Dollywood had voluntarily closed in March to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The city of Pigeon Forge had issued a local Safer-At-Home order March 23.

In April, the theme park announced employee furloughs due to the extended closure. The company also announced the extension of 2020 Season pass tickets into 2021.
