Curiouser and Curiouser: Alice’s Labyrinth

2 Sep

When we first visited Disneyland Paris in 2005, I would not have imagined how enchanted my then-8-year-old son would be with Alice’s Curious Labyrinth. Somehow though, this simple attraction is an absolute must-do for us now, which we wandered through twice on our recent trip.

It’s very simple really: A hedge maze sprinkled with characters from Alice in Wonderland, finishing up at the castle of the Queen of Hearts. There are a few water features (watch out!), several characters that pop up from out of sight, and a small Queen of Hearts Castle.

(All pictures below are sized down for your convenience, and linked to larger versions with far more pixels than you’re ever likely to need. Ditto was true for my opening trip report yesterday.)

He's late, he's late!

He's late, he's late!

I never know which way to turn

Honk!

Much like a scene from a sidewalk cafe in the 1st district of Paris, actually

Time for the caucus race! This section of the labyrinth comes shortly after water fountains that'll soak you if you're not careful or lucky (hence, I kept my camera covered there)

Every caucus must have a leader, n'est-ce pas?

She is always so cranky! This figure pops up at you (slowly), yelling in French

We're almost there....

Give my regards to the Dormouse on your way out!
