A group of die-hard Disney fans are fighting to keep their favorite Disneyland attraction from retiring. The loosely organized group, led in part by Orange resident Steve Iversen, is hoping to keep Billy Hill and the Hill Billies alive by writing letters and filling comment cards. See, after 21 years performing their Western-themed music comedy performance at the Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland, Billy Hill and The Hillbillies are scheduled to retire Jan. 6.
"[The show's] been there forever," Iversen said. "Everyone's grown up with it and every season they change the show so you never see the same show twice. The kids like it because of the music; the adults like it because of the comedy. There's a little something for everyone."More »
