American Idol Winner heading to Walt Disney World, soon

Fans of Lee DeWyze will want to be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios early Monday morning for a chance to see the newly crowned American Idol. There will be a motorcade through the park featuring DeWyze at 10AM. DeWyze will also make an appearance at the American Idol Experience attraction.

Above Lee DeWyze is photographed after taping one of the famous “I’m Going to Disney World!” commercials for Disney Parks at the Nokia Theater, immediately after being crowned the newest “American Idol” May 26, 2010 in the show’s star-studded season finale in Los Angeles. DeWyze’s appearance in the iconic Disney spot celebrates “The American Idol Experience” theme park attraction at Walt Disney World in Florida. Not only does the newly crowned Idol shout “I’m Going to Disney World!” at the spot’s conclusion, his voice also is featured throughout the ad as he performs the classic Disney song, “When You Wish Upon A Star.” The full commercial is below the cut:

American Idol Experience – Backstage Video

This is the first video, not shot by Disney, I’ve seen of the backstage areas of the American Idol Experience. These are the areas that only guests who successfully pass the 30-second a cappella audition and the producer’s requirements ever see. But now thanks to… Read More »American Idol Experience – Backstage Video

Even More American Idol Experience…

Marketing

There’s still more news coming from Disney’s American Idol Experience this week. A commercial for the attraction ran during tonight’s airing of American Idol. The tagline was “You can be part of the next Cinderella Story”, which is the same message they’re using on billboards around town.

I like the theme of the commercial, although I found some of the technical parts of it less than inspiring. I’m expecting dozens of people lining up each morning for expressly to have a chance at their Cinderella story in the attraction.

A Winners List

Tonight marked the fourth night of public performances of the show and the fifth Dream Ticket awarded. I have the names of three of those Dream Ticket holders and have started a list in an attempt to collect all of them going forward. If the winner so chooses, they can then provide me links to their YouTube, MySpace, or other internet pages for a chance at growing a following before they even get to the real auditions for the television show.

I’m counting on you readers to help me build this list as I can’t be there every night (although it may seem that way sometimes). The winners name and their song would be excellent.
