    HI! Do you think a 5 year old girl would enjoy the Hoop dee do review or dinner at Ohanas better? I can't decide which to do. HELP?

    Hi, Kathie!  My kids all LOVED the Hoop Dee Do when they were that age!  The music and slapstick comedy was just perfect for them, and they loved the food, which was not too unfamiliar for kids.  Fried chicken, ribs, and strawberry shortcake all passed the test of kid approval among my gang.

    I have to say, they have also loved 'Ohana, and with the kids activities often thrown in during dinner, such as hula hooping and coconut races, it can make the evening fun.  But if your kids tend to get a bit fidgety during a dinner, I'd say Hoop Dee Do provides more entertainment and a set schedule for the evening.  

    You can't go wrong either way - you just want to take into consideration your kids' preferences!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
