Mad Tea Party


Mad Tea Party, inspired by “Alice in Wonderland,” was an opening-day attraction at the original Disneyland, as well as at Magic Kingdom, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland. It opened at Tokyo Disneyland in 1986, three years after the park’s opening.

The iconic spinning ride utilizes three small turntables, each holding six teacups. The small turntables spin clockwise, while the large turntable they sit on spins counter-clockwise. Guests can then control the spin of their individual teacups using a disc in the center of their vehicle.

At Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland, the Dormouse pops in and out of a large teapot in the middle of the ride. All versions except the original are covered so the ride can continue operations in the rain, plus protect riders from the sun. The original Mad Tea Party at Disneyland remains uncovered as it originally opened.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Walt Disney originally conceived of Pirates of the Caribbean as a walkthrough wax museum. The idea evolved to become a boat ride and it opened in Disneyland in March 1967, just a few months after Walt’s death.

The original attraction has 630,000 gallons of water, 53 animal audio-animatronics, and 75 human audio-animatronics. Blue Bayou Restaurant overlooks the beginning of the ride.

Pirates of the Caribbean wasn’t an opening-day attraction at Magic Kingdom because the Walt Disney World Resort was so close to the real Caribbean, Disney thought it wouldn’t be of interest to Floridian guests. They were proven wrong, however, and opened the second Pirates of the Caribbean in 1973.

Versions of the ride have gone on to open in Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Shanghai Disneyland.

The ride also spawned the hugely successful “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise, which began in 2003 with “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” There have been five films in total, with more planned.
