David Robbins: Our trip to Disney showed the high life is not for me...
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin is, according to the Unofficial Guide to Disneyworld, a "minor attraction. . . a visually appealing children's ride" lasting one-and-a-half minutes.
"Can we go on it," pleaded my six-year-old daughter. "Please."
We sat into our carpet buggy and the ride began to move, nice and slowly. Other buggies rose and fell. I noticed a lever on the panel in front of us.
