The Country Bear Jamboree in Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom reopened this week after being closed for a rehab/refurbishment.
The previous show has been shortened by about 5 minutes. A few songs are gone, others have been shortened. Some of the dialogue between the bears is also gone.
New costumes and make overs for the bears brighten things back up. Also new are the benches, curtains and backdrops.
Disney Imagineers share their thoughts about the new show.
Here are before and after shots of the performers.
