Dine with Characters from the Imagination Playhouse


June 27, 2023

Make your next summer visit to Dollywood even more special by having breakfast with favorite characters from the Imagination Playhouse! During the Smoky Mountain Summer Celebration, you can eat a delicious breakfast buffet and meet a few characters from your favorite stories all before Dollywood officially opens. This exciting event takes place at 9 a.m. on Saturdays through August 5, 2023, and participants must be Gold, Diamond, or Pre-K Imagination Passholders.

When my family experienced this new character breakfast, we met the baby doll and clown from The Little Engine that Could. They were so kind and asked my kids all about their Dollywood favorites! We snagged some fun photos with them before we ate, and then the characters came by our table and visited while we enjoyed our delicious meal. The characters were extremely engaging, and my children loved having the opportunity to chat with new friends they had previously seen only on stage.

Insider Tip

Be sure to check the schedule and see an Imagination Playhouse show on the day of your breakfast to make the experience even more special. This summer, you can catch Violet the Pilot, Coat of Many Colors and The Little Engine that Could in Heartsong Theater, and each show lasts approximately 20 minutes.

While the character interaction was incredible, the food may have been even better. This breakfast buffet is sure to please kids and adults alike. My children loved the fresh pancakes with topping bar, but the menu had so much more to offer, including:

  • Cinnamon bread French toast
  • Biscuits and sausage gravy
  • Bacon
  • Turkey sausage
  • Country ham
  • Hash brown casserole
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Fresh fruit
  • Muffins
  • Coca-Cola beverages, milk, coffee, and Dollywood Sunrise Breakfast Juice.

Since Dollywood restaurants do not serve breakfast, getting to have these breakfast classics in the park was a great way to start our day.
