    Country Bear Christmas Special not happening this year?

    From WDWMagic:

    It is being strongly tipped that this year, the long running Country
    Bear Christmas Special will not take place. Various reasons have
    been put forward, including the thought that the cost of the
    Christmas makeover does not translate into increased attendance for
    the attraction. From what we have been told, this does not indicate
    an end for the regular Country Bears show, but for this year at
    least, there will be no Christmas special, unless there is a last
    minute change of plan.
    _----------------------------------------------------------

    I've been doing a bit of thinking on this. Given the fact that they
    refurbed the three Henry AAs within the past two years(Stage 2 Henry
    in 2004, and the other two earlier this year), they probably
    originally only had enough cash to only fix one or two bears a year
    and do the Christmas changeover. By sacrificing the Christmas
    Special this year, they MIGHT be saving up to do a larger scale
    refurb in the future, due to all the problems that have popped up in
    this past year(Trixie's eyes from last August, Liver Lips' akward
    head position, him and Al making sucking noises, the finale BGM
    conking out, etc.)

    But this is only my guess folks. Here's hoping for the positive
    outcome...

    It just plain sucks.
    They treat The Country Bear Jamboree like an outcast that doesn't deserve even the slightest maintainence--the sound has been in bad condition for years.
    Terrible.

    Those ******* MK managers can just go **** ********** with their *** **** excuses. I hope for christmas they get jack ****.

    I guess it's too much for the most attended theme park in the world to do a little extra for the holidays for free (with admision!)


    (Wow, I guess I just kinda dislike MK's management; and it doesn't hurt that I love the CBJ x-mas special. )

    Here's hoping the spirits of christmas make a visit and get the plans to change at the last minute. I love the Christmas show. In fact, I love everything Disney does for the Christmas holidays. It will be a shame if they cheap out on this treat.

    Let Phil Holmes, Meg Crofton, Al Weiss and Jay Rasulo know how you feel ... they think that WDW doesn't have to do anything special for the holidays other than constantly add private party nights at the MK at $35-40 a pop.

    If you feel otherwise, let them know ... it likely won't make a difference, but it will pi$$ them off and that's got to be worth something, right?

    Re: Country Bear Christmas Special not happening this year?

    I sent a brief email to WDW guest relations expressing my disappointment about this. Although I'm slightly disappointed the overlay will not be in place during my visit in a few weeks, I'm more disappointed WDW may enact further cuts.

    Yesterday, I received a voice mail from WDW guest relations. The guy who called confirmed there will be no Country Bear Holiday Show this year. He apologized and thanked me many times for contacting them. No number of emails or letters will bring us the Holiday Show this year, but perhaps enough expressions of concern will prevent more cutbacks.

    the holiday show hasn't been promoted in years and as much as I like it, I doubt that it increases attendance. unfortunately as I said before, it's the only thing other than decorations that MK does for the holiday. Epcot and MGM have all the holiday stuff for some reason. I guess they figure you go to the MK anyway why do something special. personally I would rather not have the christmas parties and have the special holiday entertainment start earlier. like the shows and holiday wishes and parade

    Re: Country Bear Christmas Special not happening this year?

    Hi all,

    I sent both an email to guest relations communications and a letter to Phil Holmes office. Thursday I recieved a phone call from Lucretia (sp?) at the WDW Exeutive Offices. She informed me that the Exe. offices have decided, due to public opinion, thaty they would not makeover the CBJ for Christmas.

    They were aware that many were dissatisfied with this decision but this is the course they were going to follow.
