Aladdin's Royal Caravan

Aladdin’s
Royal
Caravan

“Make way
for Prince Ali!
Say hey!
It’s Prince Ali!”

Yesterland

Think of Main Street as the city of Agrabah. The cymbals crash! Aladdin’s Royal Caravan approaches! To the tune of “Prince Ali,” you’re treated to a very clever spectacle as Prince Ali—actually Aladdin—and his royal entourage make their grand entrance.

Maybe this should be called the Genie Parade. He’s everywhere. There’s even bathtub Genie, split-in-two Genie, and 32-foot tall Genie.

There’s a whole cast of colorful characters including harem dancers, a snake charmer, and used lamp salesmen. Of course, there’s Jafar and Jasmine.

Watch out! That camel is turning towards you and spitting! Your face is now all wet. Don’t worry, it’s just water... not real camel spit.

Aladdin's Royal Caravan

Aladdin’s Royal Caravan premiered at Disneyland in April 1993, almost a half year after the November 1992 release of Disney’s animated hit, Aladdin. The parade delighted guests not only at Disneyland, but also at Walt Disney World where the parade made its way down Hollywood Boulevard at Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park.

In June 1994, Disneyland guests saw the royal procession for the last time as Prince Ali and Princess Jasmine made way for different royalty—the July 1994 debut of the The Lion King Celebration.
