Alice In A Disney Easter Wonderland

The characters from the 1951 Walt Disney animated version of Alice in Wonderland are logical ambassadors of a springtime celebration. In 1996, The Disney Catalog featured lively Easter merchandise starring Alice and the White Rabbit.

If you use real eggs with the egg holder, be sure you remember to remove the eggs before you put the Easter decorations back in the attic.

Uh-oh! This egg has been broken in two! That's OK, because there's a scene from Alice in Wonderland inside, and you'll want to see it.

Are there scenes inside the Fantasy Eggs With Stands? Let's break them open and find out.

Whoops! There isn't anything inside of them.

Give your friend or family member a ceramic White Rabbit bag filled with clippings from your yard.

I'd rather have the White Rabbit Candy Dish, filled with Palmer Bunny Money and Cadbury Mini Creme Eggs.

Yes, they make Easter ornaments! These Radko collectibles were created in honor of the Fiftieth Anniversary of Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

These were not made specifically for Easter. They'll look nice on a Christmas Tree, or a Halloween Tree, or even a Fourth of July Tree.

I'm not sure if the White Rabbit could be trusted to deliver eggs on time.

Even with the new watches, he'd probably be late.

How do you get to Wonderland? The best way is to go to Disneyland in California and head to Fantasyland. There, you'll find the Alice in Wonderland dark ride.

Board a Caterpillar ride vehicle and take an animated trip on an attraction you'll only find at Disneyland in California.

In Walt Disney Comics Digest Number 53 from Whitman, readers can help Alice avoid the crazies to get to the other crazies at the Mad Tea Party.

Visitors to Disneyland Paris in France can find a trickier maze called Alice's Curious Labyrinth in Fantasyland (it's exclusive to the French park---oooh la la!).

Alice in Wonderland theme park attractions feature three dimensional figures of the characters. They don't really look like these Harmony Kingdom Box figures, but they are cool.

The Cheshire Cat one is my favorite.

In 1999, The Disney Gallery stores had some fancy Alice kitchenware.

I bet these were made to be seen, and not used.

The Alice in Wonderland Chess Set, available as part of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Disney Alice film, is one of the most interesting collectibles I've ever seen. The characters look like a mix of the John Tenniel illustrations from Lewis Carroll's book and the Disney versions of the characters.

I would love to see an animated (maybe CGI) Alice in Wonderland project featuring these character designs.

Happy Easter!


  1. Happy Belated Easter, Dan!

    I like that "Harmony Kingdom Box" in the shape of the Alice ride vehicle!

  2. Thanks, TokyoMagic! On Easter night, I finally saw Tron: Legacy with some friends (I still haven't seen the original Tron). I think the movie looked cool, and I liked the premise and the music, but I would have enjoyed it more if had a bit more humor. It is based on a 1980s video game franchise, after all. Still, a fun movie, and it would be great to see a Tron ride in Tomorrowland!

    Yes, the Alice ride vehicle Harmony Kingdom Box is quite nice. I wonder if any other Disney park will ever get a similar Alice ride.

  3. I'm kind of surprised the Oriental Land Co. hasn't requested one for Tokyo DL. The Alice characters are very popular there. I do like Paris DL's maze, but I still think it should have been a "ride-through" attraction.

  4. TokyoMagic!: Yes, it's very curious that the Alice ride hasn't been duplicated. It seems to be pretty popular at Disneyland. Maybe the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall at Tokyo Disneyland was a compromise, due to lack of room and the need of a restaurant since their Small World restaurant closed to make way for Pooh's Hunny Hunt attraction. I guess maybe the Labyrinth at Disneyland Paris was created to give France something a bit different.

    A new Alice ride experience would be nice. They could make it interactive. The Cheshire Cat could give everyone in the ride vehicles a grin like his at the end, using the technology now seen in the Hitchhiking Ghosts mirror at Walt Disney World's Haunted Mansion.

  5. That's a good idea, Dan. They could also use the TDL Pooh ride technology and have you riding around in giant tea cups a la the Mad Tea Party.

  6. TokyoMagic!: That sounds like a winner. I wonder if that trackless TDL Pooh ride system will ever find its way to the United States (hopefully so)!
