Dollywood DreamMore Resort Accepting Reservations for 2015
Singer-songwriter and actress Dolly Parton and the Dollywood Company's latest creation, the Dollywood DreamMore Resort, isn't scheduled to open until this summer, however, guests no longer have to wait to make reservations.
According to a press release published on Tuesday, guests can now book travel dates starting on Aug. 18 by going online or calling.
Located within the Great Smoky Mountains alongside Dollywood Theme Park and Dollywood's Splash Country in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, the 100-acre resort boasts more than 300 guest rooms and suites designed to accommodate families.
"I've been dreaming about this resort since the very day we actually opened Dollywood," said Parton last May via WBIR.com. "One of the things I'm proudest of is we're going to have reunion suites, where all of the doors are opened in between so you can bring your whole family and everybody can just run back and forth into your room or you can slam it in their face if you want to."
The resort features indoor and outdoor pools, an on-site restaurant, a spa, salon and fitness center, among other amenities.
"Our goal is to bring new visitors to the beautiful Smokies and have Dollywood's DreamMore Resort guests experience special privileges that aren’t available anywhere else," said Dollywood DreamMore Resort general manager Kevin Osborn in a statement. "With rooms starting at $179, these benefits give families more of what they want in a Dollywood vacation—more play, more time and more value."
The project, which is "expected to bring more than $300 million in future developments," per WBIR.com, has come a long way since construction began two years ago, courtesy of The Dollywood Company on Instagram:
The resort also unveiled various privileges that will be offered exclusively to resort guests.
The highlights include bypassing lines for rides at Dollywood parks (complimentary TimeSaver Pass) and early Saturday morning entry.
Complimentary shuttles between the resort and the parks, a guest-only entrance at the parks and a best-price guarantee are other notable benefits available to resort guests. The best-price guarantee means that resort guests will receive the lowest online price for future rooms and park tickets.
As for what's on the horizon, Dollywood DreamMore Resort plans to announce a grand opening date sometime this spring.
