More on Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue
Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a popular dinner theater show located at Fort Wilderness at Walt Disney World. The show has entertained and fed Guests very well over the years, but the show was closed down due to the ongoing pandemic. Pioneer Hall has not been able to host Guests, and in fall 2020, the cast of Hoop-Dee-Doo was unfortunately laid off.
Previously, Disney Park fans and Guests alike had voiced their sadness about the show potentially not returning but were filled with joy when Disney announced an updated version of the show would be returning very soon.
Disney Parks Blog describes the updates to this show as follows:
This summer, Hoop-Dee-Doo will return bright and fresh with a new audio and lighting system and a few updates to its script and scenery, while staying true to the experience Guests know and love. “We had the unique opportunity to really look at this show and take it to the next level for everyone involved,” David Moore, stage manager, shared. “From switching the stage lighting to LED – which is better for the environment – to upgrading the audio for better sound quality, every little update is leading to a better overall experience for our guests and cast.”
