🐻✨ Hold onto your hats, Disney fans! The much-anticipated Country Bear Musical Jamboree is set to make its grand debut at Magic Kingdom on July 17, 2024! Walt Disney World has just announced the summer opening date along with fresh new details, concept art, and more. Let’s dive into the exciting updates headed to Frontierland!

If you’re familiar with the original Country Bear Jamboree, get ready for a delightful twist. This revamped attraction, dubbed Country Bear Musical Jamboree, brings back all the beloved characters like Trixie, Big Al, and more, but they’ll be serenading us with reinterpreted Disney classics in various styles of country music. Imagine hearing “A Whole New World” or “Try Everything” from *Aladdin* and *Zootopia*, transformed into bluegrass, pop-country, and rockabilly versions! It’s an homage to Nashville’s classic musical revues with a magical Disney twist.

Our favorite Imagineers have collaborated with renowned musicians, including 10-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally, to bring an authentic country sound to the show. Notably, country singer Emily Ann Roberts lends her vocals to Trixie’s rendition of “Try Everything,” ensuring the attraction maintains its fun, friendly tone while appealing to multiple generations of Disney fans.

However, it’s not just the music getting a makeover. The bears are receiving new costumes designed by Disney veterans Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily. Additionally, the Audio Animatronics will be upgraded to the latest A-1000 models, promising smoother movements and more lifelike performances. Picture the bears’ banter and jokes interwoven with these toe-tapping tunes—Disney magic at its finest!

Fans are speculating on the possibility of soft openings and previews, similar to those offered for Moana’s Journey of Water. While details are yet to be confirmed, there’s a chance for Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members to get an early glimpse. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the opening date.
