Bunny, Bubbles and Beeeeulah!

Tokyo Disneyland's Country Bear Jamboree is located in Westernland. They have two separate theaters that are usually operating simultaneously, and Tokyo rotates ALL THREE versions of the show throughout the year. They will run the "Christmas Special/Jingle Bell Jamboree" for the holidays, then switch to the original version of the show after New Year's, and then switch again to "Vacation Hoedown" when summertime comes. I LOVE that they do this! Once Anaheim switched to the "Vacation Hoedown" version back in the mid 1980's, we never saw the original version again.....they would only switch back and forth between the Christmas and Vacation Hoedown versions and then ultimately, they gutted the building for a great big pile of Pooh. Sorry, pun intended.

"All the guys that turn me on, turn me down......"

"Jing-a'ling, Jing-a'ling, Jing-a'ling-a'ling......"

"The West Coast has the sunshine and the bears all get so tan....."

Okay, "Vacation Hoedown" was always my least favorite of the three shows. It just seemed to lack the heart of the other two, but it was still a hundred times better than Anaheim's Pooh ride. Shame on you Disney! Shame, shame, shame!

We can always hope that Pooh bites the dust and the bears return one day to Anaheim where they belong! Great post - thanks!

I'm with you Dave. Here's to hoping! I wonder if they would ever consider it for DCA?

It would be a natural for the Grizzly Peak area, but so far I haven't heard anything about it being part of the makeover.
