In our next installment of our Magic Kingdom Attraction Guides series, we continue our exploration of Fantasyland by taking a look at the Mad Tea Party. This attraction is a favorite of our daughter, as you can see in this photo from some years back! Here are the details on this attraction:
Attraction Name: Mad Tea Party
Attraction Type: Spinning Ride
Height Requirements: Any Height
Hours of Operation: All Day.
The Mad Tea Party is an original day attraction at the Magic Kingdom, opening on October 1, 1971, although the name was originally called The Mad Hatters Mad Tea Party, but the premise is the same. The ride is based on the Unbirthday party scene in Alice in Wonderland, and as I’m sure you know, the tea cups can spin based on the center wheel in each tea cup. In Disneyland, the attraction was an opening day attraction as well, but one bit of trivia is that the tea cups had no braking system for the first two years, so there was no stopping you from spinning as fast as you could, except, of course, your ability and strength to do so! Do you like the Mad Tea Cups? Let me know, and thanks! To conclude, have a look at this picture of Sophie and my wife Cindy on the attraction — a whole lot of joy, and that’s why kids love this attraction so much!
