Must Do’s for Aladdin Fans
Aladdin now has fans from many generations. Those that grew to love these characters from the original film in the 90’s, families being mystified by the live stage performance found on Broadway and now, with the most recent live film, a whole new group is coming to know of the tales of Agrabah. There are currently two different Disney parks that host Aladdin characters and themed attractions. Find out where they are here so you don’t miss them on your Disney vacation.
Fantasyland is found just behind Cinderella’s Castle and is the home to all things magic at the Magic Kingdom. You’ll see ugly stepsisters traipsing around, swords being pulled out of stones and Belle reenacting her romantic tale.
Dine at this Signature restaurant found inside Cinderella’s Castle. Here you have the chance to meet and interact with Princess Jasmine. Princess Jasmine, as well as a number of other princesses, come to each guests table to speak with them as they dine in this enchanted castle. During the meal Princess Jasmine will head to your table, snap a picture and sign your autograph book. This restaurant is one of the most popular at Walt Disney World, so make sure to get your reservations ahead of time.
In this 3D film, Donald travels through some of the most famous scenes from your favourite Disney films. Aladdin is one of these films. Donald ends up flying on a magic carpet in search of Mickey’s Sorcerer’s hat and puts himself in the middle of Aladdin and Jasmine singing A Whole New World. With the 3D glasses, you’ll feel like you’re riding along with them.
On this western side of the park you’ll find singing birds, rough looking pirates and the famous Dole Whip.
Aladdin’s Magic Carpet
Guests of all heights can board their very own magic carpet. Similar to Dumbo’s Flying Elephant found in Fantasyland, guests control the carpet as it climbs and descends. In comparison to Dumbo, this ride has two rows which means the whole family can ride together. This ride is out in the open, leaving very little shade so make sure your kids are well sunscreened. This attraction does have FastPass+. This line has nothing to entertain guests. So if you want to make sure you get to ride it then I’d recommend grabbing one of these. Be careful, this ride may get you wet!
Aladdin Meet and Greet
In the shadow of Aladdin’s Magic Carpet, Aladdin and sometimes Jasmine meet and greet guests. Agrabah Bazaar is directly beside this meet and greet location. Aladdin appears from park open until 5pm. He does take periodic breaks so if he’s not there when you get there, he’s sure to come back soon. Aladdin will be wearing his street rat attire and he’ll be sure to sign your autograph book or whatever you’re getting characters to sign as a memento.
One of the world showcase pavilions, Morocco, is home to some great dining, shopping and entertainment. Morocco is found between the France pavilion and the Tokyo pavilion.
At the very back of the Morocco pavilion is a group of shops. These shops carry a variety of items, from goods to clothing to housewares. At the very back of these shops is a meet and greet location with Princess Jasmine. Now World Showcase only opens at 11am so this is the earliest you can meet Princess Jasmine. She typically only appears here in the afternoon but check your times guide the day of your park day for the exact time.
For those in your party that love Aladdin make sure to add these things to your itinerary. For more tips on planning, check out these previous posts:
