Country Bear Musical Jamboree Update

Hey Disney Vacationers! Hold onto your cowboy hats and prepare for a rootin’-tootin’ good time as the upcoming Country Bear Musical Jamboree at the Magic Kingdom shares a glimpse of what’s to come this summer! That’s right, folks—our favorite bear performers, Bunny, Bubbles, and Beulah, are donning brand-new costumes that promise to dazzle and delight. Let’s dive into this Country Bear Musical Jamboree update!

Behind-the-Seams with Disney’s Costume Magic

In a captivating new behind-the-scenes video, we get an exclusive look at the magic that brings these vibrant new costumes to life. Meet Sara Landesberg, a talented costumer from Disney Live Entertainment, who is at the forefront of this exciting transformation. Sara and her team are the wizards behind the curtain, meticulously coordinating every detail from fabric selection to the final stitch.

Crafting Costumes for Audio-Animatronics

What makes dressing the Country Bears a unique challenge? Unlike human performers, these are Audio-Animatronics figures, each with their own set of mechanical movements. Sara explains the intricate process: “I help source all the fabrics and components, including every single rhinestone. We work closely with the patterning team to ensure the costumes not only look good but function perfectly with the bears’ repetitive movements.”

To prevent wear and tear from these movements, the team incorporates innovative solutions like gussets and extra fabric pockets. This allows the bears to move freely without risking damage to their dazzling outfits.

A New Era of Country Bear Jamboree

The refreshed Country Bear Musical Jamboree isn’t just about new costumes—it’s a whole new show! Drawing inspiration from the Opry-style shows of Nashville, the updated jamboree will blend nostalgia with a modern twist. The bears will perform reinterpreted Disney tunes across various country music genres, from bluegrass to rockabilly.

A Nod to the Past with a Glimpse of the Future

True fans will appreciate the thoughtful easter eggs sprinkled throughout the show, including nods to original tunes that long-time admirers will recognize and love. It’s a celebration of the Country Bears’ rich history while paving the way for a new generation of fans to enjoy this whimsical attraction.

Why This Update Matters

This update to the Country Bear Musical Jamboree is a testament to Disney’s commitment to keeping its classic attractions fresh and exciting. By infusing new life into the show, Disney ensures that it remains a beloved part of the Magic Kingdom experience for years to come.

So, if you’re visiting Frontierland later this summer, be sure to check out the new and improved Country Bear Musical Jamboree. With its vibrant new costumes and refreshed musical lineup, it’s sure to be a toe tapping good time. Let the good times roll as Bunny, Bubbles, and Beulah take the stage in style, proving once again that Disney magic is always in the air!
