Setting and Atmosphere

Hoop-Dee-Doo is the longest-running show at Walt Disney World and a nostalgic favorite for many families. If you’ve ever thought Country Bear Jamboree would benefit from free-flowing beer and wine and barbecue, this is the show for you. The songs are folksy and the humor is corny, but it is so earnest and charming that it's hard not to enjoy yourself.

Audience participation includes sing-alongs, hand-clapping, and a finale where a few guests find themselves onstage. During the meal, the music continues (softly). The food itself is OK—Hoop-Dee-Doo shares a kitchen with local favorite Trail’s End—but you can’t complain about the portion size; the price includes refillable food buckets and refillable alcoholic beverages.

Give special consideration to transportation when planning your evening at Fort Wilderness. There is no parking at Pioneer Hall, which is accessible only by boat (the Magic Kingdom and the loop between Fort Wilderness, Wilderness Lodge, and the Contemporary) and the Fort Wilderness internal bus system. We recommend taking a bus to the Magic Kingdom and boating from there, but be aware that boat service may be suspended during thunderstorms, so if it's raining or looks like it's about to, Disney will provide bus service from the parks.

House Specialties

All-you-can-eat barbecue ribs, fried chicken, corn, cornbread and strawberry shortcake. Vegetarian and seafood alternatives available on request at least 24 hours in advance, and are often tastier than the regular fare.

The fried chicken and corn on the cob are very good, the ribs are a bit tough though tasty. With the all-you-can-eat policy at least you can get your money's worth by stuffing yourself silly. Note that the Tables in Wonderland discount card is usually only accepted for the last show of the day.

Other Recommendations

The best seats (on the main floor in front of the stage) are called Category 1. Category 2 are the seats off to the side or behind Category 1. Category 3 seats are either father back, farther to the side, or on the second floor of the theater.
