Yehaa Bob Jackson is a musician who had been performing in Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside for 23 years before the closing of Disney World in 2020.
After the reopening of Disney World in July 2020, Yehaa Bob was not invited to perform again. But, he announced not long ago that he would return to Port Orleans from reopening on October 14th. This is today! We visited to see his performance, which now looks a little different, and here’s why.
To his Facebook, Jackson announced that there are restrictions on its performance right now due to COVID-19, including not being able to perform singing music or encouraging the audience to sing.
Tonight we went to the River Roost Lounge to see the return of Yehaa Bob, and we were definitely not the only ones there!

The place was PACKED. As a there are zero seats in the room.
Said one of our new friends some people had been waiting in the River Roost Lounge since 6 p.m. to get front row seats. (Yehaa Bob did not arrive until about 8:30 PM).
This could be because Boatwright’s Dining Hall is not currently open at Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside … but honestly, most people here were here for Bob. Some people even had T-shirts and signs celebrating his return!
Yehaa Bob even signed a few autographs before going on stage around 8:30 p.m. tonight.
His performance was as fun and crazy as the guests have expected.
He sang a bit, including some old favorites …
… and I also played the piano.
He usually acts Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at the River Roost Lounge from approx 20:30 at midnight, although he will not be there next Saturday.
