The restaurant is located at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, a resort in the Magic Kingdom area.
Celebrating the beginnings of the American frontier, the sprawling resort evokes the beauty of the great outdoors with charming trails, a horse ranch, and themed dining. It’s a fun place to explore before dinner time.
The show itself takes place in Walt Disney World’s Pioneer Hall, which is designed in an authentic Wild West style and created to look like it was in the late 19th century.
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is offered for a fee.
This all-you-can-eat dining experience is offered daily at 4:00 PM, 6:15 PM, and 8:30 PM for a flat rate price.
You can choose from three categories of tickets that start at $66 and go up to $74 for those aged 10 and over.
Categories determine where you are seated in the theater. Categories one and two are at stage level and category three is upstairs.
Advance reservations are highly recommended and the experience requires prepayment.
When booking, I opted for Category 1 tickets which offered an unobstructed view of the stage. All tickets include unlimited food and drink.
When we arrived each table was set with red plates and checkered napkins which added to the theme.
Alcohol is unlimited.
Disney World is known as an expensive place, but I find the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue to be great value if you’re into booze.
Throughout the two-hour experience, there’s unlimited draft beer, wine, and sangria. Our server was wonderful and was quick to give us refills.
For context, a single glass of sangria around Walt Disney World usually costs between $11 and $13.
The live show runs throughout the two-hour meal.
The live show is comedy meets musical theatre. It’s feisty, great fun and, to me, sums up the magic of Disney perfectly.
Singing and dancing artists on stage are accompanied by a banjo and a pianist.
While the show is largely the same as since I last saw it a few years ago, updates have been made to some sets, lighting, and jokes to reflect modern times.
The fried chicken and ribs were as good as I remember.
Interestingly, this dish was once served in large silver buckets, but now the dishes came out in pans.
The fried chicken was still delicious and juicy with a crispy, salty exterior.
I also liked the new recipe for ribs – instead of being drenched in sauce, they are now smoked with pecans.
All in all, this remains the most unique experience at Walt Disney World.
For $74, I had an incredibly fun evening and came away completely satisfied.
The two hour experience is packed and I felt like I really got what I paid for between the quality of the free food and drinks as well as the amazing live performers. It’s a bit of a throwback – a slice of old-school fun not often found today.
There’s no such thing as energy here and that’s why it remains the most unique experience at Walt Disney World.
Prices are comparable to other dining experiences on Disney property, like Cinderella’s Royal Table. But the royal table has no live entertainment and I feel its quality is much lower overall.
