Yah-hoo, let’s eat! Get ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet and sing along, as the beloved musical dinner show Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue returns this summer to Walt Disney World Resort! If you’re hankerin’ for a seat at the table, reservations will be available via DisneyWorld.com starting May 26 for showtimes beginning June 23.
The Pioneer Hall Players and cast members will be welcoming back guests to this frontier-style family fun dining experience in Pioneer Hall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. First debuting in 1974, Hoop-Dee-Doo will once again offer guests a rousing Wild West performance, singing, zany vaudeville comedy with lots of laughs and an unforgettable countrified feast full of fried chicken, smoked BBQ ribs, a variety of savory sides and of course, strawberry shortcake, yum! The menu is sure to make your mouth water and have you hollerin’ for seconds (and thirds!).
Since its opening day almost 50 years ago, this fan-favorite show has continued to surprise and delight our guests, and as Disney grows we look for new ways to elevate and enhance our classic experiences. Hoop-Dee-Doo will return with a few updates to its script and scenery, while staying true to the treasured experience the whole family can enjoy – with the hilarious, high-spirited entertainment that it’s been known for all these years.
Take a close look at the video below for a sneak peek at one of the fun brand-new backdrops. We’re looking forward to sharing more details soon.

Hoop-Dee-Doo holds a special place in the hearts of many of us as Disney fans and cast members and has been creating special memories for generations.
From my grandparents visiting decades ago to my parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, husband and children all coming together to enjoy good food and lots of fun over the years, I’ll never forget all the great moments that have been shared around rustic tables with washboards in hand. I can’t wait for that tradition for my family and others to continue when the show returns this summer.
We’ve heard from so many of you who are excited about the show’s return and hope you are as happy as we are to see the curtain rise once again!
The return of Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is just the latest to make its grand return, joining other recent entertainment offerings like the “Festival of Fantasy” Parade, “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular”, “Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire” and even “Adventure Friends Cavalcade”! Other shows will be coming back later this year – including “Fantasmic!” and a fresh spin on a guest favorite, “Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!”
Hope to see you soon at Pioneer Hall!
