The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is a true spinner attraction that lifts guests high into the air and spins them around. Similar rides include Dumbo, the Flying Elephant, over in Storybook Circus, and TriceraTop Spin at Animal Kingdom.

The queue for The Magic Carpets of Aladdin wraps around the attraction in a circle form.

In most cases, you can gauge the length of the line ahead of you. However, with the addition of a separate Lightning Lane, some guests will continuously bypass those waiting in standby.

When you board a magic carpet, there are two rows. The front row offers the opportunity to adjust a lever that will make your carpet fly up and down.

The back row has a magic button that allows you to tilt your carpet back and forth minimally. As a result, whoever rides on the front row will have more overall control.

Next, a cast member makes sure everyone has secured the seatbelt-style restraint. After that, the carpets will lift into the air. At that time, you can adjust and fly your carpet as you like.

Be careful, though! Just outside Magic Carpets, there’s a pair of camels. Unfortunately, one of them is a real spitter.

You might get sprayed in the face as you are flying high and enjoying yourself.

It’s not enough to do any damage, but it’s pretty hilarious for children. My bunch likes to make me sit on the outside and purposely adjust our magic carpet so I’ll get wet. They get such a kick out of it, and I can’t help but laugh myself.

The Magic Carpets are near and dear to my heart. It was the first attraction my son ever experienced at Walt Disney World when he was three years old.

I hear so many complaints about spinners, and I always think it’s kind of sad. Give one a try on your next visit. The aerial views are absolutely spectacular, and take note of that child in front of you grinning from ear to ear.

Walt Disney World is a place that has something for everyone, and not everything has to be a thrill ride. There are far worse ways you could choose to spend your day.
