Pigeon Forge, Tennessee: Dollywood is looking for some more big time fans to be a part their informative panel of “Dollywood Insiders.”
The insider panel was launched this season with nine park guests. These fans posted blogs, pictures and videos about the park for other park guests. Their posts include topics such as how to get the best value during your Dollywood visit, what’s new at the park, behind the scenes tours and information, and even tips such as the best time to ride the Dollywood Express.
“This has become an excellent opportunity to engage and inform our guests like we’ve never been able to do before,” said Sunni Hickman, VP Dollywood Marketing. “We enjoy trying new channels of communication and I’m confident our guests will see the value in learning and gaining advice from other park guests.”
The first group of selected panelists included moms, professionals, writers, bloggers, and most importantly, they love all things Dollywood.
“Dollywood is one of our absolute favorite places for family fun. It is a gem right in our own backyard!” said Katie Van Dyke, one of the inaugural panelists. “I’m honored to be an Insider, and couldn’t be more excited to help other families get the most out of their Dollywood experience.”
The Insiders serve on the panel for a one-year term and re-apply, if interested. Perks of the role include behind the scenes access, tickets and invitations to media events. The new panel will have even more behind-the-scenes access as the program continues to grow.
For its second season, the theme park is planning to expand the brand experts’ panel. Those who wish to join the next panel can apply online before Friday, Aug. 11 at dollywood.com/Insiders/About-Dollywood-Insiders.
