The Christmas season at Dollywood is one of the most heart-warming and impressive holiday events that I’ve ever attended. Even during my first visit to Dollywood during my kids spring break many years ago, people were raving about the holidays at Dollywood. Friends would visit and send photos of the park decked out with millions of lights and I knew that we needed to visit.
We finally were able to visit for the 2017 season and I can honestly say that Dollywood does not let you down.
In addition to the four million lights, there are holiday shows, live entertainment, special foods and surprises for the whole family.
You can meet Rudolph, Yukon Cornelius and Bumbles while enjoying reindeer games.
Back in the Country Fair section, you can meet Santa and the elves as they get ready for Christmas in Santa Land.
But when the sun sets, the real magic begins. Dollywood lights up with over 4 million Christmas lights. It truly is a sight to behold and the entire park is decorated.
Each area has a special theme and I was charmed by the nostalgic 1950s feel of Jukebox Junction.
The heart of the park, which I consider River Town Junction and Craftsmen’s Valley are a treat to just hang out. The lights in Rivertown are a festive red, green and blue.
The lights of Craftsmen’s Valley slowly transition to a warm off-white as the water flume for the grist mill passes overhead.
It can be overwhelming to think about the lights at Dollywood, especially when you get an up-lcose look and you realize that each bulb has been perfectly placed.
The village area (with the Dollywood Express and the carousel) and the Country Fair section are full of dazzling lights, as well.
The Adventures in Imagination section, where the Chasing Rainbows museum is located, shows off Dolly’s more modern Christmas will some beautiful butterfly decorations. It’s also a great place to catch the Parade of Many Colors.
Showstreet, near the entrance is decked out as well, with a surprise from Rudolph as you exit every evening…snow!
As always spend a few moments in the Emporium checking out all of the holiday merchandise. You might find a few things for yourself or the loved ones back home.
