The upcoming American Idol Disney night will debut on ABC on May 2, so it is not a surprise that filming has already begun at Walt Disney World as production wants to ensure everything is ready to go. We already knew that judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan would join the contestants and Ryan Seacrest would host.

Now, we also know that actor and Disney fan, John Stamos (Full House, Fuller House, Big Shot), will be part of American Idol as a celebrity mentor, so he was also spotted in Disney World this week for filming for Disney episode.

This is not the first time competition shows on ABC have done a Disney-themed night. In fact, Dancing with the Stars is known for its extravagant Disney nights, where professional dancers and competitors (such as actors, athletes, singers, and more) dance a choreographed routine to beloved Disney songs.

ABC also brought Disney magic to fans at home during the last year as the ongoing pandemic affected so many. In case you missed it, Ryan Seacrest hosted a handful of Disney Family Singalong specials!
