Disney recently announced an official closing date for the Country Bear Jamboree at Magic Kingdom. There really isn't anything groundbreaking in this announcement, as we knew this was coming back at Destination D23 in September. But we can talk about what other little substance there was to this announcement, though most of all, I wanted to expand a bit on what I said in that longer D23 post, now that the end is actually (almost) here.
Disney often likes to say things like "coming in 2024", and this was just one of the many things that were talked about with a vague time frame. I had foolishly hoped that I would have one more opportunity to see this show in all of its kitschy, animatronic glory when we visited in April. But alas, Disney is going to get to work on the new show starting on January 27, and it won't reopen in its new (improved?) form until "summer" (another vague timeline that surely comes after our April trip).
