The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is a ride in the Magic Kingdom, at Walt Disney World. It is based on the 1992 film, Aladdin. It is similar to the ride Dumbo the Flying Elephant, in that riders in the front rows control how high their carpets fly, and the ride lasts about 90 seconds. There is Aladdin's magic lamp at the top, rather than Timothy Mouse. At the entrance, there is a camel that squirts people as they walk by, much like the Stitch figurine outside World of Disney shop, also in Walt Disney World. Guests who have visited Adventureland before may notice that this land has a new special look. The different shops look like the marketplace buildings from Disney's Aladdin. Different characters from Aladdin are in some of the buildings to do meet & greets and sign autographs.
The attraction also opened at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris on March 16, 2002 under the title Flying Carpets Over Agrabah. The attraction is set against a large "movie set" backdrop of Agrabah, with guests playing as the extras in Genie's directorial debut.
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is based on the hit Disney animated feature Aladdin. The story continues at the park as the lovable Genie, in a fit of flight and fancy, has conjured up an entire fleet of magic carpets (16 in all) for adventure-seeking Guests to experience on this attraction.
Take off on a magical ride above a bustling bazaar aboard an enchanted carpet that you control. Climb aboard a colorful, 4-passenger vehicle and take off into the air as the strings of Middle Eastern music play overhead.
Rotate around a giant genie bottle and magic lamp—bobbing up and down, forward and back—as the lush flora and weathered walls of the bazaar whirl by below. But be on the lookout: An unruly camel who likes to occasionally “spit” water at flying carpets has been seen nearby!
As the master of your very own flying carpet, you are in control of your flight. If you’re seated in the front row, direct how high or low you fly by moving an onboard lever up or down. If you’re sitting in the back row, pressing a magic scarab will tip your flying carpet forward or backward.
