Pigeon Forge, TN –
The team behind Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort have released a report on the construction time table, and the news is good. According to the construction team the project is proceeding as scheduled. On site, buildings are starting to take shape as they approach their summer 2015 opening date. A news report from WBIR in Knoxville stated the new resort is planned to be opened by June 2015.
Dollywood’s DreamMore resort will sit on 60 acres near Dollywood Theme Park and Dollywood’s Splash Country. Around the property guests will find large porches with rocking chairs so visitors can sit back, relax, and enjoy the Smoky Mountain views. The resort will feature over 300 rooms with various layouts that will bring families together. These include the Family Reunion Suites, “”One of the things I’m proudest of is we’re going to have reunion suites, where all of the doors are opened in between so you can bring your whole family and everybody can just run back and forth into your room or you can slam it in their face if you want to,” Joked Dolly Parton at a special ceremony to bless the grounds of the future hotel.
Dolly told reporters that, “‘I’ve been dreaming about this resort since the very day we’ve actually opened Dollywood.” She also revealed personal items that will be locked up in a time capsule like ‘Dream Box’ that will be opened in 2045. Items of Dolly’s include a copy of her book, ‘Dream More,’ a piece of wood from her Tennessee Mountain Home’s front porch, and a sealed, mystery box. Also placed in the box is a song recorded by the country music super star. Dolly Parton joked with reporters saying that she still will be around to reopen the box in 2045, “I’ll only be 98” Dolly said.
