    Hey Doug, I have been trying for a month to get a Hoop Dee Doo reservation for the week of APril 9-14th. Still no luck. Its my families #1 favorite meal of the week at WDW. Do you have any tips on getting 4 tickets? Its a very special event for us!


    Thanks for sending me your question!

    I feel your pain! The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue has become a standard for all our family vacations, and two trips ago we could not secure a seat either. Unfortunately, they do not have a stand-by line like other restaurants do, since it is a rather unique dining experience. I did just double check based on your travel dates, and I could not find a time either.

    Of course, your first option is to keep checking as the dates get closer. People do cancel their reservations, though with Hoop-Dee-Doo it is rare. The one hope I have for you is that with the Tron attraction being only a week or two old at the time of your visit, some people may cancel on the day of their reservation if they have a ride time for that evening.

    The other choice, which I have no doubt you have thought about, is to find a suitable alternative. I happen to love the Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, and when checking your dates I found dinner times available on every night of your trip. This can be a hard restaurant to score a reservation for, especially at a decent hour, but I found reasonable dining times every single night.

    I did also check Roundup Rodeo BBQ, but it did not have a dinner time available. That is hardly a surprise, since it is the newest restaurant at Walt Disney World, opening less than a month before your visit.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you might not get to go to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue this time around. Certainly, keep checking, especially on that day, but rather than let it spoil your day, you might want to try to find some new tradition to add to your family trips. We recently added Via Napoli to our list of Must-Do dinners! If you want some more suggestions, please do write me back and I will do my best to offer some of my favorites.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
