I get the point you're making, as both Mulan and Aladdin came before The Princess and the Frog, but Aladdin represented middle eastern people about as well as minstrel shows represented black people. Take a look at the cast of that film. It's animated brownface.
I have a guilty soft spot for that film (mostly because of Robin Williams), but it's really pretty racist. As a kid I even stupidly thought that Aladdin kinda looked like me. I didn't get it at the time, but I understand now why my dad hated the movie so much.
