Walt Disney World is constantly moving forward and enhancing its experiences — Whether that be completely retheming certain attractions (For example, Splash Mountain will soon be turned into a The Princess and the Frog-themed ride) or just performing general maintenance to ensure the rides are running smoothly.

Now, it looks as though Country Bear Jamboree will be the next attraction to get generalized construction work, according to a new permit filed.

Disney recently filed a permit for the location of Country Bear Jamboree inside Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World for “general construction”. Though the permit does not list any other information, Disney could have filed this for a number of reasons.

First, this permit could be for cosmetic construction work, including small maintenance updates to make sure the show is in tip-top shape for Guests.

Another reason could be relating to the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. Perhaps, the theme park is going to bring in certain elements of the EARidescent theme to Country Bear Jamboree, just as they have for other attractions including Peter Pan’s Flight, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel.

Disney could also just want to make sure that all the animatronics are working properly ahead of the big celebration so that those traveling to Magic Kingdom during this milestone will be able to watch the show as if it were brand new!

At this time, this is pure speculation and the reasoning as to why this general construction permit was filed is unknown. Inside the Magic will update you as we get information regarding Country Bear Jamboree.

Country Bear Jamboree
Have a knee-slappin’ good time at this jolly country-and-western musical revue starring a cast of singing bears.

This Hootenanny is a Real Hoot
Step inside the rustic theater known as Grizzly Hall and take your seat before the lights dim. Clap along as 18 Audio-Animatronics hillbilly bears play and sing during this 16-minute, foot-stompin’ cele-bear-tion. You’ll hear a medley of original and classic tunes—all performed by the zaniest critters in the woods.

Overflowing with humor, heart and a few surprises, this crowd-pleasing show features a down-home, southern sensibility you and your cubs will love.

Walt Disney’s Pawprints
Country Bear Jamboree is one of the very last attractions that Walt Disney personally helped develop. Originally planned for a never-built Disney ski resort in Mineral King, California, the show with the singing bears happily moved out to Florida in 1971 and has been performing daily at Magic Kingdom park ever since.
