As the 14-time Golden Ticket winner of Best Theme Park Christmas event, Dollywood Smoky Mountain Christmas sparkles in the most spectacular way for the holiday season. While the iconic cinnamon bread tastes even better during the holiday season, the blend of traditional holiday food fare and the sparkling lights makes for picture perfect memories that will last long after the holiday season fades from view. Whether this year is the first visit or a returning trip, the 2022 display is captivating guests in the best way.

Over the years, guests have fallen in love with Dollywood. While the thrill rides bring excitement, it is the nod to family-friendly entertainment that adds a welcoming atmosphere that guests appreciate. Although the theme park’s namesake might not be taking the stage, her influence can be felt all around.

For the 2022 Dollywood Smoky Mountain Christmas, the theme park has strung over 6 million lights. From the lighted trees to eight different light zones, the night sky shimmers brightly. Even though many theme parks have holiday events, this experience feels like a classic, downhome holiday celebration. Even though the display might be over the top, it is welcoming, warm, and classic.

Whether guests stroll throughout the park or take the Dollywood Express for a broader view, the sights make even an adult feel like a kid again. That simple wonder is essential to the holiday season. It is easy to make a Christmas wish and believe that the magic will make it come true.

With all the sights leading guests from one stop till another, many guests will want a treat or two to enjoy along the way. While there is traditional holiday meal fare, it is the sweet treats that satisfy in the tastiest way.

Some highlights include eggnog cupcakes and gingerbread-dusted funnel cake. This simple twist incorporates seasonal flavors that are approachable for a wide array of guests. It is a great example how Dollywood blends familiar and innovation on the plate.

Smoky Mountain Christmas presented by Humana runs now through January 1, 2023. More information on ticket prices, schedules, and activities can be found on the theme park’s website.
