    He worked in Star Jones last Friday. I thought he was pretty fast on his feet as it only happened a few days before. Not everyone got it though.

    Hey, I know. Let's stop doing the show in English! That'll make it even more realistic!

    The flying carpet was not intentionally removed from the Aladdin show, it was stolen!

    I know awhile back they had someone fall from the carpet area doing checks (they did die) and I think there was another close call at some other time.
    I think the lawyers had it taken out for safety reasons.
    OSHA made them pay big time for the accident.
    I don't think they want to put anyone lives in danger, nor do they want to pay out for the fines.

    I believe it's all part of SAG
    It's why the get paid differently and have rules than other CM's

    Since it's a staff member on the carpet, they would have had to sign a contact saying if anything happened disney would not be liable, especially if it was all safe, and some fluke accident happened. I can tell you from theater experience, they dont take it out if something happens, they fix it.

    Many things have been taken out due to the Disney lawyers.
    And OSHA doesn't care,
    they will fine you if they feel the accident could have been prevented.

    yeah i went on the 29th and the carpet wasn't there either. a little disapointmented by that. also, the sorceress never popped up near the end. It was funny when they were trying to trap jafar in the lamp and it went somthing like "take that you invisible sorceress!" lol.

    That accident was proven to be the fault of the person who fell. They did not have the safety harness clipped on to the railing, so it wasn't any fault on Disney's design. Plus I saw the show many times after that and the carpet was always in use. One time I went, it wasn't, the next time it was. I suggest asking CM's at the ticket door if they know if it working today or not. They will usually tell you.
