“American Idol” auditions bring massive crowd of aspiring singers to Walt Disney World

in Disney, Entertainment, Walt Disney World

Do you think you have what it takes to be the next “American Idol?” “American Idol” producers looking to give out golden tickets welcomed a long line of hopeful singers this morning.

Contestants started lining up at 4:00AM, hoping for a chance to make it to Hollywood. As of this afternoon, the line started by the House of Blues and went all the way to the back of the Disney Springs surface parking lot.


Near the House of Blues are a series of tents where auditions are taking place with “American Idol” producers. Guests who don’t want to spend all day in line can meet with an “American Idol” or Walt Disney World Resort events cast member to receive a wristband allowing them to return during a specific time block. Guests are able to enter the queue behind the House of Blues starting one hour before their audition time block.

Visitors stood in line this morning with sheet music and guitars as they practiced their vocals for their big moment.

For those who are still making their way over to Disney Springs, make sure to bring some water as the entirety of the event is taking place outside.

Cast members were also outside this morning, selling water bottles to help visitors stay hydrated.

Parking will be available on the surface lot on the west side of Disney Springs (near the House of Blues and Cirque du Soleil).

You must be at least 15 years old to audition and are allowed to bring one guest over the age of 5.  If you can’t make it to one of the in-person auditions, you can also show your talent online. For more information, visit the “American Idol” website.

The new season of “American Idol” premieres in 2018 on ABC.
