Rumours have been circulating for the past few days that the American Idol Experiences days are up. Cast Members were told that the show was expected to run a limited number of daily show from mid July and then would close for good in January 2015. There was still no official word from Disney, Freemantle or 19 Entertainment until today, they released a statement confirming the closure.

“After more than five successful years, The American Idol Experience will be coming to a close at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in January 2015. Our partnership with FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment has been a great addition to the park and we are very appreciative of the amazing cast and guests who have devoted their time and talent to make this experience special and memorable. We are incredibly proud of the more than 2,000 Dream Tickets that have given guests a chance to live their very own Cinderella story and audition for ‘American Idol’. This past season alone, three of the Top 13 contestants were originally discovered through The American Idol Experience and we expect the attraction to continue providing top contestants for ‘American Idol’ XIV in the coming year.”
