    We love going to see his show. I tell everyone who goes to WDW to go see his show.

    Can you take children to his show? Was not sure since I think it is in the lounge. We once took DS into a pub-like place in Chicago for lunch and they made us leave because it was a bar. Very embarrassing, so we have never tried again.

    We saw him summer 2006 and really enjoyed him!!! He has so much energy and is very funny. We planned on staying about 30 minutes, but ended up being there for 2 1/2 hours because we were having so much fun. Well worth the trip from another resort to enjoy this entertainer!!!

    The early part of Bob's show is very appropriate for children...in fact he brings them up to the stage for various songs.

    We LOVE Bob.....saw him 11/24 with a big "We are .... Bob-aholics" sign....photo made it onto his website for the week following.

    It's now a must-do for each visit.


    You can email Bob in advance and let him know you are coming to visit.

    Go...prepare to laugh!

    It is Free.. I think he is only there Thur-Sat. But you can ask at the hotel to double check. It is kid friendly, in fact he encourages the kids to participate as well as the adults.

    Not sure about dinner.. But it is from 8:30-midnight. He takes a 5 minute break about every hour.

    If he is there.. I really do hope you see him. It is fun and and a great way to meet some other people. The lounge was packed and everyone was in to it. From little kids on up....

    Let us know if you catch him!!! Have Fun!!!!

    There is no cover charge for the lounge - although I suspect they would like you to order a drink on occassion of you are sitting at a table...but never any pressure there.

    the show begins at 8:30 and runs until midnight.

    We always make ADR at Boatrights for about 7 pm....go over early....enjoy a leisurly dinner and make sure we are there at 8:30 in order to get a table.

    Oh yes, we ALWAYS leave a tip for Bob. He stays and signs autographed photos for the children during his breaks. He is great with the children.

    Tell Bob the "Bob-aholics" sent you! (and try real hard to NOT be 10 lords a leaping during the 12 days of Christmas!!!)

    Have fun!

    We just got back and saw Bob - LOVED his show!!! We arrived at the lounge around 8:15 and got a table. No pressure to order a drink, but we did end up ordering soda's. The show was wonderful! Very kid friendly, Bob's fun, extremely engaging and takes the time after his show to take pix. I'd go again and recommend this show most definitely! Really no cost, and great family entertainment!

    OMG, Lords' a Leaping is exhausting.....I prefer sitting at the bar; we just have to be Five Golden Rings.....

    The restaurant is next door, so you could eat first.

    I too was at New Orleans Riverside from 28 Nov until 9 Dec 2012 and caught YeeHaw Bob. I loved his show. What an amazing performer and to think he is up there on his own entertaining a room packed full of people. And he manages to everyone involved. He is a Disney hidden gem.
    What a great way to spend an evening. Loved his rendition of 12 days of Christmas.

    He actually starts his Christmas show the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which is the day I arrive.

    It is one of my must-dos every trip; I don't miss one night with him.
