How Does The 2024 Bring-A-Friend Free ticket at Dollywood Work?

If you have any of Dollywood’s 2024 season passes, one of your benefits is that you get free BAF ( bring a friend) tickets!. The amount you get depends on which pass you have but don’t worry, we go over that later. 

Using your BAF tickets is really easy. You log into your Dollywood Passholder account – either on the app or the computer, and under “My Tickets & Passes” you will find your “entitlements“. The BAF tickets will be right there.

You can show the tickets on your phone or print them out and show them to the host to scan. Two-Park passholders can use their Bring-A-Friend Free tickets at either Dollywood or Dollywood’s Splash Country. Keep in mind that the entire party has to be together when you scan your tickets.

( the Passholder has to be there with the Friends for them to be able to use the free tickets. )

How Many Bring A Friend Passes Can You Use at Dollywood?

The number of passes you get depends on the type of Dollywood season pass you have.
(Each passholder gets BAF tickets, so if 4 people in your family have the Diamond Pass, you get 16 BAF tickets all together!.)

Here’s a breakdown for the 2024 season:

Diamond PassHolders

If you have a Diamond pass, You’ll receive four (4) “Bring-A-Friend” tickets with No blackout dates.

Once the Bring-A-Friend Free ticket has been scanned, it cannot be used again and you will not get more for the season. Remember that the Passholder has to be present with the Bring-A-Friend ticket holder when using these tickets. This means that you can’t just hand off your tickets to your friends and have them go to the park without you.

    1. Hi Cami, unfortunately, you can’t. The only thing you can do with your BAF ticket is $10 off towards a season pass.

  2. Gay Saucier says:

    Do any blackout dates apply to gold season passes? How many BAF passes do I have with two gold season passes? Are children BAF passes the same as adult?

    1. There are no blackout dates for Gold Passes. For the 2024 season , you only get 1 BAF per pass. So you would have 2 bring a friend passes.

      If the child’s ticket is a gold pass, then the BAF pass is the same. They would also get 1.

  3. Natiasha Brown says:

    If I have 2 Childs Silver Passes can they bring an ADULT friend and is there an blackout date on that?
