Disney's Aladdin Promotional Theater Cup

On the original theatrical release of Disney’s Aladdin in  1992, this theater cup was part of a promotional “Combo” that could be purchased from the theater concession. The cup itself has a beautiful full color image of the heroes from Disney’s Aladdin, as well the name of the promotion’s sponsors on the reverse side. The cup lid is a light blue, 3D plastic sculpt of the Genies head, which has a hole in the top to allow for a straw. The total height of the cup and lid is 26.5cm.
Aladdin was the 31st animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, and was part of the Disney film era known as the Disney Renaissance. Following the success of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin was released on November 25, 1992 to positive reviews, and became the highest-grossing film in 1992, and the highest-grossing animated film up until that time.


  1. Hey - this is an interesting piece. Where did you come across it?

    1. This was one of a few promotional cups and popcorn tubs that were all packed in a box at an estate sale. A lot of the cups were incomplete, but this one, and Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, were particularly nice.
