The Jellyrolls dueling piano bar is an incredibly popular location on Walt Disney World Resort’s BoardWalk. Unfortunately, the lively spot has been closed for an extended period of time — it has not reopened since Disney World began its post-pandemic closure reopening process in May 2020.
The live music venue was originally set to reopen in October 2020, but that date was pushed back indefinitely. The last official update from Jellyrolls came on social media 44 weeks ago:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the reopening of Jellyrolls Dueling Piano Bar has been pushed back indefinitely. We are looking forward to serving and entertaining our valued guests as soon as possible! We will keep you posted as dates and developments materialize so check back often.
Now, the popular Jellyrolls performer known as Piano Rob has provided his Instagram followers with the first Jellyrolls update in months — and the news is not great. Rob has confirmed that he won’t be back at Jellyrolls when the venue does reopen to Guests, whenever that may be.
In part, his July 2, 2021 post reads:
I am so sorry to everyone that I will not be at Jellyrolls whenever that magical opening day will be. I hope this changes and things align but unfortunately I have no reason to believe it will.
I will still be at the hotel often and luckily there are many amazing opportunities for me to play piano in and around Walt Disney World!
Jellyrolls Orlando has not officially commented on whether or not any of their pre-pandemic performers will be coming back upon reopening. A reopening date for the popular 21+ establishment been not been announced on the official Walt Disney World Resort website or the Jellyrolls social media accounts.
