Yehaa Bob Jackson Is Returning To Disney’s Port Orleans Resort!

Flashback to a year ago in September of 2020, we learned that the legendary performer, Yehaa Bob Jackson, was being let go after working 23 years at Walt Disney World. Yehaa Bob Jackson called the River Roost Lounge at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort home and played regularly as he used his talents to tickle the ivory keys, sing, and entertain happy Disney Guests. Now, we’re learning the exciting news that Yehaa Bob Jackson is RETURNING to Disney’s Orleans Resort!

COVID 19 shut down Walt Disney World, leaving many of the talented Cast Members that were entertainers without a position. In September 2020, Bob Jackson’s shared via his Facebook page: “And that’s how it ends, not with a bang but with a whimper. I’ve just learned my act will not be returning to Disney. I made so many friends over the last 23 years, it was a great time, we had a lot of laughs together. I’ll be continuing my Sunday shows for now. I’ll keep you posted, I’m still digesting all of this-“.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
