Walt Disney World's Country Bear Jamboree at Magic Kingdom will be closed starting January 27, 2024 to begin work on updating the show with a fresh new act opening summer 2024.

In an update today, Disney says, "The Country Bears are getting ready to put on a new show that pays homage to the Opry-style shows of Nashville. While the Country Bear Musical Jamboree will include easter eggs from the beginning to the end including a familiar tune fans may remember, the bears will sing new, reinterpreted Disney tunes in different genres of country music – like bluegrass, pop-country, Americana, rockabilly and other styles."

Disney also teased that more changes will soon be announced for Frontierland at Magic Kingdom.

Here is a look at a recording session for the new show which will be named "Country Bear Musical Jamboree."

That’s def a question I had in mind/am definitely going to ask when I’m able to speak with him for my Talking Mickey Mouse (the audio-animatronic talking/storytelling toy by Worlds of Wonder, similar to Teddy Ruxpin) research project soon. :

Does anyone know if Peter Renaday is involved in the new show, even in a small role? Paging @Inspired Figment because you mentioned him in the Figment thread.

Hoping we get a nice Kinman sign out of this since he seems to be helping out with Bayou.

A guest spot for Louis would be pretty cool. Not sure brass fits in with the theme here, but I guess it depends on the content of the new show.

I'm not 100% opposed to this. I'm not in favor of it, but I wouldn't turn my nose towards him appearing.
