A reviewer for The LA Daily News says that the new Aladdin musical stage show at Disney's California Adventure is filled with moments of "Disney magic" but falls short in other areas.

I saw the show in Decemeber and i thought it was a excellant show and one of the best i have ever seen in any theme park!!!
Now if only SF could put on some type of production like this!!!

Blast owned it, I'm still pissed that they even let Blast go in the 1st place, they always filled the theatre with thier performances!

Well, the Orange County Register said almost exactly the same thing in their review. In addition, I feel the same way about the show. Its okay, even fun sometimes, but something that I would only want to see once.

And even as good as it was, it sure doesn't live up to the standards of the "broadway spectacular" that they advertise it as.

I was extremely impressed with the show. I think some people are being too hard on it just because it is advertised almost as a broadway spectacular. Yes, it wasn't anywhere near as good a broadway spectacular, but it was still by far the best show I have ever seen at any amusement park. I give it two thumbs up. If I was seeing the exact same show on broadway, then of course my reaction would be different, but this is a theme park, not broadway...
