Mickeys BYBBQ or Hoop de doo?

I am coming in April with my husband and 3 sons ages 8,6 and 1.
We have always done all the character dinners but wanted to try one of the "show" types.
We have never done either one so I was wondering with 3 boys at these ages which one would be best.
Thank you!!

I would recommend the BYBBQ. With the little boys at least they will be able to get up and move around & not have to stay seated thru the whole show. There's plenty of dancing with the characters but it is usually not one on one interaction. Lots of fun. We love it & were bummed that we couldn't get an ADR there on our last trip.

I agree with PP with the ages of your boys the BYBBQ will most likely be the way to go. They get to move around and dance with the characters.They also teach country line dancing. My kids were about that age when we went and they loved it. When they are older though I would recommend doing HDDR it is a fantastic show that'll keep you laughing!!! Hope you have a great vacay!!

While we have never been to Hoop de doo, my kids always insist on returning to MBYBBQ on every trip. They enjoy watching the rope tricks, and dancing with the characters.

1) HDDR.
2) In my opinion, BBQ is a rip-off for the price.
