Save the Country Bear Jamboree at Walt Disney World

UPDATE: The Bears Have Been Saved!

Thanks for all your help! Together, we did it! The Country Bear Jamboree has been saved!

Posted on 6/28/2019 by the Disney Parks Blog:

Thanks for “bearing” with us this week.  With all of the news we’ve shared, we “fur-got” to mention our friends over at the Country Bears. Our Imagineers are always looking at ways to bring more magic to our guests through experiences and stories they know, but contrary to rumors, Country Bear Jamboree is not going into hibernation any time soon.  In fact, we’re looking forward to celebrating its 50th anniversary on Oct. 1, 2021, with Henry, the Five Bear Rugs and the rest of the gang. Until then, “we hope that you’ll be comin’ back again; that you’ll drop in and see us now and then.”

The Country Bear Jamboree was in place as an opening day attraction in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom on October 1, 1971. The popularity of the show led to a version in Disneyland on March 4, 1972 (since removed) and a third version at Tokyo Disneyland on April, 15, 1983.

According to inside sources, the closure of the Country Bear Jamboree in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom is imminent. Bob Chapek’s mandate that the Disney Parks be used to “leverage intellectual properties” will likely claim the existence of this beloved, original attraction that is the definition of a Magic Kingdom classic—and do it just before its 50th birthday in 2021.

Disney Parks possess characters, environments, and experiences that are, themselves, unique.  As much as Disney Parks are places where characters from film and television come to life, they are also places inhabited by grim-grinning ghosts, by plundering pirates, by Figments of imagination, by singing tiki birds, and by country bears. Removing classic attractions that are the essence of the Disney experience for the sake of cheaply and easily bringing something new is fundamentally misguided and frightening. And that is the path that Mr. Chapek has forged through recent actions, namely the decal-laden Pixar Pier or the shadeless Toy Story Land in the heat of Central Florida. Our mission and purpose is to share news and information that maintain the quality of customer service, experience, and legacy that guests have come to expect from Disney Parks. Fundamental to that is a belief that some attractions are so tethered to the identity of a Disney Park as to become essential. To the Magic Kingdom, the Country Bear Jamboree is just such an experience.

FirstLastStateTell us what the Country Bear Jamboree means to you.
Rachel Bradley Texas I'm a college student hoping to work in the themed entertainment industry, and it's a dream of mine to work for Imagineering. To see the classic work of the original Imagineers, who worked with Walt himself, removed is so disheartening. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE BASED ON IPs. The best work from these creative individuals occurs when you let them create new worlds and new ideas. I understand that these IPs are popular and can make money, but things like this attraction are timeless and classic. The lifespan of this ride is longer than anything that is based on current popular franchises. I sincerely ask the Disney company to reconsider this decision, as someone who genuinely loves this company and dreams of working for them one day.
Ellie Smith Missouri It reminds me of my late grandfather who loved the Jamboree. Whenever I’m at Magic Kingdom, I make sure to see the show- it’s my way of remembering him
Super Star Limo California It was funny cause it had dated jokes, but we should really save Super Star Limo.
Stefanie Kovary Florida It has been a show we go on every time we there and it was my dads favorite show eve through he not with us in a way when go there it’s like he is there
Matthew Heid MD The Country Bear Jamboree is one of the first attractions I ever experienced at WDW when I was a little kid and ever since then, I have loved the show. It holds a special place in my heart and is always a must do for me. My friends and family love it too. Bob Chapek is hugely mistaken if he really wants to replace the show and his greed will become more evident if he gets away with it.
Nick Elsea Indiana Everything
Chris Nothnagle NY Please, keep the historic heart of the WDW resort. Not everything needs to be tied to a movie from the past 20 years.
Brett Borden Alabama As a pass holder I am seeing way too many traditional Disney originals fading away into things that haven’t much significance. Walt wouldn’t be proud of what’s becoming of his dream. Save what’s left of tradition.
Hugh Jass Wisconsin Country Bears are good
Matt Tidwell Indiana This classic ride represents a more innocent time in the parks and in my life. Focuses on creating original characters helps bring new creative ideas forward for the next generations and country bears does that more effectively that simply rebranding an existing idea
Obi-Wan Kanobi N/A The bears maintain a strong bond in the force. With their music, and powers, they continue to bring joy for many to come, unless the dark side manages to take them.
McKenzie Balderrama CA I grew up LOVING the Country Bears movie. I’m a Disneyland local, and too young to remember a time when we still had our version of Country Bear Jamboree. It was always an attraction I dreamed of seeing one day, when hopefully I am able to make the trip to WDW. I can’t have it leave before I get there!
Kayla Raleigh MA I'm a big advocate of the disney parks expanding while continuing to pay homage to Walts original vision. Country Bear Jamboreeis a great example of an opening day attraction that I think Walt would be very proud of.
Todd Howard West Virginia The music helped me focus when I was in the chess club, and helped our team make Fallout 76 better
Katie Allbee Wisconsin Reminds me of one of the things that truly got my grandfather to laugh out loud on a family trip. I also love the characters and how funny they are! When we were stuck during hurricane Irma, they were milling about the wilderness lodge causing antics and just generally being delightful. Would be truly saddened to see this icon leave. What’s next on the chopping block?
todd barger OH It means Disney to me.
Stefanie D'Oria Florida CBJ is a classic. Disney gets rid of it, we riot.
Melissa Fass Al It’s the best attraction that gets me going on a rainy day in Disney with a great place to sing and dance in ac
Maryanne Morrison New Jersey As a frequent visitor to Walt Disney World, I am saddened to hear that yet another beloved classic attraction is on the chopping block. The Country Bear Jamboree Has earned a special place in my heart. Perhaps my favorite memory of the show (aside from the Christmas overlay that has been gone for a decade and a half now), is a recent trip we took with our extended family. Our aunt was in tears laughing at the show, which made the rest of us laugh even harder. My daughter enjoyed it so much that she asks to listen to songs from the show all the time, and it was a must-do attraction for her on our next trip. When we made a recent expedition to Disneyland, she was saddened to learn that they no longer had the Country Bears there. We would all be so sad to lose this wonderful gem of an attraction.
Karen Anderson Virginia This is a wonderful, quirky show. The Country Bears are part of Frontierland history. It’s a must see on every trip.
Tucker Stosic California One of the first memories I have of Disney
Valerie R I never got the chance to see the show here in Disneyland and I hope one day I’ll be able to when visiting Disney World.
Amy Crisp Michigan I have fond memories of CBJ from my trips as a child and adult. I see CBJ at least once every trip. It's a family favorite!
Janna Curtis CA History nostalgia fun corny harmless humor love the holiday show please keep this show!
Jason Z Pa This is an outrage. Disney’s best attractions are the ones NOT affiliated with an IP! Space mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Country Bear Jamboree, and the Enchanted Tiki Room have so much more heart and soul and obviously had so much more talent and passion poured into these attractions than say Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin. You have arguably the most talented and creative artists in the world and you have them create cheap carnival rides.
Cindy Christensen Illinois I love the Country Bear Jamboree. It is a classic that should be saved.
John Hanssen CO It's been part of my WDW trips since December 1971 at 7 yeah 7 years old. Attraction means everything to me and it just rips a piece of my heart out to remove it.
Joe Lettre Florida The best attraction in Magic Kingdom.
Joe Vest NC The Country Bear Jamboree is my favorite attraction at Disney World. I listened to the record thousands of times and can still sing all of the songs. I visit it every time we are there. Please do not close this attraction.
Shelly Sanders Indiana I have such fond memories with my grandparents from the early 70’s!! It was my first trip to Magic Kingdom. Since Then I always enjoyed taking my boys to see the Bears as children to explain how much it meant to me and wanted them to experience the same thing!! Now my boys are in there 20’s and they know We cannot ever miss this tradition!! We actually sing the songs along with them and tell the jokes!! So many things in our lives our changing . This is one terrific attraction at Disney that needs to stay forever!!
Caitlyn King Ontario Classic Disney attraction. Also my grandma’s favourite
Stacy Wilson FL please don't take away another original product, that Walt challenged the Imagineers to create, to replace with more IP that is not needed. bring back the Christmas overlay to the Bears!
Jason Dudley GA Bear country is a highlight of our trips to the park. Love the connection to the parks history.
Nicole Hazen NC This attraction is a favorite of mine. When I watch this show It is suddenly 1985and I am 4 years old and sitting on my fathers lap. It too is his favorite. This year I got to watch with him and my two sons. There was nothing better.
Angie Hubbard FL The best attraction in Magic Kingdom. I've watched them every week since childhood.
Hannah Smelscer Pennsylvania It was one of my Dad’s favorites as a child, and one of the first I got to experience at Disney. I hoped to take my kids on when I had them someday, but I now fear that may not be possible.
JILLIAN LASSITER Massachusetts My childhood is blood on the saddle
Matt D. . Despite its flaws and how it could really use an update, I do not want an original attraction designed by Walt Disney (and a non-IP attraction) to close for another "Toy Story" attraction despite how much I love that franchise, there is more than enough attractions around it and this feels like a bad move if it were so to happen.
Will Cushing CT This is been one of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World since I first went in 1977. I am taking my children and my wife to the show every time we have visited we have visited over 25 times. I know the songs my kids sing the songs please save the country bears
Pamela Robinson Florida It is a beloved attraction for this bear lover! Please DO NOT close it!!
Michael Dunigan AZ Pop goes the weasel. Respect to any bear who can pull off a ruby encrusted dicky. Sad when Anaheim removed but hopeful that meant it would be a special reason to keep visiting the original in Florida. Update it if you.must...but the bears and the mechanical format should stay
Adrian Fagan Florida I just love how fun and wacky the show is. Having seen the show in Japan makes me love the Bears even more. If they left Magic Kingdom I would be very, very sad.
Arek G New York This has always been one of my favorite attractions. It is a fun show that the whole family enjoys. On my last trip to Disney World in January I saw this show several times. Each show that I watched had a large audience. Some shows the audience got really involved with the show and started to sing and clap along. The Country Bear Jamboree is a classic attraction that needs to stay around for future generations to enjoy.
T M AR The Country Brat Jamboree holds a special place in our family’s hearts. It is always a favorite when we are at the Magic Kingdom.
Andrew Belliveau MA The Country Bear Jamboree is more than just a show. It’s one of the longing memories of the man who started all this, Walt Disney. For me personally, it brings back memories of my grandpa. We always take a yearly trip to WDW and this was always his favorite show. I have countless memories sitting on his lap as he would mouth the words from Big Al’s solo hit: “There’s blood on the sand”. To see this iconic show be taken away would be a travesty. As they said in the “Country Bear” movie, don’t tear down our jamboree!
Robert Ricks FL It was my grandmother and grandfather’s favorite attraction because it reminded them of their growing up years and music in Ga. It’s always a must for my family every trip to Disney to honor them.
Guy Godin Québec All my trip to WDW i make myself go to The Country Bear Jamboree because of the History and one of the Original. To make a new show i don't have a problem but to take away that attraction that not cool Disney you have the space to built a new land built a new building for your new attraction a Keep The Bear Alone.
Maddie Odegaard MD I remember how sad I was when I realized that Disneyland removed the Country Bears. This cannot happen at WDW too! There’s too much heart and history.
Thomas McElmurry IL
Nick K Ga The CBJ is one of the attractions that put WDW on the map. Brings back many memories since I used to go to WDW 5x a year . Do not remove CBJ!!!
Brittany Rutherford FL The Country Bear Jamboree is my absolute heart and soul. It’s my first Disney tattoo (a portrait of Al on my leg) and it’s the first show at Disney I knew all the words to. No matter whose with me, I force them to go to Jamboree with me. No matter how many times I’ve seen it, it’ll never get old. I absolutely love the Country Bears and they’re a second home to me. I don’t think I’d renew my annual pass if they took it away very honestly.
Jeff M IL I grew up in Southern California. By far, and it isn’t even close, was watching the Country Bears with my dad (vacation hoedown version). When that closed 20 years ago I made my first trip to Florida. It was the original version, which I had never seen before (and frankly like less than the vacation hoedown). Still, all those great childhood memories came flooding back. That attraction alone is pretty much the only reason I have made trips to Florida since then. Man was I holding out hope they would bring the vacation hoedown back for the 50th. That alone would have caused me to book multiple trips down there just to enjoy the nostalgia. I have less than zero interest in whatever this toy story thing is. The franchise doesn’t interest me, the premise doesn’t interest me, and frankly I don’t know if I’ll ever make a trip back down to Florida. I saw the Tokyo version once. It was... fine. But, that might be my only option now. I mean, a trip to Tokyo probably isn’t any more expensive than a trip to WDW anymore.
Jonathan Taylor Virginia I don’t mind too much change in the parks, but as an opening day attraction at Magic Kingdom, it is important for this to remain. The Country Bears are a must every visit to WDW and the removal will kill me. Their singing brings joy to so many people in each show, and without them Magic Kingdom won’t be the same.
Chris D Michigan
Kaitlyn Gesek NJ I love Country Bear. It’s the heart and soul of Frontierland and a MK gem. Please do not remove it! Save it for the next generations!
Ashley Martinez NJ I grew up going to WDW with my grandparents, and this was my grandpa's favorite attraction. He was my best friend and I feel such a deep attachment to the the Country Bears. They make me feel closer to him, and it's a classic, which Disney seems to be systematically getting rid of. Nostalgia is part of the experience and Disney is ruining that.
Arron Flora FL The Country Bears are what Disney parks are all about to me. It’s one of the few attractions that cements Disney’s history of being a generational theme park!
Michael Murphy CA This is a sacred Walt Disney Landmark and should be refurbished with TLC not TNT. Save the Bears
Ryan Flynn New york The country Bear is a show I always have to go to, I love this the show on my phone. It and really important peace of the Disney parks. I have some what memories of the Christmas show and how both holidays shows come back.
Andrew Diaz North Carolina This was one of my favorite rides when I first started visiting Disney with my family when I was little and we have continued to visit this ride everytime we're here. It would be a shame to lose it.
Brian G Florida I have fond memories of watching the Country Bear Jamboree in the 1980’s. Please save this attraction.
Hannah Greenfield A firm favourite of all my trips. Have seen 100+ time and is always so fun. A unique piece of history.
John Farinelli NJ my first attraction i ever experienced at disney world, have now been over 50 times since then
Jonathan Cooper Tennessee One of the best attractions in theme park history and was my grandfather’s favorite attraction there. I can still see him laughing in his wheelchair for my trips growing up. The parks need to change, but they also need to retain the classics.
Vince Gagliardi NJ What does CBJ mean to me? Everything. Tradition. Family. Walt. Original. Memorable. Big Al. Like I said..EVERYTHING!
Thais C Barcelona I live outside USA, I've been to look at them live only once, and I don't want it to leave it like that, I wanna see them again. Watching the recordings of the show helps my anxiety, and it's so much better in real life. Please let them see them again and many other times.
Allison Levin Connecticut I’ve been watching this show for 23 years and it’s a staple at the Magic Kingdom. It was Walt’s last laugh. We must keep it!
Chloe Vessels KY Childhood memories
Kevin Aurilio NJ I remember going on this growing up visiting Disneyland. I was sad when it closed down, but happy because I knew it was at WDW. I visit this attraction each time I'm in the park. My 9-month old son is even named Henry (like the bear), please let him grow up with this attraction in his life as I did.
Jason Law AL It’s classic and Disney needs to stop getting rid of the classics
Bobby Cashman MD
Thomas Radzak FL All the blood on that saddle.
Julia Herrity Massachusetts Everything. It brings me the most happiness on earth.
Jack Lewis Florida The Country Bear Jamboree was first introduced to me as a kid by my grandfather on one of my first visits to the parks. It has now become a special attraction that I love to introduce people to as a "true" Walt Disney World original.
Kevin Page Florida I'm 46 years old and being going to WDW since I was 2 years old. Now being a father of 2 (15yr old & 5 yr old), I get to bring my own family to the parks and enjoy the CBJ. While we enjoy new and thrilling attractions, having a Magic Kingdom original, that you can sit down and enjoy and tell your kids "hey, I used to see this when I was your age" is something you can't put a value on. My 5 year old was especially enthralled when she saw this for the first time last month. I can't imagine it going away and not being able to experience it with her. Please keep the Country Bear Jamboree!
Christine Arena Rhode Island My family enjoys visiting the Country Bears multiple times every trip. I'll be heartbroken if we lose them. Please reconsider, and let us keep our bears!
Sophia Baine North Carolina The country bear jamboree was one of the most fun shows in Disney World. It’s high energy and funny. I just truly love it. The theming makes me feel like I’m actually in a jamboree. I really love it.
Bill D Virginia I remember the very first time I saw the Country Bears. I laughed so hard and fell in love with them. My favorite line is"The ones that turn me on, turn me down." Truer words were never sung or spoken. The last time I was at the Magic Kingdom, I was on a scooter, and while in Frontier Land, one of the Country Bears literally cleared a path all the way through the land for me to travel through. I laughed as people were moved out of the way by this loving Bear who wanted to make sure I could safely get through the land. We need this attraction. We need the Bears.
Nathan Hartman Florida The Country Bears are a wonderful staple of the Magic Kingdom. It's a great IP (yes Disney it's an IP) and could truly be utilized so much better. You don't use the other two shows (Vacation and Holiday). You hardly merchandise it. You haven't even tried to show it off in the TV or film medium for almost 20 years. It is you Disney who has not fostered the Country Bears but you certainly can. Please reconsider.
Lisa P. New York History. Walt. Frontierland. Give me the addresses. They are going to hear from me, a DVC member and stockholder.
Nicholas Daloia IL Country Bear Jamboree is a true Disney classic that I have always loved and adored. I have been looking forward to sharing the experience with my son time in and time out the same way my father shared it with me.
Anthony Letourneau MA Its a great attraction that is loved by many many guests. Such an attraction that has such a huge impact on WDW's history should not be removed for the 50th anniversary.
Jerry Leveillee FL We always enjoy the show when we're in Frontierland!
Tarah Menelly Florida I love this attraction. Please keep this attraction.
Irene Gunnels TX Please stop taking pieces of Walt away. When you lose the history of this company, you lose the heart.
Adrienne Allen Florida Laughter! One of the best things about going to DisneyWorld for me was that this attraction was still alive and well. I grew up going to Disneyland, we lost our version to a terrible Winnie The Pooh ride. SAVE THE COUNTRY BEARS
Kaden Renz Utah My parents went on one of their first dates ever to the magic kingdom. All the rides had long waits, but country bears was empty. So they watched the show many times. Now I feel like country bears is in my DNA
Billy . Walt Disney World is quickly becoming a very cold & unfamiliar place.
Brad . The departure of Country Bear Jamboree is indeed sad, I was sad when my last visit saw us as only part of a less than impressive throng of audience participants of about just over a dozen. Hopefully Disney can turn these lemons into lemonade.i was thinking of a table service dining experience on Tom Sawyer island (like BBQ) and move the clan of bears as part of the entertainment. Just a thought, Imaginears.
Jordan . Please, I beg, do not get rid of this ride. My gosh, honestly, how much more do the "old fans" have to suffer at the prospect of ushering in more and more people to the parks. This ride is one of the last pieces I have of my grandfather; it was his absolute favorite. These rides mean more to us than some might think. I will be deeply, deeply saddened if this rumor becomes a reality. Does Mr. Chapek not know the history of the parks, hotels, and locations he is trampling all over? Show some respect for ANYTHING Walt originally created.
kim l. I hope Disney doesn't close this attraction. I understand the park is not meant to be a museum and Walt wanted it constantly evolving, but also there should be some of the original rides/attractions left I think . Kids aren't the only ones going to the parks and some of us older generation would like to share our experiences with the younger generation. Do the parks need yet another Toy Story attraction being that there's a whole land in Hollywood Studios and a ride already in MK? Maybe a revamp of the show perhaps? Country Bears has such a nostalgia for me. My dad took me to Disney World when I was four and the two things I remember most about the whole trip was CB and the Haunted Mansion. I loved the bears so much that I must've talked about it alot as he bought me the record a year or so later. My cousin and I wore that record out! I hated to see the Great Movie Ride go. Now this! 🙁
Tim . If this truly happens it will be one of the final blows. That is ridiculous! I have been saving money to bring my family, quite large because we have adopted children, to WDW to worry the awesome park that I grew up with. Although I don't like the changes at EPCOT, I can at least perhaps see the reasoning behind it. This had no reason but perhaps greed. It is plain nonsense!
Bec . I would hate to see the bears go! Maybe an update/refresh would be great (mostly so you can hear them better!) But I love the Jamboree. And the Tiki room, Haunted mansion etc. I think the loss of the originals is such a shame. They have enough room to expand and update. Why not do that? Not everybody goes to Disney for new.
Andrew H. I'll start by saying that I love Toy Story. The first three movies were technically brilliant and had 'Disney heart' in abundance. But removing TCBJ means I have one less reason to visit WDW (to add to the many provided by the despoliation of Epcot Center). Starting with our first family visit to the Magic Kingdom in 1983, the joy that that show sparked in our multi-age group was infectious, and we still talk about it nearly 40 years later. We have visited and revisited so many times, and each and every time TCBJ has charmed our various groups - it's one of the few things we now find we can sit and enjoy together. By all means build a Toy Story marionette theater in Hollywood Studios. But let everyone continue to enjoy the Jamboree!
Wordvixen . Just chiming in for the execs that read this. The audacity of shuttering one of the original, most iconic, and fan-favorite attractions is bad enough. But to put in a Toy Story attraction that'll need to be replaced in 2 years when the novelty wears off? And to do it to CELEBRATE the 50th anniversary? Does ANYONE at Disney think about the long term effects of their decisions anymore?
Anita . I have such fond memories of Country bear Jubilee! It's clean family humor was great! No to another Toy Story spinoff.
Cory G. The Country Bear Jamboree is one of my favourite attractions at WDW, second only to the Haunted Mansion. It's a wonderful, delightful show and a welcome reprieve from the Florida heat. It's the quintessential WDW experience too... One of the few things it actually has above Disneyland. It's an original classic for WDW and an inextricable part of the fabric that makes Magic Kingdom unique. It was one of the things I was most looking forward to seeing when I went, and it didn't disappoint me. I loved it! Getting rid of it will absolutely cool off any desire I have to go to WDW again when Disneyland is a much shorter and more cost-effective trip for us. And it goes further than that, cooling off my interest in Disney altogether... We were ALREADY dealing with a diminishing interest in Disneyland due to all of its changes. Ripping out parts of New Orleans Square for Club 33, repeatedly vandalizing Pirates of the Caribbean, further diluting Main St., and truncating the Rivers of America make Disneyland less and less of a place we recognize and enjoy. After finally fixing California Adventure, they went and broke it again, removing my favourite ride there in the process, Tower of Terror. Why would we go back to DCA? For Grizzly Peak? Better than that, we've already made reservations for Yosemite next year. There's other places we can go that are much more cost-effective. This year we're going to the Grand Canyon (inspired by the DLRR and the Grand Canyon Diorama), and for the future are thinking of places like Hawaii and New Orleans. Taking out what we love in Disney parks doesn't make us just surrender to a diet of Toy Story and Star Wars marketing... It just makes us seek out the next closest real world inspiration for the things we actually loved and go there instead. My wife and I even ran a Disney blog of our own up to 2017, when we started losing interest in Disney parks because of this stuff. If they get rid of Country Bears in WDW and dull our interest in going back, then... well... there you go. That's it. Both US Disney parks become places that would be "nice" to go to but not places we'd really make time or spend money for. Not when there's a whole amazing world out there of unsimulated experiences and Disney only wants to shove Toy Story, Marvel, and Star Wars in my face. Things like Country Bears make WDW worth going to.
Maria . I agree. Hollywood studios in particular has lost many good attractions. I have been going since it first opened. My then 70yr old farher and 7 yr old son with me, all enjoyed the original format. The last few years has seen it loose it's way. We only go there now for the tower of terror and the rock n roll coaster (my father passed away at 94). We loved the movie set of New York, the Chinese theatre, the great movie ride, going in to look at how movies were made and bring included etc. All gone now. Likewise got rid of a great ride in the Kingdom, replaced by Buzz lightyear, its okay but . . Epcot, Frozen for NORWAY, so wrong, Frozen should be anywhere else but Epcot. Wonders of life pavillion, was great with cranium command and body wars. Funny and educational? Trying to turn epcot into just another theme park it is WRONG. More mickey big screen movies required as in UK magic of mickey/disney is being lost. Not on main syteam Tv. Kids don't know much about it. Don't ask/demand to go not excited. Universal calls. Just my thoughts from someone plus that 7rd old who still now go EVERY year, and who talks to the young 5 to 12 yr olds in the Uk!
T J. No imagination. Just adding attractions based on already produced movies. It's sad and disheartening and a little boring if not impersonal. This isn't what Walt Disney had in mind. Space Mountain, It's a Small World, Haunted Mansion. These have personality, character, interest. They don't make you feel like you're just being pushed through and advertisement.
Meeko . Right!? Us Disney people go for the Nostalgia and memories. Most of us Disney people are also AP & DVC members who travel to Disney multiple times a year and spend loads of money. The people who only plan trips for new attractions/lands are the ones that go to Disney once every few years. Disney makes their money from AP & DVC so why they would get rid of timeless and beloved attractions is beyond me 🙁
