Orlando or bust: Dollywood seeks Dixie near Disney

ORLANDO -- Dollywood Productions in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., remains interested in constructing a Dixie Stampede & Dinner Show attraction in this area, according to the company.

The firm contracted to buy land near Walt Disney World for that purpose, a company spokesman confirmed.

Dollywood earlier this year failed to win the right to build a $20 million Dixie Stampede & Dinner Show here at its first-choice Florida Center site.

A decision to build there could be forthcoming by the end of the year, he said.

Other Dixie Stampedes are in Branson, Mo.; Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Pigeon Forge.
