - great shows, music & food! We took advantage of a wonderful offer: upgrade our ticket to a season pass for just $23 ! This service was available at several locations throughout the park & we stepped up to a cashier & paid in about 3 minutes. Now we had to get a photo ID - that took over an hour & we waited til the end of the day at the entrance after trying the only other location which had an hour & 45 minute wait. Now Dolly does so many things so well, surely a few more picture-taking places could be set up! Other than this, we had a fabulous time & will go again in the fall. On the PLUS side, we asked & were told that now that we have the season pass, we can renew next year on line! There's much more Dolly in our future!

“GREAT Theme Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This was my FIRST trip to Dollywood. Although this is a smaller amusement park, I was absolutely thrilled and delighted at all it has to offers. Lots of roller coaster rides and zip lines for the thrill seekers in your group; lots of shows for all ages. Absolutely excellent food and all was VERY affordable. You will need to allow one full day to take advantage of everything. I would definitely return.
