What do I love about Aladdin

I do love Disney musicals. One of them is Aladdin. I only saw the musical films and never saw the stage show. What do I love about the musical?

The Songs

  • This is what I am drawn to first about any musical. I love the songs in this musical. As cliche as it sounds my favorite song is “A Whole New World”. The songs are fun and catchy and do have a Disney vibe to them.

The Characters

  • In all the musicals I love, I have to be emotionally connected to the characters or else the emotions don’t matter. It has an extremely likable protagonist, Aladdin. Yes, he may be a street rat- but he has an incredible charm. The genie is great fun- that is all I have to say. I love the romance between Jasmine and Aladdin. Jasmine is strong-willed- I like that about her- her strength.

The Plot

  • This is the final piece of the puzzle. To fully love a musical, you have to love the songs, characters, and the plot- not just one piece. I can’t exactly describe why I love the plot. I just do.


  • Why did I talk about why I love Aladdin today? Well, Club Blume finally let us register for the Aladdin Informance, which was sent out yesterday.I actually got in- the informances always do something related to the show itself. The informance is my first step of actually seeing the stage show of Aladdin on discount.

Magic in Disney Love Songs

There is something special about Disney love songs. It is one of the patterns that exist in musicals. They are all share a similar quality. It doesn’t seem to matter who sings it- they share that same quality. “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “A Whole New World”, and “Something to Believe In” all have that special quality. They have this kind of innocence and magic found in them. I was only listing songs from stage shows. My favorite classic Disney couple is Belle and Beast and my favorite contemporary Disney couple is Katherine and Jack. Whoever sings any of these songs- the magic remains.

Magic of Disney Couples

There is a wonderful magic in Disney musicals. For the past couple of musical posts, a lot of my ideas seem to come from romance. One of my favorite parts of romance come from Disney couples. Whether that is coming from Nala and Simba, Princess Jasmine and Aladdin, Belle and Beast, and Katherine and Jack, there is something wonderful about Disney couples.

The songs of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”, “A Whole New World”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “Something to Believe In” has a special kind of magic in them. It is a bit hard to describe the magic, but I think it has something to do with the youthfulness of the couples and the nature of the songs. The couples from Lion King, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast were couples that I grew up with and the couple from Newsies only came from last August.

But still, when you add romance to a Disney musical, a wonderful nature of magic exists. There is something just special about those songs. They are so heartfelt and filled with innocence and joy. The magic in Disney romance is exactly why I love those couples I believe and I also love them due to my emotional connection to the songs and the characters.
