Country Bears Meet and Greet in NEW Musical Jamboree Costumes

The Country Bears that meet and greet guests at the Magic Kingdom have new costumes to match their attire in the Musical Jamboree. The costumes were revealed at a media event today and will debut to guests “in the future.” The new version of the Country Bear Jamboree opens on July 17, 2024.

Country Bears Meet and Greet Costumes

For the new Country Bear Musical Jamboree, each character has a new costume. The meet and greet costumes have been updated to match. For comparison, see each character with a new costume in the show.

Big Al now wears a pale tan hat and a red vest with gold embroidery. Big Al’s new outfit is probably the most similar to his old look, which also included a lightly-colored hat and a plain red-orange vest. Below is a photo of Big Al from a few years ago for comparison.
