Have a Hoop Dee Doo Good Time


Whenever we got down to Florida, my roommate Sarah and I vowed to try as many restaurants and things that we could. One dinner show that was on top of our list was the Hoop Dee Doo Revue. Let's just say it was one of the better ideas that we had during our time on the Disney College Program. 

The premise of this dinner is that you go and watch a show, which is a Western Themed dinner show in Pioneer Hall in Fort Wilderness. Your seats are preassigned, and the menu is already set out for you. The only thing that you have to do is show up. And that's exactly what we did. 

Neither of us wanted to drive because at this dinner show there is unlimited alcohol (well, certain kinds of alcohol), and we both (being over 21) wanted to participate in. We both opted for sangria that night, drinking as much as we could with our delicious dinner. So the first thing we had to do was figure out the bus system from CP housing to Fort Wilderness. That was an adventure in and of itself. But we made it with plenty of time to spare to make it to our seats in Category 2 Seating (as far back as you can get). 

Dinner is served family style, but because it was just Sarah and I, we didn't really put things on our plates - we just ate from the bowls. There was dinner salad, spare ribs, fried chicken, corn, baked beans, and strawberry short cake. It was so freaking delicious. The show itself was so amusing, I found myself at times being distracted by the show and not really eating. 

Apparently at times it can be very difficult to get a reservation here, but being a cast member they had specific times set aside that we could go, and so we took advantage of it. We were able to get a reservation for a week after we decided to have dinner there - it was super simple, but if you don't have the luxury that we did, I would say book as early as possible. 

If you have the opportunity to go, take it. It can be a bit pricey, but you're paying for the atmosphere, alcohol, and show. It was worth it for me to do once, but I'm on to trying new experiences.
