UPDATE: Please note, at this time Bob Jackson is not schedule to perform at The Boathouse. If anything changes, we’ll update this post accordingly.
You know, for…like…forever, as Disney food fans we’ve all had our eyes on a couple of major food stories: breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant and the opening of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto have received all the attention lately (well, that, and the rumored news of a possible Jungle Cruise Restaurant coming to the Magic Kingdom).
So, you may be thinking, “Well, that’s it. I guess all the big Disney food news is over for now.”
Not so fast, my friends!! Because now we’re turning our attention to the next presumed restaurant opening in Disney World: The Boathouse, which is anticipated to open sometime in April in Downtown Disney/soon-to-be-Disney-Springs. While we don’t have an exact opening date just yet, we do have some news about one of our favorite Disney performers that may be joining the entertainment line-up.
You see, in addition to food, The Boathouse is also expected to offer
a unique variety of entertainment, from live music to various boat-themed attractions such as Italian Water Taxis and guided Amphicar Tours.
Word has it that Yeeha Bob — regularly seen at Port Orleans Riverside’s River Roost Lounge — may be entertaining guests at The Boathouse as well! According to the terrific Port Orleans fan site, PortOrleans.org, some of Bob’s nights off from the River Roost will be spent bringing his incredible talent to the folks over at The Boathouse! You can also visit Yeeha Bob’s site, where he mentions being tentatively scheduled at The Boathouse.
Don’t expect, however, the traditional singalong Yeeha Bob show we’ve come to know and love over the years at the River Roost. Rather, Bob Jackson will be bringing some of his terrific instrumental jazz skills to the folks on the Water Taxis, along with accompaniment from a saxophonist.
Suffice it to say, if we weren’t excited for The Boathouse before, we sure are now! How about you ?
What do you think of the potential for entertainment at the upcoming Boathouse? Please let us know with a comment!
