While I was growing up, one of my favorite shows at Disneyland was the Country Bear Jamboree. Sadly, it closed in 2001. I still get a little sad walking through that area of the park, knowing I won’t ever get to see that show again. However, Disney kept with the bear theme, and introduced Critter Country with Pooh and Friends in the same location.
Bring your autograph book. Because you’ll see Pooh, Tigger, and Eeyore at scheduled times throughout the day. Look for them just outside the exit of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride.
I also like this spot for a different reason. Just as you exit the Winnie the Pooh ride, you can walk right into Pooh’s Corner. It’s a small and often uncrowded gift and sweet shoppe where you can get the infamous Tigger Tail, or its close sibling, the chocolate and caramel-dipped marshmallow wand. This is one of my favorites and a must have on every visit. You can also see various treats being made here. A big picture window lets you get an up-close look at Cast Members making chocolates, candies, cookies, and other favorites. Stop by anytime, and they’ll be making a variety of treats for the park.
