    Hello! I had a question about seating for the Hoop De Doo Review. I was planning on purchasing the Tier 1 tickets. Do we need to get there early to find great seats or are seats already assigned based on our reservation? Thank you!!!


    I've enjoyed the Hoop Dee Doo Revue several times and every time we've been assigned our table. For a family like mine that can struggle to be on time, this was good news. When Disney tells you to be there 45 minutes ahead of time, they are encouraging you to do so if you are getting your tickets at Will Call (which only took us 5 minutes) and to allow time to get your picture made prior to the dinner and scanned to your Magic Band. The extra time will also allow you to slow down and enjoy your surroundings from the play ground to the nearby Settlement Trading Post. 

    I encourage everyone to get at least Category 2 seats as some folks simply can't see all of the show from the Category 3 seats in the balcony, so you are good to go with wanting to book Category 1. Additionally, the earlier you make your reservations, I have found, the better the table in your category. The year I made my Category 1 seating at 180 days out from the show, we were seated at one of the very first tables down front with a fabulous view of the stage.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
