When Does Dollywood Close?

Each year, Dollywood takes a two-month winter vacation starting in January and reopens its gates to the public near the end of March.

During this period, they take advantage of the break by diligently preparing for their upcoming season.

The park is closed to visitors, but the staff and crew are still hard at work! Every department is responsible for performing various tasks that need to get done before the park reopens.

In addition to this, Dollywood also takes advantage of the off-season to introduce new attractions and shows for visitors to enjoy.

Also, do note that while Dollywood Themepark is closed, Dollywood DreamMore Resort and Spa remains open.
