If you missed the news earlier, ABC has closed an agreement with the producers of “American Idol“. They will be reviving television’s most successful and recognized music competition series for the 2017-2018 season, bringing back the fan-favorite and making more dreams come true.


We have now learned that “American Idol” auditions will be held at Walt Disney World. It has also been reported that some audition filming may take place at Disneyland in California. There is no word on where exactly the filming will take place. The American Idol Experience attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios closed before the TV series ended, so we can only wonder if auditions will be held at Hollywood Studios.

It has not been announced if  Ryan Seacrest will be returning as host, and no word on who will be judging the 2017-2018 “American Idol” season.

Do you think the return of American Idol will bring back The American Idol Experience?
