Disney has shared a look inside the new Country Bear Musical Jamboree opening this summer at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

In the video, we go behind-the-seams with Sara Landesberg, an Audio-Animatronic Costumer with Disney Live Entertainment who is helping bring these new show to life. Sara works coordinating the different teams that come together to create a complete garment, hat, or any item that ends up being center stage for the jamboree —including every single rhinestone that is hand-placed across the big-frills costumes.

Bunny, Bubbles, and Beulah — and the rest of 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.

I grew up with Lilo and Stitch, and "Stitch Kingdom," and honestly, I hate him. Far too much Stitch when I was young.

I want Japan's Stitch tiki room SOOO bad it's unreal. Stitch is like, currently the most popular character with no 'home' in WDW. Tiki Room is where he'd do the least damage. You'd even have the ability to do the normal show still!

there were so many little moments that were just kind of magic... Now it seems like everyone is in their phones...partly because they have made it to where you have to be...reservations for rides, restaurants...It is all starting to feel too stressful to me... I would almost rather fly to Barcelona for 4 or 5 days... it is just about easier than a week at Disney...probably cheaper too...lol

Oh I forgot about him!!!!! Yes!!!!! Went to eat there just to see him and he was incredible! The waitress came by and said “would you like to meet the chef” - it was the definition of Disney magic!

Even the little Ratatouille they used to wheel around the restaurant in France was great....

That technology was great - lucky the dinosaur and muppet mobile labs were both fantastic as was the talking Disney characters. But we can’t have nice things anymore so they were cut away.

That works for me....

@Bocabear - let’s make a deal. Once I go back to school and get a degree in engineering technology + go work for WDI, we can make it happen

What if they took a page from the Muppet Mobile Labs book and had an appropriately sized Orange Bird animatronic on a big cart of citrus that they could roll out through the crowds and into a spot for a little meet and greet... Orange Bird didn't talk, but I think made bird calls... It would be nothing more than a little bit of whimsical charm...a nod to the past, and a fun way to play with the history of the park... the sort of little details that I think a lot of us would appreciate...

This is actually perfect. Golden afternoon couldn’t be more perfect.

If they did that they might as well do Tokyo's Stitch Tiki Room, since that's just full of L&S songs like Hawaiian Roller Coast Ride and Aloha E Komo Mai heh.
