    Hello! We have an upcoming trip at the Bay Lake Tower in May and we are having a tough time deciding between the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show and The Hoopty Doo Revue, we have a 1 year old and 4 year old. Any suggestions?

    Bay Lake Tower is such a great resort choice, Karen.  I bet you're going to have a fabulous stay there!  With regard to the two dinner shows you mention, I definitely would suggest The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue over the Spirit of Aloha Dinner show, based on the ages of your children.  The Hoop-Dee-Doo show tends to be quite rowdy and might be better suited to holding the attention of your little ones.  Do keep in mind that Pioneer Hall can be quite crowded and there really isn't a lot of space for little ones who need to get up a stretch near the table.  We did take my son when he was two and he did just fine in his high chair for the duration of the show.  He has quite an appetite, though, and the food kept him occupied.  For more antsy toddlers, neither show you mention is probably the best idea.  There is a great alternative, though.  Mickey's Backyard BBQ Dinner Show is ideal for kids as young as yours.  Little ones are welcome--encouraged, even--to boogie down with the characters on the dance floor.  You don't have to worry about getting them to sit still; the more foot stompin' the better!  Good luck with your decision.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
