We drove our car from our hotel to the Fort Wilderness Campgrounds. From the Outpost we hoped on a Disney bus and rode it down to the settlement. For the first time ever, in our Disney experience, everything went without a hitch and we made it to Pioneer Hall in record time... which meant we had an excess of time to kill before we needed to check in. Luckily, there is a playground.
How the Hoop Dee Doo Works:
As you can see, we sat in the balcony this time. The seating assignments are broken into three sections: the floor, outer edges of the first level (under the balcony) and the balcony. The cast member making your reservation will discuss these options with you. You must decide when you are booking. And of course, they each come with a different price tag. I can't remember exactly why I chose the second floor... it may have been the only thing available for the 6:15 show.
Don't be discouraged if the balcony is all there is. It is really fun. The characters come up and move around the entire restaurant. You have a great view of the stage from up top. And trust me, you are definitely still part of the show. It's wonderful.
The show is excellent. We laugh, clap, sing and dance along. It is fun for the entire family, although the super littles might not care for it as much. My kids are 8 & 10, they LOVE it. The first time we brought them to the Hoop Dee Doo they were 3 & 5. They loved it then too.
The food is served family style. While you are laughing and enjoying the show, your server will slam down buckets of deliciousness. It's all-you-can-eat ribs, chicken, baked beans, corn off the cob and mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
Of course, since this was a big birthday dinner for us, we HAD to point out Stu when they asked if there were any birthdays in the crowd.
Riley was THRILLED to get his picture with Dolly. I think that was the highlight of the night for him.
The dinner show closes with some washboard fun and AMAZING strawberry shortcake.
So what are you waiting for? Call and make your reservation today!
