Description And Comments
Riders whirl feverishly in big teacups. Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter provides the theme. Teenagers like to lure adults onto the teacups, then turn the wheel in the middle (making the cup spin faster), until the adults are plastered against the sides and on the verge of throwing up. Unless your life's ambition is to be the test subject in a human centrifuge, don't even consider getting on this ride with anyone younger than age 21.
A reader we've dubbed Melba the Human Centrifuge advises:
If you want to spin your teacup, DO NOT try to put more than three people in one cup.
- This attraction offers FastPass+.
- Open for Morning Extra Magic Hour.
- Open for Evening Extra Magic Hours.
This ride, well done but not unique, is notoriously slow- loading. Ride the morning of your second day if your schedule is more relaxed.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Mad Tea Party when you visit on a day with a given Magic Kingdom Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Mad Tea Party Wait Times.
You can make the teacups spin faster by turning the wheel in the center of the cup. Beware if you are prone to motion sickness.
