    Is the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Review appropriate for 3 and 4 year olds?

    Hi, Cristina!

    The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is, like all shows at Walt Disney World, geared towards families. The show is fast-paced and funny, with clever jokes and great singing and dancing. The "storyline" is really secondary to the music, so you don't need to spend your time explaining plot points to the little ones. The jokes do come thick and fast, though, and some of them are pun-based and definitely speak to an older child.

    There is some "flirty" humor, which never crosses into "blue" territory, and there is a little bit of "body humor," but it's nothing inherently objectionable (a little bit of "bathroom humor" goes a long way with a young audience!).

    I'd like to suggest that you take a look at Mickey's Backyard Barbeque Dinner Show, a fun dining experience in the same Western vein as the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. Also located in the Fort Wilderness Campground, this show features several Disney characters and a great deal of audience participation (singing, standing, and so on). Hoop, as it's affectionately called, does not have the same kind of appeal; since its all-human cast is specific to the show, there won't be any "aha!" moments of character recognition.

    This attraction is outdoors, so depending upon the time of year that you are visiting, you'll need to check on its availability by calling (407) WDW-DINE.

    Let me know which one you choose; I'd love to hear your feedback!

    See you later, celebrator,
