1. Question: What is a vacation package?
Answer: A vacation package is a local company that provides Pigeon Forge area accommodations, attractions, theaters and meals. Each vacation package provider is contracted individually with accommodations, attractions, theaters and restaurants, therefore; each provider may have different suppliers. Each package is individually priced and may not include all of the above listed items.
2. Question: Can I buy just tickets?
Answer: Yes, however not all attractions and theaters will allow discount ticket sales without incorporating it into a vacation package that includes lodging from a vacation package provider.
3. Question: Is this timeshare? Or timeshare related?
Answer: NO, vacation packages are not timeshare related and no tours are required to purchase a vacation package.
4. Question: What is double occupancy?
Answer: Double occupancy is based on 2 adults staying in one room. If a package states “per person double occupancy” then the first 2 adults in that room pay the initial per person rate. Additional person/s staying in the same room would be at a lesser rate. Call each individual provider to find out more information on a specific package.
5. Question: Can packages listed on the website be changed?
Answer: Yes, vacation packages can be altered but based on your changes the pricing is subject to increase. Also check with each provider for customized vacation packages.

Answer: Payment policies vary based on providers. Provider may require full payment prior to arrival while other may only require a deposit; however, you must pay the vacation package provider directly. Contact each provider for more details. Most providers accept credit cards by phone, cashier checks and/or money orders by mail if enough advance notice is given.
7. Question: How do I get my tickets?

Answer: Some providers need at least 2 weeks notice in order to book a vacation package while others accept orders up to 3 days prior to arrival date. We recommend that you book as soon as possible due to the limitations on show seating and high volumes during peak times.
