Ask a Disney Question: Who Can Watch American Idol?
From Lori, who writes: Can you go and watch American Idol or do you have to be a contestant?
Lori: Any guest of Hollywood Studios can sit in the audience and watch the show. There are seven 25-minute preliminary shows a day, with three contestants per show. The winners from each of these shows will compete in the 45-minute grand finale at the end of the day. So you can watch a show, vote and help choose the winner, and then come back at the end of the day and see the finale. Even if you don’t get a chance to go inside, you can watch the show outside on a huge screen located outside the American Idol experience.
Apparently, despite the popularity of the attraction, seats are pretty easy to come by. Everyone I’ve talked to who visted the AI experience loved it and said it ended up being one of the fun surprises of their trip.
Thanks for your question.
