Aladdin Musical

“Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” has presented the magical tale of Aladdin for nearly 13 years at the Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure park. This immersive production has been performed more than 14,000 times and is a big hit with guests. It’s one of the best shows I’ve seen at the Disneyland Resort. Be sure to experience this magnificent musical before the final, flying carpet ride on January 10, 2016. A new “Frozen”-inspired musical will open at the Hyperion Theater in the summer of 2016.

“Disney’s Aladdin” premiered on January 16, 2003 and has entertained more than 13 million visitors. The show is based on the popular Disney animated film, “Aladdin” and is filled with music, comedy, dancing and amazing special effects – plus countless timely quips by the Genie.

“Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” performs several times a day and now has Disney FastPass service, to reserve a show time. The schedule is available in the park’s show times guide.

Captivating Scenes from the Show
