Walt Disney World rumors have been shot down concerning the closing of Country Bear Jamboree and the Enchanted Tiki Room. These classic opening day attractions at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will not be closing anytime soon.
Country Bear Jamboree
Contrary to rumors, Country Bear Jamboree is NOT closing. Our beloved bears over at Country Bear Jamboree are not going into hibernation any time soon.
Nostalgia means a lot to Disney fans. We still want to experience the rides and attractions that we loved as a child and can pass down to our children and then grandchildren from generation to generation. Henry and the gang are one of the original opening day attractions back on October 1, 1971. They definitely deserve to be honored at the 50th anniversary in October. 1, 2021.
This country and western musical revue starring an Audio-Animatronic bear band are one of the last attractions that Walt Disney himself personally helped plan. I personally feel it would be a big error in judgment for Walt Disney World to ever remove this attraction. Let’s keep the history of the parks alive and keep Walt in Walt Disney World.
Enchanted Tiki Room
All the birds sing words and the flowers croon! In the tiki, tiki, tiki, tiki Tiki Room!
Another unfounded rumor was that the tiki birds were going to be flying the coop. Don’t listen to these Walt Disney World rumors from unscrupulous sources. These birds are still singing. The birds have been entertaining guests since opening day, October 1, 1971, and will continue to do so. This classic attraction delights thousands of guests every day and is not going away any time soon.
This attraction originally opened in 1963 at Disneyland and was the first to feature groundbreaking Audio-Animatronics technology. Walt Disney was inspired to pursue this concept of singing birds after seeing a mechanical bird while traveling.
Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room is home to over 225 choreographed Audio-Animatronics performers. I always enjoy singing along with the birds, flowers and Tiki statues as many others do. So don’t be afraid to shout it out. After this South Seas musical extravaganza, the next stop is for a Dole Whip from Aloha Isle.
The Bears and the Birds are classics that I hope will always be around to entertain us and generations to come. New and exciting attractions are one thing, but not at the expense of the classics we’ve come to know and love so much.
Glad to hear it was just Walt Disney World rumors and nothing more. Now if only the Country Bear Jamboree vacation hoedown and Christmas special show would return…
