    What's going on with Aladdin's Oasis in Adventureland?

    My first time making a thread here so forgive me if this is like one of those repeat threads, but I've been wondering if they plan on doing anything inside of the building? Do they still do meet and greets?

    I've brought up the idea [as well as many people here] to build an Aladdin dark ride in its place. Now I'm not sure if that would be possible since there's some tight spacing with the Tiki Room, Carnation Caf and Jungle Cruise surrounding it. Though I'm afraid it will only make the already crowded area worse.

    Looking at the map it seems like there's room, and by map I don't mean the DL map where 'trees' cover the backstage areas, I'm talking about a satellite map, there is a very narrow space of trees behind the Oasis building whice could possibly be used? I could be wrong.

    Just the idea of it would bring a whole new world to Adventureland and make every moment red letter.

    Anyways that's my idea, discuss.

    Right now, Aladdin's Oasis is just empty. Occasionally you will see Aladdin or Jasmine doing meet n greets, but thats only in the entrance and front courtyard. But the area it's in doesn't lend itself well to a ride, or much more than what it was, a show. There isn't really much space back there, and if you compare it, it would be half the space of a Fantasyland dark ride or Pooh, and those are small rides to begin with. And that's minus the queue. I do agree that an Aladdin dark ride would be great though. I always thought they should have a tiki room extension, kinda a post-show, eatery mix. It could finally be like the tiki room was intended...

    Right there's nothing there anymore other then a meet and greet in front of the enterst there. I know they are there most of the time but around 2:30pm for sure I see them there all the time. They usely come when Musical chairs is starting cause when Musical Chairs is going both Aladdin and Jasmine cut right though Coca Cola Cornder to get to Aladdin's Oasis.

    If they're not going to do anything but a meet-and-greet they should at least do it inside the Oasis. The Cave of Wonders entrance is a great set piece.

    it really isn't used much, I know alot of the performers from the princess tiana and the jambalaya jazz band use it to go to and from NOS... and you can sometimes find Aladdin and Jasmine doing meet and greet in front, and ocassionally I have found Genie doing the meet and greet thing too

    I haven't seen Genie in a long time. I think the last time I saw him was back in 2006.

    I like that I deal but I think the reason why they don't use that part is some kind of safty reason just in case there was a fire there. I think that could be why they have it now as a meet and greet place and not a story time place now.

    Thanks guys.

    I figured there is little to no room to put a full attraction, half of a FL dark ride is a VERY small space. I just hope they put something in it...a stroller parking area? A new Indy action stunt show? A small restaurant?

    A flying carpet dark ride would have been awesome.

    I know nothing is set, but do A & J usually meet and greet? DD is obsessed with Jasmine and now that I see the musical is dark while we're there, I'm hoping to find her in Adventureland.

    Yes they do a meet and greet there. Capt Hook just posted two of the best in my opinion.
