Aladdin is a soaring magic carpet ride through Agrabah, the City of Enchantment. In the heart of the city lives a street urchin named Aladdin whose whole life changes when he discovers a magic lamp and unleashes a fun-loving, larger-than-life Genie who grants him three wishes. Aladdin sees this as his opportunity to be with the beautiful, free-spirited Princess Jasmine, who is only allowed to marry a prince. When the evil Jafar steals the lamp and tries to get the three wishes for himself, Aladdin must find a way to save the kingdom. Through his adventures, Aladdin learns that he is a prince where it truly matters most -- on the inside. Aladdin is a celebration of finding everlasting love and being true to oneself no matter what the circumstances. The thrilling score of this classic family production includes Disney favorites "A Whole New World" and "Friend Like Me."
