A Whole New World at Tokyo DisneySea

© Disney

Tokyo DisneySea has opened a new attraction, a spinner in the same vein as the Dumbo rides named Jasmine's Flying Carpets in the park's Arabian Coast area. Themed after the elaborate fountain found in the courtyard of her palace in the movie, the ride takes passengers on a spinning ride up and down aboard one of Jasmine's magic carpets.

Not surprisingly, since the new ride is in DisneySea, it's theming has been kicked up a notch when compared to it's sister ride, Aladdin's Magic Carpet Rides at the Magic Kingdom.  The water effect at the top of the fountain is especially nice in this regard.

The Disney Blog shares some information and photos, and Disney And More has a nice video up.  Not because of this attraction, per se, but DisneySea is so on my bucket list.
