An Interview with YeeHa Bob Jackson!

Published November 15, 2013 by Disneyways.com

BOB

If you have ever wandered passed the River Roost Lounge in Disney Port Orleans Riverside Resort in the evening – you may have have heard the sounds of folks laughing, cheering, and singing along with the fantastic performer and Disney treasure that we all know as YeeHa Bob! Hopefully you’ve seen his show already, but if not, you will definitely want to take the time to check it out during your next visit to Walt Disney World. Bob is not to be missed!

He performs most nights of the week at the River Roost for 2 action packed shows. His talent, enthusiasm and energy are unmatched by almost anyone I have ever known. There is SO much to Bob, beyond the music, and he is truly an amazing man. We were so honored to have him as a guest on the Disney Parks Podcast.

Highlights of this interview with Bob:

  • Learning about all the places Bob has lived and visited – including the country of Norway!
  • Hear about Bob’s kids and where they are now
  • Find out what Bob does for fun and how he takes a break from work
  • Learn Bob’s secret to keeping up his energy the way he does…and so much more!

On episode #76 of the Disney Parks Podcast Show – Tammy Turner joins us to discuss Disney Characters we wish they’d bring back to the parks. Tammy Turner is your host on the Tiara Talk Show YouTube Channel! She brings you rare and fun interviews with creators of the Disney magic — such as actors, singers, dancers, imagineers and cast members who have worked for the Disney Company over the years! Tammy has such a fun personality and really brought a lot to this episode – we were very fortunate and thankful to have her on as a guest.

At Tammy’s request we chose our top 3 favorite characters to bring back to the parks. We kept our answers a surprise from each other until this recording. 

Highlights of the show include:

  • Tammy reveals that a BIG rumor we mentioned on Disneyways recently is definitely true!! Which rumor is it and how is she so sure?
  • Bonus content – who are Kenny the Pirate’s top 5 characters to bring back? Kenny the Pirate is a Disney character expert – so he knows them all!
  • Info on how you can contact us and let us know about the characters YOU miss seeing at the parks!

Prize Giveaway and an Interview with Jeff Bahm: Owner of Doombuggies.com

Published October 30, 2013 by Disneyways.com

Check out show #74 with the impressive Jeff Baham! Jeff has had a long history with Disney which is very interesting. Besides all of that though, I think Jeff is SO cool. You know how you get to talk to someone and from that day on – you just think wow…that person is SO cool? Yeah…that is Jeff.

You will hear on the show that he is amazingly humble and knowledgeable. I don’t listen to a lot of other Disney podcasts but Jeff’s podcast – Moustalgia is on my list. I love learning about Disneyland since I have never been there. The team has great chemistry on the show, and each podcast ropes me in from beginning to end! It’s no surprise that Mousetalgia was nominated for the Podcast Awards this year. You can vote for them here.

Jeff is the author of THE Unofficial History of Disney’s Haunted Mansion. He has years of involvement with his award-winning Disney fan sites, such as Doombuggies.com – AND he hosts the Moustalgia Podcast. You can also check out Doombuggies.com for a link to listen to his brand new podcast all about the Haunted Mansion. He has served a term on the Disneyland Creative Advisory Council, and has worked closely with Disneyland and Walt Disney World to help develop and promote special events, including a re-creation of Disneyland’s Tahitian Terrace in 2012. This guy has even rubbed elbows with some of Disney’s greatest legends– including Richard Sherman!

For a limited time, you can enter here to win a free autographed copy of Jeff’s book!

Highlights of this awesome interview with Jeff include:

  • My terrible impression of the ghost host (OK that’s NOT a highlight…)
  • How Jeff got to go to Richard Sherman’s birthday party
  • Here is a link to buy your copy of “The Boys” – a fantastic movie produced by the children of the Sherman brothers about their Dads – and what really happened in their career
  • The story of how a family got to sleep in the Haunted Mansion one night
  • How Jeff and his team celebrated the 10th anniversary of Doom Buggies – wow what a party!!
  • How Jeff got to serve a term on the Disneyland Creative Advisory Council
  • Learn about all the cool stuff they do at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion for Halloween
  • If both were falling off a cliff – would Jeff save Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion or Disney World’s Haunted Mansion? Find out here!

We put our best efforts forward to entertain, provide information and help you plan and get the most out of your Disney vacation…just like we would for our own family. We hope you are enjoying the podcasts as much as we are enjoying recording them for you!

Last year the Disney Parks Podcast was very honored by your help and thoughtfulness, and received your nomination for the travel category of the podcast awards. Since then, I have been very fortunate to be invited as a co-host on the show, as well as to work behind the scenes. (My first episode was #42 on May 1, 2013.)

We have worked extra hard, and acquired some wonderful Disney celebrity interviews in the last few months. We have also brought you news sprinkled with ways to enhance your enjoyment of the Disney Parks. The work shows – and we believe this show has the potential to become one of your favorite Disney podcasts – if it’s not already!

If you agree, and would like to see the podcast get recognized for it’s achievements, we hope you will honor us by nominating the show once again in 2013 for the People’s Choice Podcast Awards.
