El Capitan Theatre to host special engagement of Disney’s Aladdin

Disney’s Hollywood movie palace, the El Capitan Theatre, is bringing out out the Cave of Wonders for guests who come to enjoy showing of Disney’s live-action adaption of Aladdin. From May 23 – June 16, guests can step on stage before the movie for some exclusive fun.

You will want to arrive early to participate in a photo op that provides the unique opportunity to step onto the historic stage and appear to be flying on the Magic Carpet inside the Cave of Wonders! You will also be able to make a wish and try rubbing the Magic Lamp to see if wishes really do come true! Plus, see costumes on display from the movie.

“The whole family is in for a magical time with our special engagement of Disney’s Aladdin,” said Ed Collins, General Manager of The El Capitan Theatre. “Guests will be transported to the Cave of Wonders the moment they step into The El Capitan Theatre, and will be able to step up to the Magic Lamp – make a wish and try rubbing it to see if wishes really do come true! Before each movie, guests will be delighted as they step onto the stage for a very special Magic Carpet photo op. To add to the fun, Guests can also view and admire costumes from the film before and after every screening. There’s just no better place than The El Capitan Theatre to fully experience the wonders of Disney’s Aladdin.”
