I'm thinking about spending a week here with my family before fall. We've always gone to the Outer Banks and this place seems like an exciting change. My main questions are...Is there anyone on this forum that could share some 'out of towner' info on Dollywood? Cabins look nice for a weekly stay but are they really? Seems like cooking my own breakfast and dinner in the kitchens they provide would be huge savings. Is Dollywood really as 'kid friendly' as it appears to be?(for a 3.5 yr old) Is the waterpark good enough to justify getting the 'summer of fun' cards for the whole week? Will I be bored after 2 or 3 days, or will the place keep my interest? Any kind of trip report would be cool. Or direct me towards one that you trust or used would be cool. Hopefully there is somebody here who has done what I am thinking about doing!
