Can you believe it's been 23 years since "Aladdin" arrived in theaters?!
Yes, folks, it really was 1992 — back when mobile phones were bulky things mainly attached to a cord in your car, back when the only Facebook around was the printed kind you got at the end of every school year, back when CGI 3D animation wasn't even a thing.
Well, "Aladdin" is back and will now be arriving as a Diamond Edition Blu-ray & DVD ($19.88 on Amazon) on October 13, and CC and I were at Walt Disney Studios this weekend to celebrate.
It was actually CC's first time seeing the animated film, featuring a scrappy "street rat," a sassy princess and a hilarious and heartwarming genie, which, by the way, should go down as one of Robin Williams' most iconic roles.
I loved re-living the songs with my 8-year-old, who was hearing "A Whole New World" and "Friend Like Me" for the first time on-screen.

A little piece of trivia I didn't know was that Weinger also played Steve Hale on TV series "Full House," and he'll be reprising his role in the new spin-off "Fuller House."
And speaking of "Full House," Jodie Sweetin was on hand with her family enjoying the Disney festivities, too.
I was able to grab a photo of CC with Sweetin, and it kind of blew my mind.
Obviously, I know time has passed, but it was bizarre seeing her as a grown woman. I mean, what happened to that curly-haired little girl who played Stephanie on the show?
CC, luckily, held it together better than I did. And yes, she totally enjoyed the movie, especially the genie.
