Review: Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

Review: Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a vaudeville style comedy show located in Pioneer Hall at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. It is considered the longest running musical in the country. Performing three times a day, seven days a week. The entire experience lasts 2 hours and features a rollicking interactive show and copious amounts of fried foods.

The Show
The show itself features the Pioneer Hall Players, an archetypal group of characters who are in town to perform a special show for you. The comedy in the show is very much in the Disney style. If you aren't a fan of corny jokes then this will not be for you. Most of Disney isn't really for you in that case. I loved every bit of it especially the comedic foil to the group, Six Bits Slocum. There is a large amount of audience participation during the show, including inviting guests up on the main stage. If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or any other special event this would be a fun way to be in the spotlight and to make it a little more special.

New Concept Art and Details Released for Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows as Sales Begin Soon

The new Bungalows at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort have to be the most anticipated and desirable locations to stay in Walt Disney World. For me anyway. While I won't be staying there anytime soon, the new concept art Disney has released is just as tantalizing.

Sales for the new DVC property will begin on January 12th for DVC members and everyone else can pick the scraps on February 9th. The first phase of opening is scheduled for April 1st which will include the 20 Bora Bora bungalows and the less exciting regular villas that include the first connecting deluxe studios. Disney also showed off some concept art for the redesigned feature pool.

Disney's Contemporary Resort Theme Park View Room Tour

On my recent trip to Disney World I was fortunate enough to spend just one night at the Contemporary in a theme park view. The view was excellent and worth the price of the room alone. I can't say the furnishings and amenities of the room itself were any better than other normal hotels I've stayed at.
