When I tell folks that I never miss the Country Bear Jamboree on a Walt Disney World visit the typical reaction happens. First there’s the condescending smile and the rolling of the eyes as if to say – oh well, he’s old and just reliving his childhood. Then you get the comments like it’s old and tired, the animatronics are ancient, the jokes are stupid, and the bears look like they have seen better days. I always answer each one of them with the same statement – I know, but I still enjoy it and that’s really all that counts. The music is lively, I know all the words, and I sing along with my beloved bears!!! Sure, that’s silly but humor me. Remember I’m old (at least that’s what the eye rollers and smilers seem to think) and I know what I enjoy.
Perhaps the best part of the show is the finale when all of the animals are lit up and singing at the same time. It’s not a Hollywood musical number but it’s very pleasant and just plain fun.
Next time you’re walking through Frontierland and headed for Liberty Square take a few minutes to go into the Air Conditioned theater and sit down for a fun show (and a little rest too). It may not be the highlight of your vacation but I think you will enjoy it. As always, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!!
