American Idols kick off attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The American Idol attraction at Walt Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens to the public on February 14.

But the fun begins, on February 12th, when a giant Idol reunion of more than 20 Idols hits Orlando for pre-opening invitation-only celebrity festivities:

More than 20 American Idol luminaries will be attending next week’s premiere of the American Idol Experience attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney officials confirm. Along with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, current winner David Cook, former winners Jordin Sparks, Taylor Hicks and Carrie Underwood, and past contestants David Archuleta, Bo Bice and Justin Guarini will participate in  the invitation-only  festivities Thursday, Feb. 12. (The lineup, Disney reminds us, is subject to change and expand.)

Theme-park guests that day can get a glimpse of the Idol family during a motorcade at 4:30 p.m.

Earlier that day — before the park even opens —  Cook will be doing a live segment for ABC’s Good Morning America. Sorry, fans, it’s a closed set.

I expect to have a couple of spywitnesses at these invitation-only events, so stay tuned!
