    I can't wait for our family's 1st visit in June! Would Fantasmic or the Hoop Dee Doo Dinner Show be more entertaining for my kids (DS6 & DD4)? Love the panel - a tremendous help to 1st time planners!

    Oh, Jennifer!

    You have just mentioned two of my FAVORITE shows ever! How am I to choose?!

    The Hoop Dee Doo is an interactive musical dinner show. If you want some quality family time, some shared laughs and inside jokes, this is where you want to go! Plus, the food--baked beans, fried chicken and cornbread! YUM.

    Fantasmic is a breathtaking, enthralling stage show! You will see a huge amount of characters, special effects, fireworks and feel immersed in many of your favorite movies. If you want to have your mind blown with beauty and excitement--this is the show for you!

    The other things to think about is price---the Hoop Dee Doo is a meal so it's going to cost you. And you'll have to make reservations. Fantasmic is included in the price of your ticket to Hollywood Studios but you do need to get there about an hour early to get a good seat.

    Also, Hoop Dee Doo is indoors & has nothing scary. Fantasmic is outside and has some scary parts.

    Honestly, if I had to choose I'd go with Hoop Dee Doo. Wait, Fantasmic. No. I think Hoop Dee Doo. Or maybe...
