Dollywood officials remove reservation requirement for park visits

After nearly a month of operating in this ever-changing environment, Dollywood officials have made the decision to no longer require guests to make reservations prior to their visit.


“With the favorable feedback from our guests and the confidence our management team has in being able to continue to provide a satisfying experience for our guests, we are going to make it simpler and easier to visit the park without prior planning by removing the current reservation requirement,” said Craig Ross, president of The Dollywood Company. “Guests are sharing their praise for the extensive efforts we are making during this pandemic. They are telling us they enjoy the shorter wait times, and that they find it easy to spend their day with us.”

In addition, one-day tickets and multi-day tickets are now valid for a five-day window following the original selected date. This means that if a guest’s plan changes at the last minute, or if the weather is less than favorable, they can visit at another time during the ticket window.

In order to maintain social distancing, passholder reservations are still required at Dollywood’s Splash Country water park.
