My Alice in Wonderland collection - meeting Alice

That time I flew to LA to meet Alice in person, or at least the actress who was the  Disney Alice, Kathryn Beaumont.

She was super gracious and adorable when she met the fans.
It is little known that Disney would actually film real actors before starting the animation process.

Disneyland in California also has the only Alice "dark ride"...which is the coolest of them all (unbiased opinion, of course)

That is so cool, Nathalie that you've met her! I actually didn't know about real actresses posing as a model for Disney animated movies.

I also was not aware of the real actors part! I knew that movements of people were used but not the entire movie!
Loved the ride, so cool :)
