Dolly Parton's DreamMore Resort Welcomes Its First Guests
If you've ever wondered what a Dolly Parton themed resort would look like, it's your lucky day. Today, the DreamMore resort welcomed its first visitors. The location—which was announced back in August of 2013—is located on the performer's themepark, aptly named Dollywood. The resort has been called the company's most-anticipated project so far in its 30-year history. Parton's words: "It brings me back to when my whole family would get together on the front porch catching up and swapping stories. I want families to spend the day experiencing the fun of our parks, then come to this beautiful resort to spend time together."
Once yon the property, there's no forgetting you're at Parton's place. Right outside the blue-ceiling lobby lives a fountain inspired by Parton's book, "Dream More." Once inside, guests are greeted with three-story-tall windows showing off a stunning view of the nearby Smoky Mountains. Guests looking to head on over to the themepark will also receive a couple of perks: free transportation to Dollywood and Dollywood's Splash Country, themepark TimeSaver passes for each guest, and early Saturday park entrance, among other promised benefits.
