    We want to see the fireworks show at the end of the day we stay at MK...and have reservations for 8:30 at Hoop Dee Doo... Is 15 minutes enough time to get there by boat? Also, what happens if we arrive late to the show? Thanks!

    Hi Karen! Fifteen minutes would not be enough time to get to the Fort Wilderness to see the great Hoop Dee Doo. You might have a 15 minute wait for the boat to even be at the Magic Kingdom and the ride is 15 minutes itself. Once you arrive you will have a five minute walk to the Pioneer Hall. The show begins right away and the food is not long after so its best not to be late.

    My suggestion is to head to Fort Wilderness to watch the fireworks from the beach there. They pipe in the music and you can see most of the fireworks with the exception of the lower ones on the castle. It is better to be safe and miss a little of the fireworks then to miss the great Hoop Dee Doo show.
