♠ ALICE TURNS REALLY BIG OR SMALL . . . ♠ Alice is sitting by the river bank with her older sister. Suddenly, she notices a white rabbit complaining about his lateness and running away. She becomes very interested and she follows the rabbit. She falls into the rabbit’s hole as she gets to a long hallway that is lined with doors, but all of them are locked. Alice finds a key on a table, but it is too small for any of the locks. Then, Alice discovers a hidden tiny door. The key works, but the door is too small for her.
Alice goes back to the table, where a little bottle has appeared. The label on the bottle says "DRINK ME," and Alice drinks it all. She turns into a size small enough for the door, but she soon realizes that she forgot the key on the table.
She begins to cry but she then finds a piece of cake, on which is a little slip of paper that says "EAT ME." Alice eats and she finds herself growing larger. Now, getting through the door will be more difficult than ever, and Alice begins to cry again.
♫ CELEBRATING AN UNBIRTHDAY . . . ♫ Alice stumbles upon the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Dormouse having an unbirthday party and singing "The Unbirthday Song". Alice at first doesn't realize what an unbirthday is; when the Mad Hatter explains it to her, she realizes it is her unbirthday as well, and receives an unbirthday cake from the Mad Hatter.
♥ THE QUEEN'S CROQUET GAME . . . ♥ Alice enters the garden and meets three gardeners (in the shape of playing cards). The gardeners are painting the white roses on the rose trees red, because they have planted white rose trees by mistake and must paint them red before the Queen of Hearts finds out. Just then, the Queen arrives and after discovering what the gardeners were doing, she orders their decapitation.
Alice saves the gardeners going off with the Queen to play croquet. When she arrives at the croquet match, Alice has a difficult time trying to understand the curious version of croquet played by the Queen. The croquet ground is ridged, the various playing cards stand on all fours to form the arches that the balls are hit through.
♣ SHE FALLS . . . ♣ She seems to fall quite slowly in the rabbit’s hole, having time to observe the things around her. There are shelves and maps and pictures hung on the walls; at one point, she picks up a jar of orange marmalade and puts it back into place on another shelf. She seems to fall for an interminable amount of time, and begins to worry that she might fall straight through to the other side of the earth.
Although she has no one to talk to, she practices some of the facts she learned in school: she knows the distance from one end of the earth to the other, and she says some of the grand words she has heard in her lessons. She worries about missing her cat, Dinah, at dinner.
♡ A MAD TEA PARTY . . . ♡ Alice comes across the Mad Hatter and the March Hare taking tea. They tell Alice that there is no room for her at the table, but Alice sits anyway. The March Hare offers Alice wine, but there is none. Alice tells the March Hare that his conduct is uncivil, and he said that it was uncivil of her to sit down without being invited. After their argument, the tea party sits in silence until the Mad Hatter asks the March Hare the time. When he discovers that the March Hare’s watch is broken, the Mad Hatter becomes angry.
Alice gives up on the riddle and becomes angry with the Mad Hatter when she discovers that he doesn’t know the time. The Mad Hatter explains that Time is a “him,” not an “it” and it starts a long conversation. Feeling bored, the March Hare states that he would like to hear a story, so they wake up the Dormouse. The Dormouse tells a story about three sisters. Confused by the story, Alice asks so many questions that the Dormouse becomes insulted. The Mad Hatter insults her and goes away.
♤ THE POOL OF TEARS . . . ♤ Suddenly, Alice realizes that the cause of herself getting larger is the fan that she is holding, which she immediately drops away. She is now the right size for the door to the garden, but she has left the key, once again, on the glass table. She soon falls into a vast body of salt water. It is the pool of tears that she cried when she was a giant.
She sees a mouse swimming through the little sea, and tries to talk to him, but she unintentionally offends the creature by talking about her cat. The mouse seems to be swimming away, but when Alice apologizes, the mouse swims back and tells her to swim to shore with him. They keep swimming, and Alice finds herself at a curious party of animals who have fallen in the water: a Duck, a Dodo, a Lory, an Eaglet, and a few other animals.
