American Idol - Season 1 On ABC is coming to television in 2018, but hopefuls will get their first chance to make the cut this Thursday, August 17, as the multi-city bus tour kicks off open auditions at Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The popular singing competition aired for 15 seasons on FOX before ending in 2016. After brief hiatus, ABC recently announced the shows return. A first stop in Orlando for the first new season makes a lot of sense. The Walt Disney Company owns the Disney/ABC Television Group and their Florida theme park location is a worldwide leader. Disney’s Hollywwod Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort was also home to The American Idol Experience from 2009 and 2014. The attraction allowed theme park guests the chance to compete in preliminary shows throughout the day with the winning participant of the finale show each night receiving a “Dream Ticket” which allowed them to bypass the line at a regional audition for the real show.

On Thursday, you can audition with Producers at Disney Springs. No Celebrity Judges will be on hand, but past Idol winners Jordin Sparks, Kris Allen and Ruben Studdard are reported to make appearances during the kickoff celebration.

If you are between 15 and 28 years old and think you got what it takes, registration begins at 6 am and closes at noon or sooner. Capacity is 4,000 participants. Check out the Disney Parks Blog and for more information.

Can’t make it? A pop-up audition kiosk will also be available at Disney Springs from Friday, August 18 - Friday, September 15 during regular operating hours where visitors can create and submit an online audition video.
