Best Days to Visit

  • Depending on the time of year, some days at Dollywood can be less crowded than others. For instance, in the spring, Thursdays are less crowded. In the summer, try for Wednesday or Thursday. In the fall, you might consider weekdays. During the Christmas season, weekdays are your best bet. Our operating days and hours vary; please check our Operating Calendar to confirm the schedule.


  • Refer to the Entertainment Schedule and Park Map upon arrival or online (when available) before you arrive. Then, identify any shows that you wish to see, locate the appropriate theatre, and plan your day accordingly. Theatre seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so planning ahead can be helpful. Tickets are not required for Dollywood shows (with the exception of special concerts). However, our Q2Q line management system is offered for an additional fee which can help you save time by avoiding long lines.
