In an announcement today, Disney has made it clear that the Country Bear Jamboree at the Magic Kingdom will not be replaced anytime soon, and will celebrate its 50th anniversary on October 1 2021.

Posted via the official Disney Parks Blog, Disney said:

Thanks for “bearing” with us this week. With all of the news we’ve shared, we “fur-got” to mention our friends over at the Country Bears. Our Imagineers are always looking at ways to bring more magic to our guests through experiences and stories they know, but contrary to rumors, Country Bear Jamboree is not going into hibernation any time soon. In fact, we’re looking forward to celebrating its 50th anniversary on Oct. 1, 2021, with Henry, the Five Bear Rugs and the rest of the gang. Until then, “we hope that you’ll be comin’ back again; that you’ll drop in and see us now and then.”

The Country Bear Jamboree went through a major refurbishment in 2012, but there had been recent internet speculation that the Jamboree may have been closing in the near future to make way for a new show.

Disney also made another announcement earlier this week indicating that the Magic Kingdom's Tiki Room will also continue.
