March 24, 1972 – The Country Bear Jamboree Opens in Disneyland

“Have a knee-slappin’ good time at Country Bear Jamboree!”

On March 24, 1972, the Audio-Animatronic attraction Country Bear Jamboree opened in Disneyland’s Bear Country (now Critter Country). Based on the original Walt Disney World attraction that opened in 1971, the attraction features 18 bears singing and dancing in a country-music themed show. The attraction had been planned since the 1960s, as it was originally intended to be part of the Mineral King Ski Resort. The Disneyland attraction was renamed the Country Bear Playhouse in 1986, but was eventually closed on September 9, 2001; it was replaced with the new Winnie the Pooh attraction.
