How dizzy do you want to get on this classic spinning teacup ride? Grab the wheel in the middle of the cup and twist, turn and spin away. Want to avoid getting green? Don't twist the wheel, and try to keep your eyes focused on a fixed point inside the cup, to ignore the world whirling around you.

Anyone else hear a car crash? Oh, wait; that was just the breaks! - Mike Brilhart

We had a blast on the tea cups, even rode it two times. My son laughed the whole time while Grandpa went pale. When you see advertisement for the Tea cups they have always been out in the open and these were not. They were definitely old and not a lot of leg room for a family of 3-4. - Meg T.

Nothing more than a dated version of your usual spinning tea cup ride found at almost any other park. The Alice In Wonderland theming does not really lighten up the experience. On the other hand, Disney was one of the first to ever include this ride in its parks, so it might be considered as a classic. Beware there is a sudden loud and scary BANG when the ride comes to a stop. - Chris W.

My kids love it but I usually sit this one out. Your average spinner that can be found at most any carnival, fair, or other amusement park. - Don Neal

I liked the ride, though the duration was very short. I think the ride ran for about 1 minute last week when I visited Florida but for a Tea Cups ride I was happy - 5/10 - James Wimbury

Fun time not the best but fun - Manny Rodriguez

Not good for people who is not good with spinning! - Brendan Harrison

A great classic! - Sarah Durden

Good, but mostly has a long wait, go on during the after magic hours. - Arianna Griffel

I love anything Alice in Wonderland. I don't understand why many people want to keep upgrading things, the classics are great just as they are! Uncle Walt would have wanted to keep the classics, afterall he said that when the kids go the Disney World and then have families of their own, it's the classics they remember and then they bring their own children there to experience what they did as children. Besides it is just fun to sit in a giant tea cup. - Laura Milton

this ride is pretty weak. a simple spin ride. theres nothing wrong with that, but the seats are horrible! being 6ft tall, i barely squeezed in and out. the only one in my family who could get in and out with ease was my little cousin who is 5ft 3inch. the scenary is alright, i mean its outdoors, and the way you spin the cup is using a wheel, which is pretty tough to spin considering its for small children. i mean it wouldnt kill them to grease up the hinges to it wouldnt be so rough and tough. once you get the momentum going though its not to bad. its also pretty short. i wouldnt go on it if the wait time was over 10min. - damond harris
