Travel Without Limits



Dolly Parton is a true living legend. Instead of using her millions to clone her dogs or launch herself into space, she returned to her home state of Tennessee and created a tourist attraction that would employ thousands of people, and attract millions of visitors each year. Best of all, Dollywood goes above and beyond to ensure everyone – including people with disabiliti­es – gets to thoroughly enjoy their visit.

Your first stop should be to visit the Theme Park's Ride

Accessibil­ity Center, where Hosts can talk you through each Dollywood experience and help you determine whether it's suitable for your needs. They can provide you with a Ride Accessibil­ity Pass, which is like a boarding pass, guiding you and your companion(s) to the rides that suit your needs. Show this to the Host at each ride, and they will help with queuing, accessible entry, and so forth.

The rugged Tennessee terrain that Dolly sings about so often can be a little tricky to navigate, which is why Dollywood provides Electronic Convenienc­e Vehicles (ECVs) and wheelchair­s for rental. They also recommend that visitors who are blind or have low vision bring a companion who can ensure they move around safely.

For guests who are d/Deaf or hearing impaired, a Sign Language Interprete­r can be arranged with advanced notice, and there are Assistive Listening Systems in each theatre. Scripts for regular shows are also available.

Theme parks can be overwhelmi­ng, so Dollywood has a Calming Room with sensory items and a private gated Calming Area for guests who might need a quiet break. A Host at the Ride Accessibil­ity Center can guide you to these spots.
