The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Adventureland


INTRODUCTION


Located in Adventureland, across from Swiss Family Treehouse and beside “The Enchanted Tiki Room” are the Magic Carpets of Aladdin! Themed after Disney's Aladdin animated film, the colorful ride fits right into the theme of Adventureland.

ATTRACTION


The attraction design is very similar to the Dumbo Ride. It is a hub-and-spoke attraction with 4-passenger vehicles (16) configured as magic carpets centered by a giant -- and animated -- Genie lamp.

McKinley Family riding the Magic CarpetsJoelk reports:

"The floor of the boarding and queue areas is nice, too. Terra Cotta style tiles, nicely aged, and distressed concrete in some areas with embedded "jewels".

"Only one camel facing the ride, and he spits in one direction at one level (about mid-level), so you're not going to get very wet on this ride, even if you try. The other camel faces outward in the direction of the Adventureland entrance, and his head moves back and forth."

Boarding arrangements have changed slightly since the attraction opened. The attraction host/hostess has a hand-held counter to tally a precise number of guests. Also, the boarding spiel has been lengthened with the addition of Spanish safety warnings. This pushed the movement control directions to approximately when everyone is already seated.

"The ride was very short. I timed it at 80 seconds, from start to beginning of the landing (when the carpets descend.) A manager said it's the same ride length as Dumbo."

TOURING TIPS


The vehicles are rider-controlled and you can fly your magic carpet up, down or pitch forward or backward. The front control is up and down, the back seat control pitches the carpet forward or backward.

Each seat can hold 2 adults and probably a small child, or one child and one adult.

Look for the water-spewing camels that "spit".
