Readers can help save the Country Bear Christmas Show
Written by Robert Niles
The hot rumor out of the Magic Kingdom is that the powers that be at Walt Disney World have decided to save a few bucks by not installing the Christmas Show at the Country Bear Jamboree.Tweet
As a former "Bear Band" cast member, who has seen the three versions of this show, oh, about a combined 3,000 times, the Christmas show is my favorite. Disney's had great success with holiday overlays for its attractions, especially at Disneyland, but the Country Bear show is the original, and one of the few at Walt Disney World.
Fortunately, there might be some hope for Country Bear fans. Disney managers are said to be monitoring customer feedback on this, and an outcry of support for the Bears might help bring the Christmas show back. Perhaps even for this year.
So if you are visiting Walt Disney World this week, stop by the Magic Kingdom Guest Relations counter in City Hall, and make a polite request that Disney maintain the Country Bear's Christmas tradition. (Be sure that the cast member you speak with writes down your request!) And if you aren't going to be in the parks, find the snail mail address to write to Disney on our How to contact various theme parks wiki.
