    my husband and I are bringing our 4 yr old granddaughter and her dad Nov 22-25...we have Thurs eve dinner reservations at hoop-dee-do but i'm wondering if mickey's bbq would have been a better choice with the characters. thoughts???

    Hi there Joy,

    If I had the choice, I would hands down choose Hoop-De-Doo over Mickey's Backyard BBQ.  Although it is fun to mingle and boogie with the characters at Mickey's Backyard BBQ, I find it to be more geared toward the little ones while Hoop-De-Doo is a show that the entire family will enjoy from beginning to end!

    In my opinion, Hoop-De-Doo is the best choice for guests of all ages and my family has made this dinner show an annual "must do" since my little princess was four.  We just went there again last month, she's 5 now, and she laughed the entire time!  I can still remember seeing that smiling little face across the table!

    I also prefer the "fixins" at Hoop-De-Doo to those at Micjey's Backyard BBQ.  The food at Hoop-De-Doo is served family style and the meal includes sangria and beer for the adults as well!  The show itself will have your feet stomping and you are guaranteed to laugh until you cry!  It truly is fun for the entire family!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
