Hey Joh,
I sure wish I was sitting on the boat dock at WL right now

I am sure you will enjoy CP, when are you going?

Oh, and I love your photo of an empty Main Street! It sure pays to get there early.
Hey, if you can't eat what you want on vacation when can you?

Hoop Dee Doo Review

Tuesday 24th May 2011 Continued

Hi everyone

Thanks for sticking with me during this rather lengthy Dinning Review

The finishing post is in sight; I promise

Tonight we were excited to be heading to Fort Wilderness for our first time at The Hoop Dee Doo Review

It was a beautiful evening and after a relaxing boat trip from the Wilderness Lodge we arrived at Pioneer Hall in plenty of time to check in for the 7.15pm show

After we had checked in and had our picture taken (the photos are offered to you for purchase when you are seated) we took a seat on the rocking chairs on the veranda of Crockett’s Tavern to enjoy a cold drink before we were seated

We waited for a while after the dinner gong had sounded until the crowds had died down and then headed in to Pioneer Hall where we were led to a wonderful table just a couple of rows from the stage

I’d only reserved Category 2 seating as we were going to be using the dining plan but this was an excellent table with a great view

Waiting for us on the table were some delicious corn bread and salad

Corn Bread, Salad & Butter

Hoop Dee Doo Salad

Hoop Dee Doo Corn Bread

Our server came by to take our drink orders; Coke for DH and a glass of Merlot for me


Now this wasn’t the best glass of Merlot I had ever drank but it was an unlimited supply so I wasn’t complaining

Just before our drinks arrived the Chef stopped by at our table to speak to me as I had noted on my reservation that I didn’t eat meat

He asked if I would be happy with Salmon for my entrée. I love salmon so was very happy with this as an option

Now it seems to me that even though I wasn’t eating any of the meat dishes we were still served enough for two people so DH probably consumed his own body weight in Chicken and Ribs tonight

OK, loosen your belts people, this is a lot of food

Hoop Dee Doo Chicken

DH absolutely loved this and nearly ate the whole bucket full!

Hoop Dee Doo Ribs

Again DH loved these, he probably ate more of the Chicken than the Ribs but he still thought they were very good

Hoop Dee Doo Mash

What do they put in this stuff?? On second thoughts I don’t want to know

This was the most creamy, fluffy, delicious mash ever!

Hoop Dee Doo Vegetables

I don’t think DH touched these but I did and they were yummy, I think they were roasted with honey as they had a lovely sweet taste to them

Hoop Dee Doo Beans

I love beans but couldn’t eat these as they had pulled pork in them , DH isn’t much of a fan and when I asked him about them he couldn’t even remember trying them

Here is my entrée

Hoop Dee Doo Salmon – Portobello Mushroom, Roasted Zucchini, Roasted Red Onion

The Salmon was wonderful, it had a slight char to it which I really enjoyed and the vegetables were perfectly cooked; a big thumbs up from me

We had made reservations for the Hoop Dee Doo in order to see the show and hadn’t really expected much from the food but we were pleasantly surprised

The service was really good and drinks were regularly topped up and let’s not forget you are being entertained with a wonderful show whilst you are enjoying your dinner

The Hoop Dee Doo Review was a ton of fun, we laughed all night and if you get into the spirit of things you will have a really great night out

Me: 'Do You Do Requests?'
DH: 'I Sure Do'
Me: 'Perfect .... Could You Go And Play That Outside'

The grand finale of your meal is dessert which is accompanied by its very own ‘theme’ song. All of the servers appear on the stage holding the sweet treats before heading over to their respective tables to present them to the guests

Whole Strawberry Shortcake

Cut Strawberry Shortcake

We were already full but this was so delicious we just had to dig in

It was a dessert worthy of its very grand entrance

Top marks for Hoop Dee Doo all round from us; it was a really fun night and the food was surprisingly good

We were so stuffed full when we left Pioneer Hall it’s a wonder the boat didn’t capsize on the way back to WL!!

Coming Up Next ……….. Can We Eat More Than An Elephant At Animal Kingdom?

Too funny!

I have never tried HDDR, but after reading your review it definitely looks like a good place to try. I'm sure this would be a meal my whole family would love!

Love your review of CP and that cookie sandwich looks delish - I guess I need to treat myself to one in 2 months.

We have never been to HDDR but the food definitely looks yummy! I would have happily eaten your salmon dish as well!

Hoop De Doo sounds like it's a lot of fun, and that dessert looks tasty! I'm just not a huge fan of those comfort foods like fried chicken and ribs, so I'm not sure it's something I'd do any time soon. Your salmon, on the other hand, looked pretty good!

Those potatoes look delicious! I think I would skip the chicken and the ribs and just gorge myself on those!
