DDV #80 - Country Bear Jamboree Holiday Hoedown

This the story about the Country Bears, and in particular the Holiday Hoedown show. I give some insights into the attraction, and play the audio for you.

 The show ran from 1984 until about 2000, and was a bit of fun. The entire building was redecorated, and the bears were wearing holiday costumes. And the script and songs were different.

 It was kind of fun to get into the holiday spirit.  For me personally, it was always fun to try and time a visit so I could catch the show, since it had a limited run.

DDV #79 - My holiday experience as a CastMember

Back in 1992, when I was a CastMember, I had the pleasure of working over the holidays. This podcast is a story about that time, and in particular my experience on New Year's eve. It was a really fun time, and I still remember it fondly - so I thought I'd share the story.
