We stayed at Park Vista and decided to purchase a Trolley pass so we could just leave our vehicle parked at the hotel. It was convenient to not have to worry about driving down the mountain and search for parking (plus pay the expensive parking fees).
There was a screen inside to show where the 2 Trolleys (red and green) that service Park Vista were at. So it was easy to find out how long the wait would be. We made a few trips down to Gatlinburg and then back to the hotel to drop off things we had purchased.
It was a bit difficult to stand and hold on while going up or down that hill to Park Vista. I highly recommend sitting if there's an option seat! Especially if you don't have good balance or if you have knee issues.
The trolleys stop running to Park Vista at midnight. We caught one at the Convention Center at about 11:40. I was starting to get a little scared that we had missed the last one!
I'd definitely use the Trolley the next time we go back.
