Queen of Hearts - Page 1
In my opinion, the best example of Alice in Wonderland at Tokyo Disneyland in not a ride or a show, but the totally over-the-top Queen of Heart Banquet Hall.  It's themed beyond belief and totally warped.  Part of the Fantasyland renovation which started in 1997, included the Alice's Tea Party ride, and culminated in 2000 with Pooh's Hunny Hunt, Queen of Hearts set a standard which the rest of Fantasyland will be striving toward for years to come.

Before you proceed, a warning - Queen of Hearts may drive you mad... but it's a good kind of mad.

Quoting the building's lead designer, Eddie Sotto, the extremely effective forced perspective hedge maze roof was "the response to the problem of 'what do you put between the Haunted Mansion and Small World?'"
Good question... and a great answer.
