More entertainment is returning to Walt Disney World as Bob Jackson, also known as ‘Yehaa Bob’, just confirmed he will be coming back to Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside!
In case you are not aware, Bob Jackson, also known as ‘Yehaa Bob’, was a Disney World entertainment performer for 23 years. Guests could find him putting on a fun and unique show over at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside almost every night as ‘Yehaa Bob’ played the piano, sang familiar tunes, and somehow managed to get every person up and out of their seats — creating memories that would last a lifetime.
Unfortunately, ‘Yehaa Bob’ was part of the massive layoffs last year due to the ongoing pandemic, and he was unsure if he would return to the Walt Disney Company. This news affected many Disney fans as not long after the layoff was announced, a Change.org petition surfaced, asking Disney to re-hire ‘Yehaa Bob’ at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside.
Now, nearly one year later, we have some great news to share as Bob Jackson himself confirmed that he would be returning to Port Orleans Riverside when it reopens to Guests next month!
In a TikTok video, Bob Jackson said that Disney called him this afternoon asking him to return to his stage at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside on October 14! Check out the video, which was reposted by disneyrecordguy, below or by clicking here:
