Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular takes the stage on the Disney Fantasy. During this Broadway-style production, guests laugh along with the wise-cracking Genie and the cast from the classic animated Disney film, Aladdin. In this fast-paced musical comedy, Aladdin is back as the “street rat” of Agrabah, who ends up with a Genie who grants him three wishes, battles the evil Jafar and falls in love with Princess Jasmine. Many of the classic scenes and songs from the movie are re-created on stage and some of the action even spills out into the aisles, like Prince Ali's jubilant arrival in Agrabah on the back of a stallion.

Magic lamps, wise-cracking genies, princesses, and evil wizards are all a part of this musical production. And of course, an Aladdin production would not be complete without a magic flying carpet scene, which combines mechanical wizardry with state-of-the-art projections, allowing Jasmine and Aladdin to soar as they perform a heartfelt duet of, “Whole New World.” 

Many of the songs from the movie are featured in the 45-minute musical production, including “Friend Like Me,” is performed as a lively, Las Vegas-style production number featuring special effects, illusions and more than a dozen dancing genies. Composer Alan Menken, who created the original soundtrack with songwriters Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, composed an original song for the stage production entitled "To Be Free." 

The theater is a 1,340-seat proscenium style theater (2,300sq-ft. stage and 46’0” wide by 20’10” high proscenium opening) with three deck lifts, eight tracked deck winches, four  overhead roll drops, 20 motorized line sets, 15 traveler tracks and four performer flying systems. As with any cruise ship, storage is limited, but four scenic portal extensions, four  scenic sliders, seven scenic drops, and 17 wagons – including one very important Magic Carpet Wagon - were able to fit well with the other shows scenery.
