“American Idol” Auditions To Be Held At Walt Disney World, Disneyland

TMZ is reporting that with “American Idol” now coming back and airing on ABC, that auditions will be held at Walt Disney World and possibly even Disneyland Resort.

From TMZ:

Yep, TMZ has learned the show will shoot audition weeks at Walt Disney World in Orlando. We’re told there are 2 reasons:

— It promotes a huge brand within the Disney company — amusement parks.

— It’s way more cost-effective than travelling the show to various cities.

A source familiar with the deal tells us there’s also talk of doing some of the auditions at Disneyland on the West Coast.

It would also give the show a cross-section of America and beyond, without having to hit the road.

Money is definitely an issue. The show got too expensive to produce, which is why it went off the air a year ago, and this will save a considerable sum.

Of course, Walt Disney World used to host auditions of sort for the show when it was on FOX through the American Idol Experience attraction, which is now long gone.

This show died and needs to be buried, not revived in WDW.

Yes I think it is wonderful. Hopefully they will focus more on real singers this time around.

If they stick to real singers, like the voice tries to do, they will be fine. Keep the cheese to an absolute minimum.

I think this is a terrible idea, it died cause it got stale and only a few winners were actually any good.

I do not know whether it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues
with your site. It appears like some of the written text on your posts are running
off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let
me know if this is happening to them too? This might be
a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
Appreciate it
