Return to Fantasyland – Return to Disneyland

The Mad Tea Party attraction is a spinning ride located in the Fantasyland section of Disneyland. It is based on the iconic scene from Disney’s animated movie “Alice in Wonderland,” where Alice attends the Mad Hatter’s tea party. The ride features a collection of large teacup ride vehicles, each of which can seat up to four guests. The teacups are mounted on turntables that spin around a central hub, and guests can control the spinning of their own teacup by turning a wheel in the center of the ride vehicle.

As the ride begins, the teacups begin to spin faster and faster, creating a whirlwind of motion and color. The ride is set against a backdrop of vibrant, oversized teapots, teacups, and saucers, giving riders the impression that they have shrunk down to the size of a teacup and are part of the Mad Hatter’s wacky tea party. The Mad Tea Party attraction is designed to appeal to guests of all ages, and it is a popular choice for families with young children. The ride duration is around two minutes, and the spinning can be adjusted to accommodate different levels of motion sickness.

Overall, the Mad Tea Party attraction captures the whimsical and nonsensical spirit of “Alice in Wonderland,” and it has been a beloved ride at Disneyland since its opening in 1955.
