Country Bear Jamboree
Opened: October 1, 1971
Attraction length: 12 minutes
Based on a suggestion by Walt Disney himself, the Country Bear Jamboree has all the makings of an old-fashioned hoe-down. This entertaining knee-slapping fun is held in Grizzly Hall and features 20 Audio-animatronic bears. Starring the 7 foot tall Henry as the Master of Ceremonies, the show offers corny humor and the singing talents of entertainers such as the Five Bear Rugs, Teddi Barra the Tampa Temptation and hear the harmony of Bubbles, Bunny and Beulah.
Although more popular with the older and younger folks, this is a popular attraction and long lines are not uncommon. However don't be disheartened by this; the theatre is large and once the doors open, large groups will go in at one time. During the holiday season, a Christmas version is offered.
Handicapped Accessibility: This show is wheelchair accessible and guests with hearing difficulties will note that assistive listening devices can be used here and are available at Guest Services. Reflective Captioning is also provided for the deaf, ask a Cast Member at the entrance for assistance.
Fun fact: This was the first major attraction to be debuted at Walt Disney World, then moved to other Disney parks world wide.
- cathie1327 - "This is an attraction I'd suggest for maybe once a trip. People who have been around Disney a long time may appreciate the nostalgia, but it's really not all that exciting and can be a bit boring. Nice place to get into some air-conditioning for a while though."
- gemini2727 - "I remember it being more exciting when I was a kid, but my kids did enjoy it and it gave us a bit of a rest."
