Disney World Moms at American Idol Experience

If you haven’t heard or seen enough of Disney’s American Idol Experience Gala Premiere, a new video featuring two of the talented Moms from Disney’s Moms Panel has just been released.

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.

American Idol Experience, Red Carpet Interviews and Motorcade

It’s American Idol, so the red carpet has turned to blue, but the star studded interviews as just as good as if this was the real Hollywood instead of Disney’s magical version. Ryan Seacrest, Paula Abdul, David Cook, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia, Kimberly Locke, and Bucky Covington, all share a bit about why bringing the American Idol Experience to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is so magical.

Below the cut is an even longer video with more highlights from the AIE premiere blue carpet and the motorcade.

The night started off with a celebrity motorcade…

Last night at the premiere of The American Idol Experience, Disney gave away the first ever ‘Dream Ticket’, which allows one lucky park guest a ‘fast pass’ to the front of the audition line for a future season of American Idol, and feted the attraction and the TV show the way only Disney can with tons of magical moments and great experiences for Idols, guests, and fans alike.

…and ended with all seven previous Idol winners on stage together with their new ‘Idol Awards’ that were presented tonight (and Seacrest too).

I want to tell you all about it, but unfortunately, I only have a few minutes today. So here’s a quick summary and a few of my favorite photos from the night. I promise there will be much more later.
