So, I never got to update on how my trip to Dollywood went, so here it goes.
We headed out early in the morning so that we got there when the park first opened at 2:00pm. We had to wait in line for about 20 min for the gates to open, though it wasn't that bad. We were able to get good seating at all the shows we watched, we watched It's a wonderful life, Christmas in the smokeys, and O' Holy night. At all the shows there was wonderful acting, singing, and dancing.
I had thought where it was November and since on their website they didn't have anything about the rides being open we assumed that they were closed, but to my surprise and delight, they were open! At Dollywood it was nowhere near as crowded as it was in the summer. I got ride my favorite roller coaster the Tennessee tornado,twice! It was just as amazing as I rembered it. The first time I rode it was still daylight, but the second time we rode in the dark. If you have never rode a roller coaster in the dark, let me just say it is AWESOME!!!! Where we were there at night, we got to see the lights that were decorated everywhere! We also rode a couple other rides such as fire chaser, and blazing fury. There we also saw a show called The timber canyon light show, it was this HUGE Christmas tree that changed colors, with bright lights, and spotlight like lights flashing around, as lively Christmas music was played.
We didn't stay for the parade because it wouldn't start till 8:00pm and we still had to get home and we were going to stop and get something to eat. We decided to leave early and get started on getting home. After stopping at a restaurant and eating, we were back on the road. The trip back was quiet and peaceful, traveling in the nights darkness, I saw the most interesting moon it was a beautiful red and orange.
We arrived at my grandparents house around midnight. We had a wonderful day together, but also tiring.
I took several videos and pictures but because my tablet can't download pictures from my camera, it will be awhile till I can upload the pictures here. But I plan to be getting a laptop sometime this month, so hopefully I will be able to upload pictures from my camera in the near future.
I hope you are having an amazing day, best wishes!
