    When did Aladdin get another Lamp?

    Can anyone tell me the story of Aladdin's other lamp? I can guess as to why it exists, but I can only see two real answers. One possibility is that the lamp existed in Adventureland before Aladdin came out, and the other was added to keep a classic concept in place. The other idea is that Disney couldnt get Robin Williams to voice a coin operated fortune teller and opted for the easy exit, like Bennythe cab in Toontown. Which is true? Or are they both wrong, leaving an even more interesting story?

    Your first possibility is the correct one. I remember that thing being there in the 80s, simply labeled "Aladdin's Lamp." At least one of the recordings, however, post-dates the Indiana Jones Adventure.

    Great Question, skprnck! Yeah, I'd like to know if there is any official background story about Aladdin's other lamp! And when specifically it was added t the bazaar.

    Also, was Shrunken Ned addedat the same time?


    I had heard that Aladdin's other lamp is at Paris DL, also. Which Parks also have the other lamp and Ned?

    My mistake I thought this was in reference to the "lost lamp"... carry on.

    I remember it being added in the 90s, when they decided to give Adventureland some attention at the time Indy opened.

    I think the reference is more of a joke than anything else. This isn't the famous Aladdin's Lamp w/ all powerful genie. This is his other lamp--a coin-operated fortunetelling machine.
