PIGEON FORGE – Based on daily changes in the status of the coronavirus pandemic and guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control, the planned opening of Dollywood was delayed and the operation of Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa was suspended as of Tuesday, March 24. Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabins remains open at this time.

“The coronavirus crisis is unprecedented, and based on the ever-changing developments, we are constantly re-evaluating our options and hoping to open in May,” Craig Ross, Dollywood President said.

Ross continued, “We are looking daily at all of our options to present an exciting and entertaining 2020 season that is a great experience for our guests, but our first priority is the safety of our hosts and guests.” 

Dollywood will continue to watch the conditions within the region, consult with medical experts and follow CDC guidelines to determine the re-opening date for the parks and resort. Additional changes will be communicated as they occur.

Guests with resort reservations or tickets for the period of temporary closure may contact (800) DOLLYWOOD for rescheduling information.
