Dolly Parton's Dollywood to get DreamMore Resort with $300M expansion

The official Dollywood Facebook page reveals plans for the DreamMore resort on the Pigeon Forge, Tenn. property, and a family roller coaster rise is also on its way.

"It's gonna be a big deal," Parton tells "Today." "I'm so excited ... this has been a dream from the very beginning. It's got a Southern flair, but it's done very classy." Perhaps a little bit like Dolly herself?

Parton says at 67 years of age, her career is still on the upswing. "I feel like I'm just startin'," Dolly says. "I'm still trying to grow and come up with new dreams every day and make 'em come true."

The tagline for the new resort hotel is "Dream more, learn more, care more and be more."
