It's very hit and miss that time of year.. a few years ago we had a very pretty weekend around Thanksgiving.. I can't remember if it was the weekend before or the weekend of.. but anyways, it was a record breaking day at the park! We are talking over 35000 guest.. the week was pretty to so it was fairly busy during the week even

During that time of year they focus on the evening so most of the weeks hours are afternoon evening only unless it's the week of a holiday and the know folks will be off.. if you want long hours you have to visit on weekend

I'd reschedule for the week of the 20th.

1.) The park opens earlier which means more ride time!!

2.) The Christmas event will already be going on, so you'll still get to enjoy that.

3.) Better weather??

4.) If it's busy you can always buy their unlimited line skip program, and you'll be set!!

As for 1 or 2 days?? That's entirely up to you. We did 2 days at the park and it was MORE than enough. If I had to do our trip all over again, I would just have done 1 day. (And I bet I'm in the minority on this.)

Either way, you're going to love the park. It's beautiful, it has awesome shows, amazing food, great rides, and a one of a kind atmosphere.

Best of luck on the trip!! Can't wait for a TR!

Does DW serve beer anywhere or are there places nearby to get a beer?

I don't think that Dollywood allows you to partake in the devils nectar while at the park.

However, I think I saw a liquor store some where near the park? Maybe?? Maybe not. Wasn't really looking.

They don't sell any beer or liquor at Dollywood (in the park). There are however plenty of restaurants in Pigeon Forge that do. There are even Moonshine tasting places in the area.

Dollywood doesn't allow alcohol. But the Island which is honestly 5-10 mins from the park has bars on every corner and Ole Smoky Moonshine, along with the bars on the strip. Gatlinburg is the same, with another Ole Smoky, Sugarland's, and there's another one I can't think of. Gatlinburg is where your "bars" are. Moonshine holler has a great atmosphere as well even if you don't drink. There's always live music in the afternoon through the night.

I went to Christmas In The Smokies last year the week between Christmas and New Years, it was insanely packed lol. I'd recommend 1st week of December. That is when I planned my trip. I normally judge expected crowd levels by hotel prices, and I'm staying at my 2nd favorite Wyndham property in Pigeon Forge for $32 each night lol. If you haven't been to the festival in a few years, It's A Wonderful Life was fantastic last year, as was Christmas In The Smokies
