The Walt Disney World Cast and Community Facebook page shared photos of the original cast with the caption: “We recently honored the original 1974 cast of Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness. Their intern-led show became a permanent fixture and one of America’s longest-running dinner shows!”

Six people stand in a line in front of a red curtain, smiling and posing with one leg lifted, reminiscent of a Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue performance.

The show debuted on June 30, 1974, with a cast of Disney World Fine Arts College Workshop summer interns. The former interns danced on the stage again and met the Cast Members who now portray Six Bits Slocum, Dolly Drew, Jim Handy, Flora Long, Johnny Ringo, and Claire de Lune.

Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a two-hour dinner show performed three times nightly on Wednesdays through Sundays. Special Hoop-Dee-Doo 50th anniversary merchandise is available to purchase across from Pioneer Hall at Settlement Trading Post.
