1. Christmas at Dollywood
Dollywood is an amazing experience no matter what time of the year, with amazing theme park rides, great food, and regional arts and crafts, Dollywood is a one of a kind experience. During Christmas, Dollywood becomes alive with holiday cheer, with 4 million twinkling lights, elaborate decorations and delicious holiday themed menus that will make your visit a memorable one. When you aren’t enjoying the decorations and the food, there are many holiday activities and performances that you will want to take part in during your visit.
Rudolph and his friends, Clarice, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster and Yukon Cornelius arejust a few of your favorite Christmas friends that you can see during your trip to Dollywood this Christmas. You can play games and visit with these characters at Rudolph’s Holly Jolly Junction, a magical area full of festive fun.
When you are finished visiting with Rudolph and friends, go and check out the two Christmas performances only featured at Dollywood. The first is Dollywood’s A Christmas Carol which is a never before seen adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic. What makes this performance special is the cutting-edge holographic technology that brings Dolly Parton herself to the stage for each performance in the very special role of the Ghost of Christmas past. If you are looking to hear beautiful renditions of your holiday carols than Christmas in the Smokies is the show for you. This Dollywood musical Christmas tradition features a 12-member cast performing hometown holiday favorites that celebrate the joy of the season.
