What To Know Before Booking Your Dolly Parton Theme Park Trip

Posted on

If you are a country music enthusiast or if you simply love amusement parks, then you may want to think about adding the Dolly Parton family theme park to your list of must-see places to visit. Before you book your trip, there are a few important things you should know.

There Is An Operating Season

The vast majority of theme parks have a specific season for when they operate. The season has a lot to do with the weather as well as scheduled maintenance. And, while many theme parks will stay open during the spring and summer only, the Dolly Parton park has a long operating season. Typically, the park opens for the year in March and closes sometime in December. So, you want to keep this in mind when booking your trip. Also, since the exact open and close dates are subject to changes, you want to contact the park directly before booking.

The operating season for the water park is somewhat shorter than the one for the main theme park, so this may also be a consideration when making your reservations. The water park is not inclusive with the main park, so if you are interested in this, then make sure you are purchasing separate tickets for the park.

In addition, the theme park will operate specific holiday-inspired events. Booking your trip around Halloween or a few weeks before Christmas will allow you to take part in the festivities. 

Accommodations Are Available

The Dolly Parton theme park is quite large with an extensive array of entertainment. Live shows, roller coasters, eateries, and music shows are all included in a day at the park. This means that you can and should plan your trip around the park itself like you would if you were going to Disney World. To help with the planning, there are accommodations right on site. 

If you have a family, then you can choose to stay in one of the cabins on the resort. These cabins can often be booked as a package deal with one or two day passes to the theme park and the water park as well. If you are looking for a more pampering experience, then think about staying at the Dollywood Dreamore hotel which includes a spa.

If the resort options are a bit too pricey for you, then there are some nearby hotels that you can book a room in. 

If you want to make the most out of your Dolly Parton theme park trip, then make sure to contact the resort directly or speak with a travel agent.
