River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans Riverside

Take a Look Back in Time...

Curl up in one of the overstuffed chairs next to the fireplace, or belly up to the bar — the River Roost is the place to gather for an ice-cold beer, Southern-style specialty drinks and the best appetizers this side of Sassagoula. Sip a Hurricane, Sassagoula Sunset or Bayou Bloody Mary as you soak up the riverside romance, this is a great place to grab a nightcap after an exciting day exploring the parks.

Playing at the River Roost Lounge on Wednesday through Saturday evenings from 8:30pm until a little before midnight is the famed “Ye Haa” Bob Jackson. Bob performs a very popular piano sing-along comedy show with lots of audience participation. I’d suggest getting there a bit early to grab the best seats — Bob will usually be hanging around before the show getting to know the evening’s audience, so do let him know if you’re celebrating something, on your honeymoon, or just want to request a song.

Bob has been performing at the River Roost Lounge since May 1997 and you can check out his website for more information at www.yehaabob.com or leave him a message on Facebook. The shows are always lively and fun, and are well worth a visit for all the family — but please remember the local 21+ drinking age restrictions! Also, the entertainment can be quite loud and involving, so if you’re looking for a more intimate, quiet drink you may prefer to visit the lounge on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday instead.

A large screen TV is available for sports events/etc.

Disney’s “Tables in Wonderland” discount card is accepted at this location.

Opening Hours: 4pm — midnight

As part of the 2008 Mousefest event, the Disney Podcast Network held a Bob Jackson Meet at Port Orleans Riverside’s River Roost Lounge on Thursday 11 December 2008 at 8pm. It wasn’t a formal event, anyone was welcome to turn up and meet fellow Disney fans for a friendly nightcap. A few pictures from the meet are here on flickr.

Bob Jackson featured as a guest on the 23rd February 2010 edition of the Main Street Mugs Live podcast. The full show can be heard on their website or you can downloaded it as an MP3 file.

More recently, the WDW Radio Show episode 360 featured a live interview with Bob, which can also be downloaded as an MP3 file.
