American Idol Scotty McCreery sings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

American Idol Scotty McCreery visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Monday May 30th, 2011 and sang his hit single “I love you this big” for adoring fans. Later, McCreery dropped in for a very special visit with the contestants of The American Idol Experience, where he provided some advice on how to give a winning audition and later helped announce the name of the winning contestant.

Since the American Idol Experience opened in 2008, it’s been a tradition that the recently crowned American Idol champion stops in to film a few commercials, add their likeness to the attraction, and pose for photos. Unfortunately it’s not a very good event for the average guest. If you’re not one of a select 100 or so fans, you don’t get the good view of the stage. As you can see from the first video, only about 100 fans were allowed near the stage. The rest had to watch from a very bad spot behind the press stand.
