Hitting Gold at Dollywood

We are so grateful to our dear friends at Dollywood Parks & Resorts that hosted some of our team for a few days, but know that we 100% recommend that you go take part in one of the most incredible experiences you'll ever have!


In January, I was able to attend an event with other Mom Collectives from across the region at the DreamMore Resort in Pigeon Forge, TN. The resort is everything you could ever want for a family getaway (or a girlfriends’ trip, or a romantic getaway….I digress!). At Dollywood Parks & Resorts, there is the Dollywood Theme Park, Dollywood Splash Country Water Park, Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, and Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabins. In addition, there are cousin companies and dinner shows all there in the Smoky Mountains. I’m so thankful that Dollywood hosted us, so we can share an inside look at all the parks and resorts have to offer!

I spent 3 amazing days at the Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort & Spa as part of an event for Dayton Mom Collective. If you haven’t been, it’s a MUST go to! The property is beyond beautiful, and the environment is all about family!! Also, they have lifeguards… at their indoor pool. It’s amazing.

I was able to meet Mary Kellogg who (along with her husband, John Joslyn) owns the Titanic Museums in both Branson, MO and Pigeon Forge, TN. It was so neat spending time with her and hearing how the museums came to be! We also got to take an amazing tour with Pink Jeep Tours and go off road. Read the full review on these excursions from Danielle Breitenstein in Go for Gold at Dollywood!

Im so thankful for this opportunity, the new people I was able to meet and seeing what amazing things there are in an area our family LOVES to visit. I’m so thankful also that my forever best friend, Cindy Davis, came with me because I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have made it there without her in that snowstorm!

dollywoodWe laughed and spent time finding out all that Dollywood had to offer. Did you know they have Gold Passes similar to Kings Island (only way better, in my opinion)? They also offer a Preschool Pass for FREE (this 2022 season for children born in 2017/2018)!

Gold Passes

They have updated their Gold cards, which is super nice. The cost is not much more than KI, and they give you 4 bring-a-friend tickets per Gold pass… which is huge. So for our family, it would be 24 free bring-a-friends.

Honestly if I had known they had passes, we would have gotten them last year and spent most of the days at the park and water park. It’s soooo expensive here without passes (we spent $2,000 between food and fun last Summer with just our oldest)! It would have allowed us fun without the high prices.

Everyone in the family needs a Gold Pass to take advantage of the all-new Golden Hours and Events during the 2022 season at Dollywood. Gold Passes are more affordable than ever before!! Plus, you get FREE general parking, discounts on food and merchandise, 4 flexible bring-a-friend tickets, and access to special events. Golden Hours allow Gold Passholders to use the TimeSaver ride entrance the first operating hour each day. With Gold, you also get a Free One-Day Unlimited Refills Souvenir Mug per Passholder (ends 2/13/22).

Head over to our Instagram page where we’re giving away FOUR (4) 2022 Dollywood Gold Season Passes (valued at approx. $940)!
