I’m not even going to ask you how you feel about Yehaa Bob Jackson’s 23-year run being ended by Disney. I already know. We feel the same way. It’s awful. River Roost will never be the same.
Let’s not dwell on the “why did they” or “how could they” of corporate America, however. Businesses will always be businesses, and very few (if any) will ever rule with their hearts.
My friends, I’ll just say it … I spent over 35 years in corporate America. To expect Disney and its executives to be any different from any other emotionless organization is to fool ourselves. No matter their wealth, they won’t make decisions based on compassion. They’ll think with their wallets.
In the meantime, how can we show Bob our love and support? Well, for starters, if you don’t already, please follow Yehaa Bob on Facebook or on Twitter.
Want to do more? Then, visit Bob Jackson Music. There, you can buy Disney sing-along and original music CDs. Bob even sells a pretty impressive selection of t-shirts and other gear.
I’ll end with this – Mrs. All in WDW and I only got the opportunity to see Bob’s act once. It was a great night that we spent with good friends – Dennis Conroy (former co-host of the WDW Main Street Podcast) and his wife. One of our favorite Disney memories ever. Thank you for that, Yehaa Bob!
