Mickey's Backyard Barbecue (Seasonal)

Description from PassPorter's Walt Disney World Guidebook:

This old-fashioned, open-air barbecue features good ol’ Disney characters (Minnie, Mickey, Goofy, Chip, and Dale), live country music, carnival games, and line dancing. Vittles include chicken, hot dogs, ribs, salads, corn, cole slaw, beans, vegetables, rolls, and (of course!) watermelon—all served buffet-style at picnic tables under a huge pavilion. Includes all-you-can-drink soft drinks and beer. Shows are at 5:30 pm on Thursdays and Saturdays (January and February) and on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays (March through December). Cost: $56.99/adults and $32.99/ kids 3–9 (prices include all taxes and gratuities). Call 407-WDW-DINE to inquire about availability and make reservations up to 180 days in advance. Full payment is required with your reservations, refundable up to 48 hours in advance, unless you’re on a dining plan.

To get to the Backyard Barbecue, take the boat to Fort Wilderness from the Magic Kingdom, Contemporary, or Wilderness Lodge. Special buses run to and from some resorts, or take any Fort Wilderness-bound theme park bus. Driving (parking is free) is an option, too. The Hoop-Dee-Doo is in Pioneer Hall; Backyard Barbecue is next door to Pioneer Hall (around back). Allow 60 to 90 minutes for travel.
