Don't fill up on [popcorn before during the preshow- it's better to get there on an ( almost) empty stomach.

This is absolutely one of the most horrifying spectacles I have seen in my life. I went with my family when we were vacationing in Gatlinburg, and they had bought tickets to the Dixie Stampede before we arrived. I have come to expect to do (and actually usually DO enjoy) touristy activities with my family. For instance, when in Key West, go to Margaritaville; when in New Orleans, go the amateur drunk route and have a hurricane at Pat O'Brien's. But this. THIS. Is the single worst experience I have ever seen money spent on. I in fact think the proprietors of the event should pay for their customers to sit through this spectacle. Below is just a summary of some of the problems with the Dixie Stampede since I d...

I haven't been to any of the other dinner shows in Pigeon Forge to compare this to, but I don't think I need to: This show and dinner was fantastic! My husband and I were able to make reservations the day of the show and there's no bad seat in the house. The food is hot, fresh, delicious, and eaten without utensils - there is plenty to fill...

Dolly Parton is one crazy chick - crazy enough to create a cheesy dinner show like the Dixie. They give you a lot of food, and it's an extremely casual environment. Very family friendly. This isn't my cup of tea at all, and if my mother didn't force me to go, I gladly would have eaten at a goddamn McDonald's i...

Food was ok, but I got a medal. Horseshoe Champion I never really win anything, especially sports events. I chalk up my lack of athletic success to the effects of gravity on a 250 pound frame. Chances are you'll never see me in an advertisement for Nike involving hang time unless they take into account the waistline of my jeans. That being said, it wasn't always this way... I clearly remember winning the three legged race in First Grade, but I was sharing the glory with Jonathan, a soon to be athlete with skills. Skills that included dragging my butt across the finish line. Everything changed for me at the Dixie Stampede dinner and show in Pigeon Forge, TN. After picking on our server, Kevin (quite possibly ...
