Fancy yourself as the next Justin Bieber? neither. How about the next Rihanna? The American Idol Experience lets you watch other park guests auditioning, just like the real show. Guests can register for an audition with a producer at the park. If the producer feels that the person has a shot, they will be taken back stage to be given the works - they are prepped with hair, make-up and a vocal coach before performing to the judges, and a live audience, right in the park!

The people with the highest number of votes will compete in the grand finale show at the end of the day. The winner will get the chance to audition for the real American Idle show at one of the regional audition shows. The competition is open to park guests aged 14 and up, however since American Idol is limited to ages 16-28, the winner can transfer their pass to a family member or friend, or keep hold of it for when they are old enough if under 16.
