Natalie grew up in Nashville, TN. Married with one son, she lives on a farm. As if this weren't enough to keep her on her toes, Natalie also works around the clock due to being self-employed . Natalie often travels to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, giving her a vast knowledge of the Disney Resorts which she shares in her posts on The Disney Driven Life. She loves the research on the resorts and appreciates input for these articles as well. In recent trips, Natalie has begun making a habit of meeting people while in the parks. This habit inspired her personal website, Meet the Magic, This site helps her connect to others as well as hold space for Disney fans to post information about their Disney related sites. Her goal with this venture is to help people to "Meet the Magic" of their choice.

This week, I finish out our discussions of the Dinner Shows.  As you may recall, in the previous weeks, I have discussed the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue Dinner Show and the Spirit of Aloha Luau Dinner Show.  These shows are located at Fort Wilderness and the Polynesian Resort, respectively.

The last of the dinner shows is the Mickey’s Backyard Barbeque Dinner Show.  This show also takes place at Fort Wilderness in the Outdoor Pavilion.  This show is priced at a hefty rate of $50.99 for adults and $20.99 for children ages 3-9.  However, this rate includes an all-you-care-to-eat outdoor picnic style buffet.  Guests are invited to sing and dance along with Mickey, Minnie and Friends to music of a country-western band, so when you visit, be sure to bring your line dancing skills and be prepared to learn a few rope tricks!  Your children will love all of the activities!

The food fare includes:  garden salad, potato salad, creamy coleslaw, corn bread, hot dogs, barbeque pork ribs, smoked barbeque chicken, hamburgers, cowboy beans (yum), macaroni and cheese, and corn on the cob.  Desserts include ice cream bars and watermelon.  If you are thirsty from all of this food, wash it down with iced tea, lemonade, wine or beer.

I have never been to this show, so I would love to hear what you have to say about your experiences!  Leave us a comment to let us know if you found this show worth the price!

  1. I haven’t been to this either, but it sounds like a lot of fun once my 4-year-old stops being so picky when it comes to eating (please tell me that will happen!). I’m looking forward to hearing other’s experiences. NDM#19

  2. I hear you on the picky food bit! My son is 4 as well and just does not have any trust for us and foods. We tell him you will like it. We tell him the ingredients. When we SHOWED him the ingredients, he began to increase what he was eating. Now he is eating burritos, lasagna, and steak. Picky is good, a sign of him being so young. That will go soon enough. You have time!
