Flying Carpets over Agrabah

Children of all ages are invited to be the stars of a crazy film shoot directed by the Genie at Flying Carpets over Agrabah. Disney's 1992 animated feature, Aladdin - one of Disney's most popular animated pictures - inspires this colourful attraction filled with the wonder of genies, flying carpets, magic lamps and Arabian mystique.

Waiting in the wings…
Visitors to the attraction pass through the 'green room' on their way to the film set, the traditional area where actors wait until they are called onto a film or TV set.  This elaborate queue line has the feel of a film-set backstage area, featuring behind the scenes production information alongside graphics that direct the 'actors' towards the main set.

A director with no direction
The set for Flying Carpets over Agrabah is that of an animated film, and features a massive animation-style background depicting a colourful day-to-night desert scene.  The centrepiece of the set is a giant genie's bottle adorned with paintings of characters from Aladdin.  Sixteen flying carpets, each of which can carry up to four people and can be made to fly up and down, whiz around the Genie's lamp.
Like all 'great' actors, the Genie from Aladdin really wants to do is direct, and visitors to this attraction are invited into his animated world as the 'actors' in his first film. They climb aboard a magic carpet and take it for a 'spin' as they perform in a scene that Genie is directing, assisted by a mischievous camera crew.  As the guest stars in the movie 'play' their roles on the flying carpets, the Genie encourages them with directions in English and French.
