Our family was in awe at Dolly Parton’s newest dinner adventure last night…

* 16 killed in military plane crash
* Trump Jr. may have had prior knowledge about Russia’s involvement in election
* Venus Williams to play her 100th Wimbledon match today; this is her 75th Major tournament- the most of any player, man or woman – in the open era

We got to Dollywood’s Splash Country Waterpark right after it opened yesterday and didn’t even find a chair before dropping our stuff to ride the new TailSpin Racer water slides…and they did not disappoint! Not only did we get right on with no line, but because there are 6 slides next to each other, our whole family (at least those who were brave enough) was able to slide and ride at the same time. (I won, of course ?

We spent a sun-soaked and fun-filled day there, making sure to ride our favorite rides right away before too many people showed up, and then spent the rest of the day in the Lazy River and Wave Pool.

We left with just enough time to catch Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Adventures, her newest dinner experience in Pigeon Forge. Man, it did not disappoint. The story chronicles Dolly’s parents before they were married, and sheds light into the “feud” between the Partons and the Owens. But, like any great story Dolly tells, her music was woven throughout and love ultimately wins in the end. What really stood out to us was the attention to detail throughout every inch of the facilities, the incredible skill of the performers (especially the acrobatics), the delicious food and, of course, Dolly’s signature sound. This show is a must-see next time you’re in the area.

Today we’re headed back to Dollywood before heading home.

Disclosure: I’m one of the Dollywood Insiders, so I was provided season passes as part of my participation in the panel, but all thoughts are uniquely my own! We also received a media rate at the SpringHill Suites Pigeon Forge.
