Based on the Fox TV show, The American Idol Experience gives park visitors the chance to audition to perform in this live, theme park version of the show. The winners of each show face off in a grand finale at the end of the day. Each day's final winner gets a "front of the line" pass to audition for the real, TV version. Arrive early in the day and look for the signs at the attraction if you'd like to audition to perform. Otherwise, just show up before the published showtimes (pick up a daily show schedule at the front gate, or at the register of any merchandise store) to get a seat in the audience and watch your fellow visitors try to entertain you. The show closed Aug. 30, 2014.
