Ask anyone who has visited Dollywood before, and they’ll tell you this place is different. It’s not a difference that you can touch or see. It’s a difference you can feel. When you’re at Dollywood, time slows down a bit and your troubles don’t seem so troublesome. You could name a million things that make Dollywood so special, but we think it boils down to the simple things like the feeling you get when you’re with the ones you care about most, or the warm, inviting smiles of the Dollywood Hosts who treat you more like family than a guest.
