The wait is nearly over! It’s almost time to raise the curtain and bring on the food once again at a true classic at Walt Disney World Resort. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue will soon be opening its doors on June 23 for a musical extravaganza accompanied by your favorite family-style feast. Over at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, you’ll find Pioneer Hall and within its walls the Pioneer Hall Players who are ready to dance and sing their way into your hearts!
The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue plays host to some of the best comfort food around. As the gang brings on the tunes, the servers bring on the food. Not to mention, it’s all-you-care-to-enjoy with fountain drinks and for those over 21, red and white sangria, draft beer, and wine are also included!
Whether you’ve never experienced it before or you’ve been longing for its return, this outing is not one to be missed upon reopening. To learn more about the show, check out this blog post on its evolution and be sure to make a reservation to enjoy every moment, and dish, on your next visit.
Alrighty, it’s showtime! Let’s get into the food and drinks soon to be served up at Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.
Once you sit down, you better have your appetite ready because the feasting begins right off the bat. The Hoop Salad is simple yet incredibly satisfying with the signature “hoop” vinaigrette topped with sharp white cheddar, cucumbers, and tomatoes. If you’re a fellow bread-lover like myself, the House-made Cornbread with delicious honey butter is to die for. You can also nibble on the tasty Creamy Coleslaw before the main course graces your table. Make sure you don’t fill up too much!
Let’s move on to the main course, shall we? Your taste buds are in for a real treat because once you see what dishes will lie before you, you’ll want to chow down immediately! First up, we’ve got the Pecan-smoked BBQ Pork Ribs with BBQ sauce. This dish is a BBQ-lovers dream with delicious flavors that just melt in your mouth. The other main plate is the one, the only – the Legendary Fried Chicken – and it tastes just like how it sounds … legendary. This one is a staple and for good reason!
What dinner is complete without some yummy side dishes? Hoop-Dee-Doo brings its A-game to the stage with its accompaniments. One of my personal favorites, the Cornbread-crusted Macaroni and Cheese is an explosion of flavors in your mouth and truly the ultimate comfort food. If you love potatoes, the Home-style Mashed Potatoes pair perfectly with the fried chicken and pork ribs. And rounding out the sides is a classic – Cowboy Beans because you can’t have some BBQ without some beans!
And now for the grand finale, the delectable ‘Ma’s Famous Strawberry Shortcake topped with whipped cream and strawberries. This can’t-miss dessert is a staple of Pioneer Hall and is the perfect way to finish up your foodie evening.
If you have any dietary needs or restrictions for any of these eats, don’t worry. Just let the chef know when you check-in and they’ll get you an alternative dish that’s just as delicious to enjoy while watching the show!
Now that we’ve talked about the food, we’ve got to discuss the drinks! In addition to the included beverages you can enjoy, there are a few new adult beverage options you can sip on for an added cost. Wet your whistle with the new The Giddy-Up cocktail featuring the hall barkeep’s blend of Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Minute Maid Premium Lemonade, and freshly brewed iced tea. You can also choose from an assortment of locally crafted beers including Tampa Bay Brewing Elephant Foot IPA, Cigar City Jai Alai IPA, Cigar City Maduro Brown Ale, Orange Blossom Pilsner, Central 28 UnderDuck Lager, and 3 Daughters Brewing Blonde Ale.
If you weren’t excited already for Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue to return, I sure do hope you are now! June 23 will be well worth the wait.
