Dollywood Like A Local In 2023 With a Silver Season Pass


Dollywood Like A Local In 2023 With A Silver Season PassTo Dollywood like a local in 2023, you’ll need a season pass! There are multiple amazing festivals throughout the year you won’t want to miss and a season pass allows you to see them all, as many times as you want, for a much lower price than if you were to purchase a daily ticket on each visit. 

Be sure to comment on this post and to enter on Facebook and Instagram for our Two Silver Season Passes giveaway! {Live on March 7th}

The most affordable pass option for families is the Silver Season pass. A Silver Pass gives you access to all of the Dollywood festivals, including everyone’s favorite Smoky Mountain Christmas, a $5 discount on daily tickets, and two Bring-a-Friend free tickets to use during the 2023 season. There was a bit of confusion during the launch of the 2023 season passes, but we’re here to clear it up! The adult Silver pass and Bring-a-Friend tickets do have a few blackout dates during peak seasons, but the Child pass does not have any blackout dates. This makes the Silver pass by far the most economical option for local families who want to visit Dollywood. And don’t forget, if you have a child in Pre-K they automatically qualify for a FREE 2023 season pass so be sure to register for one!

One of the most exciting things coming to Dollywood in 2023 is the new HeartSong Lodge & Resort. If you’re a local looking for a staycation, then this resort is going to be the perfect place to take your family! It will open in Fall 2023 and boast rooms with balconies and space for up to six people, an onsite restaurant, pool, hot tub, plenty of family activities with Camp DW and more. 

If you have a large group of people wanting to go to Dollywood, then staying onsite at a resort makes the most logistical and economical sense for a few reasons:

  • Resort guests have Priority Park Access
  • Each member of your family gets a complimentary TimeSaver Pass
  • Complimentary Trolley transportation 
  • Free package delivery to the resort from the Park shops
  • Saturday Early Park Entry for Exclusive Ride Time

When you add up the costs of all of these perks per person for an entire family, it’s almost a no-brainer to stay at the resort so that you can get them for free with your stay. If you’re looking for a staycation before HeartSong Lodge & Resort opens in the fall, DreamMore is always an option and you get all of the same perks!

Dollywood creates a one-of-a-kind getaway for your family whether you’re visiting for one day or one week. Will you be checking out the new resort for a staycation in 2023? Have you already gotten your season pass so you can Dollywood like a local? 

Let us know your Dollywood questions in the comments below. We hope to see you at the park this year!



  1. We’re new to the area and have found the Knoxvill Moms emails extremely helpful. I’m grateful to have stumbled upon you page.
    I got rid of my Facebook and Instagram accounts in 2020, so I can’t enter there. 🙂

  2. What an amazing gift to give! We love Dollywood and Knoxville Moms! I always go here first to find what’s going on and activities for my family to do. Thank you!!

  3. I loved Dollywood as a child! Thank you for this chance to win! My 3 year old has been 2 times- once as a little baby and then once a little after 2 but was a bit scared to ride most of the rides, I bet she’d love it now!!!
