Disney’s Aladdin A Musical Spectacular to be replaced by a Frozen musical

Sad news was released overnight for fan’s of Disney California Adventure’s “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” show.  The show will be officially retired in January 2016 with a new Frozen show replacing it.

The Hyperion Theater has been home to the Broadway quality musical Aladdin since the park first opened and has played to rave reviews and has a bevy of rabid fans.  The pop culture reference jokes that the Genie performs live each day keep the audience in stitches and will be sorely missed by many.  I’m glad to be getting to see the show soon before it retires.  “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” will take its  final curtain call on January 10, 2016 after nearly 14,000 shows.

If you’re a fan of the deep freeze that the movie Frozen has placed on Disney Parks worldwide, you’ll be excited to hear that Disney California Adventure will play host to a new Frozen live musical beginning Summer 2016 (likely June).   The show will offer “elaborate costumes and sets, stunning special effects and surprising scenic transformations.”

Rumors have abounded for several years that Aladdin would be replaced.  But fans spoke up and the park retained the musical celebration.  I’m sure the new Frozen show will be amazing and fun, but this just seems like overkill to me.  It seems like everywhere you turn is Frozen merchandise, Frozen shows, Frozen summer celebrations.  I’d love to see them more fully develop more of their other franchises.

  1. Why in the world are they taking out Aladdin, honestly Frozen has enough stuff and it is taking over. THEY NEED TO STOP. Keep the wonderful classic of Aladdin. The genie is the best character and always make us laugh no matter how many times we see it.

  2. Why are they taking away their best show? The entire performance is so wonderful no matter how many times I see it. I absolutely LOVE this production at DCA. Aladdin deserves to stay at California Adventure for a longer period of time! Please keep Aladdin alive at DCA!! this show makes my Disney trips worth every penny!

  3. Extremely disappointing news. What in the world are you doing Disney?! Taking away the Aladdin show? Seriously!? Please keep the Aladdin show. Listen to all of the feedback you are receiving. We want to keep Aladdin. This show is always the HIGHLIGHT of my many trips to Disneyland. Seeing Aladdin come alive on stage at DCA is ultimately THE BEST part of my trips. Even to this day I always hear people raving about this show. Renovate the stage/effects if the technology is outdated! Do NOT replace this show! KEEP ALADDIN.

  4. I am very disappointed to hear of this news. Frozen is a great movie but I have had enough of it. there is nothing better than the classic Disney that every one loves! We were planning a trip to DL in 2016. We won’t be able to see this show that everyone raves about. So bummed.

  5. Sad to read this. I love that show and was planning to one day take my son to see it. He has autism and plane rides are tough for him. It was my hope that in another year or two that his anxiety would be better and we could possibly travel next summer or in 2017.

  6. Oh, I am so sad to hear this! My daughter and I went to DL for the first time in March and the Aladdin show was a huge highlight for us. We were hoping to take her dad to see it someday. Sigh. This is the first time I’ve felt like “Enough already!” with Frozen.

  7. Very sad news indeed. I enjoy Frozen but there is enough of it. I would keep the Frozen Sing A Long, which is excellent and keep Aladdin, which is so unique. I don’t understand the mind set that everything must be Frozen now
