Disney's Alice in Wonderland unspooled on March 5,2010, bringing to life via director Tim Burton's wildly creative combination of live-action filmmaking, traditional and CGI animation.
More an extension of Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass" and "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" than a remake, the film,which stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and newcomer Mia Wasikowska, is just the latest adaptation in a collection of films that dates back to 1905.
It also continues Disney's love affair with Alice and her odd acquaintances,as the property is arguably one of the most famous and adored at Disney parks around the world.
Every Disney park has a Fantasyland-based teacup attraction,which goes by different names. At the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts the attraction is known as the Mad Tea Party. The Tokyo Disneyland version is called Alice's Tea Party,Disneyland Paris has Mad Hatter's Tea Cups,and at Hong Kong Disneyland you can ride the similarly-named Mad Hatter Tea Cups. Each of the attractions opened with their respective parks, execpt for the Tokyo rendition, which opened in 1986 (the park opened in 1983).
In addition to the popular teacups, two more Alice in Wonderland-themed attractions exist at different Disney parks.
Here at Disneyland,Alice in Wonderland puts Guests in Alice's shoes as she follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole into Wonderland.
At Disneyland Paris, Alice's Curious Ladyrinth is a maze that eventually leads to the castle of the Queen of Hearts. The route has a similar shape to the body of the Cheshire Cat, and Guests can see a sky view of Fantasyland at the very end.
