    Hi Doug, U R GR8! Have ADR 4 HDDR at 7:15 on 7/31, MK EMH until 2am. Will we make it 2 MK for Wishes at 10? Is there a place at FW to watch? Would like go 2 MK and take train 2 Frontierland, worried about crowds. What do you suggest?


    You flatter me (I love that!)!

    So Hoop Dee Doo Review takes about 2 hours. That puts you restaurant departure at around 9:15 pm. Realistically that puts you at the boat dock at about 9:30, at the earliest. With a wait for a boat, and then the boat transportation times, you are probably not going to make it at an optimal time to get a decent spot to watch the show.

    There are a lot of people who talk about who great it is to score one of the few outdoor seats on a boat to watch the fireworks as you boat over to the park from Fort Wilderness, though I have to confess that I have not enjoyed that fun yet.

    If it were me, I would not set my hopes on enjoying Hoop Dee Doo and Wishes in the same evening, though it is a possibility, albeit unlikely. 

    If doing both is an ABSOLUTE MUST, I think your only sure-fire way to do it is to grab a post-dinner cab.

    I hope that this helps!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
