Disney is wasting no time getting to work on its latest project!
Country Bear Jamboree is changing in a huge way in Magic Kingdom — Disney Imagineers are updating the show with “an all-new act.” The bears are going to be singing Disney songs in NEW styles, like pop country, rockabilly, and bluegrass! The ride officially closed its doors on January 27th, and now we’ve got our first signs that work is taking place.
We stopped by Country Bear Jamboree the day after it closed for refurbishment to check on any signs of construction — and we were surprised by what we found! Okay, so we didn’t really find a lot, although, at first, we thought something exciting was going on here. A STAGE was set up in front of the ride. We quickly learned, though, that this temporary stage is for an upcoming Cast Member event. Still, it looks pretty cool and has a lot of fun details.
However, the ride itself is completely roped off, so no one can go wandering in while the bears are learning their new songs. This is a closed rehearsal, people!
There is also a fun sign saying “Bear with us,” indicating that the ride is currently closed. Disney does have some cute signs for closed rides and construction sometimes.
We’ll keep our eyes out for additional construction updates. Could we see construction walls appear after the stage is taken down? Only time will tell! Over at Tiana’s Bayou Adventure (the area formerly home to Splash Mountain), the area is FILLED with construction walls, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Stay tuned to DFB for the latest news and changes from Country Bear Jamboree and more in Disney World.
