September 9, 2001 – The Country Bear Jamboree Closes in Disneyland

“The Wildest Show in the Wilderness”

On September 9, 2001, the long-running attraction Country Bear Jamboree closed in Disneyland’s Critter Country. Opening on March 24, 1972, and originally located in Bear Country, the Disneyland attraction was based on the original Walt Disney World attraction; the attraction was originally designed to be a show for the proposed Mineral King Ski Resort that was planned by Walt Disney in the 1960s. The attraction was closed to make way for the new Winnie the Pooh themed attraction, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. While open in Disneyland, there were many special-themed versions of the attraction that featured new sets and costumes, including the Country Bear Christmas Special, as well as the Country Bear Vacation Hoedown
