Did you know the average person spends a whopping 90,000 hours at work during their lifetime? All that work and no play is enough to drive you crazy if you let it! Time to schedule that personal day, grab your friends and family, and head to Dollywood!

Here are 3 ways to enjoy a one-day trip to Dollywood:

1. 9 a.m.: Pour Yourself a Cup of Ambition– Yawning, stretching, trying to come to life? No worries about finding the perfect cup of coffee at Dollywood! Coffee is waiting for you at multiple locations throughout the park, served by smiling faces. For more information about where to find coffee throughout Dollywood, check out this Insider blog post: Just remember that man (and woman) cannot survive on coffee alone… and the best accompaniment to a piping hot cup of coffee is Dollywood’s famous cinnamon bread!

2. Noon: In the Same Boat with a Lot of Your Friends– Did you know that Dollywood’s rides and attractions are specifically designed to bring people together? Dollywood is designed so that families and friends can experience rides and attractions together as a group. That’s the concept behind many of the experiences at Dollywood, including the Smoky Mountain River Rampage. This white-water experience puts you face-to-face with the water, and with each other! Nothing relieves your stress more than braving the rapids with your friends. Read more about this wild and wet ride here.

3. 5 p.m.: You’ve Got Dreams They’ll Never Take Away– Your day at Dollywood may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! Upgrade your day ticket to a Season Pass as you leave so the fun can continue beyond just one day or one festival! While summer may be coming to a close, Dollywood is gearing up for amazing fall and winter celebrations. Once again, Dollywood is kicking off the fall season with their Harvest Festival, featuring Great Pumpkin LumiNights and the Southern Gospel Jubilee. See what’s in store for fall here. And get a sneak peek of Dollywood’s famous Smoky Mountain Christmas here.

So, jump in that shower and get that blood pumping – your fun at Dollywood has just started jumping!
