Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular Hyperion Theater Hollywood Pictures Backlot Disney’s California Adventure
The Aladdin musical was a guest favorite that ran in the Hyperion Theater for almost 13 years. It closed on January 10, 2016 to make way for the new “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” stage production which opened on May 27, 2016.
Flying carpets, magic lamps, wise-cracking genies, princesses, and evil wizards – they’re all a part of this amazing musical production.
Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular lives up to its name – it is truly a spectacular Broadway-quality show. Many of the classic scenes and songs from the movie are re-created on stage and some of the action even spills out into the aisles, like Prince Ali’s jubilant arrival in Agrabah on elephant back.
This 40 minute production takes place in the 2,000 seat Hyperion Theater, located at the end of Hollywood Blvd. The theater itself is beautiful inside and out, with design features reminiscent of many classic theaters.
Seating is first come, first served.
The theater is divided into three sections: the Orchestra section on the ground floor, the Mezzanine, and the Balcony. You choose which section you want to sit in when you get in line. Sitting in the Mezzanine or Balcony will require climbing up several flights of steps, though there are elevators to the upper levels for those who really need them. And inside the theater, access to any seats in the Mezzanine or Balcony other than those in the back rows requires climbing down some rather steep steps.
Once inside the theater it’s not easy to switch to a different level – you’ll need to see a Cast Member for assistance.
No food or drink is allowed inside the theater.
There are NO RESTROOMS in the theater – make sure to stop before you get in line. The closest restrooms are to the left of the theater as you approach it from Hollywood Blvd.
Special seating areas are available for guests in wheelchairs/ECVs and their parties.
Assistive listening is provided – receivers are available at Guest Relations.
Kids of all ages enjoy this show.
Near the end of the show, Jafar turns into a larger than life cobra snake. This may scare the little ones.
Award Wieners offers a selection of hot dogs and sausages, snacks are available at Schmoozies and Fairfax Market.
Gone Hollywood features Princess Jasmine apparel as well as other Disney Princess costumes and accessories.
Off the Page – Disney animation cels, books, posters, collectible figures, and artwork from Aladdin and other movies.
Alan Mencken composed a new song for Jasmine for this production, called “To Be Free”.
When California Adventure opened, an original Disney musical called “Disney’s Steps in Time” was on stage at the Hyperion. A scaled-down version of the musical “Blast” followed.
“Aladdin” premiered on January 16, 2003.
