    Never gone to Hoop-Dee-Doo. This year my 17 year old and 13 year old may be interested in going. Is the how good for teens?

    Hi there:

    The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue is a wonderful family experience. HDD is one of Disney World's longest running dinner shows, and it's easy to understand why. The show is entertaining, the cast is talented, the atmosphere is festive, the jokes are plentiful (and corny), and the food is finger-licking tasty. However, if there is one audience segment that may not appreciate the show's humor, it may be the teenage audience. While I highly recommend the show, without knowing your kids, I'll give you some highlights to help you decide whether the experience is right for your family.

    HDD is a vaudeville-style dinner show with a country twist. Dinner is served family style and includes favorites like fried chicken, smoked bbq pork ribs, fresh corn bread, strawberry shortcake and the most delicious country-style baked beans I have ever tasted. The food and most drinks are all-you-can-consume, so your party, including your teens, will leave satisfied.

    As you enjoy the food, the extraordinary HDD cast puts on a show full of dancing, singing, and comedy. While looking around the audience, I always see everyone having a good time, including teenagers. However, due to the corny humor and the old-fashioned country-western style music, I can imagine there being a handful of teenagers and young adults who may feel they are too cool for the show and the jokes. HDD is very interactive and the cast frequently takes the show from the stage and into the audience to sing songs and engage the guests. Towards the end of the performance, a handful of lucky audience members are asked to join the show for the grand finale.

    I highly recommend the show and have seen teenagers in the audience really enjoying every second of the experience. But due to the corny humor, teenagers may take a bit longer to warm up to the show. Personally, I love HDD, and hope you decide the show is right for your family.
