You Won’t BELIEVE This Fact About the Country Bear Jamboree Closure at Disney World 😱

By admin Feb 3, 2024

In case you missed it, Country Bear Jamboree is now closed in Magic Kingdom. But don’t worry — it’s coming back!

Those Country Bears are POPULAR!

It won’t look the same as the opening day Disney World attraction with changes to the songs, costumes, characters, and more, but it will return this summer in its new form. We were in Magic Kingdom on the last day of operation witnessing lengthy lines for the show just to see the final run get canceled 😢. However, we noticed something in the wait times that kinda shocked us!

Like we said, we saw LONG lines at Country Bear Jamboree on January 26th, its final day. What we didn’t expect was that that day drove up the average wait times by over 90%! After consistently posting 11-minute average wait times, the average went up to 30 minutes!

We wish we had better news from Animal Kingdom, but if you want to ride Flight of Passage (the park’s most popular ride) you’re going to have to wait.
