The thing swooped down, hit me in the face with its wing, scooped up my dog, and flew away

No opinion of any of the shows, just an FYI - Mickeys BBQ ends at during December, so if you are going to choose that one, you neen to make sure its actually running during your stay.

We just got back today and we did mickeys BBQ Tuesday night. We enjoyed it a lot. I thought the food was great. There were hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. it was all you can eat. I'm not picky though.

Hoop-Dee-Doo is a GREAT show for people of all ages. The Poly Luau is "just okay," in my opinion. Never been to Mickey's Backyard Barbecue.

Another vote for Hoop de doo. It is much, much better a show than the Aloha show. Hoop is one of those shows that you have to experience at least once!!!

I've been to both. The Luau used to be alot better than it is now. It's now turned into this lame kids story & bad food.

HDDR was one of the best nights in WDW that we have ever had! & I agree with the PP's-it is fun for all ages. The only negative is it can be a pain to get to. But it is well worth the trek!!

I really think it's a great show for all ages. I've been multiple times, and can't wait to return this January. I went to Spirit of Aloha once back in 2011, and it was a total disappointment.

I've heard fantastic things about Hoop-de-Doo.

I've been to the luau. I actually did like the food, and the second half of the show was good, but I don't think I'd do it again.
