Alice's Teacup Tuesday
In conjunction with today’s release of Disney’s 1951 "Alice in Wonderland" on Blu-ray (you won’t believe the transfer on this one; it is out of this world), I am celebrating with an All-Alice post today.
Although often dismissed in the critical and popular shuffle of Disney classics, "Alice" is the only animated film to have two attractions at Disneyland. Here is one of my fave shots of the Alice Dark Ride, circa 1950’s:

Phew...I am tired. That’s a lot of Alice! Hope you enjoyed—I’m going to go have some tea and un-birthday cake.
