Hoop-Dee_DooToday Jon and I talk about one of the longest running stage shows at Walt Disney World, the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review. This is a show that Jon and I have both done multiple times over the years and we have always enjoyed it. This show has been entertaining guests for over 43 years now. We talk about what we love about the show and we give our review of the food as well. We also let you know if we think it is worth it to take young children to this show. Let us know what you think about the Hoop-Dee-Doo!
