Top 4 Ways to Save Money on Your Dollywood Vacation

  • June 28, 2023

When planning your vacation to Dollywood, there are several great ways that you can save money on your trip! Your family can enjoy all of the fantastic live shows, thrilling roller coasters, and other unique attractions at the popular Tennessee theme park without spending a fortune! Here are the top 4 ways to save money on your Dollywood vacation:

1. Take the Trolley to the Park

The trolleys depart from Patriot Park, which is situated practically right around the corner from our hotel, and you can park there all day for free! The service begins 30 minutes before Dollywood opens and runs continuously throughout the day (arrivals every 15 minutes), returning everyone back to Patriot Park after Dollywood closes. While the fare is $2.50 each way per person, you can purchase an all-day pass for just $3.00 per person! Since it costs well over $20 to park your car at the theme park, consider getting dropped off for much less!

2. Purchase Multi-Day Tickets

Another top way to save money on your Dollywood vacation is to purchase multi-day tickets to Dollywood! There is so much to see and do in the park that you’ll likely want to spend at least one extra day enjoying all of the spectacular attractions! The great news is that a 2-day ticket costs just a bit more than a one-day ticket, and a 3-day ticket is even a smaller upgrade from the 2-day ticket! This means you can spend 3 full days enjoying the Dollywood Express Train Ride, Lightning Rod roller coaster, and dozens of other exciting activities in the park!

3. Consider the Daily Refill Souvenir Mug

While the cost of individual drinks at the park can quickly add up, Dollywood offers a Daily Refill Mug where you can get as many drinks as you want (on the day of redemption) for one price! If you decide to go for the 2 or 3-day ticket option, be sure to bring the mug back with you, as you can still take advantage of reduced drink prices until the end of the current operating season!

4. Stay At Our Pigeon Forge Hotel
