'American Idol' Champion Lee DeWyze at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Today, newly crowned “American Idol” Lee DeWyze visited the Walt Disney World Resort for a special parade through Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We caught up with Lee during his celebratory ride down Hollywood Boulevard with Mickey Mouse. He also posed with Minnie Mouse, signed autographs for fans and even made a surprise appearance on-stage at “The American Idol Experience,” the theme park’s attraction based on the hit TV show.

    Went on Midway Mania with the new game (Fun!) before seeing Lee! Was very cool that he made the Guest appearance in the 11am American Idol Experience 🙂 Really enjoyed the morning!

    Thanks for making us aware of this on the Blog, it’s not often I’m actually in the Orlando area when there is any special event going on, so enjoyed this 🙂 I usually end up missing them by days or sometimes a few hours lol!

  • I would have loved to have been there. I love Lee.
    Hey Thomas who would be the one in charge of rides and attractions? I would like to know when DHS is going to get rid of Sounds Dangerous. It is a very disappointing attraction. I love all of the improvements at DHS except for this attraction.
