While you’re running around the park wondering how long the line is at Wild Eagle or Lightning Rod, I am walking around wondering how long the wait is at Till & Harvest or Aunt Granny’s Restaurant. Your food might be secondary or an afterthought, but the food experience is the focal point of my visits.
I visited on the first day of the Harvest Festival to try the new fall-food lineup.
Here are Harvest-specific menu items Dollywood has available this season for your foodie checklist:
Cabbage Roll Dinner– Available at Front Porch Café.
Reuben Wonton Appetizer– New item! Corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese in wonton wrapper and deep fried drizzled with thousand island and served with homemade pickles. Available at Front Porch Café.
Pierogis – New item! Potato-filled pierogis sautéed with caramelized onions and drizzled with sour cream. Available in Market Square at a festival booth.
Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwich– Pumpkin ice cream sandwiched between giant sugar cookies. Available at the Sweet Shoppe.
Apple Cider– Available throughout the park.
Skillet potatoes- Available in Market Square.

Bring on the pumpkin, bring on the cider. Bring on the apples. Bring on Harvest Festival!
