    We are going to WDW next April and taking our two grand daughters, age 8 &4, plus their parents, we want to go to a dinner show , whats best for our family, Hoop de Doo or Mickeys Barbecue?

    Hi Geoffrey,

    Both the Hoop De Doo Revue and Mickey's Backyard BBQ are a great way to end the perfect Disney Day with your grandchildren and family.  The Hoop De Doo Revue is a fun dinner show.  It's interactive, includes lots of slap stick comedy and some wonderful musical numbers.  In my opinion, however, this particular dinner show is a bit more suited to kids who are slightly older than your grandchildren (especially, the four-year-old).  For young kids, I recommend Mickey's Backyard BBQ, which, like Hoop De Doo, is held at Fort Wilderness Campground.  The BBQ takes place at a huge, covered pavilion and features a Country Western Band.  During the show, Disney Characters, including Mickey, Minnie, Goofy Chip and Dale hit the dance floor along with the audience.  In my opinion, this show offers unprecedented access to the characters.  I have some amazing photos of my kids "cutting a rug" with their favorite Disney pals.  The menu includes baked chicken, ribs, hot dogs, corn on the cob, baked beans, corn bread, watermelon, beer, wine, dessert and soft drinks.  Seating is open, on large picnic-style tables.

    Both dinner shows are fabulous, but for younger children, Mickey's Backyard BBQ would be my first choice.

    Have a great time!
