While some vacation destinations don’t offer much for toddlers, that certainly isn’t the case in Pigeon Forge, TN! Our Smoky Mountain city is overflowing with fun attractions that your little ones are sure to love. Best of all, Pigeon Forge’s toddler-friendly attractions also appeal to guests of all ages, so older kids and adults can join in the fun. To help you make the most of your next getaway, we have put together a guide to four of the best Pigeon Forge attractions for toddlers.
1. Titanic Museum Attraction
Although the historical significance of the RMS Titanic may be lost on your toddler, he will still have a blast at the Titanic Museum Attraction. What makes this attraction so appealing to young children is that the entire building is shaped like a giant ship! Little kids love “boarding” the ship and pretending to be passengers on the high seas. The Titanic Museum also boasts an excellent Tot Titanic area where toddlers can talk to an interactive polar bear, play games, and even “steer” the ship.

Dollywood is another one of the best Pigeon Forge attractions for toddlers! This hugely popular theme park offers a number of shows and rides designed specifically with young children in mind. At The Little Engine Playhouse, kids can watch musical adaptations of classic story books with original songs composed by Dolly Parton herself. If your toddler is looking for some pint-sized thrills, she can enjoy some of the park’s kiddie rides, such as the Amazing Flying Elephants, Lil’ Pilots Playground, Village Carousel, and Piggy Parade. The Dollywood Express, the theme park’s old fashioned steam engine, is also a big hit with kids of all ages.

3. Dixie Stampede
No vacation in Pigeon Forge is complete without seeing one of the city’s signature dinner shows. If you’re traveling with toddlers, we suggest heading to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede. Young kids will love watching the show’s beautiful horses as they gallop around the stadium and perform incredible tricks. Also, the food at Dixie Stampede is served without silverware, so kids can eat with their preferred utensils: their hands!
If your kids want to get an up close view of the Dixie Stampede horses, you can stop by the front of the theater before the show. There is no charge for visiting the stables, so your children can enjoy seeing the horses even if you don’t end up buying tickets for the dinner show.

4. The Island in Pigeon Forge
While some toddlers can get antsy during shopping trips, your kids definitely won’t complain when you decide to check out the stores at The Island in Pigeon Forge! In the center of The Island, you will find a large show fountain with geysers that “dance” to popular songs. Toddlers love to sit in the rocking chairs surrounding the fountain and watch the mesmerizing display. The Island is also home to a number of great kiddie rides and a giant Ferris wheel that captivates children.
