Disney’s Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue Review.
Why you should make this classic Disney dinner show part of your family’s vacation!
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a two hour long dinner show located at Disney’s Fort Wilderness & Campground. The dinner show features unlimited comfort food, including a few vegan options! You also get unlimited pop, coffee, beer or sangria.
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue has been entertaining families for over 40 years. The first show opened in 1974 and hosts daily shows at Pioneer Hall at Fort Wilderness.
I highly recommend booking your reservation as early as possible; preferably at the 180 day mark. The dinner show has a tiered seating system and three different category options. We got category 1 tickets and our table was very close to the stage. If you want to be in the center of the action, category 1 seating is definitely for you. If you aren’t too keen on getting picked on, category 2 or 3 seating would probably be better for you.
There are a few different transportation options to get to the show. Be sure to give yourself extra time when using Disney transportation. We were staying at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, so we took the boat over to Fort Wilderness. Another option is to take the ferry from Magic Kingdom. If you are driving your own vehicle, you park at the main entrance to Disney’s Fort Wilderness & Campground. Then you will take a bus to Pioneer Hall. Allow for at least 30 minutes for the bus transportation.
We arrived about 40 minutes prior to the show starting. This gave us plenty of time to check in and explore the campground.
I have to be honest. I went in thinking that I wasn’t going going to enjoy the country western with slapstick jokes and songs. I found myself pleasantly surprised. I found myself laughing and participating! A big part of the show is the audience participation. The performers did an amazing job getting the audience involved and choosing members of the audience to go up on stage.
The food was delivered throughout the show. All three courses were perfectly timed out. The traditional meal consists of fried chicken, ribs, mashed potatoes, corn and cowboy beans. For vegetarians and vegans, there is a separate dining menu. I had noted that I couldn’t have dairy, eggs and fish on my dining reservation. I reminded the server who brought out a vegetarian friendly menu. The chef also went around to all the tables with any dietary restrictions.
For my meal, I ordered the grilled marinated vegetables and pasta primavera. The server made me feel bad for ordering both because he said that they were two entrees. I wanted the vegetables, but I knew that wouldn’t be enough to eat for dinner. The pasta portion was huge; there was enough pasta for 4-6 people. The pasta was actually pretty good and the pasta was cooked perfectly.
For dessert, strawberry shortcake is served at the end of the dinner show. The chef made me a vegan strawberry shortcake with enjoy life sugar cookies. I love that the chefs at Disney are very accommodating when it comes to dietary restrictions.
Disney’s Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue is a classic Disney World show that families have been enjoying for years. I can see why many families make the Disney’s Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue part of their family vacation. I don’t think the show is going to be everyone’s cup of tea. If you aren’t a big fan of shows with audience participation, this might not be the show for you. The show has great energy and the performers are very talented. Overall I had a great time at the show and love that they offer vegan options!
