My most recent trip to Disney World included my first experience at a moderate resort. I’m very happy with the one we chose and part of the reason is because of Yehaa Bob Jackson.
Most people who have stayed at Port Orleans Riverside know who Yehaa Bob Jackson is. He is a one man show and he is very entertaining. Between the fun songs, the moving piano, and the audience interaction, this is a show that everyone should see at least once.
The show takes place at the River Roost lounge, which is right off the lobby at Port Orleans Riverside. The lounge has a very welcoming feel. When my friend and I went for drinks we felt like we could have stayed there all night. It’s just a fun atmosphere.
Bob has his own website where you can check his schedule, yehaabob.com, but can usually be found at the River Roost lounge Wednesdays through Saturdays. He is definitely an entertainer and knows how to get the crowd involved in his shows. While we were there he kept asking “Are you sure my hair looks okay?” and the whole room would respond with “You look great Bob!”
The music is fun too. He will switch between Disney songs and other fun non-Disney songs, like “Great Balls of Fire” or “Sweet Caroline.” The songs kept everyone engaged and singing along. See the video below for an example of some of the songs he sings.
In addition to alcoholic beverages, the River Roost lounge also serves some appetizers. Some of the snacks you can order are N’Orleans Nachos, Pirogue Platter, and Mardi Gras Fritters. You can enjoy your food and your drinks on one of their comfy chairs or sofas, or at one of the tables by the stage. They also have a waitstaff who will take your orders from wherever you are sitting in the lounge.
Bob performs two shows every Wednesday through Saturday, 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. After the show he invites guests to come up to the stage and take pictures with him. You never know, you might end up on Bob’s Facebook page!
Bob also does private parties and works with Give Kids the world. You can find out more on his website.
If you are looking for a fun time and a good place to relax, then I highly recommend checking out one of Yehaa Bob’s shows at the River Roost Lounge. Even if you are not staying at Port Orleans Riverside, it’s worth the trip. With the ambiance and the show, it’s a great way to spend a night at Disney World!
