    alright I want some really passionate yes's or no's & why...

    is the food good?
    or do you really ONLY go for the show?

    is it worth 2 dis dining credits?

    (or would you pay cash & save the credits for 2 other places?)

    Yes. I would use your credits on this.

    I actually go more for the food then the show, but the show is still good and very funny.

    When I went, we paid for four tickets, and it was worth every penny. The entertainment was great. The food was wonderful and plentiful. And if you needed more, they would get it for you.
    Highly recommended!:thumbsup2

    We love the HDDR show and the food is good - not out of this world - but really good. I would not use your dining credits - not because its "not worth it" but because you can't get tier one seating. I would pay out of pocket and get tier one seating

    We did not like it at all. It was so not worth the 2 ts credits. The food was awfull. The entertainment was good for the adults. My four kids didn't like the food or the show. Not to mention how complicated it was to get transpertation to and from the show. We had to take a boat, a monarail and then a bus to get back to our hotel. Sorry but that was our experience. Everyone is different and you and your family may love it.

    We just went a couple of weeks ago and loved it. Our boys 7 & 4 loved it and laughed the whole time. The food was good and plentiful. We payed OOP instead of using credits because I wanted Tier 1. You can use credits for tier 1 at the 9:00 show though.

    I didn't know that about tier one after nine. I too will have to disagree about it only being adult entertianment. It is my nine year old niece's favorite show in disney. She's seen it three times starting when she was 4.5 and laughs huge belly laughs the entire time.

    We go only for the show. The food is generally inedible, especially the ribs (which are nothing but fat and bone) and the chicken (which is dry as dust).

    Hi! We thought the food was great. We had so much fun! My girls were 4 & 5 when we went and they loved it! :lmao: We sat in tier 2 and I thought it was fine. We were in the back but we were in tables that were higher than the ones in front of us. I would rather than than Tier 1 with people in front of me on the same level. I think getting there is part of the fun. It really brings you back to that time period. We cant wait to go again! Only advice I would give is bring a sweater it was kinda cold in there. Have a great time! It isnt the longest running musical in the USA for nothing!:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

    Our family of 8 plus the nanny ate there in September and we all loved it. The food was great!! My hubby hasn't found a rib in 28 years that he'll eat and enjoy until HDDR!!!:thumbsup2 The chicken was really tasty and the kids all enjoyed their meals as much as we did. Everyone enjoyed the entertainment. The kids clapped along and many of the jokes were "over their head", but as adults, we laughed and laughed.

    I would highly recommend seeing HDDR at least once. We'll be returning in December with my mother-in-law and I know she'll love it as well.:yay:

    I give it :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 2 thumbs up!!

    P.S. It is one of the only places that includes Beer as a beverage included in the cost of the meal. That in itself is enough to get my hubby to go back - he loves the value!!:woohoo:

    Here's my take on it - The food is homestyle cookin' and good. It's not the best food I've had in Disney, but it sure as heck beats my microwave skills. The show is fun. Again, it's not the best show I've seen at Disney, but it's fun and very much for a family. I think it's worth going to see at least once. It's definitely an experience!

    The food is OK, but it's the great show and to a lesser degree the alcohol included that makes it worth 2 credits. I would definitely do it again.

    Two thumbs way up. Great food, great show, free beer and wine, and the tip is even included. And cat 1 at 9:30 makes it a great use of 2 credits. Although I usually pay oop for it.
