Hooray for Dollywood! Pigeon Forge Park opens for season
PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. - She's one of the most unique and recognizable people on the planet -- so it's only appropriate that her theme park is unlike anywhere else on earth!
Dollywood Theme Park opens for the season on March 19th, and Good Day Atlanta got the chance to travel to Pigeon Forge and celebrate with the park's namesake, Dolly Parton!
The Tennessee attraction first opened back in the early 1960s as Rebel Railroad, but it wasn't until Dolly Parton became part of the operation in 1986 that it was renamed Dollywood and became a hugely popular tourist destination. The park has seen major expansions over the years, including the recent addition of Dollywood's DreamMore Resort.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken interviews Dolly before DreamMore Resort opened -- and now, he traveled to Pigeon Forge to meet up with her again and talk about the excitement surrounding this upcoming season.
