What is TimeSaver

More time, less wait! TimeSaver is an electronic line management system that reserves your place in line at select shows and rides while you enjoy all that Dollywood has to offer! This small portable device is convenient and easy to use. While all shows and rides are still FREE with your paid admission, the rented TimeSaver will reserve your spot in line so you no longer need to wait!

TimeSaver operating days may vary. TimeSaver rides are subject to closure and may not be available on the day of your visit.

TimeSaver is for paying TimeSaver participants only. Please be aware that your TimeSaver device will hold your place in line at the theatre until 5 minutes before your designated show.

How much is TimeSaver?

$30 (plus tax) per person for your choice of unlimited rides and shows.

At participating shows, children ages three and under who sit on a parent’s lap do not require a TimeSaver reservation. TimeSaver theatre seating capacity is limited. For rides, all passengers must be assigned to a TimeSaver device.

TimeSaver devices are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited daily. You must be 18 years of age (ID required) to rent a TimeSaver device.

Gold and Super Gold season passholders must make and complete the transaction and the Gold and Super Gold Pass must be presented at the time of purchase to receive discount.

How does TimeSaver work?

Visit the TimeSaver Reservation Center on Showstreet (Map location 19) next to DP's Celebrity Theater for more information or to rent a TimeSaver device for the day. Once you have completed your transaction, one of our TimeSaver Hosts will show you how to reserve your shows and rides. Before leaving the TimeSaver rental office, reserve your seats for available shows at one of the easy-to-use kiosks.

Reserving a place in line for a ride may be done from anywhere in the park. Simply use the buttons on the TimeSaver device to scroll through the list of available rides. Each ride will appear on screen along with the ride’s wait time. You may make your selection using the TimeSaver device.

Remember to secure the TimeSaver device in a safe place, preferably a belt loop or pocket, close to your person. Before your selected show and/or ride time, a beep and vibration will indicate that it’s time to make your way to the attraction.

For shows, you must arrive 5 minutes or more before your scheduled showtime or your reserved seat(s) will be made available to other guests. You may enter your selected ride any time after the displayed time on the TimeSaver device. It’s that easy! If you need assistance, please visit the TimeSaver Reservation Center. 

As you exit the park, simply return your TimeSaver device to the TimeSaver Reservation Center or the 
drop box located in the front of the Dollywood Emporium. Unreturned TimeSaver devices are subject to a $225 charge.
