Bob Jackson, affectionately known as Yehaa Bob Jackson, announced half an hour ago that his act will not return to Walt Disney World.
Jackson, who has been performing at Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside for 23 years, revealed the news in a post on his official Facebook account. Read his post below:
“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’ve 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.”
For those who don’t know, here’s a brief overview of Jackson’s iconic act:
“A playful piano show for all ages: head over to this cozy club [River Roost Lounge] at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and enjoy boogie-woogie musical stylings and comedy from a local legend. Sing along to Disney standards, songbook classics and kid-friendly ditties.
