Return of Hoop-Dee-Doo
After hearing many rumors that Hoop-Dee-Doo would not be returning, we were delighted to hear that these were simply rumors. Cast Members were reportedly being called back to return several months ago, which was great news along with more rumors of the show’s return. Then, back in October of 2021, Yehaa Bob shared that the show would return in January.
Walt Disney World announced that this Wild West dinner theatre would be returning very soon. Check out the return date and when you can begin to purchase tickets HERE.
Return with a Few Changes
The Hoop-Dee-Doo stage at the Fort Wilderness has remained dark since 2020 with the park closure. With the reopening of this show, there WILL be some updates to the script and scenery.
This will not be the exact show you are used to. The show is still the same show it’s always been though. Lots of singing, laughs, and good food.
