PHOTOS: Mysterious Netting Installed Above Country Bear Jamboree in the Magic Kingdom

Guests at the Magic Kingdom will have to bear with a bit of mystery.

Netting has been installed on the balcony of the entrance to Country Bear Jamboree, though its purpose currently remains unknown.

The dark mesh-like fabric obscures the “Grizzly Hall” signage, with some of it ending just short of the attraction’s marquee.

At this time, we can only speculate what the netting is there for. One theory is that it could be there to deter birds or bats from nesting on the roof. Recently, Universal Orlando Resort had to contend with an osprey nesting on the track of the yet-to-be-announced “Velocicoaster” under construction at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Walt Disney World may be trying to avoid a similar situation.

Another idea is that it could be part of the park’s Halloween decorations. Earlier this month, we reported that the park would still be festively decorated for the holiday in spite of the cancellation of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2020.

  1. Probably to discourage birds from nesting as the bears are using the walkway up there now to greet guests from.

  2. So on your note of deterring birds there are actually four or five bats that live in that section of the roof. So it could possibly be deterring them from coming back to that spot.
