In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter. Beginning May 6, guests visiting Disney Parks will be able to catch a preview of scenes from the movie in sneak peeks planned for Disney California Adventure park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

At Disney California Adventure park, the preview of “Alice Through the Looking Glass” will be presented in 3D with special in-theater effects at the Sunset Showcase Theater (formerly Crown Jewel Theater). Guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will get to see this advance look at clips from the film, as part of the One Man’s Dream attraction.

Directed by James Bobin, who brings his own unique vision to the amazing world Tim Burton created on screen in 2010 with “Alice in Wonderland,” Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” is written by Linda Woolverton and reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sasha Baron Cohen, along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.

Plan to catch this 10-minute sneak peek of Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” before time runs out! It will be playing for a very limited time, May 6 – June 12, 2016. And you won’t want to be late for another very important date – May 27, 2016 – when “Alice Through the Looking Glass” drops into theaters in 3D!


  • Steve– The Frozen sing-along ended last week.

  • Huh. When did DCA stop showing the Frozen Sing-Along? (Makes sense, seeing how the musical will start playing this summer.)

    Oh, and add me to the list of Mad T Party fans who want to see it return!

  • So please PLEASE tell me this means that they will bring back Mad T Party to California Adventure at least during. It would make me and a whole lot of people so happy! If not Mad T Party (even though it makes the most sense) please tell me they are going to at least put some form of live music event there for the sake of us guests who’s favorite thing at Disneyland was the live music they used to provide at Mad T Party and Tomorrowland Terrace. All they need to do is give us one thing and it would really help. This summer seems so boring without that to look forward to. I have a Disney premium pass because of the live bands that used to play there. There are so many people who feel the exact same way, and it would make us so happy to have something to fill that void. Please Disney!

  • What about Muppet Vision? Can we hold hope that it will return at some point in the future?

    • Muppet*Vision 3D is not scheduled to return at this time.

  • While it is good to know that the Muppet Theater will get some use for the foreseeable future, I am getting tired of all of the short-term solutions for this venue.

    I am really hoping that the Walt Disney Imagineering has a plan for a whole new, long-term *permanent* attraction for this space. I would hate to think that this venue will only be used for short-term sneak peeks from now on.

  • wait so at DCA is it going in the old Muppet theater?
