New ‘American Idol’ Scotty McCreery Set to be Honored Monday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We have exciting news to announce! We can confirm that the new “American Idol,” Scotty McCreery, is scheduled to be honored at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in a gala motorcade on Monday, May 30 at 10 a.m.

While details are still coming in, we’ve learned that the 17-year-old country crooner from Garner, N.C., will join Mickey Mouse in a sports car near the park’s entrance and take a celebratory ride down Hollywood Blvd. toward the Sorcerer Mickey Hat icon. The car will turn left and head toward “The American Idol Experience” attraction, where Scotty and Mickey will stop near a specially constructed stage. There, Scotty will pose for some souvenir pictures with Mickey and Minnie, and have the chance to talk about the dream-come-true moment when he was crowned the newest “American Idol.”

Prime viewing and photo opportunities will be along Hollywood Blvd., as Scotty and Mickey will share the spotlight in the car while they parade down the famous theme park street.

Of course, these plans are subject to change because of travel schedules or inclement weather, but stay in touch with @WaltDisneyWorld on Twitter and we will post any late-breaking updates or schedule changes involving the planned festivities. And, be sure to check the Disney Parks Blog later in the day for a recap of Scotty’s big day.

Are there events on Sunday as well? The Orlando Fox station is reporting that the last few finalist and the winner would be there Sunday. I just want to confirm so we can make plans. Are they there both days or only Monday? Thanks

Amy,
The “American Idol” parade will indeed be on Monday. No events are planned for Sunday (although the Jedi and Sith will be out in full Force for all of the Star Wars Weekends fun).
We hope you can join us Monday!

Since Tuesday is my birthday and Scotty won’t be there can I take a picture with him tomorrow? Will he also be there all day or just in the morning?
