Hoop Dee Doo Review at Fort Wilderness

The best dinner show on the property (in my humble opinion) is the Hoop Dee Doo Review at Fort Wilderness. The food is good and family friendly and the show is a lot of fun with lots of laughs. I think I have seen it 3 or 4 times and I have enjoyed it every time.

The Hoop Dee Doo Review is located at the Fort Wilderness Campground. The Contemporary Resort and Wilderness Lodge both have a boat that will take you directly there. From all the other resorts it is best to go to the Magic Kingdom and then take the boat from there to Fort Wilderness. (Be sure you don't get on the boat to Wilderness Lodge) Once you arrive at Fort Wilderness just follow the path away from the boat docks and Pioneer Hall, home of the Hoop Dee Doo Review, will be on your right just after Crocket's Tavern and the Trail's End Restaurant. If you drive you will need to park and then take an internal bus to Pioneer Hall.

The meal includes fresh bread, salad, ribs, fried chicken, baked beans, and corn on the cob. Soda, milk, coffee, tea, beer, and sangria are all included in the price. The meal is finished off with the most delicious and my favorite strawberry shortcake (and I don't even like strawberries, weird I know).  The food is good and all you care to eat.

The show is about 6 singers (3 couples) that just arrived on the stage coach. It is a bunch of country western and americana type songs. There is a skit that includes audience members too. It is a great place to go to celebrate a birthday or anniversary since they will recognize you and have you stand (or dance to "Let me call you sweetheart" if its your anniversary or honeymoon).

There are usually 3 showings at 5, 7:15, and 9:30 and is held on Thursday and Saturday nights. This meal will count as 2 table services on the meal plan and will require a credit card to hold your reservation. If you are using the meal plan you will get category 2 or 3 for the 5 and 7:15 show and category 1 for the 9:30 show. Tax and gratuity is included in the price. The price varies between category 1 and 3. Category 1 is the floor in front for $58.99 for adults and $29.99 for children 3-9. Category 2 is behind Category 1 on floor or the center of the balcony for $54.99 for adults and $26.99 for children. Category 3 is the left and right of the balcony for $50.99 for adults and $25.99 for children. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 407-WDW-Dine.

Have you been to the Hoop Dee Doo Review? Did you enjoy it? I agree that there is nothing like Fort Wilderness. You can be a boat ride away from the magic and still feel like you are relaxed and "away from it all"
