Since we’ve been hanging out at Fort Wilderness so much lately, it’s only right that I post this flier from 1974. Pioneer Hall had just opened as a dining venue for campground guests; as the flier mentions, it had breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets as well as a snack bar. Most importantly, though, it had the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue that debuted that same year.
Note that in this flier, the new show was still known as the “Pioneer Hall Show”. Also note – brace yourselves – that the price for an adult ticket was $11. $11! Holy smokes. I blame stagflation. And malaise.
D23 has an interesting article on the origins of the show; who knew so many Pioneer Hall vets went on to positions of prominence in the Disney company?
