More Walt Disney World Resort Stories

Be a Happy Camper with Limited-Release Shirts Coming to Disney Parks Online Store on April 27

T-shirts celebrating two long-time favorite destinations at Walt Disney World Resort will be featured this month on the Disney Parks online store.


From April 27 to May 3, we are releasing T-shirts for adults, women and kids inspired by Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, and one of the longest-running dinner shows in American history – Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. These vintage-style T-shirts were designed by Disney Design Group artist Richard Terpstra.


Richard told me that the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue shirt was inspired by some of the classic themed posters found around the stage area at Pioneer Hall. If you want a great look back at this dinner show, I invite you to read this article from last September by my fellow author Pam Brandon.


One of my favorite details that Richard included in the artwork is the small “Florida” flag above the Walt Disney World Resort logo. This flag reminds me of early 1970s merchandise for the “Vacation Kingdom of the World” like the postcard shown above from my personal collection.

The adults and women’s shirts will be printed on a Hanes Nano, while the kids’ shirts will be a Hanes Beefy-T.
Guests can find these limited release T-shirts online only starting April 27 at


  • Can these t-shirts still be purchased? I would love to have one!

  • I MUST get one of the Hoop-De-Doo shirts for my daughter! She wants to go back and eat there for her birthday!!

  • Furthering on @Matthew’s question… Will the shirts be carried in the Ft Wilderness stores after May 3rd?

    • @Cynthia – These shirts will only be found online. No plans to carry them at the Resort.

  • Really wish the adult shirt was also on Beefy-T. Not a fan of the nano/thin material type shirts

  • Love the retro-themed stuff as well! That Hoop Dee Doo shirt might be a must-buy for me.

  • Will these be available at the campground, or only online? I love the Hoop Dee Doo ones

  • LOVE theses retro shirts coming out – I hope Mr. Terpstra is hard at work on my JP & The Silver Stars Concert T…

  • James’ wife here – OH MY GOODNESS!!! We love eating at the Trail’s End at Fort Wilderness, and will be in just over a couple of weeks! Must try to get one of the Happy Camper tees before we head down to WDW!! Super cute.
    Thanks!! 🙂

    • @James’ Wife – Safe travels 🙂
