    Hi! Almost time to do ADR for Oct. WOOHOO! Considering a dinner show to start our week, arrive in Orlando at 2:10pm and will take Magic Express to Pop. What time would be a safe seating for Hoop Dee Doo? Thanks so much! Love the panel!


    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel!  Our family just loves the Hoop dee Doo Musical Revue--and what a great idea to start off your vacation with it!

    I usually allow at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours from the time my plane lands to get to my resort and check-in.  Conservatively, this would put you there around 4 p.m.  The best route to get from the Pop Century Hotel to Hoop dee Doo in Pioneer Hall at Fort Wilderness is to take a bus to Magic Kingdom and then the boat to the pier at Fort Wilderness.  This will take about 45 minutes plus the 5 minute walk from the pier to Pioneer Hall.

    At this point, we're pushing it for the 5:00 p.m. show, so I'd aim for the second show at 7:15 p.m.  This way, you'll have time to look around your resort and also take in Fort Wilderness.  Keep in mind that the first two shows are the most popular, so be ready to make your reservation at the 90-day mark at 407-939-3463.

    After the show, you can head back over to the beach and pier for the water pageant and maybe even catch the Magic Kingdom fireworks!  Talk about a kickoff to the week!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
