Everyone’s got a favorite character, right? Well Alice, from Alice in Wonderland, is mine! Did you know there’s actually some awesome Alice attractions at Disney World? Some are hard to find, but there’s definitely more than just Pixar and Princesses in the most magical place on earth.
Alice in Wonderland
It is certainly no surprise to see the Alice in Wonderland attraction on this list, since it literally takes you through the movie. This is a dark ride style attraction, with several scenes taken straight from the big screen. There are a few parts that may be scary for little ones, but in true Disney fashion there is a happy ending. Check out the video above to see what you’ve been missing.
Mad Tea Party
The Mad Tea Party is a must do attraction on all of our Disney trips. It’s the most Disney-ish attraction at any park that I can think of, it’s just iconic. Themed after the tea party with the Mad Hatter in the film, you board a brightly painted colorful teacup and embark on your spin. The Disney World version is better than Disneyland, in my humble opinion, because of the huge teapot in the center and playful string lights along the canopy of the ride.
It’s a Small World
This is hands down my favorite Disney ride, and it is so underrated! The Disneyland version has actually been populated with a number of popular characters, in their respective scenes, including Alice and the White Rabbit during the UK section of the ride.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the case in Disney World.
However, there is still a fun Alice twist. All of the original dolls in It’s a Small World were designed by Mary Blair. You may have heard that name before, because she was a prominent art director for Disney. In fact, she handled many of your favorite animated Disney films – including Alice in Wonderland
Meet & Greets
Our favorite way to celebrate the wonderful Alice, and all her friends, is stop by and say hi! You can catch Alice, the Mad Hatter, and sometimes additional characters, right in front of the Mad Tea Cups ride in the Magic Kingdom. The gang is only there for a short period each morning, so make sure to check the times guide before your day begins.
You can also meet Alice where it all started, in the UK – pavilion that is. Over at Epcot you can meet both Alice AND Mary Poppins just outside of the Royal Tea Garden. You’ll find Alice in this location far more often than in Magic Kingdom, and it just feels more authentic. How can you beat meeting Alice at the UK pavilion in the middle of a garden! The Instragram caption almost writes itself.
Alice Inspired Eats
Supercalifragilistic Breakfast at 1900 Park Fare
Park Fare is the ugly step-sister of the Royal Princess character meals at Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Litterally! This is one of the rare locations that you can meet Cinderella’s ugly step-sisters. But, you can meet many more than that! During the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast you can meet Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Mary Poppins, and of course…Alice and the Mad Hatter!
Wonderland Tea Party at 1900 Park Fare
The Wonderland Tea Party at 1900 Park Fare is a fantastic event for little ones, aged 4 to 12. I’m actually more than a little jealous. Your child will get to meet their favorite Alice characters, decorate cupcakes, and make a craft to take home. All while enjoying an authentic English tea party.
If you’re not able to make it to 1900 Park Fare, be sure to check out the Chesire Café.The snack stop in Fantasyland carries you conventional Disney snack items as well as Chesire Cat Tails. Don’t worry! It’s not a real cat tail, but it will disappear just like the Chesire himself. This treat is a yummy pastryl with pink and purple frosting drizzled over top.
