Online PR News – 30-January-2015 – USA – On December 12, 2014, Visit My Smokies, the industry leader in Smoky Mountain vacation information, revealed a few major changes coming in the near future for the beloved Pigeon Forge amusement park, Dollywood. As part of the party’s 30th anniversary, officials announced that they would be spending their off season creating new ways to enhance guests’ experience.

“Dollywood is by far one of the most popular attraction in Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains,” said a spokesperson for Visit My Smokies. “We see families come from all across the country to spend the day at the park. That is why we are excited to see all the new additions and changes they are making because we know guests will love them for years to come.”

According to officials with the Pigeon Forge amusement park, the highlight of the new additions will be the opening of the brand-new DreamMore Resort that is located adjacent to Dollywood. Housing 307 individual guest rooms, the new Smoky Mountain resort is set to open Summer 2015.

In addition to the new resort, Dollywood also plans on creating a better guest experience overall. This includes releasing plans to change the park’s parking infrastructure with a more visitor-friendly design.

With an estimated cost of $5.5 million, the new parking lot will be larger and easier to navigate than what guests are used to now. Dollywood staff also plans to incorporate more trams to help transport guests from their car to the front gate of the Pigeon Forge amusement park.

Rounding out the list of additions for Dollywood’s 30th anniversary is the introduction of a brand new event set to open this fall. On Sept. 5, curtains will open for Dollywood’s Rock the Smokies show that showcases contemporary Christian music on stages located throughout the park. The event will last throughout Labor Day weekend.

Opened in 1986, Dollywood is considered one of the most family-friendly attractions in the Smoky Mountains. Not only does the park pay tribute to its namesake, country music superstar Dolly Parton, but it also honors the rich history and culture found in the Appalachian community.
