September 4, 2001 – The Magic Lamp Theater Opens in Tokyo DisneySea
On September 4, 2001, the Magic Lamp Theater opened in Tokyo DisneySea in the Arabian Coast area. The attraction features the popular character Genie from the Disney animated feature Aladdin. The theater opens with a special presentation by the snake Bakeet, who explains to the audience the significance of the magical lamp, and how Genie ended up as the magician Shaban’s partner, though Shaban locks Genie away to be seen as the best magician in the world. Guests then go into the theater to see a live show featuring Shaban and his assistant Aseem, though Shaban is failing at his magic. Aseem then unlocks the Genie, which leads to a combination live show and 3D film with magical misadventures.
