30 Things to Do with Your Family in the Great Smoky Mountains

  1. I’m so glad your trip was a blast! I tried to go to Applewood with my in-laws, but it was a two-hour wait(!!!) so alas, that will have to wait until a future trip.

      Yikes. That place is crazy busy. We waited an hour, but once we were seated the wait was down to 15 minutes. By the time we left, it was an hour again!

    I just wanted to say thank you for comparing Disney to Smoky Mtns.! We haven’t done the Disney trip due to other obligations, but I’ve had that mom guilt lingering in the back of my mind. It’s good to know that your kids (who are much more well traveled than mine!) don’t feel like Disney is the only happy place on earth.

      I think Disney is possibly more about the adults taking the kids than the kids themselves! It’s really fun, but REALLY crowded, and the lines are always long. I think the kids have just as much fun in less crowded family destinations, like the Smokies, Holiday World, and the lazy river/waterslide at the beach resort that we visit. NO MOM GUILT! 🙂
