Disney's Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

My husband and I had the opportunity to attend the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue dinner show held at the Fort Wilderness Resort. We had a wonderful time! This show is the longest running dinner show at Walt Disney World. It has a Country & Western feel that just might set your foot to tapping or even stomping! The entertainment  is top notch. There is a lot of singing, dancing and of course plenty of corny jokes.

The dinner menu consists of all-you-care-to-eat fried chicken, smoked BBQ pork ribs, seasonal vegetable, baked beans and corn bread. Strawberry shortcake is served for dessert. I must admit that while dessert is usually my favorite part of any meal, I had my doubts that this dessert would match the quality of the meal. I was afraid it would be like the soggy yellow type cake with watery strawberries spooned over it that I have been served in restaurants (non Disney related) before.  I am happy to say I was wrong and enjoyed every bite!   The food is served in between the the singing and dancing of the cast. At times you will see the guests having such a great time they can't help but stand and twirl their red gingham napkins over their heads and join in with the laughter and fun. 
During the final musical number the servers hand out washboards to the guests. They encourage you to take a "clean" spoon and help the band out with some added rhythm. I must admit that along with the strawberry shortcake this was one of my favorite parts of the show!

Disney's Magical Express

Want an easy and free way to get from the Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World? Disney has made a way! If you are a guest at one of the  Disney  Resorts then you qualify for free ground transportation on the Disney's Magical Express to and from the resorts. Once advance reservations are made you will receive a booklet in the mail with luggage tags that you will place on each piece of luggage. When you arrive at the airport you will make you way down to Disney's Welcome Center on level 1, side B. After checking in you will be directed as to where you need to wait for the next bus leaving for your resort. 

There are no worries about your checked luggage as it will be pulled for you and delivered free of charge to your hotel room! I always feel that once I step onto the Magical Express Bus my vacation has truly begun! The bus will deliver you to the doorstep of your resort. Upon checking in you are then free to hit the parks with the knowledge that your luggage will be waiting for your when you return. No worries...I like that!

Minnie Mouse Is a Quilter

Yes! Minnie Mouse is a Quilter just like me! I was thrilled to be able to visit Minnie's quilting studio.  As you can see here I am admiring her latest creative endeavor.  She is one busy gal!

Displayed on the wall is her quilt that won a first place blue ribbon at the county fair! 

Minnie allows daily visits to all who would like to see what she is currently working on. Minnie's studio is located in her home (a.k.a. Minnie's Country Home) in Mickey's Toontown Fair at Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom.

If you would like to visit Minnie's studio I would love to help with your travel plans! Please click here to ask for a free, no obligation quote for your next trip! And by the way, you do not have to pay a penny for my travel services, Disney does! It's not to early to start planning your next trip to a  Disney destination!

Editors Note:  Mickey's Toontown Fair is no longer open due to construction at the park. I hope Minnie's quilts are displayed at another area soon! :)
