Wildwood Grove Media Preview

Dollywood Photos Taken: 05/10/2019 Posted: 05/11/2019

Dollywood invited us to witness and capture the opening of Wildwood Grove at their Media Day event. This new expansion is the largest investment in the history of the park. Dollywood claims that the new land contains 11 new experiences. During this preview event, we were able to try them all!

Wildwood Grove is an incredible addition to Dollywood. The land is suitable to people of all ages. All attractions in the land are those in which everyone can participate. The theming and the landscaping in the land are immaculate.

Our favorite attractions were Black Bear Trail, Dragonflier and seeing the Wildwood Tree, but needless to say, there is something for everyone.

Thanks to Dollywood for the invitation and we look forward to returning later this year to see this area at night!
