Character Meet and Greets: Aladdin Characters
Whether you have a young boy who loves this thieving street rat, or a hubby whose favourite Disney movie is still Aladdin there are few places on Walt Disney property where you can meet the characters from Aladdin.
This male lead can be found in Adventureland, Magic Kingdom daily between 9:30am and 5:05pm. Sometimes he has Princess Jasmine with him and other times he’s hanging out solo. The character meet and greet spot is by The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. They are found in a shaded area that looks a lot like a Bazaar. If you are coming from Main Street USA, take the bridge into Adventureland. Pass the Swiss Family Treehouse on your left. Keeping to your right you’ll pass a variety of shops and then come upon the character meet and greet spot. If you are coming from Liberty Square there is a thoroughfare immediately before Country Bear Jamboree. You may have to wait in line or you may have to wait for them to return. Just wait at the rope until they return.
Princess Jasmine can be found at the character meet and greet location along with Aladdin throughout the day. Beginning at 9:30am and finishing at 5:05pm. You’ll find the details in the paragraph above.
Princess Jasmine makes an appearance at Cinderella’s Royal Table, a table-service restaurant found inside Cinderella’s castle. This pay ahead meal features other princesses as well, including Cinderella and Snow White. Be sure to reserve this ahead of time as this is a very popular dining experience.
This is the best place to meet Princess Jasmine. It is hidden away so it is rarely busy. She appears from 11:45am until 6:20pm, taking breaks throughout the day. So you can find her at the following times: 11:45am-12:30pm, 12:45pm-1:30pm, 1:45pm-2:30pm, 2:45pm-3:25pm, 4:35pm-5:20pm and 5:30pm-6:20pm. These times can be found on the My Disney Experience App. To find this meet and greet location make your way to Morocco. Found between Japan and France. There’s a boat launch at Morocco so you can take the boat from the Showcase Plaza, just make sure you take the one located closest to Canada. When you get to Morocco make your way under the archway and into the shop area. If you follow the walkway outside of the shops you’ll find the character meeting before you reach Restaurant Marrakesh.
Princess Jasmine can often be found here. This character dining experience has a rotating schedule of princesses, so you may see Princess Jasmine, Belle, Snow White, Cinderella, Princess Aurora or Ariel. This restaurant is found in Norway and is a great use of your dining plan, only using one meal credit. You can dine here for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.
Abu, Genie and Jafar
During the Halloween season you can find these rare Aladdin characters at the Magic Kingdom during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. They come out for pictures and autographs between 9:30pm and 11pm at the same character spot you would find Aladdin in Adventureland. Since these characters are not often seen you can expect to wait in a long line to have a moment with them.
I have amazing memories of meeting Aladdin and Jafar. My husband and I got a picture with Aladdin during our Goofy’s race weekend. We were in the last mile of the marathon, having run a half the day before, running around World Showcase of Epcot. There was Aladdin! We took the opportunity to stop and take a picture and rest our weary legs. I met Jafar when I was very young. The movie had just come out and my family was on a trip to Walt Disney World. We got to have lunch with the Aladdin characters. Jafar came to our table and loomed over us as he signed our autograph books and then slammed the book shut with his long fingers. It was terrifying. Taking the opportunity to meet these characters will create memories you will enjoy for years to come. Happy Planning.
