    Why can't I make a reservation at Hoop De Doo for more than 5 people. There are 8 people in my family and I don't want to be divided into 2 groups that defeats the purpose of enjoying family time.

    Hiya Gail,

    Giddy up and welcome to planDisney! I’m sure you were just as excited as we were to hear that one of Disney’s most beloved dinner shows was re-opening. I can’t wait to see all of the pictures when Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue opens next week!

    I’m sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulty making a reservation for you and your family for your August vacation. In my experience, you should be able to make a reservation for Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue for your entire party, but I wanted to verify that. Family time is critical, so if we can get your whole party seated together, that is the ultimate goal. I reached out to a Cast Member, and they think they may have figured out where the difficulty is. Due to the popularity of Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review and the limited reservations available, they are likely unable to accommodate a party of 8 for the dates you are trying to reserve. So essentially, it has more to do with insufficient space available for the particular date than your party size. If your itinerary is flexible, I suggest trying to see if you have better luck on a different date or time. You can also check back later to see if space opens up to accommodate your larger party. Since you have to pre-pay for Hoop-Dee-Doo, to avoid cancellation fees, reservations will become available as Guests change their plans, and you can take advantage of that.

    I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful, Gail. I have one last suggestion, although I know it might not be the most ideal. If you really want to do Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review, and you can make two reservations for a party of 5 and a party of 3 at the moment, I would recommend doing so. If a reservation becomes available that can accommodate all eight of you seated together during your dates later, you can update your reservation.

    I wish you all the best luck making your reservation for Hoop-Dee-Doo Review!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
