Can someone tell me if there are any loud noises in this show (like cap guns, balloons popping, etc?) We have a family member who jumps at anything like that and dreads shows knowing loud sounds are forthcoming. Thanks for the info. in advance!

I'll echo what just about everyone else is saying and give it a glowing recommendation. We did it last September for the first time, and it was one of the highlights of the trip. As for the category, we booked category 3 (balcony), but I'm assuming it was a slow night because we were upgraded to category 2 (rear floor). The floor was great, but I could see the balcony having its benefits if you don't care about interaction and want to look down on the action.
No Ticker. Just returned from a wonderful stay at BLT. Now back to reality.

Hoop De Do was fine, but not excellent. the food is good, but not astounding. The entertainment was fine, but it had nothing to do with Disney. My family prefers Mickey's Backyard BBQ, which was a lot more fun, more Disney-themed, and had way better food. It's also more fun for younger kids, where as at HDD, you have a show geared towards older kids and adults. You'll still have a great time at Hoop De Do, but I would recommend the Backyard BBQ.

We did the HDDR on our trip in Sept 2012. It was pretty cool. One of my wife's friends was picked to be the Can Can girl. I've got a pretty funny video of it. We plan on going back in Nov 2013 with some more of my wife's friends. Hoping to get one of them up on stage.

We were Cat 2 seating and we were on the DxDP. Not sure if that is normal or not but it was not a full show so they may have moved us to fill in around the stage better. Either way there didn't look to be a bad seat in the place. The food was pretty good and my wife ate one strawberry shortcake all by herself. She is a fairly small woman (5'4", 110 lbs) and the strawberry shortcake could feed a small country for a day or two.

We really enjoyed drinking our beverages out of the mason (Ball) jars. I drank a beer or two and my wife had wine. We made our own Hidden Mickey since the beer glass was slightly larger than the wine glasses.

After all of my ramblings I would recommend doing the HDDR to anyone that has not done it. It may not be for everyone but we sure had a good time.
