Mickey’s Backyard BBQ will likely have it’s final performance on Dec 31 2018, as the resort moves ahead with Disney Vacation Club additions.

At this time Hoop Dee Doo will remain, and there are plans to bring a similar Backyard BBQ experience back at a later date.

Disney is yet to make any official announcements on any closures or DVC additions at Fort Wilderness.

It used to be seasonal but for the last 3 years or so it had been year-round.

They didn’t hang about

All props, themeing, audio and lighting equipment have been removed. Tables have started to be removed and walls will be up soon.

Yeah, and maybe a dinner show themed around a 1930's global exploration society...

Hope it comes back bigger and better than before. I enjoy the dinner shows. I think Disney should have a few more. I'd love to see a Victorian Era styled show at the GF, and/or a Speakeasy/Prohibition type show on the Boardwalk (not necessarily talking a gangster theme - although some elements would be alluded to). I think there is a lot they could do with those.

I hope it comes back. These videos make me sad. We went during my daughter’s first trip and it was her favorite thing. We planned on going back 😔. Hopefully it comes back in some form. Thanks for posting!

I didn't know they still did this. I thought it ended years ago!
