    Re: Actors using scooters?

    She will not ever DRAG herself across the stage, no matter what. That is simply an absurdly ludicrous statement not driven by a sound mind, so let's all just close that issue now since it goes nowhere.

    I do think they should have a magic carpet wheelchair.

    Anyway, no matter what they may come up with, it is just a Disney show. It doesn't need to be realistic.

    It's a show not a historical reenactment! If you went to a Civil War or Salem Witch Trials reenactment then you can be distracted by something not historically accurate. At a theme park you just have to accept that the Aladdin show has someone in a wheelchair, the runaway mine train has seat belts, and the guy loading you into a giant teacup is wearing sunglasses.

    Awesome!! You took the words right out of my mouth!! Aladdin does give that message, anything is possible NO MATTER what walk of life you are.

    Re: Actors using scooters?

    I don't have anything to add to the conversation aside from saying that I am a fan of Jennifer's, and she is absolutely wonderful in the show. I've been lucky enough to sit at the bottom of the theater a few times, and every time I hear who go by at the end of "Prince Ali," her voice has impressed me.

    Here's a video of her telling her story, if anyone is interested. Disney publicly congratulated her for this a few years ago, so I think it's safe sharing. If not, a mod can remove it.
