Every summer, Pigeon Forge will see a number of motorists come through town on their way to Dollywood or Dollywood Splash Country. Visiting Dollywood is a must for anyone who visits the area! Here are a few of the best Dollywood tips for coupons, the best days to visit, what to wear, ways to save money and more! These top 10 tips will make your day at Dollywood one to remember:
1. Eat Before You Go to Dollywood
If you’re trying to save money on your trip to Dollywood this summer, try eating before you arrive. Whether that means eating breakfast or lunch, it will at least save you from spending the extra money at the park. Just plan to eat one meal at the park!
2. Take the Pigeon Forge Trolley to Dollywood
Parking is $10 for a standard-sized vehicle and even more for RVs or anything larger. Trolleys are approximately .50 per person. And it takes you right up to the park entrance, so you don’t have to walk from your car or wait on a tram ride to the front entrance of the theme park. Park your vehicle at Patriot Park for free, then take the Dollywood trolley that runs every 15 minutes. The cost of the ride to Dollywood will save you a few dollars and a few extra steps, too!
3. Dollywood Provides Free Water
One of the best Dollywood tips is to remember that they provide free water. Plenty of water is a good thing if it’s one of those hot summer days.
4. Wear the Right Clothes
If you plan on riding lots of rides (especially the water rides), plan on wearing lightweight clothing that will dry quickly. Also remember to not dress too warmly if the weather is going to be hot on the summer day you choose to visit.
The least busy days are during the middle of the week, typically Wednesdays and Thursdays. But if you don’t mind waiting in a few lines for rides, the weekends are also a lot of fun with a lot more people at the park!
6. Buy Your Tickets Before You Arrive
It’s as simple as that! You can click here to visit Dollywood’s website to purchase tickets or season passes before you arrive. If you plan to visit Dollywood more than once during a single season, then you’re definitely better off buying a season pass. It will end up being cheaper than purchasing multiple day passes each time you visit. Plus, you can upgrade to a Gold Pass for a small fee and receive a percentage off of purchases made within the park as well as free parking.
7. Dollywood Coupons: Where to Find Them
Everyone wants to know about Dollywood coupons and where to find them. Unfortunately, Dollywood doesn’t broker out discounts to third parties much like they once did, so discounts, if there are any, are few and far between. Local McDonald’s and Wendy’s restaurants are known to offer $5 off coupons for Dollywood or Dollywood Splash Country on occasion, especially in the summertime. It’s always easy to check there. You just have to purchase a beverage to get the coupon. It’s worth the few dollars of savings if they’re running that special when you’re in town!
