    I know the tip is usually included for Hoop-Dee-Doo... will an additional gratuity be charged for our party of 7?

    Howdy, Keisha!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for bringing your question to us. Some of my very favorite Walt Disney World vacations have been with large parties – whether you have a large family, are traveling with extended family, or a special group of friends, more people means more laughter and fun, and I’m all about that! 

    When making a reservation for a Walt Disney World Resort dinner show, Guests are required to pay in full at the time of reservation. The amount charged per person for the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue includes the meal, tax, and a gratuity of 18%. Because the gratuity is already covered, you won’t need to pay an additional tip at the time of the show, even with a party of 6 or more. Having said that, if you experience fantastic service, you’re welcome to leave an additional gratuity if you’d like.

    I hope you have a rootin’ tootin’ good time at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Keisha! Not only will you get to enjoy course after course of mouthwatering, all-you-care-to-enjoy American classics, but you’ll be laughing, clapping, and singing along with the amazing performers. I love this Disney Parks Blog story and video celebrating the show’s history and heart, and I hope you do too! 

    Make sure you save room for the strawberry shortcake. It is so, so delicious, and you’ll be singing the song that accompanies the dessert for days afterward! Enjoy every bite and every laugh!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
