Sit back and relax while you learn everything you need to know about the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue: A Disney World Dining Review!
My kids beg to see this hilarious and lively musical show on every trip to the World! You will spend 2 hours watching a rip-roaring “hootenanny” that includes the best of the “Wild West” and Vaudeville comedy. Not to mention, some of the best food that Disney World offers. Hoop-Dee-Doo should definitely be on your “DO NOT MISS” list.
We are going to give you the “lowdown” on this “showdown” that begins at “sundown”!!
Getting There and What to Expect
Seating begins immediately when doors open at 4:00 PM, 6:15 PM and 8:30 PM, and the show begins 20 minutes later. The show is located in Pioneer Hall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. You will need to allow for extra time if traveling by Disney’s transportation service, which I do recommend. The best way to get there is by going to Magic Kingdom and then catch a bus or boat to Fort Wilderness-not a big deal at all! Allow for plenty of time to look inside at the awesome gift shop with lots of one-of-a-kind goodies! You may want to check out the campground area as well. There is a lot to explore and see!
PLEASE COME HUNGRY!
You will not hear me say this but once…but, do NOT stop on the way for a cake pop or rice krispy treat!! I understand this will be hard, but you will thank me later. Trust me!
At the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue, you will be served an ALL-YOU-CARE-TO-ENJOY family style buffet. “Family Style” means that your server will bring everything to your table-no need to get up. You wouldn’t want to miss the show, now would you? Your feast begins with fresh baked cornbread and the best butter this side of the cow pasture. Then, BUCKETS, yes, I said buckets…of fried chicken and smoked BBQ pork ribs.
You will also feast on yummy sides such as a tossed green salad, corn on the cob and baked beans. Then, the real treat comes. Homemade Strawberry Shortcake! Again, let me stress this: ALL YOU CARE TO ENJOY. Just politely ask your server for more if you like it as much as my family does. Friends, this is a down-home, country feast better than Sunday dinner at Grandma’s.
This is also one of the few restaurants that your alcoholic beverages ARE INCLUDED! Draft beer, wine and Sangria are available at no extra charge…to those cowboys and cowgirls who are 21 years of age or older, of course. For those that are not quite old enough for the adult beverages, don’t worry! There will be plenty of tea, milk and soft drinks.
Dinner AND a Show
While you are dining on this fabulous feast, the hilarious Claire de Lune, Johnny Ringo, Dolly Drew, Six Bits Slocum, Flora Long and Jim Handy will hit the stage to entertain you. So be prepared to stomp your feet, clap, and hoot and holler right along with them. If you have a special celebration, please let them know. Acknowledgements are made during the show! How cool is that?
Know Before You Go
There are a few things you need to know before you go, just so you don’t get thrown into the jail!
➽If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, this will be 2 table service credits and you will be seated in Category 2 or 3.
➽If you are paying out of pocket, prepayment is required. Prices DO include taxes AND gratuity. You will need to make a reservation, it does fill up fast. There are 3 categories in the seating arrangements. I have to say that there is not a bad seat here. There are HUGE tables to accommodate larger parties, so everyone gets a great view. Plus, the performers are extremely interactive!
Please be aware that seating in Category 3 is upstairs on the balcony and there is not an elevator.
Category 1 Category 2 Category 3
Ages 10-Older $72 $67 $64
Ages 3-9 $43 $39 $38
➽This restaurant can accommodate special dietary needs. Be sure to mention any special needs when booking, or let your Disney Travel Planner know in advance.
➽Wheelchair and EVC’s will be seated in Category 1 sections.
➽Reservations are HIGHLY recommended. You may make reservations through your Disney Travel Planner or by calling 1-407-WDW-DINE. If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort, reservations are available to make 180 days prior to your stay!
➽Bring the ENTIRE family! Everyone from grandma to your toddler will have a great time. They even bring the ol’ wash boards out! The louder you are, the better.
