hoop de do closing

I have heard the Hoop De Do Review at Fort Wilderness will be closing at the end of the year along with Trails End to make room for more DVC only areas, This means the beach and boat access will only be for DVC members only. So unfair to FW campers who love the campground.

I really doubt this is true... who did you hear this from/how does that make sense in any way, shape, or form?

I know some cast members that are there and they were telling me this. They were very upset.

But they're still taking reservations b/c I've got one in Feb. So I sure hope not!

I haven't heard that, and I seriously doubt it. What I did hear from a tour guide was that they could do something DVC or pirate related with River Country and the old Discovery Island.

Not believing this rumor at all. They wouldn't restrict the beach and boat access to DVC members only. They've never done this at any of the DVC properties.

While they may be considering a DVC property there, Disney hasn't announced anything about it officially. Since the DVC at GF isn't even open yet, they won't be announcing anything new for a while. Even when they do, it doesn't mean the next one would be at FW. They could easily build elsewhere.

There have been rumors for about a year that Disney is considering builidng another DVC between the Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness. When Eisner was CEO, there was another resort planned near Wilderness Lodge named Buffalo Junction which was similiar in design to Hotel Cheyenne at Disneyland Paris. Supposedly Disney has dusted off plans for Buffalo Junction and it may be built as a DVC. I can't imagine that Hoop-De-Doo would be closed.

Construction will not start until at least the Grand Flo DVC is completed. Thee are also rumors that the Poly is slated for DVC units in the future.

I can't imagine they would close down HDDMR. It's too popular and I don't think Disney would want to decrease the number of dinner shows available. If they do proceed with DVC at Ft Wilderness, they would move HDDMR to another location, not close it down completely.

I'm a DVC member so I try to keep up to date on DVC happenings. I did read that a DVC resort would be built in Ft. Wilderness but then I later read the plans were scrapped. I never saw any mention of closing HDDR, though.

Of course, if the GF DVC sells out fast, I'm sure they will revisit those plans.

Don't under-estimate the level of their control and power, for they are many...

Have you ever been to the Hotel Cheyenne? It is pretty weak. Definitely a notch below the All Stars. I can't imagine any DVC members being satisfied with that.
