The Country Bear Jamboree has been a staple at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom since the park opened in 1971. This opening day attraction has been entraining guests with fun songs and silly jokes performed by our favorite bears including Liver Lips McGrowl. The air conditioned attraction was a great break from the Florida heat and humidity, so when Disney announced in September 2023 it would be closing for a makeover, the closure was felt by many.

Disney was up to the challenge; however, the Country Bears had their final performance on January 27, 2024, and after only five months of reimagining they have announced our lovable bears will return on July 17th, 2024. Guests are excited to see their favorite bears in new costumes, singing new songs and telling fun new jokes.

Disney gave us a sneak peek of the updated version of the show on TikTok. You can click below to view this fun video from Disney Parks. Frontierland has been home of several favorite attractions over the years. But with the closures of Splash Mountain and the Country Bears Jamboree it left mainly Big Thunder Mountain to entertain guests for months.

Splash Mountain has been reimagined and will re-open on June 28th as Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. This new version of the ride will feature Tiana and all of her friends as they take you on a flume ride.

Frontierland is bound to be a hit this summer with its updated offerings. Keep a look out for fun foods associated with the reimagining, along with fun new merchandise.
