Jasmine's Flying Carpets Attraction at Tokyo DisneySea

We’re thrilled to report that our newest attraction at Tokyo DisneySea, Jasmine’s Flying Carpets, has made its official debut and today we’re sharing a first look with Disney Parks Blog readers.

Themed to the Disney film “Aladdin,” Jasmine’s Flying Carpets is a ride attraction where guests soar over Jasmine’s garden on a flying carpet. You can maneuver your vehicle up and down and tilt the vehicle forward and backward, as if flying your own magical carpet.

Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Director Chuck Ballew says you’ll want to look for what he calls “the most beautiful part of the attraction” – a peacock fan effect on the top of the fountain. The attraction also looks amazing at night, where it comes to life with 15 different color sequences that animate as the carpets travel around the fountain.

Check the blog in upcoming months for more images from our friends in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Paris.

Seeing the statue of Rajah in front of the Flying Carpets, I can foresee a lot of tiger confusion in this area, with the lovable Chandu next door in Sindbad’s Storybook Voyage.

The theming looks very lovely, but how many more aerial carousels does the world really need?

The second story balcony is great! Great photos :)

@ Jim – Well, back before Dumbo got his own area (and shorter lines), it needed a LOT. 😉

And wait, “ours” (at WDW) isn’t over water is it? And peacock lights too…Those Tokyo folks get everything!

It may be another aerial carousel, but truly DisneySea is the best Disney park second to Disneyland.
When will the United States ever get to experience it’s wonders?
Plenty of space at Walt Disney World, hint hint!

These pictures are great! Glad to see my favorite Princess getting her own attraction. Rajah out front is a nice touch. Would love to see what it looks like at night. :)

I love it! When you maneuver the vehicle up and tilt it forward at the same time, it really feels like the carpet is soaring into the sky.
