For those who have been to Dollywood, how long would you suggest spending at the part 2-3 days, longer or less? Goal is to see most everything, given 9yo DD will be with us there may be some shows she would prfer to avoid so maybe we would see less than all...
What are the rides like? Any don't miss rides?

I love traveling. I've been to Dinsey at all different times of the year with Christmas being my favorite. I've been to six continents and hope to very soon visit Antarctica. Australia and Fiji are among my all time favorite foreign destinations.
