    Hi!! we will be staying at AKL and have booked 4pm Hoop De Doo Revue. It is our first day so heading straight to Hoop in the afternoon and then going to MK / Happily Ever After. What is Best way to get to Hoop and then to MK? Thanks

    Welcome, Michelle!

    The last time my family and I stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, we had reservations at Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue too! Both are some of our favorite parts of the Walt Disney World Resort! You'll adore your stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and the extra opportunities to view the animals, either right off your own balcony if you have one of those rooms, or from one of the many outdoor viewing stations around the resort. It's such a special resort!

    Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue is a hoot! I was pulled up on stage during our last meal there to participate. I won't tell you which character I played, because I don't want to ruin the surprises you'll experience, but let's just say, I was in a costume that had my whole family rolling with laughter! What a fun experience! I hope someone in your party might get to participate too. It sure makes the night even more memorable!

    The easiest way to use Disney's Transportation get from Animal Kingdom Lodge to the Hoop-De-Doo Revue at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campgrounds is to take one of the Disney buses from your resort to Magic Kingdom. Then, walk over to the boat ramp outside Magic Kingdom and take the boat to Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground (not the Fort Wilderness Lodge boat). This ride will land you right at the Settlement Area where you'll find Pioneer Hall for the dinner show. The boat will be the quickest way back to Magic Kingdom after your dinner too.

    Be sure to leave plenty of time, maybe a bit over an hour or more to make your way from Animal Kingdom Lodge to Magic Kingdom and then to Pioneer Hall. You'll be happy to arrive early and wander the grounds before Hoop-De-Doo Revue begins, but if your transportation is running later, then you'll still arrive on time if you leave early enough.

    Have so much fun!
