Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Aladdin, a live show in Hollywood Land at Disney's California Adventure.
Written by Robert Niles
A 50-minute live musical based on the Disney animated film, featuring five songs from the movie, plus one new composition.
Aladdin was slated to close on August 15, 2010, to be replaced by "Toy Story - The Musical." However, Disney has decided to keep Aladdin running indefinitely.
Disney's Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular is a Broadway caliber, lavish, 60-minute tour de force of delightful songs, spectacular dancing, amazing props and special effects, sweeping romance, and tremendous fun. A breezy, truncated live version of the Aladdin animated film, this show features all your favorite songs from the film, plus one new ballad, and yes, a "real" flying carpet. What a wonderful show, one of the, if not the most elaborately staged shows at any theme park. - James Rao
Easily one of the best Disney shows I have ever seen. Keeps you entertained throughout the show's entirety. JUST GO SEE IT. 10/10 - Joe Keenen
FABULICIOUSLY FANTASTICALLISTIC! We sat center mezannine and it was what I think are the best seats in the house. Lower level gets a chance to inteact with cast though, so I might try that next time. The Genie is HILAIOUS and so was Iago and it's a great way to cool off as the show is abotu 45 minutes and the theater is nice and cool. This and world of color TOTALLY worth the price of admission all on their own! - Elia Juarez
what an incredible show this was ive only seen it once but i was in awe, the geenie and Jafar were hilarious!!! this show is a must see. - daniel reyes
Great and funny show! It's so enjoyable that it doesn't feel like 45 minutes. It's a must do for the whole family. It's also a great escape from the heat. - Erik Avila
By far, the best live Broadway-style show in a theme park. From the improv of the genie, to the "world class menagerie" of Prince Ali, to the musical numbers, this show has it all for not being an actual Off-Broadway show. Great fun for all, but some of the pop culture references may be lost to some. - Brandon Mendoza
The best live show in any theme park. This show is Broadway quality and worth the price of a 1 day park admission ticket. The music is great and so is the staging but, the genie steals the show. 11/10 - Will Chilcote
