Disneyland to retire Billy Hill and the Hillbillies after more than 20 years in the park
Disney just announced that after more than twenty years of performing at the Disneyland Resort, Billy Hill and the Hillbillies
are set to retire January 6, 2014
. Recently, the Hillbillies have been performing outside in the Big Thunder Ranch Festival Arena during seasonal events after a long stint inside the Golden Horseshoe.
This news is still a surprise, but with the recent canceling of the popular Minnie's Fly Girls, it seemed only a matter time before another beloved entertainment option was cut around the Resort.
