322 Disney and Alice in Wonderland

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 322, for Sunday 5th July 2020. If you want to listen, whilst reading these notes, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or any good podcast catching apps. Welcome to this week's show notes and we have one main topic - Alice in Wonderland.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, under his pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It was originally published in 1865 and has been translated into 97 different languages. From the book, there have been many film versions over the years - including an X rated version! And to find the link to that one and Star Wars - you will have to listen to the podcast!

The Disney version of the film was released in 1951 and even today, the characters are known and loved by many. This shows that they may be identifiable to modern society as well as well-crafted. We start our discussion by looking at the characters and where to find them in the Disney theme parks.

For many, character meals are the best places to guarantee meeting characters from this franchise and Disney has a few options from a children's party to breakfast or dinner. 
Michelle reminisced back to her first Disneyland Resort trip and shared about meeting the Mad Hatter and Alice at Goofy's Kitchen. 

Meanwhile, Jayne recalled meeting characters at 1900 Park Fair, where Alice took a shine to a then young Ethan. 
Then, we look at Alice in Wonderland in the parks, and there are the teacup rides, a dark ride, and mazes plus character meets.

Additionally, the Disneyland Hotel at Tokyo Disneyland has the most amazing themed hotel rooms to this franchise.
We then daydream a little about how else these characters could be more present in the parks.

What else would you like to see in the parks to enhance this franchise?
