Hoop Dee Doo- for adults

I've never done HDDR, but would like to experience it. I have a few questions...

Would you recommend HDDR for a group of 5 adults, no kids? We are spending a couple days in the world after our cruise on the DREAM. We opted out of the dining plan (figured we'd be full from eating on the cruise) so we'd be paying out of pocket.

Do you think its worth paying OOP?
or
Do you think we should wait until next year, when we will have the DDP?
or
Do you think we should wait until we have kids with us?

Also, what are the vegetarian options?

Would you recommend HDDR for a group of 5 adults, no kids? Yes. There was adult oriented (but family friendly) humor. We are spending a couple days in the world after our cruise on the DREAM. We opted out of the dining plan (figured we'd be full from eating on the cruise) so we'd be paying out of pocket.

Do you think its worth paying OOP? Yes. But only one time.
or
Do you think we should wait until next year, when we will have the DDP? Depends. You have to use 2 TS on Dining Plan but really not 2 TS credit worthy--price is less than most 2 TS credit events/dining. DDP covers tip. We used the DDP when we went to HDDR.
or
Do you think we should wait until we have kids with us? No.

Also, what are the vegetarian options?
The chef will make you anything you want if you don't like what they are serving. Just ask.

You don't need kids to do Hoop de Doo. We really enjoy the show. We paid OPP and used our credits on other meals.

DH and I have been a number of times. We don't have kids. We've also been in larger all adult groups and have attended the show. It's a lot of fun! Try the late show! There are not as many children and the performers get a little loopy by the end of the night. It's a good time for sure!

We have always paid OOP for HDDR, even when we were on the dining plan. I personally think it's well worth it!

Do it! We went and had a wonderful time! We did have my son with us but I saw a lot of adults..The later shows has less kids, the food is good and plentiful and it does include alcoholic beverage (I think its limit two though) I had the sangria but they did serve beer. I did use my dining credits but its two credits per person so paying out of pocket is not to bad...

Thanks! I think we will try it. Does it matter which tier you are in?

We went with a group of three adults and had a blast. I can't imagine it being better with kids.

There were two vegetarians among us, and they offered us a choice of grilled vegetables or pasta with marinara. I had the vegetables and they were delicious. (FYI, the baked beans are made with bacon.) All of the food was great, especially the cornbread. I'd pay OOP if I didn't have the DDP and had the cash.

We were in the cheapest seats, and they were good, but if I'd had the extra money (or the ability to eat a big meal later at night without getting sick) I do think I'd have tried for the better ones. We had to turn away from the table to see the show, which meant we couldn't linger over our food the way I'd have liked to. But they did make an effort to include the people in the balcony in some of the audience participation, so we didn't feel left out.

I think it's a fun show. So do my kids. It has broad appeal, I think, because the humor is so broad. As a bonus for the grown-ups, a set of alcoholic beverages is available at no additional cost, if you're inclined to imbibe. I know the choices in beer are not the best beers on the market, but the wines are okay.

I'd suggest one of the farther-back tiers, 2 or 3, for a table of grown-ups. You get a lower chance of character interaction, and the show is a little less in-your-face if you end up not liking it so much. If it's a slow time and the place isn't packed, you may get moved forward into a closer tier. Tier 2 is probably a good compromise between a good view and some separation from the action.

We only went with NO kids, we could drink and have fun without the responsibility of kids LOL.

We like Tier 3 upstairs, no one is in front of you and you can see everything really well. It's a balcony.
