Dollywood has a map and more info here.
This year the new parking lot entrance was re-worked so that cars will no longer queue up onto McCarter Hollow road, causing long lines to form on the road, which creates a problem for locals that live in the area. Now, when you pull into the new entrance, you turn to the left and go about 6-700 yards to the toll booths, then loop around to the right towards the C,B & A lots. I think it makes more sense to eliminate the 'front' guest entrance because they fill up the lot from the A-section and work towards filling the lots to the back, like most parks do - so its easier when you have traffic coming from one direction. Not to mention the access roads to the 'front' entrance are only two lane roads and are not ideal. Anyhoo, the other component of this is the near-completion of Veterans Blvd, which is a 6-lane highway leading to the 'new entrance'. This road has been under construction for Eeons, and will be finished soon. Lots of long-term planning finally coming together. When Everything is completed, it will be much easier to enter and exit the park.
There's a lot happening at Dollywood in the off season with the River Battle being constructed, as well as the completion of the loop from Timber Canyon that will connect at Craftsman Valley at the exit of Tennessee Tornado. Expect to see the continuation of adding major rides and amenities in the years to come. *** Edited 8/27/2007 8:15:25 PM UTC by coasterfreaky***
If you take a ride on the train, you can also see some of the land prep being done for the new attraction and/or pathway out behind Mystery Mine.
