    that's a lot of shows so happy for cast and crew, they should surprise everyone with and carpet being fixed but it probably wont so its whatever.

      Yeah, it's a shame they're still performing with no carpet. Really makes the show look sloppy.

        That would be amazing if they fix the carpet.

            Without the flying carpet, the show should be retired and bring in something new. Sorry, a great show took two steps back without it. I think the carpet accident happened a year ago this month.

              Still one of my favorite shows...I know as a kid I did like the shows at the Fantasyland Theater....but this show just blew all of those out of the water
              Happy Halloween!!!

                What takes so long for a major company to fix that carpet scene? Anyway, it's a great show, but I think something new would be good as well.

                  And finding performers willing to get back up there again.... I don't think it will ever come back.

                    UGH...that's 10,000 shows WAY TOO LONG! Can they just get rid of this tired old show and bring in something new, creative and fresh??? And its only become more of a joke since it's been forever since the magic carpet has flown. The new character stage show coming in summer 2013 to the Fantasyland Theatre will be such a welcome relief.

                    Sorry, but I do not share in the festivities of this occasion of "Aladdin".

                      Obviously the only good part of the show was having the carpet fly. Forget the other 42 minutes.

                        The Genie is always the highlight of the show, and they still have the giant cobra and elephant puppets. That's pretty cool and pretty magical still. Whether the carpet is there or not, it's still a good show. Hopefully it's eventual replacement is worthy, if not completely better. It'd be horrible for the theater to sit abandoned for years on end.

                        The Golden Horseshoe Revue ran for a whopping 39,000 performances. It'd be interesting to see if Aladdin ​will run that long. :P

                          lol, I still enjoyed the show even without that one element

                            Supposedly the Carpet is going to return to the show around November.

                                  I so enjoy that show! I hope it keeps going for many more. I also hope they get a good show in Fantasyland too ...the Snow White one was so lack-luster for me. (I think that was the last one to perform there.)

                                      Do you mean the 2:20 show? Aladdin shifts back to four shows per day the day after labor day so there are no shows at 3:20 anymore.

                                      The show still works well without the carpet but it would certainly be nice to have it back again. When it first drops down it's an especially nice moment for the people who haven't seen the show before.

                                        From what a few little birdies have told me at different times, the Flying Carpet rig is fully functional and safe, but the Show people won't put it back in use. It has to be either an "Aladdin and Jasmine don't want to get on it" or "the lawyers won't let us run it" thing.

                                        I can see reprogramming it to make it pitch a little slower so it can't roll over, but stuff happens and Jas and Al know it - that's why they are strapped in nine ways from Sunday. And probably getting a stunt bonus.

                                        10,000 is a nice milestone, and it's a good little show - but frankly they should start looking for another show idea. They are NOT going to break the streak of Golden Horseshoe Revue.
