Actually you'll be there during an "off week". Not nearly as busy as a summer weekend. But still very busy.

Us too. The moonshine thing was a lot of fun!
We drove through PF. No thanks! Wow, that place makes the Wisconsin Dells and Lake Delton, WI look downright classy! Pigeon Forge and Seiverville give new meaning to the words "tourist trap".
When spending time in Gatlinburg, don't park in downtown. The lots are private and are $8 and $10 flat fee. There is a public parking structure on the east end of downtown Gatlinburg. It's by the hour and not expensive. We never spent more that $3 or $4 to park for a few hours.
