Unlimited draft beer, wine, sangria and soft drinks are included for Guests 21 years of age or older (proper ID required). Celebrations are acknowledged in the show.As the performance rounds out, you may be asked to join in the finale—a musical tribute to Davy Crockett.

“Fun for the whole family”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband and I and our five year old daughter really enjoyed this. The setting is beautiful -- we took the boat from the Contemporary hotel where we were staying. I felt like I was at a national park campground! Pioneer Hall, which is where the show takes place, is a log cabin style building. We had excellent seats, I think because we reserved so early. The show is corny in a good way. Our daughter was entertained the entire time, and she is not one to focus on things for very long. The food was fine. We requested macaroni and cheese for our daughter because she didn't care for the other sides (mashed potatoes and bbq beans). I had a glass of wine which I expected to be charged for but I learned at the end that it was included as part of the meal so that was a pleasant surprise. The meal plus show costs two table service credits if you're on the disney dining plan. Although the food was no-frills the show is what really makes the experience here. The meal is choreographed in to the show. We would definitely like to do this again in the future!

“Classic Disney food and entertainment”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

My wife and children, ages 13 and 11, always kick-off our Disney vacation with this event. This year, the show has changed. Still similar, still country/bluegrass style show, with corny Davy Crockett skit, but all-in-all, good clean fun and good food. Fried chicken is good, and ribs are decent (wet ribs, served already covered in BBQ sauce), corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and cowboy style baked beans. Service was good, probably an A-, and dinner was good, probably a B+ or so. Nonstop fun and entertainment from the moment you arrive. My kids still insist that we kick-off our family vacation with this activity, even though they have seen the show 7-8 times. Great family meal and entertainment. It is true that getting to this location can be difficult, but planning ahead solves this issue. There is both Disney bus and boat service to Fort Wilderness, driving to this event would be my last option.

“Cornpone Heaven”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Once is enough for this kooky, slapstick, throwback to a bad sideshow performance.
That Disney continues to sell out these shows is a tribute to their customer's appreciation for the
corniest form of talent and humor.
The customers are spending some serious coin because the cost of this show has gone through the roof.
The food is literally thrown at you as the servers attack the tables in formation.
This is not good barbeque, most of the side dish players were mediocre.
Save your DDP credits for some real food. Ohana and Boma are one full service meal each and they are of much better quality.
