Disney’s first foray into CD-ROM hits the nascent interactive marketplace like a McDonald’s on the Oregon Trail. If it’s depressing to see the company’s omnivorous product-franchise machine conquer a new frontier (the disc immediately became a best-seller), it should be noted that Aladdin Activity Center is actually pretty good. While the puzzles are passable, and the paint-box software, which allows your kids to wield on-screen crayons and brushes or play connect-the-dots, is standard, Disney’s production values really do make the difference: The animation is slick, bright, and fast, and Dan Castellaneta has a flip appeal as the voice of the genie.
