My husband and i have been to pigeon forge for our honeymoon and our 1st anniversary. We decided to come down for our 2nd anniversary this july and go to dollywood. It was our first visit to dollywood and we had a great time. We really enjoyed the different shows we attended including the kingdom heirs quartet. They had a young man who is 15 years old playing the piano and he was great along with the quartet. It was just great! We both needed to use the powerwheel chair's to get around such a big place and they we fantastic for transportation around the park. The staff we talked with were all great too! Thanks for making our 1st trip to dollywood so nice!
