In the main story Donald runs a successful restaurant and Scrooge wants to know his secret, his MacDuck chains runs poorly since Donald opened next to it. The old miserly duck tries everything to get his hands on his nephewsâ€™ recipe even Daisy goes undercover to spy. But when the Don finds out his family is spying and deceiving him he ruins the dish to take revenge. Without tasting first Scrooge launches a huge million dollar campaign turning MacDuck into MacTasty with chef Donald’s recipes. Of course both Scrooge and Donald are out of business when the people taste the horrible food.

Jasmine arranges a banquet the poor people of Agrabah. She can’t do it without her friends of course, Aladdin invites all his poor pals, Genie is on the food and Abu and Carpet are waiting the tables. As usual in Agrabah there’s a catch, Rasoul (spelled Razoel here) sees the feast as an opportunity to arrest all beggars and thieves along with Aladdin easily. Saves him and his men from chasing them all over the city. What he doesn’t know is that Abu listened on his plan and warns Aladdin.
Genie and Carpet makes sure the captain and his guards have a hard time getting there. From pouring olive oil to onion soup to dumping them at sea. When the guards finally get to the banquet they have to face their princess with a job for them,
