Dollywood Opening Day
Dollywood has “BIG” things planned for 2023! The Pigeon Forge, Tennessee park is gearing up for a season that includes the debut of Big Bear Mountain, the longest roller coaster in the park’s history, a new celebration of one of Dolly’s most iconic songs, as well as 15 additional park operating days throughout the year. With so much big fun in 2023, a Dollywood season pass should be on everyone’s wish list.
Dollywood opens for the 2023 season on March 10 for passholders and March 11 to the general public.
