Are you the next American Idol? Well, if not, are you the next Disney Hollywood Studios Idol? Find out at this talent competition comprised completely of Walt Disney World Guests age 14 and older. Auditions are held early in the day, leading to a series of elimination rounds that culminates in the Finale Show. Audience members vote on that day’s top singers. The winner will receive a “Dream Ticket,” which gives them a front of the line pass to the actual American Idol television auditions.

  • Be sure to check out the final competition at the end of the day. This performance pits all the winners from the day’s previous performances, and the winner will receive the coveted Dream Ticket.
