In 2001, Disney added The Magic Carpets of Aladdin in the middle of Adventureland. The ride is essentially the same as Fantasyland's Dumbo, but with flying carpets instead of flying elephants, moving up and down and around and around. Also like Dumbo, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin doesn't accommodate very many riders at once, so expect a long wait if there's many people in this slow-moving line.


Aladdin is really one of my favorite Disney movies, but this ride is kind of pathetic. I mean, it's good at what it's supposed to be, a spinner, but besides that, there's really no point in having it. We already have Dumbo and Space Orbiter, so make Aladdin into another indoor ride! Everyone loves those :-)
Overall - 5/10
It's a spinner. Not quite sure why Disney decided to build this. It's the exact same ride as Dumbo, just with an Arabian overlay. Aladdin is one of the best Disney movies, and it deserves a lot better than this, honestly. Get rid of it.
An awesome family ride! An amazingly detailed journey through Agrabah aboard magic carpets. It's especially magical for small children.
Everytime I walk by this ride, I think to myself 'WHY?'. This is literally the definition of pointless. There is so much more that Disney could have done with Aladdin, such as a simulator that follows Aladdin into the Cave of Wonders or on the ride he takes with Jasmine. Instead, we get a generic ride that just goes around and around. Even though Dumbo is literally the same thing.
This ride clashes theme wise and has no place here.
Pointless attraction.
Adventureland used to have a spacious marketplace courtyard. Thanks to this lame spinner it is now very cramped.
This is a Dumbo copy which offers nothing unique at all. Skip it or do it late in the evening, when you're accidently at Adventureland and Pirates is already closed!
Why have this ride, Disney has dumbo, space orbitor..waste of space! 1/10.
Shouldn't exist. The last thing MK needs is more spinners.
Just another Dumbo style ride. Great for the kids.
A nice flight above adventureland. Another lame dumbo clone, but my family liked it.
