On our last trip in April our group of Disney fans headed over to the River Roost at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort for one of the best times ever. the : Yehaa Bob Show. Bob Jackson has been working in Walt Disney World for over 12 years.
The lounge is small so if you want a good viewing place I would say get there by 7:30 also because Bob will arrive at Port Orleans at 8:00 and make his way around the room to meet everyone. When he came around to our table I had no idea why he was asking all the questions but I found out later when his amazing memory took us to songs including all the information he had just gained by talking to everyone in the audience. he can remember everyone’s name and where they’re from! Most of our group were called by name all evening.
We had so much fun being kids again and singing and dancing and not caring who saw us. We sang Spongebob and Oscar meyer weiner songs. he also sang some old songs and wow can he play the piano. This guy went non stop for and hour and half, he sang, danced and played the whole time. I have never seen anyone with so much energy and personality.
After the show you can go up and meet him and get your photo with him. He has been awarded the most coveted thing Disney can give..the .prestigious Walt Disney Legacy Award. The award is the highest honor a Cast Member can receive and it is given for keeping the magic alive through exemplary performance and commitment to the traditions and ideals established by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
So if you have some free time go over to Port Orleans Riverside and grab a bite to eat and then go over to the River Roost and catch this fantastic show, its well worth it. You WILL have fun and I bet you won’t stay in your seat! I highly recommend this with a group and kids will love it also.
The River Roost Lounge offers appetizers such as beef nachos and buffalo chicken nuggets. The lounge features live entertainment by Bob Jackson Wednesday through Saturday evenings. It is a piano sing-a-long comedy routine. Bob has the energy of 10 eight year old children and does not take a break until an hour and a half into his show. It’s quite lively and extremely entertaining for the whole family with tons of audience participation. The place fills up quick, so get there before the show starts at 8:30pm. He’s been doing this at Port Orleans Riverside since 1997 and you can find his schedule on his website.
