The usual recommendation is to budget 60-90 minutes to get to most places within WDW. Since you're going to FW for HDDR, which requires riding the internal bus system to get to the back where HDDR is, I'd leave DHS no later than 90 minutes before the ADR.

This may sound excessive, but you have to a) wait for the bus for FW, b) ride to FW, c) get off at the front of FW and wait for an internal bus, d) ride the internal bus back to Settlement Hall where HDDR is. Also, HDDR is one ADR it's always good to be early for, if possible. It can get pretty crowded right before the seating.

Alternate:

Exit DHS at 4:50PM.

Take the bus from DHS to Wilderness Lodge.

Take the shuttle boat from Wilderness Lodge to Ft. Wilderness.
The Ft. Wilderness boat dock is just steps from Pioneer Hall, home of the Hoop.

not much difference in timing and the buses sometimes go to WL first then to FW. also if my memory is correct one of campground buses stops at FW letdriver know you need to stop for Hoop Dee Doo.

I'll offer the alternative of taking the bus to MK or CR and then the boat to FW. I'd say 1 hour and 15 minutes.
