Throwback Thursday: The Genie in Aladdin

Meeting the Genie in Adventureland.

Meeting the Genie in Adventureland.

Robin Williams passed away this week and we thought we would do our Throwback Thursday featuring The Genie from Aladdin.

The Genie is considered a “rare” Disney character because, while he sometimes appears in parades, he almost never is available at a Meet & Greet, except during special occasions.

We were lucky to see The Genie during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in October 2013.

The following statement is from Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company: 

We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and a comedic genius, Robin will always be remembered for bringing some of the world’s favorite characters to life, from his zany alien on ABC’s Mork & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney’s Aladdin. He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of our family, and he will be sorely missed. We join Robin’s friends and fans everywhere in mourning, and offer our thoughts and condolences to his family during this difficult time.

Very touching!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.

Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
