October 17, 2022

Dollywood's 2023 Season Passes officially go on sale Oct. 31, and we are offering all treats and no tricks! We are rewarding the early planners out there with the opportunity to purchase a 2023 Season Pass at the lowest price with the most benefits. Remember: the earlier you buy your passes, the better the deal is! (Waiting on a later sale will not always land you a better deal.)

With so many BIG Dollywood moments happening next year, the best way to capture them all is with a Gold Season Pass. Below are at least nine benefits you'll be able to take advantage of in 2023 when you snag a Gold Season Pass for every member of your family.

1. Access to Golden Events throughout the season. These events are exclusive to Gold and Diamond Passholders only and include opportunities like meet & greets, festival previews, reserved seating for your favorite shows and more!

2. Using the TimeSaver line on your favorite attractions during the first hour of every operating day.

3. Saving 15% on select food offerings and shopping.

4. Parking for FREE every time you visit. Plus, save $10 when you want to upgrade to Preferred Parking.

5. Saving $10 on one-day tickets for friends and family.

6. One day of FREE fountain drink refills, then enjoy $.99 refills during future visits with a complimentary souvenir mug.

7. Using your 2023 pass during Smoky Mountain Christmas presented by Humana in 2022.

8. Using your Bring-A-Friend Free tickets WHENEVER YOU WANT. That's right! In 2023, there are no blackout dates for Gold and Diamond Bring-A-Friend tickets!

9. Experiencing Big Bear Mountain over and over again.

Bonus Tip

If you want premium versions of these benefits, upgrade to a Diamond Season Pass! You'll get even deeper discounts and access to extra special events exclusive to Diamond Passholders. Plus, we'll automatically include unlimited admission to Dollywood's Splash Country.

Don't wait! A few of these offers like the souvenir mug, bring-a-friend free tickets and even the Diamond Passes are only available for a limited time. Lock in those savings as soon as possible!
