    Hi! Love the panel - very informative. Coming to the world in June. Have reserved Mickey's Backyard BBQ. Read various reviews and they seem to be very mixed. It will just be me and my kids, 11 and 9. How chaotic is it at the BBQ?

    Hi Marylin,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  This is a great question, and once that I can only answer with my personal experience.

    When I experienced Mickey's Backyard BBQ I found it to be very loud, what I considered an "unpleasant" loud.  The talent was great, but the acoustics made it difficult to actually hear what people at your own table were saying.  The character appearances with the kids was a huge hit, and the food was great but for small kids trying to maneuver the picnic tables can be difficult.

    Your kids are a bit older, so I would suggest you check out the Hoop-De-Do Musical Review.  This is a blast, and I think it is a fantastic alternative to the BBQ. 

    Hope this helps!
