The Magic Carpets of Aladdin – Adventureland – Magic Kingdom
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.
The attraction design is very similar to Dumbo the Flying Elephant. It is a hub-and-spoke attraction with 4-passenger vehicles (16 of them) configured as magic carpets centered by a giant — and animated — Genie lamp.
When boarding, the attraction host/hostess has a hand-held counter to tally a precise number of guests.
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is a FastPass+ attraction and it is highly recommended that you use it during peak times.
This is a fairly short ride, about 80 seconds long.
When walking the queue and boarding, look down to see gems embedded in the pavement
Watch out for the camels outside this attraction — they spit!
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 two adults and probably a small child, or one child and one adult.
Kids love this ride. It’s almost identical to the Dumbo ride.
You may find Jasmine and Aladdin or other characters from the film Aladdin nearby — check the Times Guide for when they might appear for Meet & Greets.
The Tortuga Tavern (open seasonally) and Aloha Isle are close to the Carpets.
