We’ve been to plenty of character dinners and lunches at the resorts. We’ve also been to the adventure club at the former pleasure Island going all the way back to 1994. But while Running for for 40 years is one we actually haven’t gotten around to. It’s not Trails End but it’s next to what we’re talking about the hoop Dee Doo revue.
So basically what is this? Think of an old times barn dance mixed with a dinner show. Not your typical dinner show food either, it’s country fixins like Fried Chicken, corn bread, salads and the like. You even get a song about while some of the casts actually deliver you your buckets of fried chicken. During dinner there is a 20 min break while everyone enjoys their meal and the piano player keeps going to give you some musical entertainment with your food. Yes the jokes are hokey and cheesy but it’s the atmosphere that makes it all worth it. While not in a park it’s a short bus or boat ride over to Ft. Wilderness for this unique hidden gem.
