It is a special day for one of Walt Disney World’s real treasures. The original Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue had its first performance 40 years ago today. For 10s of thousands of performances, guests have been coming to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort to be entertained by some of Disney’s best performers.
