Mad Tea Party
Spin and spin and spin some more inside a giant teacup. Young kids love to get dizzy, so this ride draws them like a magnet. Turn the metal wheel at the center of your teacup to make it spin even faster. You’ll be as dizzy as the Mad Hatter. This is one ride that lasts a bit longer than you’d like. Sit this one out if you’re prone to dizziness. Adult supervision of children under 7. Must transfer from wheelchair to ride. Alex’s ToddlerTip: “I want to ride the ‘teacups’ again!” Alex’s KidTip: “Spin as fast as you can! If you get dizzy, look down at your seat.”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

My only complaint is that the lines are always too long.

My kids like this ride. I can't do it with all the spinning.

My kids love it but I can't take it anymore, too old! Lol

Love this attraction. It's a classic. Be careful if you get dizzy easily. Perfect spot for a photo-op, just have to be quick about it. If you get there early in the morning, you can ride it 3 or 4 times in a row. Just don't eat breakfast first!

Cute ride, I just can't take the spinning!

Make sure you look for the quote from Randy Pausch the author of "The Last Lecture ". It's on a plaque just outside of the ride. Inspirational.

I love the teacups. there is a lot of nostalgia there for my family. My dad would try to get it to go as fast as he could, we loved it when we were little. So now as a grown woman it is a challenge in my family to see how fast my sister, dad and I can get the ride to go! But I think the bigger challenge is to see how we fit three grown adults in one teacup... Cue clown music now

I personally can't enjoy this ride as too much spinning makes me nauseous, but I can see it's appeal

Not much different than a carnival ride, but its the teacups! So you have to ride 'em!

A don't miss for me...even at my age I try to spin as fast as I can. Can be a tight fit for multiple adults.

This ride definitely makes me feel sick & would ruin my day in the park.

Kids loved it, but it's not a ride for those who get dizzy easily.

Classic and fun but not for the weak stomached. Spin yourself silly in a teacup while whimsical music plays.

I enjoy this ride, but it has limited leg room for taller people
disneygal79 gave this a rating of 5 on 06/02/2016 at 11:20:21 pm EDT
My kids love it, but I have to turn around when the ride is in action or I become nauseated; not for the faint of heart!

My teens and adult child still ride this every time we are at Disney!

I've gotten prone to motion sickness as I've gotten older I guess. You can get some nice photos of your family if they ride.

Fun to spin or not spin. Tight quarters though.
sherrymickey gave this a rating of 10 on 05/26/2016 at 11:46:44 pm EDT
I enjoy it most when I just ride without touching the wheel and watch all the other guests spin.

I love it! My husband can't handle it-so I ride alone.
