    I don’t have kids, but 5 think My favorite attraction for kids at WDW would be Country Bear Jamboree. We need to teach the children to appreciate the classics, especially Bunny, Bubbles, and Beulah!

      Country Bear Jamboree is indeed a classic. Little tykes love singing bears. Have a magical day!
