Flying Carpets

Flying Carpets over agrabahFlying Carpets over Agrabah is a carousel ride at Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris.

This ride features the Genie from the 1992 movie “Aladdin” who invites you to take part in his new movie! Your job is to board one of the Flying Carpets while he directs from the side-lines of a movie set.

You board your Magic Carpet & begin to fly high above the streets of Agrabah. Your Magic Flying Carpets can seat up to 4 people, 2 in front & 2 at back, with complete control as to how high you dare to fly! Only the ones in the front seat has control, via a lever, as to how high the carpet will fly. However, those in the back are not left out as they have control of the “Magic Scarab!”. This lever doesn’t control the height, but it does make the Magic carpet tilt forward or back for an extra added thrill!

As you soar high above you can see the many intricate detailing of the movie set. Genie calls out from his megaphone “Action!”. The ride itself lasts around 90 seconds & is a fun family ride. An added bonus for this ride is the introduction of Fastpasses which can drastically cut down wait times. Guests wishing to board a magic flying carpet must be at least 81cm tall to ride.

If you are just watching while others ride then climb the stairs to a viewing platform giving an aerial view of the ride. Perfect for photos or videos of other guests riding.
