This summer is going to be an exceptional one at Walt Disney World Resort! If you’re in the mood for some “Frontier-Style Family Fun”, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is making its grand return to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground with pricing and showtimes now available.
While we were sad to learn Spirit of Aloha at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is officially closed for good to make way for a new Polynesian Resort tower, we were thankful when Disney announced it would be returning at least one of its former two dinner show offerings.
Disney previously announced that Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue will make its grand return on June 23, 2022, making all of us Disney foodies relieved to see the return of this nostalgic dining experience.
The dinner show is held in Pioneer Hall where Guests gather for an all-you-care-to-enjoy feast of fried chicken, smoked BBQ, and pork ribs with savory sides such as tossed green salad, cowboy beans, fresh-baked cornbread (YUM!), macaroni and cheese, and creamy coleslaw. Top off the meal with Hoop-Dee-Doo’s famous strawberry shortcake! Plus, let’s not forget the opportunity to enjoy unlimited draft beer, wine, and sangria for Guests 21 years and up.
While the food is exceptional, the Hoop-Dee-Doo Pioneer Hall Players take center stage for 2 hours of “rousing Wild West dancing, singing, and zany comedy.” The fun-spirited dinner show has been a family favorite for years with its ability to keep the audience entertained and bellies satisfied. You won’t be able to resist clapping, laughing, and singing along!
Disney has now revealed showtimes for Hoop Dee Doo Revue beginning June 23, 2022, as noted, “Please arrive 30 minutes prior to reservation time to check-in. The doors open at 4:00 p.m., 6:15 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. Seating will begin immediately at these times; the show begins 20 minutes later.”

How much is this Disney experience going to cost? Pricing for Hoop-Dee-Doo is broken down into three categories:
- Category 1: $74 (ages 10 years and older); $44 (ages 3-9)
- Category 2: $69 (ages 10 years and older); $40 (ages 3-9)
- Category 3: $66 (ages 10 years and older); $39 (ages 3-9)
We personally recommend splurging for Category 1 per Guest if at all possible as it puts you front and center with all the action. We will say, however, that there really isn’t a bad seat in the house! The experience is a perfect way to enjoy exceptional Walt Disney World dining with entertainment outside of a Disney Park.
We’re happy to see the dinner show pricing isn’t returning with a massive price increase. In 2019, Category 1 cost $72 for adults and $43 for children, Category 2 was $67 for adults and $39 for children, and Category 3 was $64 for adults and $38 for children.
Reservations for Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue go on sale beginning Thursday, May 26, 2022, with the first show beginning June 23rd. Happy dining, Disney fans!
