How do we go about seeing the Aladdin show? Do we still need a FP or is it first come first serve now?
Great show! The Genie keeps the jokes relevant. No bad seat. It's long, like 45 minutes. And no bathroom in the building so plan for that. - Taunton   462.2 #435 5-8-15 8:26PM Like(1)  Reply
They don't do fast passes. You go stand in line. Last couple times I've had to stand in line for 30-45min to get a good seat. I have seen people run up at the last minute before doors close and they have to go all the way to the top of the theater for seats. - thatgirljenn   1514.4 #100 5-8-15 2:52PM Like  Reply

We've done both several times now over many years. I'm not a fan of Goofys. The characters interactions are MUCH better and more frequent at Minnie's and I think the plaza in the park is just the most perfect and beautiful setting.

Hi everyone! I use MW all the time, but this is my first post. I live in Anaheim so the park is right down the street for me. Just trying to kill some time until our passes are unblocked...mid August.
Welcome! I'm waiting right along with you. Can't wait until next month. - HalfCaff   437.3 #463 7-17-13 6:55PM Like  Reply
