Catch the American Idol Bus Tour

Save the date—an open casting call for the revival of this popular TV show is coming to Disney Springs on August 17, 2017.

That’s right… American Idol is getting a fresh start on ABC in 2018, and Disney Springs is hosting the very first stop of its open audition bus tour!

Craving a shot at the spotlight? Hopefuls between the ages of 15 and 28 can visit the West Side near the Cirque du Soleil® La Nouba™ theater to audition in front of the show’s producers.

Online and Walk-Up Registration
Due to the popularity of this open audition tour, we recommend registering in advance on americanidol.com. You’ll also receive full audition details and learn more about eligibility requirements.

Here are a few important details to keep in mind if you are planning to register and audition in person on August 17, 2017:

  • Overnight camping will not be permitted, so please make sure to arrive no earlier than 4:00 AM.
  • Walk-up registration will take place on a first come, first-served basis from 6:00 AM to noon (or until participant capacity has been met).
  • Auditions with American Idol producers will kick off at 8:00 AM and end at approximately 6:00 PM.
  • Bring water, sunscreen and a hat for your comfort since auditions will be held outdoors.

Parking
Parking will be available beginning at 4:00 AM at the surface parking lot near the West Side.

An Audition Alternative
When the bus rolls away at the end of the day, you’ll still have the chance to become a part of Idol history! From August 18 through September 15, 2017, you can create and submit an audition video at the American Idol pop-up kiosk, located inside the Market Stalls building within Town Center.

American Idol will debut on its new home at ABC in 2018.
