Ye Haa! It’s Bob! WDW’s Piano Man

Ya know, sometimes it’s just not Mickey, Minnie and the Princesses who get all the attention at Walt Disney World Resort! The parks and resorts have many popular entertainers, including the Dapper Dans, the JAMMitors and Mo’Rockin, to name a few. But perhaps, one of the most popular entertainers at WDW is Bob Jackson, also known as Ye Haa Bob

Bob has been playing to the crowds at WDW for over 16 years by combining his musical and comedic talents. You can catch his crowd-pleasing performance four nights a week at River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans Riverside Resort. You can sing along, or sit back and watch Bob do his thing!

Bob has been playing and composing music for many years (you can even buy his original music on his website). In addition to his own show at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside, he has performed at all of the Disney parks, Universal Citywalk, and Seaworld.

WDW Hints had the chance to ask Bob a few questions!

WDW Hints: What is your favorite music to play when you are by yourself?

Bob: When I’m at home and want to play for myself, I usually play classical music. I love to play Bach, Debussy, Schumann, and others.

WDW Hints: If you couldn’t play at Riverside anymore, where would you want to play on a regular basis on Disney property?

Bob: If I wasn’t performing at Port Orleans Riverside, I would be happy performing anywhere I could! I have subbed at Coke Corner in the Magic Kingdom, and the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. I used to play the piano in the Diamond Horseshoe Revue and the keyboard in the Tarzan show.

WDW Hints: What other WDW Cast Member role would you enjoy having, if you weren’t playing at Riverside?

Bob: If I weren’t doing my show at the Port, I’d probably try and work in Imagineering with their music department. I could write and orchestrate original music for the different shows and parks. I’d also like to write and develop a Disney Children’s TV Show.

Ye Haa Bob reminds me of the Sherman Brothers. Full of energy, talent and that special Disney magic. Remember, you can catch Bob four nights a week at River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans Riverside Resort. Check out his website for his complete schedule. And tell him WDW Hints sent ya!

A special thanks to Bob for taking time out of his schedule to answer WDW Hints’ questions!
