    Hi Panel! About Hoop Dee Doo: I read that you can make ADR's 2 yrs prior.True?Also, when making a reservation, it says Advanced Payment Required. How does that work if I'm planning on using DDP credits, but am waiting to see if free dining is offered? TIA!

    Hi, Kelly!  I seem to remember hearing that same thing about reservations for the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue in the past.  According to the website, though, reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.  For guests who plan to use dining plan credits to cover the cost of the meal, the reservation agent who assists you can tie your dining reservation in with your dining plan.  In that case, you would need only place a credit card on file to secure the reservation against cancellation.  If your dining plan has not yet been booked, you would need to prepay for the Hoop-Dee-Doo and then call back once your dining plan has been purchased, at which point the reservation agent would attempt to re-book the meal for you.  If reservations for the same time and date are no longer available, you would need to address the situation on site and request to use dining plan credits and have your credit card refunded.  In that case, it would be important to ensure that you book seating in either category 2 or 3 because category 1 seating is only available for dining plan guests who attend the 8:30 show.  I hope that makes sense.  Basically, the most convenient way to do it is book the dining plan prior to booking your Hoop-Dee-Doo reservations.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
