Although I was not able to attend the party, Kris Allen’s appearance at Disney’s Hollywood Studio included the usual pomp and celebration for newly crowned stars – a motorcade with Mickey Mouse himself.

Joined by Mickey Mouse, “American Idol” season eight winner Kris Allen waves to fans May 29, 2009 during a celebratory parade through Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. On May 20, 2009, Allen was crowned the newest “American Idol” on the season finale of the popular television show. Following his win, Allen looked into a television camera and triumphantly shouted “I’m Going to Disney World!” for the iconic Disney ad. Fittingly, Allen’s visit occurred as Disney Parks asks guests, “What Will You Celebrate?” Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort.
