I just received the latest monthly newsletter from Port Orleans' famed Bob Jackson.

He writes about some exciting news of his upcoming performances at Disney Springs!

"I'm tentatively scheduled to start working at a new restaurant called The Boathouse on my nights off from the Port. It's at Disney Springs, formally called Downtown Disney. I'll be playing on the water taxi!. I will be playing instrumental jazz standards with a sax player. The restaurant hasn't officially opened yet, so the dates below are in parentheses."

Port Orleans (8:30- midnight )

Boathouse Restaurant is tentatively scheduled to open Monday, April 13. It's located in Disney Springs.(4-10 PM )

Ocoee Christian Church (Every Sunday, 10:45-Noon) If you are in town and want to come out to the church, write for directions! Here's the church website-

I believe he's been practicing for this going between MK and the resorts on those boats. We had him and were very surprised as we took a boat to Fort Wilderness a few weeks ago. He sang a medley of Disney songs.

His show at the River Roost isn't my cup of tea. It's just too loud for me. That being said, Bob is one of the most talented folks I've seen performing at WDW. He has a mind like a steel trap as well. I've talked with him a few times when we did venture into the River Roost to try to catch part of a Gator game & get a drink after a day at the parks. After the first time I met him, he remembered me & my husband, where we were from, etc. I'll be interested to see what his show at the Boathouse is like.

Then I highly advise finding him outside of Port Orleans. The shows are a tad different.
