And here’s another one of those rides I haven’t ridden since forever! The good thing was that my friend Lyn was game, so we went on.
Alice is in one of the brighter pastel colored areas of the park. I know, brighter and pastel don’t really go together, but hey, I never claimed to be good at colors.
Theo's new favorite ride
I don’t know how often the wait is usually but we didn’t have to wait very long.
Wait time is...indecipherable in this picture
The Mad Hatter gives some jacked up directions, which pretty much exemplifies my own sense of direction.
I kept expecting this flower to burst into song
There are a number of switchbacks in the line
Lots of people
Now here’s the bummer part–Alice is under construction so a lot of the loading area is actually tarp. But the problem is that it’s been like that for.ev.er and seriously, some of it is held up by zip ties!
Is that a tarp? Yes it is.
Anyway, next you get into your Seriously Pissed Off Caterpillar car
I'd be kind of pissed off it I spent my life running on a track at Disneyland
Now, kind of the cool thing about Alice is that there are actually portions where you’re outside. And that’s a good place to be if the parade is passing by.
Now, the track is slower and doesn’t yank you around like some other dark rides, so I was able to get better pictures.
I AM AN AWESOME PHOTOGRAPHER!
Oh, another nice thing about Alice is that it’s not scary. Unless you take a smeared picture of the Queen of Hearts
OMG SHE'S GOING TO KILL ME!!!
After that you head back outside again for a leisurely couple of gentle back and forths
Awesome when it rains!
And you get to see the inside of The Secret Book
Not really a secret book
You head back in for some more stuff and then see the Cheshire Cat
Not even close to the drug trip that is Winnie the Pooh
And you’re all done!
I actually enjoyed Alice a lot more than I remembered enjoying it. We also took Theo on it and he was totally not scared, which is more than I can say for, well, Pinocchio. I still feel bad about that.
