Just announced, some employees found out when they showed up for work today. Not a good way to handle it IMHO.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction in Orlando ceased all operations on Monday after selling its property, and some employees found out about the decision when they showed up for work.

The closing became official at 3 p.m. when the attraction's 13 acres, located along Interstate 4 near Walt Disney World, were purchased by an undisclosed owner, attraction officials told Local 6 News.

Some employees of Dixie Stampede were informed of the decision when they arrived for work on Monday, and officials said they were attempting to notify other workers by phone.

Unfortunately, this is very typical of the local Dixie Stampede management. They have a terrific product but they don't always seem to know how to operate in a professional manner. I wish all their Orlando employees well and wish them success in future endeavors.
