YeeHaa Bob cover charge and length of set

looked on Bob's site for schedule. he starts at 8:31 and , according to site, ends at 8:31...

in the event that he does not perform for twelve hours (or maybe 24) how long IS a set? and how much is cover charge?

THANX!!

The "evening" starts at 8:30PM and ends about Midnight. (Wed. thru Sat.)
The musician's union specifies 15 minutes break for every hour of performance.

Don't know of any cover charge.

He starts around 8 pm and finishes around 11:30 pm, but hangs around to take pics. There is no cover charge, but he does accept tips. He does acknowledge any occasion you are celebrating and there is audience participation. Bob is the best. I have his christmas show memorized.

Do it!

soooooo, each set runs about 1 hour long but do they repeat themselves or is this one long continuous show (which would make it quite a long show)

do most people hang around for the whole evening or does the audience flush itself out?

THANX!!

3 separate sets of different material. Some people will stay the entire night (like us!) Others will come and go.
If you want a seat, get there early. The place will fill up quickly at a busy time of year.

It is a really fun night.

I arrive the Saturday after Thanksgiving every year and catch his Christmas show which starts a few days before. So by then, he is totally warmed up.

If you want to get an idea of his never ending energy, there are videos on youtube; but I would just suggest holding out for the surprise. He is the real deal.

You have the most fun when you participate when prompted and thoroughly support those he calls up to the stage to add to his show. It is quite a work-out.

We will be leaving Sunday for 2 weeks in WDW and we are staying at POR. We absolutely love watching Yeehaw Bob. He puts on a great show. My DD has already asked to see him every night he's performing, lol!! You will have a great time. I agree with the other suggestions, arrive early for a seat. I have noticed that usually after the first 2 sets it clears out because of the late hour, but it is very busy earlier.

Bob demonstrates an amazing memory. If you interact with him, chances are he will remember you during your next visit.

Bob is awesome! No cover charge! We could stay the whole night and not get bored. He sang happy birthday to my daughter and had her come sit at the piano with him. He remembers everyone that he interacts with and puts in an amazing show! Check him out on YouTube!

Bob is a MUST DO for me and my husband. The first night we arrive at WDW, we spend it at Bob's show. It is now our routine. Bob puts on a great show. He is a very talented piano player. Give him a listen....you won't be sorry.

we will have to take a taxi (for time considerations) from Kidani to Bob....

anybody know how much time to allow for taxi or should I put my trust in the Desk Clerk's advice?

i'm thinking we won't get there arrival night (wed) and, after trekking around the parks all day, wonder how much enthusiasm will remain for ol' Bob..........................

We usually go see him after leaving one of the parks, just hop on the bus to POR. Usually we eat supper at the park and go from there. Once we ate at POR before the show, and that worked out well too. No taxi. Now, getting back to your resort, you would likly have to take a bus or boat to DTD and transfer to your resort, or get a taxi back to your resort. The boat ride is quite nice at nighttime, unless it's chilly out.

Looking forward to seeing Bob for our first time at the End of September. We will be celebrating our 10th anniversary and are hoping to finish off the night with his performance. Sounds like he puts on a great show!
