Saw Aladdin here for a matinee show with my 7 yo. Orchestra seats center gave an amazing view. Staff here are amazing and presumably Disney trained which really helps with the amount of children there. HUGE bonus for the littles, BOOSTER SEAT CUSHIONS! They don't slide or shift and give the wee ones just enough added height to see over... More

Honestly, I knew it would be amazing to see a Broadway play, but Aladdin was beyond belief. Set and costume changes were constant, the actors were so like the Disney movie characters, and the magic carpet ride was so realistic (is that possible?). The Genie was the best of all - like Cedric the Entertainer mixed with Robin Williams (great... More

The theatre in which Disney's Aladdin is housed is just amazing. So nostalgic and beautifully restored it makes you go 'wow' when you first enter. The show itself was magical. It truly did take us to 'a whole new world' and the cast (Original Broadway Cast) were just incredible. Such amazing vocals and talent that I was showered in goosebumps... More

Why? It's because Disney renovated it to it's glory days. When Disney does something they really know how to get things done right. Came here to see Disney's Aladdin and it was certainly an amazing Broadway show. Loved it!!! Yes the tickets costs a bit, heck let's be downright honest...it's really expensive but let me tell you...it's really worth every... More

If you can take the time to see a play head down to New Amsterdam Theater and see Disney's Aladdin. The Theater has that old world charm and the play is just awesome.

Seeing Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theater is Broadway at its finest. The set designs, choreography, acoustics, singing and flourish are simply amazing and totally captivating.

We made it to the theater and had our tickets on my cell phone, but apparently their scanner doesn't scan pictures, you have to be connected to the internet to show them the tickets on your phone. Had to get out the long line to go back to the Box Office and have them printed out. Other than that, the... More

We saw aladdin, and it was nothing short of amazing.. the best word to describe the show is the word "spectacular", A must see if you come to New York, and worth every penny. we has good seat (orchestra), and we were amazed every moment of the show.. don't mind...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
