    If I take a boat from Contemporary or Wilderness Lodge to Hoop-Dee-Doo, what is the typical wait/trip? Might I be fined for resort-parking for 3 hours+ if I'm not staying on-site? Or could my TIW card get me free valet parking there for Hoop-Dee-Doo?

    Hi Steven!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thanks for stopping by to ask a wonderful question about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World.   I hope you and your crew have a fabulous time at your Dinner Show.  It's my pleasure to help you out today.

    Boats run from both Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Contemporary Resort to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground where the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is located.  The boats run from these Resorts to the campgrounds from early in the morning until late evening.  Typical wait time is depending on where the boat is when you arrive at the dock.  The trip takes about 15 minutes, but you may may wait 15 minutes if a boat has just departed.  As for parking at either Disney's Contemporary Resort or Disney's Wilderness Lodge you would not be able to since your dining reservation is at a restaurant located at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort,  you would be able to park at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground and take the Internal shuttle to the Settlement are of the Resort where the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue takes place.

    I hope this has helped.  Please let me know if I can answer anything else for you.  It's always fun to help out fellow Guests.
