Overview of Country Bear Jamboree

Queue information for Country Bear Jamboree
The overflow queue is outdoors in the sun. You’ll be let inside through a slim turnstile. Guests can request to bypass the turnstile by using the wheelchair entrance. Once inside the indoor queue room, you’ll wait about 10 minutes in an air conditioned area to be let into the theater. Guests with wheelchairs, ECVs or mobility issues should enter the building using the ramp to the left of the main door, and will wait in a roped-off area of the indoor queue room.
Seating for Country Bear Jamboree
The seats are padded benches with a partial back. (This is a thin padded section that goes across the upper back of an average sized adult.) Although they’re padded, its thin padding and we find that they feel hard.
Wheelchair info: There’s wheelchair/ECV seating in the front row, but the number of spots is limited. If they‘ve already filled when you arrive, you may need to wait for a later show. Guests in the first row will need to look up to view the stage, and some of the acts will be coming from the ceiling directly above their seating position.
Additional details about Big Thunder Mountain
Some of the Audio-Animatronics animals are stuffed heads on the wall. Though there’s nothing in this show designed to cause fear, some may find that a bit creepy.
Although many other sources we’ve read say that this show has a lot of humor, we find that it’s so subtle that most kids won’t pick up on the jokes. What there is of the humor is quite hokey, and we don’t hear much laughter from the audience.
Still, many people regard this show as classic Disney, and it has many fans. However most often we hear that this would be considered more of a “nice to do if you have time” attraction rather than a “must-see”. Here’s a guest with a point of view that we’ve heard repeatedly:
“I was looking at my watch the entire time. My kids (ages 4 and 6) found it mildly amusing, but I don’t think we would do this again on our next trip.”
As mentioned above, guests in the first row will need to look up to view the stage, and some of the acts will be coming from the ceiling directly above their seating position.
