Yes, you read that title correctly. Have you ever wondered how much money you’re saving with a Dollywood Silver Season Pass compared to a one-day ticket? You don’t have to. We did the math for you!
During the 2023 season, four of our award-winning festivals are returning; plus, we are kicking off the season with a special 50th year celebration of Dolly’s beloved hit song “I Will Always Love You.” Oh, and did we forget to mention that Big Bear Mountain, Dollywood’s largest roller coaster to date, opens this spring? If that’s not enough reasons to want to come back and visit multiple times throughout the year, maybe this useful cost breakdown will convince you that now is the BEST time to become a Silver Season Passholder.
You may be thinking to yourself: is a Silver Season Pass really the best value for my family at a price tag of $159+tax*? Would it just make more sense to buy a two-day or three-day ticket instead? That really depends on how your family likes to visit the park.
Multi-day tickets are a great option if you are visiting over the course of a five-day window of time. If you live a little bit closer to Dollywood and are interested in experiencing something different each season throughout the year or just want to run up to the park on a weekend, a Season Pass makes the most sense for your family. Here’s why.
Each time you want to visit the park on a one-day ticket, that will cost $89+tax each visit. If you plan on experiencing the I Will Always Love You Celebration, the Flower & Food Festival presented by Covenant Health, Smoky Mountain Summer Celebration, the Harvest Festival presented by Humana and Smoky Mountain Christmas presented by Humana that will end up costing $445+tax for all five of those visits. With a Silver Season Pass, each of those visits only would cost $31.80+tax each!
Let’s also talk about the extra perks you get with being a Season Passholder compared to purchasing a one-day ticket. With a Dollywood Silver Season Pass, you also receive two Bring-A-Friend Free tickets** to share the fun with your friends and family. Each of those tickets are valued at $89+tax each; so, you’re getting a bonus value of $178+tax just for being a Silver Season Passholder!
Silver Season Passholders also get special discounts on tickets and Dollywood lodging as well as discounts at area attractions and shows like Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Ripley’s Attractions, Titanic Museum and more. Dollywood Passholders also receive 50% off tickets to other properties in the Herschend Family Entertainment family like Silver Dollar City, Wild Adventures, Kentucky Kingdom and more.
2023 is going to be a great year to be a Season Passholder. We recommend purchasing your pass before Sunday, March 12 when prices go up. Plus, you can spread out your payments over six months! This offer is available online only for a limited time, so take advantage of it while you can!
We look forward to seeing you at Dollywood soon!
