The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is a ride in Magic Kingdom, at Walt Disney World. It is based on the 1992 film, Aladdin. It is similar to the Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction in that riders in the front rows control how high their carpets fly, and the ride lasts about 90 seconds. Aladdin's magic lamp is at the top, rather than Timothy Mouse. At the entrance, there is a camel that squirts people as they walk by, much like the Stitch figurine outside the World of Disney store. Guests who have visited Adventureland before may notice that this area has a new look. The shops look like the marketplace buildings from Aladdin, and different characters from Aladdin are in some of the buildings to do meet & greets and sign autographs.[1]

The attraction opened at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris on 16 March 2002, as Flying Carpets Over Agrabah. The attraction is set against a large "movie set" backdrop of Agrabah, with guests playing as the extras in Genie's directorial debut.

A third version of the attraction opened at Tokyo DisneySea in Tokyo Disney Resort on July 18, 2011, as Jasmine's Flying Carpets. The attraction is next to Sindbad’s Storybook Voyage.
