From the ‘We should have seen this one coming’ file, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has inked a deal with FremantleMedia Licensing and 19 Entertainment to create an American Idol attraction at the world-famous destination.

The attraction will be open late this year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, giving guests a taste of the glamor and high-stakes world of the popular TV talent show.

Visitors will get to experience the audition process, performing live in video kiosks in full view of some tough judges. Singers who pass this screening test will move to the next stage.

Guest performers with the highest votes will compete in an end-of-day Grand Finale show at Walt Disney World, and will receive a guaranteed reservation for a future regional stadium audition.
