Find Your Way to DollywoodLocated southeast of Knoxville, Dollywood is easy to find. Follow the I-40 and take Exit 407, and then follow Tennessee Highway 66 South, which then becomes US 441. Once you get to Pigeon Forge, just follow the signs to Dollywood.Outside FoodFor safety reasons, no outside food is allowed in Dollywood. If you have specific dietary requirements that the park restaurants can't address, please discuss exceptions to this rule beforehand with the park staff. If you prefer to eat outside of the park, just make sure you get your hand stamped when exiting – you can come back the same day without having to pay admission again.Rain ChecksIf inclement weather cuts your visit short, just ask for a rain check when exiting and come back when the weather has improved. A cabin rental near Dollywood makes this very easy – just head back home and enjoy a leisurely afternoon roasting marshmallows on the fire and relaxing.
