Hoop dee doo review? Give me tips please.

We are finally going to do Hoop Dee Doo review! We are staying offsite and will have our own car. Our seating is at 4pm, so I want to go to the MK afterwards. Would you suggest we park at the TTC and boat back and forth to Fort Wilderness?

We also have photopass plus, isn't the picture including then?

Any tips? Especially travel and timing suggestions? Thanks!

You will love HDDR!! It has become a must do for us since my first time there in September!

You could do that and take the boat, but you should have another option just incase. But it seems like a good idea if you want to hit up MK right after. We were going from BLT in September so we planned to just take the boat from CR to FW... and then a thunderstorm rolled in so they closed the boats down. We had to take a taxi over in order to get there in enough time. It was only a 5 minute ride so it wasn't bad but our plan to take the boat didn't work out. Now when you get to Fort Wilderness you have to get on a bus and it will take you to the stop where you will walk to Pioneer Hall to check in. It was kind of confusing to me, but I was going with a family who does this show every single trip! Enjoy it.. it really is amazing, the food and the show!

Yes if you have photopass+ the picture can be put on your photopass+ card for no additional charge. Be sure you get there at least 45 minutes early because there may be a long line for the picture taking.

We always take the boat. You will have a blast. Some of our most memorable times were at the HDR. The boat ride back was so convenient. I would get there early for the boat ride over as I remember it being very crowded.

We loved it! My favorite picture of our last trip is my 7 YO son laughing during the show. We took the boat from MK. Hope you have a great time!

Coming from POR you can take the boat to DtD then the bus to fort wilderness OR take the bus to Mk and the boat to fort Wilderness.
