Hoop Dee Doo???

First, not sure if thats the correct name or spelling! I'm looking for some information, ideas or even pictures. We have been to Disney for the past 3years and I'm looking for something new, I will be paying out of pocket but I don't mind if I get good feedback. My two children are picky eaters but this sounds ok. One child is considered an adult. I'm also looking for any other places worth trying. We usually do: O'hana, Kona, 50primetime, Liberty Tree, TRex, trying Plaza. One of my sons likes ribs. Thanks for any comments!

We had 1 non-meat-eating adult, 3 finicky (spelling?) girls (12, 10, 9), and then 3 adults and 1 girl (6) who go with the flow. We all had a great time. Lots of fun. And way better than the Luau. HHDR gets very positive reviews overall.

We did it for the first time this past March - there were 11 of us, aged 5-40, and it was a hit with everyone!! As the above poster said, I found the ribs to be just OK, though my son loved them. Everything else was GREAT! The show is funny, corny, but funny. My poor DD was not feeling well, so didn't eat even one bite, but she still enjoyed the show. And guess what she's picked for her actual birthday dinner on our trip in 2014? That's right, HDDR! It will be her 10th birthday and she can't wait.

It's one of my absolute favorite experiences on the property. I've never seen anybody, of any age, leave without a huge smile on his or her face.

It is a great show. Lots of singing, dancing, and the performers went in the audience for a couple bits. There are some jokes that the adults will get, but go over the kids head. Plus, you don"t have to worry about weather as it is an indoor show. As for the food, it is fried chicken, BBQ ribs, and light beer. Being from KY, I think we really do fried chicken and BBQ ribs better than they serve there, but that is probably something similarly you may find with a New Englander's doing a seafood review at WDW.

Do it!

We were so pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had there! My generally reserved son (7 at the time), shocked us. We were sitting there enjoying the show and all of a sudden I look over and he (gotta know my son to fully appreciate this) is PLAYING THE WASHBOARD AND SPOONS!! Someone passed that stuff out to various people during some of the music. Again... to know my "stick in the mud at times" child.... he was playing the dang washboard and spoons like it was his job and get this....HE WAS SMILING! Absolutely made our trip.

HDDR is on our short list of must-do's on every trip! Everyone in our party always has a great time with lots of belly laughs, even though we've seen the show so many times and know what is coming. The food is yummy, hearty, comfort food. My kids are as picky as the next and they always eat well there. DH and I love the unlimited beer and sangria which is welcome after hot, long touring days with 3 kids!

LOL, thanks for the reminder, because it was the same here!!! We were with a large group, and my son tends to be a little more outgoing with his cousin there. But to "perform" in front of everyone, and be happy about it? He was really going to town on that washboard. He was 9 at the time. Compare that to his absolute refusals to participate in any game at Ohana...HDDR had it going on!
