The Bear Facts: Maybe the End of an Era

How many of you remember the bears?

Disneyland will dump its Country Bear Playhouse and
may replace it with Winnie the Pooh.

The 29-year-old attraction where mechanical bears sing and play musical instruments is scheduled to close
September ninth.

Al Lutz, creator of the unofficial Disney Web site Mouseplanet dot com says the playhouse could be replaced by a Winnie the Pooh
ride which is expected to open in 2003.

Disney spokesman Joe Aguirre has declined to comment on the Country Bear Playhouse replacement, saying
the entertainment giant has yet to make a decision.
