P. 771: Onsite employee housing under construction at Dollywood

Recommended Posts

It's getting to the price where they should toss in SDC with the gold pass.. The gold pass at Dollywood sounds to be more than I paid for my CF platinum pass, and that includes their water parks.

 

I'm sure this is a feature that wouldn't be used much and for the guest who do use it, possibly only used once a year. But it would build value

Yes but these top tier passes at other parks include all their parks for free

 

With the new waterpark coming to town, my wife and I are holding out on renewing our superpass to see their prices

$129 for regular pass is $5 less than current price for 2019 pass.

 

$214 for gold is $5 more than current price.

 

As much as I like DW it's getting hard to justify. I haven't been making as many trips nor staying as long as 3-4 years ago. Already dropped water park because it wasn't getting used.

 

if passes were still priced like 4-5 years ago sure.

Considering their entertainment budget and the fact that the park is fully open with all dry rides open and tons of shows from mid March through the first weekend in January that seems like a totally reasonable price.

I guess it depends on how many days you plan on attending the park. I know, right now, I'm over-saturated with park passes and it's become hard to utilize them all and still "adult". I haven't been to SF or any busch park at all this year, let alone only used my CF plat pass a few times at carowinds (which is an hour away). I guess it balls down to being able to really plan to get your moneys worth.

Odd question, but how well does cinnamon bread taste a few days later? My family is wondering if I could bring a loaf home.

 

Keeps a few days and great warmed a bit.

 

Maybe longer if repackaged. The last time I kept some 3-4 days it dried out and got hard. But we had eaten some of it so maybe we didn't reseal well. Haven't tried keeping long since.

Yeah, we get seadon passes every other year and get to go to Christmas festivities there every year that way. It’ll be $350 for two of us to go to the park four times (twice each Christmas).

 

So that’s $90 for two tickets and parking per visit. And really, we may go again in May and use a bring a buddy pass each which would be another 4 admissions,

 

So 12 tickets, 5 parking passes and food discounts for $350. It’s a no brainer, personally.

Thanks! It only needs to make it 2 days.

Yeah, that's a fair point. I just looked it up too, and SDC is going for $114 atm (though we paid $98 adult/$88 kids since we renewed our '19 passes before the end of '18). Seems like a lot of money, and it is a lot of money, but the value is there.

My wife and I have had passes for 3 or 4 years and we’re not planning on renewing for next year. It has been getting harder for us to get off work to go and we usually can only go during the peak times or weekends. The last time we went, we only stayed for maybe an hour and a half because it was just so crowded.

Has anyone been to the ACE event Great Smoky Mountain Coasterfest? Was wondering if it's worth driving 8 hours from DC to visit Dollywood for the first time during that event? Was also thinking of going to the Smoky Alpine Coaster, Goats on the roof coaster, Titanic museum, and Hatfield and McCoy dinner show

Dollywood is magical at Christmas, worth the trip by itself especially if you have younger members of the family. The Smoky Alpine Coaster, and Goats on the roof coaster are great, especially if you can schedule a day and a night ride (usually a reduced cost if done on the same

Day. Never done the Titanic museum, but the Hatfield and McCoy dinner show is a favorite

Just to clarify, Timesaver Unlimited isn't just one ride on Lightning Rod, right? I want to get it for Saturday but the description confuses me because it says you're limited to one ride on Lightning Rod.

Those "one ride per" rides that are listed are only specifically for the version of Timesaver that gives you ten rides in total. The unlimited has always been fully unlimited every single time I've visited.

As mentioned, the limits are for the regular, 10 use Timesaver not the unlimited version.

 

Haven't looked at the cards recently, but at first there were 2 special spots. You could use both on LR instead of one on each.

 

The unlimited version doesn't have any way to track uses.

There are now 3 "special spots" as Dragonflier is also one of those rides. However, I was told you could use those 3 spots however you wanted. If you want 3 Lightning Rod rides, you can do that. Or 2 Firechaser and 1 Dragonflier. It doesn't matter in what combination you use them.

 

That being said, I rode LR, FCE and Dragonflier once each and still had 2 of my 3 spots available. No one was stationed in either the FCE or Dragonflier lines, so I had bonus punches!

I hope Dollywood staff visits or has visited Efteling in The Netherlands in regard to dark rides. I was watching a park tour and oh my what good dark rides they have! Symbolica is so cool but cost 35 million dollars! I bet Dolly would love that park as it is themed to fairy tale like scenarios. She said she loved fairy tales growing up!

Is Dollywood currently doing the "Arrive after 3pm - Next day free" deal? I might be visiting Dollywood sometime during Nov 20-23. I checked the Dollywood website, but I didn't see any mention of that deal so maybe it's not offered at this time of year?

 

EDIT: I just noticed Dollywood is only open from 2-9 on Nov 20-22 so I doubt the "After 3" deal would be offered. However, Dollywood is open 11-9 on Nov 23 and 24.

I believe they stopped offering that altogether either this season or the previous season.
