Large “Alice” section in the Tokyo Disneyland parade “Dreaming Up!”

Postby Cheshire Dodo » Wed Sep 05, 2018 7:37 pm

Tokyo Disneyland’s 35th Anniversary Parade "Dreaming Up!" has a large ‘Alice in Wonderland’ section.

The characters present are:
Alice (I didn’t know she could speak Japanese…) DIS:-)
The Cheshire Cat
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Characters from the various encounters in Tulgey Wood
The White Rabbit
The March Hare
Mad Hatter
The Queen AND the King of Hearts
and Flamingos (the dancers around the Queen of Hearts)

And at the start it looks like Goofy has defected to Wonderland! Check what he’s standing in!

Oh, that looks nice! I love that they included so many Tulgey Wood characters. Alice acts like she's on steroids though. :-P

Alice in Wonderland seems very popular in Japan. There are FIVE Alice themed restaurants in Tokyo...

...and a dedicated AiW shop, Alice On Wednesday, which also seems to have branches in Fukuoka, Nagoya and Osaka

Alice’s popularity in Japan could explain Goofy’s “defection” to Wonderland.

The broomstick / Wonderland float Goofy was on, could have originally been intended to be used by the Mad Hatter. Instead it looks like he got put on top of a tea pot instead!

It's fun to see so many Tulgey Wood characters! And the broom looks like it's one of the brooms from the "Sorcerers Apprentice" portion of Fantasia! Clear proof that visiting Wonderland is much more fun than carrying water. :P
