Refurbishment Schedule

Late Summer 2024

Starting on January 27th, Grizzly Hall will be temporarily closed and is set to reopen its doors later in the summer. This means Friday, January 26th, 2024 will be park guest’s last day to enjoy this classic Disney World attraction before it is closed for refurbishment until late summer.

At the Destination D23 event in 2023, Disney broke the news that the Country Bear Jamboree at Magic Kingdom would be taking a short hiatus. The show will be paused to make room for a significant revamp, with plans to re-open its doors later in the summer.

The Country Bear Jamboree is not just getting a superficial touch-up; it’s being completely reimagined. The new version will showcase updated characters and new music that draws inspiration from Nashville’s Opry-style shows. This musical transformation will encapsulate the unique sounds of the city, blending classic Disney tunes with a country twist, and introducing original songs that span various sub-genres of country music.

The Curtain Closes Only to Reopen

The temporary closure of the Country Bear Jamboree at Magic Kingdom signifies not an end, but a new beginning! With the promise of a refreshed show set to debut later in the summer, fans have much to look forward to.
