Top 4 Benefits of Purchasing a Season Pass to Dollywood

It is almost time for Dollywood to open their gates for another season of fun! If you plan at least two trips to Dollywood, it can be beneficial to purchase a season pass that allows you unlimited access to the theme park for an entire calendar year. When you combine the excellent value of this pass with the affordable rates at the Grand Smokies Resort Lodge, you can easily spend several weekends each year in Pigeon Forge! Here are the top 4 benefits of purchasing a season pass to Dollywood:

1. Best Ticket Value

A season pass to Dollywood is the best ticket value to Tennessee’s legendary theme park! You can purchase multiple day tickets that may be slightly cheaper than the season pass. However, the catch is that these tickets are only valid for up to 5 days after their first use! You never have to worry about time restrictions when purchasing a season pass and you can have unlimited access to the park all year long! This means that you can attend all of the Dollywood’s popular festivals, including the Barbeque & Bluegrass festival, Rock the Smokies, Festival of Nations, Harvest Festival and the Smoky Mountain Christmas!

2. Exclusive Passholder PerksDollywood mill

Another major benefit of purchasing a Dollywood season pass is the access to exclusive passholder perks! This includes exclusive ride times in the park! This means you can access some of the top roller coasters and attractions with little to no wait! There are also special passholder only offers and events throughout the year that are not available to the general public. If you upgrade your season pass to a Gold Super pass, you can enjoy even more awesome perks! That includes admission to Dollywood’s Splash Country, complimentary parking and discounts off of food and merchandise!

3. Convenient Payment Plan

One of the awesome things about buying a season pass to Dollywood is that you don’t even need to make your entire payment at once! The park offers a convenient payment plan. Instead, you just have to make a monthly payment which makes it much easier on your budget. This is especially helpful if you are purchasing season passes for your entire family! Just remember to hold on to your season pass photo because the park does charge a replacement fee.

Season passholders can take advantage of early entry to Dollywood on every Saturday when the park opens one hour early! There will be a select ride available each Saturday, so stay updated on the early entry at Dollywood for the most recent information. Another advantage of getting into the park early is that you are literally steps ahead of the hundreds of guests arriving to the turnstiles at the official park opening! This is the perfect opportunity to get in line for some of the most popular attractions in the park, such as the Mystery Mine, Wild Eagle or Lighting Rod!
