3 Advantages of Vacationing at Our Condos Close to Dollywood

Dollywood is one of the very best theme parks in the entire country! Owned and operated by country music legend Dolly Parton, this awesome attraction features thrilling rides, world class shows, and some of the tastiest food you can find. When you stay at the Cherokee Lodge, you will be just five minutes away from this award winning theme park. Read on to learn about three of the top advantages of vacationing at our condos close to Dollywood:

1. Walking Distance to Patriot Park and the Dollywood TrolleyThe Patriot Park sign at the Pigeon Forge Trolley Station.

Parking at Dollywood can be a bit expensive, with a $12 fee for most vehicles and an $18 charge for oversized vehicles. However, guests at the Cherokee Lodge can make their way to the theme park without spending a cent on parking!

Our condo complex is located right across the street from the Patriot Park Trolley Station. From here, you can catch the Dollywood Trolley, a short bus ride that takes you straight to the theme park. The best part is that this trolley ride only costs 50 cents per passenger and is free for babies and toddlers. The Dollywood Trolley starts running thirty minutes before the theme park opens and makes stops at Patriot Park every 15 minutes. There is also a convenient Dolly’s Splash Country Trolley that makes trips to the water park every twenty minutes.

Not only does taking the trolley let you save money on parking, but it also lets you avoid any traffic that you may encounter on your way to the theme park. Most vacations require more than enough time in the car, so it can be nice to sit back and let someone else drive for a while!

There are so many things to see and do at Dollywood that many vacationers want to come back to the theme park a few times during their getaway in Pigeon Forge. When you stay at our condos close to Dollywood, making multiple trips to the park is very convenient because you will be just minutes away from all the excitement.

Dollywood offers a number of great options for guests who plan on returning to the park throughout their trip. Typically, Dollywood has a special promotion where anyone who arrives at the park after 3 p.m. can come back the next day for free. Guests can also purchase a “3 Days, 2 Parks” pass, which is good for three days at Dollywood and/or Dolly’s Splash Country.

If you are a Dollywood superfan, we recommend buying their Season Pass. It’s cheaper than the cost of two daily admissions, and you can use it throughout the year. Whether you’re in town to celebrate Christmas or the 4th of July, a trip to Dollywood will always be waiting for you.
