The Alice in Wonderland dark ride is one of my favorite Fantasyland dark rides (though I honestly love 'em all); the sheer trippyness is unique, arguably just surpassing "Adventure Thru Inner Space" as one of the more surreal Disney attractions to ever be hatched.
There's a snooty caterpillar vehicle moving circuitously down the exterior ramp. We've been shrunkified! Hey, just like in "Inner Space". Coincidence? Anyway, that's why the plants and leaves look so enormous.
Here's another angle looking up at the Skyway, and at the mushroom ticket booth with the wonderful poster on top of it. Like the Storybook Land lighthouse ticket booth, the mushroom doesn't seem to have been used for long, though it remained as a purely decorative element.
I almost didn't include this picture, because it's kind of "blah", but then figured "What the heck". Those sure are some Mary Blair-ish leaves, by golly!
