Commercial: ‘American Idol’ Winner Lee DeWyze is Going to Disney World
Following in the footsteps of former American Idol winners Kris Allen and David Cook, newly crowned Idol Lee DeWyze muttered the famous phrase just moments after the announcement: ‘I’m going to Disney World!’
The commercial is a tradition that dates back to 1987 and has featured mostly athletes from professional sports (as well as the Olympics) but began featuring American Idol winners in 2008 in honor of the opening of the ‘American Idol Experience’ at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

UPDATE: Lee will partake in a special parade up along Hollywood Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at 10 am on Monday, May 31
