    I am ready for them to replace Aladdin with another stage show.

    i enjoy aladdin. Not to say they couldnt top the show with something new, but people seem to enjoy going to the show.. as someone else mentioned, there is plenty of other room for improvement in DCA, and the rest of DLR

    It was probably a different genie. When I was there last week there was a lot of different jokes.

    They should replace it with Mary Poppins the musical.

    Re: Will Aladdin close at DCA?

    I love Aladdin
    It is a beautiful and fun show
    the sets and performers are fantastic
    When ever we have attended on Sunday, the auditorium is filled
    People talking excitedly as they leave

    What about adding a new theater instead?
    Monsters U... school theatrical production?

That eye's wandered a LOT over the years, but I keep hoping at the very least they'll add better musical acts, more "Power of Blast" style shows and such and make it an actual theatre instead of another glorified retelling of a Disney movie.
    Actually, the Aladdin show really does have a lot of Broadway caliber items, including some of the costuming (Prince Ali and Jafar, in paticular). Yes, the Snake at the end is a little more cartoony, but it was created that way on purpose, so that it would not be as scary for the younger audience members. And yes the length of the show is considerably shorter, too, but I really dont think you will be seeing a play in a Disney Park longer than this 40 to 45 minute show.

    Add improve Frontierland, to the list also, and a new decent attraction for Toontown, and I completely agree with you

    This is the best stage show in a Disney park. It was the best thing about pre-remodel DCA. If it ain't broke don't fix it. What needs to be fixed: creating a proper theater facade, lobby and a makeover for the surrounding area.

    BTW, if they did want to change it, the Finding Nemo show from AK is amazing. I know that everyone around here want something "original", but it's really, really good.

    Back when the Toy Story Musical hoopla happened, Disney announced that Disney's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular was extended indefinitely. And the show definitely deserves it. It's the best stage production at the Disneyland Resort.

    Re: Will Aladdin close at DCA?

    I was one of the few people upset when Aladdin was announced to be closing. If you ask me, it's the best stage show Disney's ever put on. But just to keep things fresh, I wouldn't mind seeing another show in a few years either.

    Re: Will Aladdin close at DCA?

    Hey! So--it is definitely not closing anytime soon. The company spent about one million dollars on the new flying carpet and all of the training that came along with that. The show will be dark, however, for part of January and February for an expensive refurbishment but it's definitely safe for another 5-10 years!

    ORDDU: My sisters and I wouldn't mind a new show--but we certainly wouldn't vote for Animal Kingdom's Finding Nemo because the music for that show is dreadful. We'd still like to see a new stage show for Rapunzel if anything new comes. In the meantime, unless they can really come up with something better, keeping Aladdin is probably the better thing to do.
