Saw the 12:40 Aladdin show yesterday, and the carpet was not flying for the couple or the genie... Anybody know what happened?

Did they ever bring it back after they took it out 1-2 years ago?

Yes, I saw it last year about this time. Although for that show, the carpet was working, but not the 2 'wire' effects: after 'One Jump Ahead' and walking down into the cave of Wonders.

I saw the show about a month ago and the carpet was flying -- I was so happy they brought it back. The show lagged during that song without Aladdin and Jasmine being present.

More than likely a technical issue.

not sure but reminded me of my first non flying dumbo situation that happened to us the first time we went to Disneyworld....waited in line for about 40 minutes, got our feather, got in our Dumbo, got the video camera ready for our flight....than our dumbo decided that there must have been high winds just like the Macy's parade, and so we flew close to the ground :(....

Yes, the carpet has been back. We saw it during one of our summer trips. We went to see Aladdin on November 26, and there was no flying carpet in use. In fact, we didn't even see it hanging up there at all.

Everything was running fine mid-October. I hadn't seen Aladdin in 6 years and I had forgotten how good it was. The only clunker, imo, is Jasmine's solo. Stops the show cold...

Saw the show Saturday. Carpet was flying :)
I hadn't seen the show in a few years. I forgot how much I enjoy seeing it!
