Ah, so there’s more than 1. I was spit on while on the ride. I’ll be back over there this afternoon maybe, or later this week

Where exactly is the “missing” camel? The camel on the right side of this picture is here now and spitting. Is there another one?
Yes, as others have said, it stood right in the center of the image I put up, facing toward the camera, not toward the ride itself. However, doesn't mean it's not coming back. Just like the misting tikis nearby this area, they left, were refurbished and came back.

Honestly..?? Turn the beauty and the beast show at HS into Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular, exterior themed to Arabia. And then move this spinner attraction somewhere close to the entrance of the theatre.

HS lacks on attractions anyways, and the Disneyland show was immensely popular.
Changing BatB to Aladdin sounds great.

Putting a spinner on (or just off of) Sunset Boulevard does not sound great. Let’s keep one of WDW’s most beautiful and immersive areas... beautiful and immersive.

(...unless it was completely visually separated, e.g., indoors or something...)

Ok but imagine of how lit a simple spinner like magic carpets could be if, say, you DID go off of your enclosed idea. And it had a dome-like ceiling. And when you ride it, you either ride it to the tune of A Whole New World or Friend Like Me. And you have spectacular/thrilling/beautiful projections appearing all around you. Disney could literally do something so neat like that with a simple flat ride, and it’d up the popularity and quality of the attraction. But also having the live action show debut after the live action film releases? I would think that’d be a business no-brainer. Even if the film flops, Aladdin is a popular enough IP.

Potential to change a B ticket into a solid D! Could not cost that much more. Projections and ride vehicles could be swapped out as the show next door changes in 10 (25) years!

Nooo. I love the Treehouse, especially around dusk.
I like it, too, much like how I like Tom Sawyer island. It's not a "sit and spin" sort of attraction but one where you can take your time and explore. It's unique. I like it because of that but, at the same time, get that people want to sit in an actual ride and be shown things. They really don't like unique, subdued attractions like SFT and TSI.

Does anybody know why Magic Carpets has been closed for at least 2 days and the pathway around it by the Jungle Cruise is roped off and guarded by CMs?

Sounds like an unscheduled maintenance issue, maybe (?) 🤷‍♀️

The fact they closed the walkway around the ride and have people guarding it makes me wonder if something fell in to the path. It’s obviously not just the ride that’s the problem.
