This is no bueno. I love them! - Prettynpink1023  284.3 #1020 5:27PM
Super bummed....I won't be back before then.  - Jewelz  557.9 #363 5:46PM
no way my favorite performers are ending what else is going to happen or going to change a Disneyland - GiantsFan2010  213.2 #1826 5:47PM
That's a shame! They are very fun to watch - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #644 5:48PM
I am so bummed! The Billy's are the best! I love to watch them perform. ๐Ÿ˜ช - BRabbit  744.3 #261 7:42PM
by the responses I read about this, this is a very unpopular decision.  I wonder if it was their idea to retire or at least I hope so, their shows are always packed!!  - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 7:47PM
Oh, heck no! Why?  - kueenofhearts  282.2 #1041 7:47PM
We talked to the Billys last summer and they were not happy about being moved to Big Thunder Ranch from the Golden Horseshoe.   I remember that the Horseshoe was always packed when they played there.   I think that if this is a DL decision,  they are making a huge mistake.  - MikeyMouse  145.1 #2794 7:55PM
It was a mistake to move them out to Big Thunder Ranch -  they do better in the smaller venue. This is so depressing!!! - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #329 8:05PM
No way!!! Kirk Wall is one of the very best performers they have there. I love Billy Hill and the Hillbillies. So sad ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #329 8:04PM
Me too!! I've always had a thing for "Elvis Billy".. Kirk's personality is so outrageously funny.. One of a kind! - London-In-Wonderland  451.0 #488 11:48PM
After 20 years of doing the act everyday, maybe they need a break. - JungleBum  1017.0 #182 8:15PM
I could understand a break. Would be nice to hear from the hillbillies and see what their plans are. - friendlymouse  727.9 #266 8:24PM
I hope we get to see you on out next visit Baloo!! We will be there Dec 2-6, hope u are working...where should we look for you? - MinnieTinker  617.4 #330 8:27PM
I've literally been sobbing. I love them so much! Hubby says on Friday we're going to go and watch as many shows as I want. I have such great memories of them. Scaring me in line for Conjuring a Villain, stopping and running over to me because he saw me taking pictures, just always making goofy faces at me and recognizing I was there.....again. And hearing my Mom say, "You know whose favorite song this was? your grandfather's." every time they played it. I'm so upset I can't remember the name of the song right now. She said it every time. LOL The day robmurrow came to watch the goat run I'd watched the show 3 times. I'm heartbroken. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 8:23PM
๐Ÿ˜ขI'm so sorry!  - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1421.8 #121 8:24PM
Thank you๐Ÿ˜˜ - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 10:07PM
I am so depressed about this and mad at Disney for their bonehead decision that I don't even want to go back there right now! Ugh... - debbiev  1170.7 #151 10:25PM
TBBT tomorrow!!! Bust out those favorite Billy pics everyone!! - aphboomwha  137.6 #2925 8:32PM
So sorry to hear that. They are the best. Luckily enough, my wife and I will be there on Monday to see them for the last time. - truk78  15.9 #8320 8:33PM
We will hate to see them go ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ญwe make sure to see them in a few weeks! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 8:46PM
This is so sad for me.... I remember them when they use to preform on the streets of Bear Country, Critter Country and Froniterland....I know that things are always changing and I hope its for the fact that they are trying to cut back again on atmosphere entertainment...I know that they are not on the same page but I heard the same for the Ellis Isle boys.....I hope Disneyland is not going in that direction where stuff like this did not matter......crossing fingers and hoping all is well with them and its a two way road - Dave  13495.4 #2 11:54PM
Super sad to hear this :( this is an annual tradition to go and see them each time we are there. My dad is going to be even more heart broken since he will go a few times during our stays. Just really bummed to read this  - brodysmommy  430.9 #508 7:25AM
NOOOOOOO!!! :( - MamaRoo  466.7 #465 8:34AM
Very sad-trying not to cry in my oatmeal as I get ready to head to class - TrampsLady  1641.8 #102 8:37AM
Are they retiring or is Disney retiring them?Not happy with some of the recent changes Disney has been making. - Winnie111286  12308.7 #4 9:22AM
Disney is retiring the act, they are not retiring just because they are being laid off. Most of them are not retirement age, but they will lose their jobs and their benefits. BIG bummer! - debbiev  1170.7 #151 6:12PM
I guess good things do have to end.  I'm glad I can see them one more time. - ManeStreetMufasa  10.5 #10657 11:56AM
No! LOL - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 3:43PM
๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญnooooooo they were always so good - joyful_belle131  59.4 #4450 12:05PM
Monkey Boy will be seriously bummed:( - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 1:32PM
Sad, but I'm wondering if they were just tired of being moved around. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 1:58PM
NOOOOOO!!!!!! Say it isn't so!  This news really sucks!  I love going to to see them!  Oh, the horror! - widowtallan  288.1 #989 4:27PM
I am so sad to see them go. I do agree it has something to do with them being moved over to Big Thunder Ranch. Disney is not making a very good decision. I will be there Saturday and will make sure to see them with my grandson. He has always loved the Billy's.  - deppfan  33.4 #5675 8:52PM
So sad ... One of our favorites to see ... We had the nicest talk with Billy after a show as we sat on a bench outside ... Will miss them all - pamntink  54.2 #4612 8:41AM
๐Ÿ˜ฉNOOOOOOOOO - MaleficentLuv  63.7 #4323 11:32AM

Ah man I'm super bummed ๐Ÿ˜žI won't get to see them before they retire the show - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 7:43AM
I hope Disney changes their decision! Keep Billy and the Hillbillies, PLEASE! I was to add my agreement that they should be moved back to the Golden Horseshoe. ย Another act could perform at the Jamboree. - MrsFletch  234.4 #1550 7:45AM
