Country Bears Christmas Special Disney

Years ago there were a lot more Christmas celebrations at the Magic Kingdom, including special rides for the season.

One of these was the Country Bear Christmas Special.

This was one of two special versions of the Country Bears that took over the theater throughout the years.

It was literally themed as the bears from the normal show putting on a Christmas show. They all get Christmas outfits and the stage is covered in Snowmen and winter backdrops.

The bears all sing songs of the season, from Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, to Sleigh Ride, to Blue Christmas. Except for one bear, Big Al who in typical not fitting in sings a new years song (what song depends on where you watch the show).

There was only one major change in the show throughout the years, cutting the final scene of Buff, Max, and Melvin.

This had varying levels of popularity throughout the years it was open at Disney World and Disneyland, and it is still open yearly at Tokyo Disneyland.

The exact reason this stopped being shown in the US Disney Parks was not publicized, with the main rumors being either it was too expensive to install or the rights ran out on the song Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.
