We went last year.  The event was a blast, even though Lightning Rod didn`t open in time.  I would highly recommend it.  

Unfortunately, with a newborn at home (four weeks old tomorrow), we likely won`t be making it this year.

I know you are new parents, but after a few months you will be putting that child in thier car seat and getting out of the house doing the things you enjoy. Maybe not as often as before, but you will adjust and make it work.

I'm highly considering coming down in March for the first time to Dollywood.

Definitely wanting to get down there and visit at some point in the near future.

I know it's a vague question, but are we to the point now where we can reliably say that Lightning Rod will be open?  I hate to be "that guy" but I've been putting off my next trip there for a while now because I don't want to go on a day when it's down.

From what I've heard from videos of No Coaster Con in Chicago where Pete Owens spoke, it seems like they are putting in all efforts to get it fixed to run more reliably. I have a friend who works in the rides office who has said the park has been in constant contact with RMC/third-parties as work is completed to ensure it runs smoothly. 

We won't know until closer to time whether it'll be open or not which kind of stinks.
