Best Extinct Attraction at Disneyland Resort
In 1972, Country Bear Jamboree opened in Disneyland as the centerpiece of the park’s newest land, Bear Country. It was the first Disneyland attraction to be cloned from a Walt Disney World attraction. One of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World in Florida is the country-western musical mish-mash known as Country Bear Jamboree. It stars the wildest bunch of foot-stompin’, knee-slappin’ rip-snorters ever to lumber out of the north woods. And this spring, the “rip-snorters” are coming to Disneyland, bringing with them, along with their lack of talent, a whole new land to the “happiest place of earth”: Bear Country. Even though Country Bear Jamboree first opened in Florida, an earlier version of the show was meant for California—but not for Disneyland.
