Mad Tea Party


October 1, 1971



Mad Tea Party is a spinning tea cup ride at the Magic Kingdom. The ride theme is inspired by the Unbirthday Party scene in Disney's Alice In Wonderland. The ride has gained infamy over the years for the number of guests who get motion sickness as a result of the spinning component to the ride.

On September 26, 2010, the ride closed for refurbishment. It reopened on November 12, 2010.
