We make it a point to go at least once every trip!
Yes, the cover and big red cup both went up a couple of bucks at the beginning of the year. We were there this past May and saw the new pricing.

It is Disney, so you NEVER know what the crowds are going to be like from one night to the next. One of the best times we have ever had at Jellyrolls was on a Monday night. The bar was packed and the crowd was absolutely perfect!

I plan on doing this next trip since it was a request for a birthday celebration!

It does indeed get loud, but lots of fun. I do wish they had finger food options besides all the booze.

If you really want to embarrass the guest of honor request sexy little tea cup for your friends birthday. That will do the trick!

You can always stop at ESPN Club or Big River and grab something to go. Jellyrolls will allow outside food in the bar if you want more then popcorn.

I just realized we were on the gues list and didn't pay cover in June when we were there so that must be why I didn't notice the change in cover price! On well, still very worth it in my opinion!

If you make it to last call there will a Disney bus in front of the resort that will take you back to your resort.

Have fun!

I disagree with this post. I LOVE Yehaa Bob at POR and suggest everyone check him out too. But these are two very different experiences. Yes, they both have guys playing the piano and singing and getting the crowd involved. But that is where the similarities end. Bob Jackson at POR is family friendly singalong entertainment that is more on the silly side. He is a very talented pianist but his show is more geared to silliness.

Jellyrolls has two piano players at a time who play against, and with, each other. While they play to their audience and get the audience involved, it is more of an adult-type concert show. And with that they are able to showcase their talent a bit more with good harmonies, good piano work, etc. If you're a music person, this one will likely appeal to you more. For instance, I once requested "the Ballad of Billy the Kid" (Billy Joel) which is an intricate song with an orchestra playing against a single piano (like a musical duel) and these guys played the CRAP out of it!

BUT! I strongly encourage people going to see BOTH Bob and Jellyrolls. Both are equally good - just different.

Sorry if I am being a fool ... $12 cover ... is that an entrance fee? I've never heard of covers other than when I worked in a restaurant, a cover was a place at a table. Is it the same?

What's "the big red cup" about? Is that a souvenir?

It's our 1st wedding anniversary the day after we arrive, I was too slow to book a meal at Cinderella's Castle but have read only good things about Jellyrolls, so we're hoping to grab an early dinner from a Boardwalk restaurant and head over there for the entertainment.

Not a fool at all. Better to be safe and ask then be sorry.

It costs $12 to get into the bar. The big red cup special is a large 32oz red solo cup with the special drink of the night (usually something fruity (sex on the beach, lynchberg lemonade, etc). It is a little cheaper for such a large amount of alcohol, but it is all bottom shelf stuff. If you care about taste then you will want to avoid the big red cup. But that's just my opinion, it is nice to have a less expensive option, just not for me. But the Big Red Cup is VERY popular!

We love Jellyrolls! I have been 3 times (twice with hubby and once with my BFF) and can't wait to take my DSIS and her hubby with DH and I in January. The $12 cover is more than worth it, the guys are awesome and it's very entertaining and fun. As for drinks, yes they're expensive to us, but we aren't there to drink a lot, so generally just stretch a beer as long as we can. We like to get there by 8 when the guys start, usually quiet and we get some good requests in by just shouting them out. By nine it starts to fill in, and we have fun making requests and 'chair dancing'. We have always been able to get on the DTD after midnight and get a ride directly to our onsite resort
