Original review: Dec. 30, 2016

My family and I had season tickets for Dollywood theme park. Each time we went we weren't able to ride but a few things and the last time, Dec. 27, 2016, we arrived at 10:00 and one grandchild rode 2 rides by 2:30 and the other two kids and I rode 1 {one!} ride. We weren't able to buy food because of the long lines and had 1 drink each the whole time we also had some popcorn even with the rides so packed they were still letting in more people. Luckily we rode the trolley and didn't have to wait in the line to go through the Emporium which stretched far beyond the store entrance back into the park or our experience would have been much worse. We will never go to Dollywood again because it's not worth the amount of money for one ride and hours of waiting in line. I wonder if there is a limit to how many people can be in a building because of safety. Why isn't there a limit to how many people can be in a theme park?

Very clean park and friendly people. Expensive for 1 day, but season pass is a great deal. Something for everyone--nature, history, fun, great food, amusement rides.

    Disney quality is always there. A little overpriced. Pretty self-guided. Nothing much added. Disneyland is wondering and nostalgic for me. However, I think it is pricing itself out of reach for many. The average family with children usually can't afford to stay on property.

    Great places to stay that are all within a few minutes of the park. Awesome, very clean, very friendly staff. Great breakfast and nice pools.
