Attraction Overview

Make sure to warm up your vocal cords before you get ready to sing along with the bears who reside in The Country Bear Jamboree. This attraction is a musical review at the Grizzly Hall where the famous bear residents sing a musical review from park open until close. When entering the theatre, you will see the room come to life.

There is a buffalo, moose, and deer hanging on the wall, ready to host the show and get the singalong started. Once the music starts playing, you will see different “redneck bears” playing classic country music. Guests may be familiar with some famous bears such as Big Al, Henry, and Teddi Berra. 

Walt Disney initially imagined this attraction going inside of a hotel in California called Disney’s Mineral Skiing Resort. Unfortunately, this did not come to light after Walt’s passing. Before Walt’s death, though, he worked with Imagineer Marc Davis, who completed the attraction plans. At this time, the show was supposed to be in a restaurant called Bear Band Resort. Later the idea came to open Country Bear Jamboree as a standalone attraction and include in the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

With the Country Bear Jamboree being so close to Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain, this is a good option for Disney’s littlest visitors who aren’t tall enough to ride those attractions. Instead of waiting in the sun for your family to ride Frontierland’s adventure rides, take the little ones to enjoy this entertaining show. The Country Bear Jamboree is a perfect way to find instant entertainment during any part of your day. Whether rain or shine, you can always stop by The Grizzly Hall and sing a few tunes with the jolly bears of the the Country Bear Jamboree. 

The wait time for The Country Bears is typically 16 minutes long. This is because the show is 16 minutes long. Luckily that leads to a short continuous loop of a wait time. 

Queue Experience

The queue for the Country Bear Jamboree is indoors with air conditioning and benches for seating. You will see artwork of some of the famous bear performers you will be seeing in the show. Every once in a while you can sometimes see the Country Bears roaming around the outside of the theatre and maybe even dancing in a Frontierland Hoedown.
