Big Al In Front of Country Bear Jamboree

Big Al Character Frontierland Disney World

The Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom reopened today to the public amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic so we are sharing a look at something that was lost in order for the parks to reopen. Roaming characters.

Disney World had relatively few roaming characters, but they were always something special when you came across them, especially the Country Bears who were a regular feature of the entertainment of Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom.

It will be a long time before wandering characters return, if ever, so let us appreciate them while the parks undergo changes, unlike anything they have ever seen before.
