Drumroll please…. Dollywood is OPEN for the 2021 Season! What’s a trip to Pigeon Forge without a day (or two) at Dollywood? It’s a must-do on your vacation, honestly. We can’t get enough of the adrenaline-pumping thrill rides, delicious food, and spectacular family-fun events! 

We know, of course, you may have questions about what measures Dollywood has put in place to keep their guests as safe and healthy as possible during their visit. COVID-19 is not taken lightly at Dollywood, and we want to let you in on the scoop. 

What are the guidelines? Well…

  1. Masks: Masks/ face-coverings are required at Dollywood (as per Tennessee State Mandates as well as company policy). If you have a unique situation, visit this link to learn more. There are mask-free zones with distance markers for those who may need a break! 
  2. Capacity: Don’t worry, they are limiting capacity just like last season. Buying tickets in advance is your best bet to get in! If you plan on buying tickets at the entrance, you may get turned away, or be put on a wait. Here is the link to their website where you can purchase tickets! 
  3. Distancing: You’ll find 6-feet-apart markers all over the park. Try to stick with your party and keep your distance from others (made easy by signs and markers on the ground). WIth limits on capacity, this won’t be a hard task!  

Dollywood is taking every precaution to ensure guests have fun, and stay safe! We know that Dollywood is a staple in most people’s vacation to the Smokies, and we wanted to give you as much information as possible on what to expect during your visit. 

We hope you have a wonderful time visiting Dollywood and enjoy all they have to offer!
