    what is the difference between hoop de doo and mickey's back yard bbq?

    Hi Denise,

    Mickey's Backyard BBQ and the Hoop De Doo Revue are two fantastic dinner shows held at Fort Wilderness Campground.  They are both a great way to end a perfect Disney day!  Other than these similarities, however, they are quite different, and here's how:

    Hoop De Doo - it's a country-western variety show, with dancing, singing and stand-up comedians (think slap stick).  While you are being entertained, you dine on all-you-care-to-eat bread (with really good honey butter), salad, fried chicken, ribs, mashed potatoes, beans, and strawberry shortcake.  Soft drinks, beer, wine and sangria are also included.  The show is very entertaining and there's lots of audience participation.  The waiters are a riot too!  This event takes place indoors at the Fort Wilderness Campground.  You will sit at a regular, restaurant-style table.

    Mickey's Backyard BBQ - is held in a giant outdoor pavilion at Fort Wilderness Campground.  In my opinion, this show provides kids (and grown-ups) with unprecedented access to the characters.  While you dine from an all-you-can-eat buffet of picnic food (baked chicken, ribs, cole slaw, hot dogs, watermelon, ice cream bars, lemonade, iced tea, beer, wine) you will watch a number of country-western acts while Disney favorites (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip & Dale) dance along with the audience.  My recommendation here is to eat fast at the beginning of the evening, because once the characters come out, your kids probably won't want to sit down again.  Seating here is at picnic tables (you pick your own table) and you may sit with other families. 

    If you have young children, I would recommend the BBQ over Hoop De Doo, because some of the humor will likely be lost on little ones.  With older kids and/or an adult-only party, I would recommend Hoop De Doo.

    Whichever you chose, have a wonderful evening!
