- Actor Allusion:
- In an attempt to cheer up Jasmine, Genie takes on the role of an elderly British nanny.
- Initially, Cassim was supposed to be voiced by Sean Connery, in a film with similar themes to Connery's own Indiana Jones appearance, but was instead voiced by his co-star John Rhys-Davies.
- Sa'luk is turned into a gold statue and frozen with both his hands raised in the air. This is similar to the typical pose that Lumiere is shown in, and both characters were voiced by Jerry Orbach.
- Missing Trailer Scene: Several from the original VHS trailers:
- Originally, Genie's foreman getup was more muscular than in the film.
- Iago says the line of "Doesn't get any bigger than that!" No where in the film does he say this.
- Footage of Robin Williams is present of him recording "It's a kinder, gentler Genie! Look at this!"
- Aladdin is shown with a bloodstain on his left sleeve during clips of the "Welcome to the Forty Thieves" sequence. Originally, there was going to be a bit of blood shown from the Challenge when Sa'luk slashes Aladdin's arm. A dark shadow resembling blood can briefly be seen on Aladdin's arm after he is injured in the final film.
- The thieves are shown congregating outside against a dusky background, compared to congregating within the stable.
- The same trailer has an instance of Recycled Trailer Music using a snippet of "Jafar's Hour" from the original movie.
- Several shots are shown with Genie having the same design as the Aladdin TV series. Dan Castellenata was meant to reprise his role before Disney decided to reach out to Robin Williams again.
- A coloring book released around the time of the film shows Genie as a rocker, something that does not happen while he is trying to cheer Jasmine up.
- The Original Darrin:
- After being replaced by Dan Castellaneta for the TV series and the first sequel, Robin Williams returns to voice the Genie here.
- While Linda Larkin still voices Jasmine, Liz Callaway takes over from Lea Salonga as her singing voice.
- The Other Marty: Dan Castellenata was meant to reprise his role of Genie from the series and the first sequel, but Disney made amends with Robin Williams to reprise his role, dubbing over Dan's dialogue .
- Throw It In!: Robin Williams improvised the entire scene of Genie trying to cheer Jasmine up while Aladdin is away.
- What Could Have Been:
- Mozenrath was originally planned as the villain in the third film. However, whether he would actually be Aladdin's brother is another story - this is fan speculation, not Word of God. Mozenrath was ultimately not used, due to them wanting to diverge from the TV series and Jonathan Brandis being difficult to contact.
- Sean Connery was cast as Cassim but had to drop out due to other commitments.
- The Triumphant Reprise of Arabian Nights at the end of this movie was originally meant for the end of the original film when the Peddler was slated to be the narrator, who would appear at certain points to give the audience the scoop on the story so far through various reprises of Arabian Nights. This reprise, in particular, would've been sung as the Peddler packed up all his stuff, hopped onto his camel and went riding into the night, saying goodbye to the audience to mark the end of the legend.
- Dan Castellenata was meant to reprise his role of Genie from the series and the first sequel, but Disney made amends with Robin Williams to reprise his role, and dubbed over Dan's dialogue. This film was Williams' only true reprisal of the Genie character (aside from the "Great Minds Think For Themselves" segments Disney made for One Saturday Morning a couple years later).
