ABC’s ’American Idol’ returns to Disney’s Aulani Resort

Great news for music fans! We’re super excited to announce that ABC’s “American Idol” is returning to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa for its fifth season on ABC and 20th season overall. After earning their chance to become America’s next superstar in Hollywood, American Idol contestants will journey to Oahu to hone their craft under the guidance of celebrity mentors as they prepare to showcase their vocal skills during a concert on Aulani Resort’s beach. 

But, it will not be all work. Between coaching sessions and performing, the contestants will have time to explore all the incredible experiences that Aulani Resort has to offer. They will dine on culinary delights including Mickey Shave Ice, traditional island cuisine and sushi. And, the lush surroundings on 21 oceanfront acres are sure to provide inspiration for the up-and-coming artists. Of course, the sprawling Waikolohe Valley pool area is always a favorite among activities for American Idol contestants. Here they can admire the view from a quiet infinity-edge pool, float along a lazy river, splash down water slides and more.
