I am glad we got to give the kids the experience of a real amusement park, and I am sure we will go back again in 5 to 10 years. LOL! Everyone loved the cars. I think we went on seven times. There were no lines anywhere. I think the longest we waited was 6 minutes.
We saw two shows and spent most of our time in the Country Fair section. Dad and Tim went on some of the scary rides and obstacle course, but the rest of us were happy to go on the kiddie rides (both Mom and Grandma included).
Everyone enjoyed a ride on the coal steam engine, too. It was a nice ride through part of the Smoky Mountains. I will say that the staff at Dollywood was very friendly. They made everything easy, from tram rides to and from the parking lot to the nice changing rooms.
Here is some of the tired crew in their new glamorous hats and really big lollipops. We just love dress up around here and the hats were priced just right for a souvenir.
