On a recent vacation to Dollywood, my family and I made reservations to stay at Dreammore Resort. Since we booked our hotel room at Dreammore, we received some great perks at the Dollywood Theme Park.

Where is Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort and Spa located?
Dollywood is located just 35 miles east of Knoxville, TN in Pigeon Forge. This region of the state draws in lots of tourists annually as the Great Smoky Mountains provide amazing scenery.
Gatlinburg and other family friendly destinations are all within a short drive. Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort is about a ten minute drive from the theme park.
Perks of Dreammore Reservations
You can easily create a reservation for Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort directly on their website. I highly recommend checking out this gorgeous resort, especially if you have kids.
If you make reservations to stay at Dreammore, you will receive many different perks that will help make your Dollywood vacation run so smoothly.
One of the biggest advantages to having reservations at Dreammore is that you are able to use the Dollywood shuttle busses for free! This is a huge bonus for anyone traveling with small kids.
If you choose to drive to Dollywood Theme Park, you would have to fiddle with car seats, drive to the Dollywood parking lot, find a spot for your vehicle, and then board a tram to take you to the park gates.
If you choose to take the Dollywood shuttle, you can easily board the bus just outside the Dreammore Resort’s lobby.
During the ten minute drive to the park, the friendly bus drivers share information with you. There are also televisions on the bus that show videos of Dollywood and all the exciting things it has to offer.
If you take the Dollywood shuttle from the resort, the bus will drop you off at a special side entrance to the theme park.
This means you get to bypass any lines that have formed at the main gates and walk right into Dollywood’s VIP entrance.
Free TimeSaver Passes
If you book a reservation at Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort, you also receive TimeSaver passes for free! On my most recent visit, each member of my family was given a pass that allowed us to use the TimeSaver lines at the park up to ten times.
At check in, they even gave lanyards to hold the timesaver passes easily around our necks. These passes come in really handy once the theme park gets busy.
When you make your reservations at Dreammore Resort, you will notice several different types of rooms. All of the rooms at the resort are beautifully decorated and super clean, so you really can’t go wrong.
One of the most popular room types for families is the Dreammore Family Suite. These spacious rooms offer a main sleeping area with a separate bunk room.
Both of these sleeping areas provide televisions, and they have a door to close for privacy between the rooms. These divided bedroom spaces work great for families with toddlers or little ones who go to bed and wake up EARLY.
The dining options at Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort really reminded me of that at a deluxe resort hotel at Disney World.
Right by the lobby, the hotel has a quick service cafe called DM Pantry that is great for those looking for healthy food options.
DM Pantry sells grab and go items like salads, sandwiches, and wraps. You will also find yogurts, fresh fruit cups, and vegetable cups.
In addition to the grab and go section, DM Pantry offers made to order sandwiches and Starbucks coffee! We frequented this quick service restaurant a lot during our trip because it was fast and easy.
There are a few tall tables inside the cafe and a cozy sitting area with a right outside the cafe’s doors. This sitting area is right by the Dreammore fireplace and is a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine after a long day in the park.
Song and Hearth
In addition to DM Pantry, Dreammore Resort has a full service restaurant called Song and Hearth that serves breakfast and dinner. During my most recent trip to Dreammore, my family and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Song and Hearth.
You will find so many options at their breakfast buffet:
- biscuits and gravy
- made to order omelettes
- scrambled eggs
- fried potatoes
- pancakes (chocolate chip and sprinkles which my daughter loves!)
- bacon and sausage
- fresh fruit
If you are looking for additional dining options, Dreammore Resort offers room service, Song and Hearth Lounge, and seasonal poolside dining.
Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort offers so many great amenities for kids! The outdoor play area is home to a spacious pool complete with a splash pad perfect for toddlers.
In addition to this pool, Dreammore has an indoor pool that is open year round. The resort also has an arcade full of all sorts of games and activities that are perfect for cold or rainy weather.
Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort offers a lot of really great events and activities for kids and families.
We were given a recreation schedule at check-in, which showed the days and times for some of the resorts special events and activities for the week.
You can visit the official Dollywood’s Dreammore Resort website to see some samples of the weekly entertainment calendars.
If you are visiting during a special holiday event, the resort also offers some themed activities like breakfast with Santa!
Final Review of Dreammore Resort
