Dollywood Christmas Giveaway

SPEAKER 1:         WELCOME BACK, EVERYONE. WELL, IT’S CHRISTMASTIME DOWN HERE AT DOLLYWOOD, AND THE WOMAN THAT YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT HAS EVERYTHING IN ORDER AS SENIOR PUBLICIST. ELLEN, HOW ARE YOU MY DARLING?
ELLEN:        I AM GREAT. IT’S PERFECT HOLIDAY WEATHER AT DOLLYWOOD TONIGHT.
SPEAKER 1:         IS IT JUST NOT? I JUST HAVE TO SAY TO YOU, THE LAST TIME WE WERE HERE, WE WERE SWEATING. THIS TIME, IT’S A LITTLE NIPPY. IT’S OKAY, THOUGH, BECAUSE WHY? WE’RE STANDING OUTSIDE YOUR NEWEST ATTRACTION.
ELLEN:        THE BRAND NEW GLACIER RIDGE, WHICH IS-
SPEAKER 1:         OH, MY GOSH.
ELLEN:        THE BIGGEST EXPANSION IN DOLLYWOOD CHRISTMAS HISTORY, AND WE ARE GETTING READY TO GO SEE EVERYTHING THERE IS TO SEE IN GLACIER RIDGE.
SPEAKER 1:         WELL, JUST TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT FIRST, ELLEN.
ELLEN:        WELL, YOU CAN ENTER IT FROM EITHER THE AREA WE ARE RIGHT NOW OR ON THE OTHER END OF THE PARK. RIGHT HERE, WHERE WE ARE, YOU’RE GREETED BY SOME REALLY FRIENDLY POLAR BEARS WHO HAVE COME DOWN TO SEE THEIR BLACK BEAR NEIGHBORS IN THE SMOKEY’S. WE’RE GOING TO GO UP THROUGH DOLLYWOOD’S VERSION OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY CAN ACTUALLY GO SEE THE NORTHERN LIGHTS, SO DOLLY SAID, “LET’S JUST BRING THEM TO DOLLYWOOD.”
SPEAKER 1:         AS DOLLY DOES.
ELLEN:        EXACTLY. THEN, LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL LIGHTS, ACTUALLY A WHOLE NOTHER MILLION LIGHTS WERE ADDED TO GLACIER RIDGE, TAKING THE NUMBER AT DOLLYWOOD’S CHRISTMAS FROM FOUR MILLION TO FIVE MILLION. DOLLY THOUGHT WE OUGHT TO STEP IT UP JUST A LITTLE BIT.
SPEAKER 1:         DOLLY’S LIKE, “COME ON. YOU’RE BRINGING ME BACK.”
ELLEN:        BUT THE SHOWCASE IS OUR 50-FOOT ANIMATED CHRISTMAS TREE-
SPEAKER 1:         ARE YOU SERIOUS?
ELLEN:        AND IT’S NOT JUST-
SPEAKER 1:         ARE WE GOING TO SEE THAT IN A LITTLE BIT?
ELLEN:        ABSOLUTELY, AND IT’S NOT JUST A CHRISTMAS TREE. IT ACTUALLY TELLS A STOR THROUGH THE LIGHTS. MIGHT HEAR A LITTLE DOLLY MUSIC WHILE YOU’RE UP THERE, TOO.
SPEAKER 1:         OH, FANTASTIC. THIS IN HALLOWEEN CHANGES, DOESN’T IT?
ELLEN:        ABSOLUTELY. DURING THE FALL, END OF SEPTEMBER THROUGH THE 1ST OF NOVEMBER, IT WAS ACTUALLY GREAT PUMPKIN LUMINIGHTS.
SPEAKER 1:         THAT’S RIGHT.
ELLEN:        THEN, IN LESS THAN A WEEK, OUR AMAZING TEAM HERE-
SPEAKER 1:         TRANSFORMED.
ELLEN:        IN DOLLYWOOD SPECIAL EVENTS TRANSFORMED IT FROM A FALL FESTIVAL INTO A WINTER WONDERLAND FOR EVERYBODY TO ENJOY FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON.
SPEAKER 1:         NOW, TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT … WE’RE A LITTLE BIT EARLY RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF THE CHRISTMAS PARADE. IT COMES ON A LITTLE BIT LATER ON. JUST TELL US ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS PARADE.
ELLEN:        WELL, A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WHEN THE CHRISTMAS OF MANY COLORS MOVIE CAME OUT, WE DECIDED, WOULDN’T IT BE COOL TO HAVE A BRAND NEW PARADE THAT WENT ALONG WITH THAT THEME, AND IT IS SPECTACULAR. WE’VE ALWAYS HAD A PARADE AT CHRISTMAS. SAME KIND OF THING. IT WAS LIKE, “DOLLY HAS A NEW MOVIE. LET’S DO SOMETHING TO KIND OF GO ALONG WITH THAT.” BIG FLOATS. YOU MIGHT SEE A BUTTERFLY OR TWO, CHRISTMAS BUTTERFLY.
SPEAKER 1:         WE LIKE THOSE.
ELLEN:        GREAT MUSIC, AND MY FAVORITE IN THE PARADE IS THE HUMAN SNOW GLOBES. I WANTED TO SEE IF YOU AND I COULD DO IT, AND THEY SAID THEY HAD TO LET THE ACTUAL HUMAN SNOW GLOBES TAKE CARE OF THAT.
SPEAKER 1:         WELL, I’VE OFTEN WANTED TO HOP IN A GLOBE.
ELLEN:        EXACTLY.
SPEAKER 1:         LET ME TELL YOU.
ELLEN:        EXACTLY.
SPEAKER 1:         I DO WANT TO TELL EVERYONE DOLLYWOOD IS ONE OF THE HAPPIEST PLACES. IT REALLY IS. EVERYONE HERE IS JUST SO KIND, SO LOVELY AND SWEET. WE GET TO STAY AT THE DREAMMORE RESORT, AS WELL. THAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
ELLEN:        WELL, WE ARE PROUD OF ALL OF OUR GREAT RIDES, ALL OF OUR GREAT ENTERTAINMENT, OUR FESTIVALS LIKE THIS ONE, AND THE ONE DURING THE HARVEST-
SPEAKER 1:         OH, MY GOSH.
ELLEN:        BUT I THINK THE THING THAT WE’RE PROUDEST OF IS THAT FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS, THE THEME PARK INDUSTRY HAS VOTED DOLLYWOOD THE FRIENDLIEST THEME PARK IN AMERICA-
SPEAKER 1:         IT REALLY IS.
ELLEN:        AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE REALLY PROUD OF. WE LOVE FOR PEOPLE TO COME, FEEL LIKE THEY’RE AT HOME, KIND OF THEIR OWN PERSONAL THEME PARK, AND HOPEFULLY WE’VE MADE YOU FEEL THAT WAY TODAY.
SPEAKER 1:         WELL, WE LOVE IT. WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE COMING DOWN HERE. HEY, GUESS WHAT, GUYS? WE HAVE THE BEST GIVEAWAY.
