ABC is headed to Florida for audition week of American Idol. TMZ reports that the now-officially announced reality show return will shoot its audition material at Walt Disney World in Orlando.

The site reports that ABC is shooting there to promote Disney World for brand synergy with ABC and that it is more cost-effective than taking the show to different cities. Part of the reason for its cancellation at FOX was that the show simply became too expensive to produce, and this cuts down on that. There has also been talk about having some of the auditions at Disneyland in Anaheim, California as well.
