My girlfriend & I visited on a recent trip to Walt Disney World after a day at Magic Kingdom. I chose the less expensive seats, which are on the upper level of the hall atop fairly steep steps. Our seats had a nearly unobstructed view of the stage and we were able to see 95-98% of the entire show, save for the one song that the performers were directly beneath us. The menu consisted of a cornbread loaf on the table, tossed salad with Italian dressing, fried chicken (wings, breasts, thighs & legs), barbecue pork ribs, mashed potatoes, green beans, campfire beans (baked beans made with 2 or 3 types of beans & pulled pork) and for dessert, strawberry shortcake. Dinner is all you care to eat with free refills of sodas & unsweetened tea. Alcoholic beverages are available. The table next to us had a plate of cookies brought out of the kitchen as they didn't care for the strawberry shortcake.

The show is reminiscent of the traveling shows of the late 1800's/early 1900's with lots of singing & dancing and plenty of comedy to keep you laughing. Throughout dinner, the performers get the entire audience involved which adds to the fun.

This is a great value for your money. Tons of food and an evening of live entertainment. Bob was our server. He was originally from NJ and was great. The entertainers make the audience part of the show so be prepared. If you are shy dont worry, they are not pushy.
This venue may be a bit tricky if you are in a wheelchair or scooter. The bathrooms are down a few steps and outside to the left. This could be a difficult situation.

Get there early if you are driving there because we did not realize that we had to take an additional bus there. The food was delicious, homemade and tons. The entertainment was wonderful. Even though the menu was universal the Chef was available to provide acceptable alternatives. The only reminder is for the wait staff. Make sure your energy matches the show.

A friend of mine booked us all to eat and watch the show at the Hoop Dee Doo, and in summary it just wasn’t for me. I enjoyed the environment and the uniqueness of the experience and the tables. The entertainment is loud and if that’s your sort of thing and getting involved, you will enjoy this show. The food was tasty as most is in Disney... the issue came when one of my friends told the entertainer it was my birthday. I get anxious and uncomfortable if I get made to be at the centre of people’s attention, particularly when it’s people I don’t know. The entertainer came up to me and told me to get up and participate and i said no thank you. He just kept going and going and going and i kept saying no but he would not leave me alone. I was starting to get annoyed and walked out. That ruined the whole experience for me and I wouldn’t go back.

I am diabetic. Web site said diets could be accommodated and to simply tell wait staff. When we declared it the waiter said he would send the cook. No one ever came and our dietary restrictions were totally ignored. Mass production food and we could not eat most of it due to dietary restrictions. When I retold the waiter he acted like I was a problem and totally ignored me. Food marginal and the show was really bad. Not worth the price. A total disappointment. Plus I feel I was totally lied to about their ability to accommodate special diets. Disney should do better than this.

Whenever we plan our trip to Disney World (at least once a year) The Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue goes in the "MUST" column. It is entertaining, food is good, service is excellent. But I need to caution any man who might be bald: wear a hat!

This was a fun show for families with younger kids. It kept them entertained throughout dinner. The food and service were good. The beverages for adults, wine and beer, weren't that great, but that's okay. We were there mostly for the kids!

I just returned from my second visit to Hoop Dee Doo Revue, the first being in 2014. It's still a funny show and I had a great time, but I wished there were more original music and not as much "This Land is Your Land", and other kids patriotic folk songs we grew up with. This time I was seated in category 3 which they refer to as "the shelf" and the chairs are facing the walkway and not the stage at all, which puzzled me at first, but then it's for the servers ease and the chairs completely swivel so you can view the show easily. I was near the stage the second table from the kitchen and it was a great view from there. Although most of the action and fun happens down on the main floor at the center tables, some of them did come up to the top to mix and mingle as well and introduce people with birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations. The way this is all done is really fun and entertaining from start to finish and time goes by so quickly, it's hard to believe the whole thing takes an hour and 45 minutes. First of all, they set up a check in podium in front of the building out in the street about thirty minutes before your scheduled show and you can check in and get your slip with your seat number on it. Then you wait around and tour the campground until a minute or two before the show starts. There is no need to rush and get in line for thirty minutes as you already have an assigned seat and you aren't going to miss anything so be patient and get in line at the last. When it's time for the show to start, a cast member comes out and rings the dinner bell and yells out something to the effect of dinner's ready. Then when you present your ticket at the door, the host will have you seated at your reserved table. I had a table all to myself as a party of one. There was already a loaf of cornbread and butter on the table along with a salad and a napkin with plates and cutlery waiting. The salad was a mix of lettuce, grape tomatoes, red onion, cucumbers, and tossed in an Italian dressing. The cornbread was delicious and a little sweet just like I like it. The salad was crisp and not soggy from the dressing. They offered soft drinks and even wines and beer for those over 21 who wanted it. This all feels like you are dining in a barn that has been decorated for a dinner show and it's really well done with the theming even down to the mason jar drink glasses and pewter look plates and serving bowls. When you enter, you start eating your salad and bread right away and the server takes your drink orders. After you've had quite a bit of dining time, then the show cast comes in through the main doors singing and dancing and starting off the show portion. They do some songs, dances, and lame jokes and then there is an intermission and the servers bring the barbecued ribs, fried chicken, cut corn, mashed potatoes, ranch style cowboy beans, and all the drinks you want. If you want more of anything just ask and your server will bring it out. The bowls they brought me are the same family size bowls they brought to every table so it was way too much for one person to eat. The ribs were lean and were decent but they could have been a little more tender. The sauce they drizzled on was tangy rather than smoky. The sides got cold fast but it didn't matter as it was all good anyway. The intermission is long enough that you can eat plenty of food and most people were finished before they came out with more songs and dances and jokes. They do involve people from the audience in a silly skit near the end of the show and it's really funny to watch especially when the chosen audience gets into character and then everyone gets to laughing. After the bulk of the show they do my favorite number and that is the one introducing Strawberry Shortcake. The cast does and song and dance and then even the servers come out on stage with the desserts and it's fun how they do that and involve everyone. The strawberry shortcake is quite good and it's a bowl with sliced probably previously frozen strawberries in a sauce on the bottom and then a large sponge cake in the center like an island floating in a sea of strawberry and then on the very top a generous mountain of whipped cream. It's every bit as good as it looks too. I would have preferred fresh strawberries, but it's still good and even though I was full I still ate a little of it. This wasn't like knock your socks off gourmet, it was just home cooking and I liked everything I had. The food itself isn't worth the cost, but you are going for the whole experience and the memories you make that will last a lifetime. The show is silly. There's napkin twirling by the entire audience, foot stomping, hand clapping, and a spoon and washboard finale that everyone can play. It's jolly good fun. The show has some bad bear jokes. This show is not going to appeal to everyone but I thought it was silly fun and entertaining and the time certainly flew by. The food is not anything 5 star, but it's tried and true and most people like it, myself included. I plan on going back on my next visit. It's good old silly fun and comfort food. Now that I have done both category 2 and category 3, I like being upstairs which is category 3 as my view of the entire stage and the floor below is better. It was easier to see the entire goings on and the food was just as tasty from there as it was below in category 2. My server was just as good and kept my drinks full. For a single person this is too much food and I know a lot was wasted, but if you are a big eater or a larger party, this might be a better deal. It's not cheap but you are paying for the whole package not just the food. Like I said, the food itself isn't worth it, if you want great fried chicken go to Art Smith's Homecoming and get it for $26 a person instead, if you want the whole song and dance and atmosphere and being part of the whole story, then that's what you'll get here. It's rowdy good fun. I came out of there smiling and feeling so happy and full. My hands stung from clapping, my voice was hoarse from cheering, singing along, and all else. To sum it all up: Totally satisfactual.
