  • News Magic Carpet to return to "Aladdin, a musical spectacular"!

    After speaking to a technician after one of the shows last week, she informed me that there was an "unofficial strong possibility" that the Magic Carpet that flies over the audience carrying Aladdin & Jasmin during "A Whole New World" will return to the show sometime Around November. This comes after almost a year since a mishap during the "whole new world" song caused the carpet to flip upside down with Aladdin and jasmin still attached. Since then, the magic carpet has not been in the show.

    I heard they're adding a loop. The first time was just a test run.

      I heard on the internet that they were going to actually use jet packs as back ups in that scene.

          This should be listed as rumor rather than news, but hopefully it will come to pass.

          Unfortunately, my visit will be in October, not November. But better late than never.

            Unfortunately the flying carpet isn't the only thing the show has lost in its run.

              I just hope that they've re-designed and tested the new carpet before they stick those kids up there again. Glad they had the safety harnesses, but that should never have happened. Did anyone ultimately figure out what went wrong other than "computer" or "operator" error?

                If they haven't re-designed and tested it...then what have they been doing for a year??

                  It would be nice if the flying carpet returned for the 10,000th performance of the show.

                    I really hope the carpet comes back! It was one of the cooler bits of the show, to have them actually flying over the audience.

                        It really was a series I unfortunate events. Neither operator or computer error.

                        Unfortunately, the corporate big-wigs were more interested in the Cars Land opening.

                          on my last trip I was waiting for it. I had never seen the musical on my recent number of trips to the DLR in the past years and have always missed this performance. I finally caved in this time around and saw it, it was great and a definite escape from the heat and I got 2nd to front row with my party.

                          I was bummed when the carpet flying trick didn't work. I kept looking up and all around when they were singing and was waiting for the audience to react in unison but nothing.

                          So sad 'cause I could have seen the trick in the years before on my other visits. Dang it!

                            If they wanna cut something from the show, start with that awful "all I gotta do is jump" bit. He's Aladdin, not spider-man.
