Details are scarce, but we are happy to make stuff up.

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Rumors have been swirling around the Magic Kingdom of a possible permanent end to the Country Bear Jamboree. Uncle Walt’s Insider of course predicted this after several guests were mauled by the Country Bears last year.

But now we can report that the Bears are not going away forever, but will soon join another closed attraction, Stitch’s Great Escape.

“This is a perfect solution,” says Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation). “We can use the current Jamboree space for a new guest experience [Ed.: the rumored Toy Story-themed sit-down churro restaurant]. At the same time, we can breathe new life into a currently-unused attraction.

“If this works, the possibilities for future crossover attractions are limitless. Mary Poppins and Tron, perhaps? The Lion King fighting off Cruella DeVil? The Muppets added to literally anything that doesn’t have Muppet-y goodness already?”
