My “One and Done” Rides at Disney World- The Magic Carpets of Aladdin

There are some attractions/rides at Walt Disney World resort that I don’t care about that much and once I’ve done them, I’m happy with only having done them that one time. Here’s post #2 featuring one of my One and Done worthy rides at Disney World.

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin (Magic Kingdom)

Here’s a confession… As someone who wants to ride all the rides at Disney World at least once, I’ve actually never ridden The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Or if I did, I don’t remember it, which makes me think I haven’t ridden it because I would probably at least know if I rode it or not, right? I thought that maybe I waited for my sons to ride this when they were younger but when I asked them if the remembered riding it, they were like “Uhhhh…maybe? What is it again?” 🙄 Thanks, guys.

I’m operating under the assumption that I haven’t ever been on this ride, and over the last 5-6 years I’ve told myself that I was going to get on this during one of those trips to make sure I can check it off as done. I have failed to get in line for The Magic Carpets of Aladdin during any of those trips, mostly because I completely forgot about it.

This ride is pretty much the same thing as the Dumbo ride but it’s in Adventureland and fits perfectly with the theme of the area. You can move your magic carpet up and down or back and forth a bit during the ride. It’s right next to that giant spitting camel statue, so that’s fun, right? Maybe I don’t care that much about this one because it’s so similar to Dumbo or because it just kind of reminds me of a carnival ride.

In any case, I hope to remember to ride this next year once I’m able to get back to Walt Disney World but unless it miraculously ends up being an extremely exciting experience and I find that I absolutely love it, I’m adding The Magic Carpets of Aladdin to my One and Done list. °O°

  1. Great post! I’ve only ever done the Magic Carpets once. Like you say, it’s basically the same as Dumbo, but Dumbo is more of a classic Disney Parks attraction. So, I usually ride that more often.

  2. I am with you on the Magic Carpets being a one-and-done. I have done every ride at Disney once just to say I have done it (with the exception of Rise of the Resistance because I have yet to get a boarding pass). But the rides that go in circles like this one can be found at any fair or amusement park. Not to mention they get me a little motion sick. However, if I have a family member riding them, I am always happy to stand on the sidelines, take their picture, and hold their belongings.
