I've noticed that the Country Bear shows were more fun with packed houses. Building twin theaters at Disneyland was a mistake because fewer shows were "sell outs." So having more shows per day might make the WDW shows less exciting if the shows are playing to depressing, half-full houses. On the least crowded days Disney World should bring back the countdown and have more time in-between these shows.
These bears are more personified than the Tiki Room (birds, flowers, totem polls, etc.), so it seems less impressive to me today because I think (And Flynnibus would disagree) that AAs should have advanced more and the bears movements should be more impressive & creative today. This ride was an amazing good time at WDW back in the 1970s. Now I guess I should go on it because we don't have it at Disneyland.
If AA advances eventually merit it, and if space could be made for it on the West side of the tracks near Disneyland's New Orleans Square train station, a jazz show similar to Country Bears (with no bears--well, maybe Big Al's cousin) could perform there. I'd like the human CM who starts the show to be a good singer and act as the MC and join in singing one song and in the finale. And maybe give microphones to a couple of audience members at one point after some pre-show auditions who could also join in a song and the finale. (When the Saints Go Marching In)
