Dollywood DreamMore Resort
ANNOUNCEMENT UPDATE: Dollywood is making 30 big announcements throughout 2015…to see what has been announced so far, click here!
The Dollywood DreamMore Resort is set to open in the summer of 2015 as a 230,000-square-foot resort featuring 307 rooms with a variety of accommodations including a 2,200-square-foot Dolly’s Suite Dreams celebrity suite. One of the neat features of Dollywood’s hotel is reunion suites which link adjoining rooms to create extended, connected family space. There will be an indoor pool, a 4,000 sqft outdoor pool complex, a spa and a full-service farmhouse-style restaurant that features a wraparound veranda with views of the pool and surrounding mountains. An amphitheater is planned as well as outdoor areas complete with fire pits, swings and hammocks. Dolly Parton has wanted to open a hotel or resort since she first opened Dollywood in 1986. While they have had cabin rentals available about 2 miles away from the park, they have wanted to open a resort much closer to the theme park to offer a whole new range of accommodations and package options.

Details About Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort Hotel
The new resort will be designed especially for families with some rooms accommodating six people. The resort will also feature many “front porch” viewing areas of the Smoky Mountains as well as a fishing pond for children! Their media release states:
“Featuring a variety of accommodations, the resort celebrates the iconic Southern gathering spot, beckoning to a time when families and friends sipped iced tea, enjoyed homemade ice cream and socialized. Centered on the rich traditions of storytelling, family and togetherness, the resort will feature many special touches including family sanctuaries like fire pits, swings and hammocks plus story spots scattered throughout the grounds.”
As guests enter the lobby, they will be greeted with a glass of lemonade in the summer and a cup of hot chocolate during winter months.

The new DreamMore Resort will be located adjacent to Dollywood’s Splash Country. They have 100 acres available to develop on and the new resort is just going to use around 20 acres, which means they have a lot more expansion room to work with in the future. Dolly says it will have “Southern flair” while being “classy”. A resort such as this is something that numerous visitors have asked about for years as they search for vacation packages and lodging near Dollywood.
