      Positive aspects of the product (pros): All of it is Great
      Cons: None

      A great show with great food and service. It was a wonderful experience for our whole family. We got to sit right up front and take an active role in the show. Our grandchildren thought it was really a hoot!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fun, clean entertainment
      Cons: Expensive and loud

      We had our first visit to the HDDMR on December 26, 2017. We paid the extra amount to sit on the main floor (1st tier) and it was worth it. We had table #64, which we were told at check-in was a great table. It was right in the middle of the floor and the performers danced around us.

      Since it was during Christmas, the room was decorated and the show incorporated some seasonal music. The performers were very great and it was a cute show with a good amount of audience participation.

      When you walk in the salad and bread are on the table waiting for you. The fried chicken was great (the same you get at Trails' End BTW), the ribs were fine, and I liked the sides. Desert was strawberry shortcake. They will bring you as much food as you want. Bottomless wine, sangria, and beer are included. So if you drink, that will help justify the price.

      We were staying at Coronado Springs and debated driving over because of the huge crowds, but I'm glad we didn't. We took a bus to the Magic Kingdom and then took the resort boat to Ft. Wilderness. We came back the same way. I love the campground, so we didn't mind wandering around a bit until it was time to check in.

      I'm not sure we will go again since it is basically the same show. But I can say I have been and it was a fun experience.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Entertainment
      Cons: Seating

      It had been many years since we did this and decided to do it this trip since friends were with us. The food was okay. The ribs were good but the beans were cold. The corn bread was good but I miss the strawberry vinaigrette dressing on the salad. The one they have now was too spicy for me taste. The chicken was good but the strawberry shortcake needed more strawberries and less cake. The show is always entertaining and we all enjoyed it. Since the only seating available was Tier 3, we had no choice. If you choose to use the Tier 3 seating, everyone sits in one line so you cannot hold a conversation with anyone other than the two people seated next to you. The chairs turn so you can see the show. However, you cannot see what is happening directly below you. Everyone should do this once. It is fun.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): ???
      Cons: Cost, food

      This one was tough for me. We've all heard of the Hoop Dee Doo and everyone loves it and I wanted to, I really, really wanted to but.... C'mon. 4 adults (actually 2 parents and 2 teens) $300 bucks, fried chicken, and cheesy entertainment. First off, they stuff you in there. I was constantly getting bumped by someone. The food is fine- fried chicken, ribs, mashed potatoes, corn, beans and salad but again $300. Unlimited beer and wine is only possible if you can get a server to bring it to you. We had a total of 3 beers at our table. I also understand that I'm paying for a dinner show and while I did laugh a few times I just don't understand the hype. I'm glad after 40 years of traveling to Disney that I finally went but will I be back? Not a chance! And I am thankful that my kids grinned and beared it without any complaints!!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Everything!
      Cons: Nothing!

      This was my first experience with HDDMR after 11 previous WDW trips. It did not disappoint in any way! The food was excellent and the show was very entertaining. Since we were there in December, we caught the Christmas version. I still have Sixpence singing "I Ain't Gettin' Nuttin' For Christmas" stuck in my head!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Most food is great, you'll have a wonderful time, never gets old
      Cons: Price keeps going up, some of the food is less than great

      I visited Hoop Dee Doo in December 2015 about a week before Christmas for the first time and boy was it amazing. Got category 1 seating (which I highly recommend) and we had a blast. Food was excellent, cast was funny. everything was great. Saw it with my mother, father, sister and niece. My other sister (niece's mother) was flying down to visit during Christmas and we decided we wanted to go again, as my other sister had never seen the show before. By some miracle I was able to get a category 1 table for 6 on Christmas eve. This show was even better than the first. Our table was dead center, the performers came and sang and danced right around our table, Claire came and sat on my dads lap and my niece was picked for a role towards the end of the show. A family experience we'll never forget.

      Like most have said, it's a Disney must. The jokes will be corny but they never cease to be funny. Kids especially will love the show.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Entertaining and good food
      Cons: None

      Went to Hoop de Doo Revue on 12/5/16. Show was great as always. Went with 2 couple who have never seen the show before. They loved it. Loved the food too. It being Christmas they added Christmas songs, which made the show different for a 6th time it was great.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Entertaining, great food
      Cons: pricey

      This was the second time that we have attended the show. It had been awhile so we were all in agreement that it was a must-do for this trip. We sat in Tier 3 section (upstairs). We basically sat at a long table while eating then our seats swiveled around to watch the show. These were great seats-our view was only blocked when the performers came over to the far corner off the stage. My youngest son and friend's teenage daughter were included in the show. Age range for our group was 11-45. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. It is a little pricey but I don't think any of us had laughed that hard the whole trip. We talked about the show days afterwards too. If you are on the fence, my advice is to GO!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Wonderful food, entertaining show, unlimited beer wine & sangria!
      Cons: Category 3 seating a little uncomfortable

      Went to the 8:30 show on 11/2/15. Purchased Category 3 seating last January and got moved to the floor due to lack of attendance. This show was near capacity and we did have to sit in the balcony. I was pleasantly surprised to see the performers coming up to our level and getting us involved. The seating was a little unusual as our seats had our backs to the entertainment in order to eat but they rotated around. Still was a little uncomfortable for a larger person like me but we managed.

      Food was outstanding as always: chicken was crispy and flavorful, ribs were tender and smoked just right, cornbread was great and the other sides did not disappoint. Strawberry shortcake was SO GOOD but we were so full we didn't eat much of the dessert. We did have a dairy allergy in our party and she was taken care of with great respect as per usual with Disney.

      The show was full of great singing, dancing and plenty of corny jokes, but if you're in the right frame of mind they're very funny! Improv skills of the cast came into play a few times to pick on an embarrassed 13 year old girl in the front and that added a hilarious touch. I appreciated being recognized for being recently engaged, my fiance not so much but she's shy.

      The show is a bit pricey but worth every penny in my opinion. Having my friend's CM discount certainly helps. If you're on the Dining Plan consider paying for this out of pocket as it's not a great value when you break it down per credit (2 table service credits).

      Just a note, we had been at Hollywood Studios earlier that day and stayed to see most of Fantasmic, still making it with plenty of time to spare. Would likely have made it even if we had stayed until the end of Fantasmic. It's possible to make it just be on the way out to avoid the huge crowds that Fantasmic gets nightly.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Food/Show
      Cons: Nothing

      We ate here at the end of June celebrating my daughter's birthday with a large group from her dance team that was at Disney performing. Most of the girls were in the 12-13 age group and obviously too cool for this...until they all had a blast and loved the food.

      The show is corny and predictable...but hysterical. The food is basic, but done well. As is most of cases at Disney you are paying for the show and atmosphere so don't expect gourmet dining.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fun, food & entertainment
      Cons: ribs still no good

      2nd time we have done this.

      Kids and parents really enjoyed it yet again. The food is very good (cornbread especially) with the exception of the ribs. Unlimited beer and sangria is nice touch.

      This time we had tier 1 seating and our table was right up against the stage. Really felt like we were part of the show. Cast is new and younger but still very funny.

      The key to this is you have to go in with an open mind and understand this is a corny hee-haw style show.

      Lots of fun!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): fun evening out

      3 times in 5 years and it doesn't get old. From the setting, to the atmosphere, to the cast, to the servers, to the food, to the entertainment just a very enjoyable event Our server, Rob, even gave us small gifts as we left.

      Cons: None

      This was the second time we attended this show and dinner.
      I have nothing bad to say about this place. The food and the show were outstanding. I especially like the chicken. The service is good and you walk away knowing you got your money's worth.

      Cons: NOTHING!

      I have been here many times before, always with a positive experience. However, when my wife and I went on our Disneymoon, it was the best experience yet.
      We were seated on the sweetheart table (right against the stage in the middle).
      The food was amazing (AS ALWAYS) the service, out of this world, and the show was fantastic.
      We were asked to stand up and dance while they sang a love song (all of the couples who were celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon got up to join in).
      Hoop Dee Doo really made out first night of our honeymoon one to remember.
