During Fleming's spring break vacation to Florida, she competed in the "American Idol Experience" at Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park and walked away with the title of idol.

Not only did Fleming walk away with the gold, she also walked away with a "dream ticket" that allows her to go to the front of the line at a future "American Idol" audition.
