The Alice in Wonderland ride at Disneyland has reopened after a second summer refurbishment. Alice in Wonderland was originally closed in early June with fellow Fantasyland rides Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and Peter Pan’s Flight. After a brief reopening, it closed again in early July for crews to complete maintenance.
Alice in Wonderland
The dark ride first opened in 1958 but was significantly updated in the 1980s.
Guests board a caterpillar-shaped ride vehicle and are transported into the magical world of Wonderland alongside Alice.
The attraction features a few screens, but mostly physical sets and animatronic characters.
Guests travel through the events of “Alice in Wonderland,” falling down the rabbit hole and traversing the different scenes from the film.
There are a few fun effects featuring the disappearing and reappearing Cheshire Cat.
Guests escape the Queen of Hearts via an outdoor ramp with views of the Matterhorn.
Then they head back inside for a merry unbirthday party.
