Description And Comments
The unfortunately named Billy Hill and the Hillbillies consists of a quartet of master bluegrass fiddlers who also happen to be born comics. The show is double-over funny, zany, and totally engaging. And did we mention the fiddling is phenomenal? At the end of the show, we noticed something we've never seen at any Disney stage production - the audience refused to leave. Instead, they stood clapping and cheering like at a rock concert, trying to bring back the performers for an encore. They stayed at it so long that the fiddlers were forced to return and take a second bow (though they didn't perform another song). Still the audience lingered, departing only reluctantly after many minutes. We classify Billy Hill and the Hillbillies as not to be missed.
In the summer of 2012, the Hillbillies were relocated to the stage behind Big Thunder Ranch; if they continue to draw a crowd there, the move may prove long-term. Check a Times Guide to verify their location for the day.
In November 2013, the Disney Parks Blog announced that--after a run of more than 20 years--the Billies will hold their final show on Monday, January 6, 2014.
- We rate this attraction as Not To Be Missed.
Delightfully zany show; food is available.
