Vacation Day #11

Today we finally got to head to Dollywood. It's a theme park owned by Dolly Parton...
We were here when Jeremiah was 1 year old so only 18 years ago. I didn't remember anything about it other than one theater. Mom loves Dolly Parton and was so excited about coming to the park again. We got to go through this one museum type display of all her beautiful dresses and awards. It was really neat.
Just one section of the awards she has won. Amazing! She is very talented for sure. Then we saw this one theater was getting ready for a show so decided to see what it was about...
It was a time travel through music show. From the 50's through the 70's. It was so well done I would honestly have paid the full ticket price just to watch this show. I was very impressed by how they made all these different songs into a full length story and it was really Broadway quality. Jeremiah really enjoyed it a lot. I even shed a tear. What a moving story and show. Amazing. We got to watch another movie about Dolly's life. Then we watched another performance that featured several members of Dolly's family like cousins and nieces. They sang beautiful music and it was really neat because there was a movie screen behind them with Dolly Parton and it was almost like it was live because she sang with them and watched them and clapped along. It was very well done.
 
It was a very nice day but we are very glad we bought the 3 day park pass because we hardly did anything according to the park map.

  3. Oooh Dollywood - that's one of my dream places to visit! I'm glad everything is so well done there, but Dolly would never do anything that wasn't first class! Thanks for sharing the experience!

  4. The show sounds great. I have heard that Dolly is very generous to her extended family and the people in the area she grew up in.
