A little bird told me that the American Idol Experience was open to cast members for preview shows today. Comments so far are good to great. Additionally, there is a chance (a small chance) that AIE will be open for a soft-opening this weekend. I’m also hearing it may not open to the public until Jan 26th.
Not sure how that will work, since a certain number of performing guests are required to complete the cast of the 3 earlier shows that will lead up to the finale show. I’m guessing there will be ample signs before and just inside the entrance to the park to solicit performers for the AM auditions before Disney’s agents.
Brady MacDonald of the LA Times Funland Blog has many more details about how the show will work.
