Candice Glover, season 12 winner of “American Idoli,” visited Walt Disney World yesterday, May 27, 2013, seen here posing with Mickey Mouse at “The American Idol Experience” attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Unlike previous winners, Glover’s appearance was rather understated, with no motorcade and no special singing performance before fans, nor was an “I’m going to Disney World!” commercial created. She did pose for pictures with Mickey Mouse and surprise Walt Disney World guests with an on-stage appearance at The American Idol Experience, as well as taping new audio and video segments for the attraction.

Among recent “Idol” winners, Scotty McCreery attracted the most attention at the park, with Lee DeWyze and Phillip Phillips creating much less of a commotion.

The future of both Disney’s attraction and the TV show remain unknown, as the show’s ratings continue to slip due to ongoing celebrity judge drama and crowds dwindle at each performance in the park. With so little attention given to Candice Glover’s appearance in the park, a first since the attraction debuted, fans are left wondering if its days are numbered.
