Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue is Back

Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue is Back

The Western themed family friendly show is coming back to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort on June 23, and we can’t wait to say, “Howdy” again to one of our favorite dinner experiences. The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical is a high energy, hilarious, boot stomping, crowd engaging, vaudeville style comedy starring the Pioneer Hall Players. The two hour show is brought to life with zany songs, skits, dancing, and singing that will entertain cowboys and cowgirls of all ages. This energetic show will also restore your energy, with all-you-care-to-enjoy chicken, smoked BBQ pork ribs, tossed garden salad, baked beans, unlimited soft drinks, warm fresh baked cornbread and strawberry shortcake.  The fun doesn’t stop there… guests 21 and older can enjoy alcoholic beverages including unlimited draft beer, wine, and sangria-with proper ID. 

The Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue might be new to you, but it’s an old friend to Disney. The musical has been a part of the Disney family since 1974, and it is one of the longest running family dinner shows in American history. In Disney’s early years the park was only open until 6pm, leaving on property guests still wanting Disney memories around dinner time. This is where the idea for the Hoop-Dee-Doo was born. Disney’s director of entertainment at the time, Bob Jani, realized the hunger for more Disney… and dinner and helped make this dream a reality. Once the show was developed six actors were hired from the Disney World Fine Arts College Workshop program to play the roles that we will get to meet again in June: Dolly Drew, Jim Handy, Flora Long, Johnny Ringo and Claire de Lune.

Alongside the beloved comedic characters, the family style food is another beloved star of the show. Before Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue temporarily closed its doors due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the chefs spent nearly 6 hours a day just breading the fried chicken. Each show there was a total of 400 pounds of pork, 30 gallons of baked beans, 400 pounds of potatoes, 120 pounds of corn, 15 gallons of strawberries, and 12 gallons whipped cream being served. 
Disney will start taking reservations for the upbeat musical on May 26 for showtimes starting June 23… you Hoop-Dee-DON’T want to miss the return of this show, so please Hoop-Dee-Doo make reservations soon. If you think that’s corny, just wait until you try the cornbread.
