The American Idol Experience is closing at Hollywood Studios


Yes, it’s true folks! The American Idol Experience will be closing. I know some of you will be ecstatic and some of you will be sad. But after more than 5 years, this attraction have limited shows beginning mid-July and full closure in January 2015.  What will replace this attraction? We’ll send Anonymouse out to see what the latest Disney Gossip is about this location.

Walt Disney World Resort, FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment have released this joint statement:

“After more than five successful years, The American Idol Experience will be coming to a close at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in January 2015. Our partnership with FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment has been a great addition to the park and we are very appreciative of the amazing cast and guests who have devoted their time and talent to make this experience special and memorable. We are incredibly proud of the more than 2,000 Dream Tickets that have given guests a chance to live their very own Cinderella story and audition for ‘American Idol’. This past season alone, three of the Top 13 contestants were originally discovered through The American Idol Experience and we expect the attraction to continue providing top contestants for ‘American Idol’ XIV in the coming year.”
