David Archuleta provided an update on what he’s been up to on his blog at MySpace (@davidarchuleta) on Monday (February 16), talking about visiting Oahu, going to The American Idol Experience launch at Disney World, and visiting New Orleans. The ‘American Idol’ season seven runner-up tells readers:
After we left Hawaii, we went to Orlando for the premiere of the American Idol Experience at Disney World. It felt like a family reunion with so many past idol contestants. All 7 winners were there, and Melinda, Phil, Lakisha, Sanjaya, Brooke, and a bunch of other people were there too haha. My older sister came down for the event, and my cousins were already in that area because it was my grandma’s birthday that same day. So they got to come too! It was a reunion with the American Idol family, and my real family. the American Idol Experience was so cool too! It was freakishly similar to the real stage, and I think it’s way cool how people can get a chance to see what it’s like to be in our shoes up on stage performing or watching the show live. We got to ride the rides after doing press.
