VIDEO: Alice in Wonderland Recieves High-Tech Upgrades, Other Fantasyland Dark Rides Next?

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.


Thanks to OSHA, we were forced to stare at some temporary tarps and railings at the Alice in Wonderland attraction at Disneyland for a few years. Finally, earlier this year, the attraction closed for a refurbishment that would repair the outdoor portion of the ride to meet legal requirements and make it look visually appealing to guests. During this time, several high-tech projection-based additions were made to the attraction to give it some new life. The ride recently re-opened to guests, allowing them to take in the Disneyland classic with a whole new sparkle:

This isn’t the first time this has happened to one of Disneyland’s classic dark rides, some similar projection-based modifications were made to Snow White’s Scary Adventures a few years ago. Rumor has it that Peter Pan’s Flight, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, and Pinocchio’s Daring Journey will also be getting similar updates for Disneyland’s 60th anniversary next year. These changes could be announced on Thursday, Disneyland’s 59th birthday, where the park is set to announce all of the festivities planned for the 60th anniversary celebration.

Stay tuned for more information.

  • I seem to remember this ride not having Alice appear, as we (the rider) are supposed to be Alice. Is this the case or am I imagining things? If they have added Alice in, then I suppose this ride has suffered the same fate as the old Snow White’s Scary Adventures (Guests expecting to see the main character but he/she isn’t in the ride).

    • I feel they should have started and ended the ride with Alice having a slight conversation you will be seeing what she sees through the ride. I agree the ride has suffered a bit by adding Alice.

      • I disagree. There’s nothing wrong with added the title to the ride. It’s still the same either way.

  • That was A LOT of zigging zagging. I like the refurbishments but I will opt to go on this ride before I eat or after I eat something light. Thank you OSHA for making Disney upgrade :-)
