Disney World fan favorite Yehaa Bob was injured in auto accident December 28th, 2016. He was on his way to work when he was rear ended and taken to the hospital. Though sore Bob sustained no serious injuries and plans to be back to work for his New Year’s Eve show.
Who is Yehaa Bob
Bob is a popular musician and comedian at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside resort. He performs several nights a week (usually two shows) at the River Roost. Although the River Roost is technically a lounge it is open to all ages so everyone can enjoy Bob and his antics.
Yehaa Bob (real name Bob Jackson) blends singing and comedy while he plays a piano that is quite literally rocking. (Check it out in the video below!) He encourages his audience to get involved too and his shows are usually crowded.
So how big a deal is Bob? He has his own page on the official Disney Site.
For years people have showed up early to be among the first to enter the Magic Kingdom. As a bonus they got to see the Magic kingdom welcome show. But now Disney is replacing the Magic Kingdom welcome show with something totally different.
The current welcome show actually takes place outside of the Magic Kingdom. Guests line up in front of the Mainstreet USA train station. Performers sing a welcome song. The mayor of Mainstreet USA makes a little speech and then the Walt Disney Railroad brings in Mickey and his friends. Disney has normally selected a family from the crowd to “help” Mickey. Eventually Mickey counts down from 10 and the gates are opened.
250 local people lost there homes to a fire just before Christmas. Many individuals and organizations stepped up to help make Christmas a little more magical for these families. Disney donated rooms to help fire victims.
Can’t wait for Star Wars Land to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Disneyland? You are not alone. There are thousands of us Force sensitive types waiting to travel to a galaxy far, far away. Disney knows this and is doing its best to keep that excitement alive. One of the ways Disney is doing that is by offering a New Star Wars Guided Tour.
In 2012 Disney purchased Lucas Films for about four billion dollars. That includes Star Wars. Since then Disney has been cashing in releasing two movies (The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and announcing plans to bring Star Wars to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Of course it is going to take years to build those lands (there is still no official opening date) and this new Star Wars Guided tour is one way Disney is keeping the excitement alive (and helping recoup some of that four billion dollars.)

The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort is the most visited theme park in the world but there is one thing some guests have been missing. They would like to have a drink. Until 2012 that was completely impossible. Since 2012 it was not easy to get alcohol in the Magic Kingdom but starting next week it will get a little easier according the the Orlando Sentinel.
The Magic Kingdom will still be drier than the other theme parks. There will still be some major restrictions for alcohol in the Magic Kingdom. In fact Disney is only adding alcohol to the menu at four locations which means there will be five places total in the Magic Kingdom where you can get something a little stronger than a Dole Whip Float.
