    Same here. It's been back for over a week now. I'm very happy to see it back.

    besides the fact that it's back... I'm pretty sure that disney has had those kinds of things for a long time. I can't recall the tea cup in particular... in fact it's not even in my memory but I have photos of me as a little girl (like 5 or so) sitting in the cars from the fantasyland autopia. in fact thats the only way I remember there even being 2 sides.

    Thank you for posting and the pic. That seemed like such BS to remove it permanently.

    I was going to say, it's probably just out for some TLC. Everything needs a little love every now and then.

    I know they were brought in for the 50th, I think there was even a Peter Pan ride vehicle at one point too. Seems like only a few have stayed.

    They were put in in 2005 or 2006. Originally they were gold for the 50th, but since then have been repainted back to the original colors.

    EDIT: Here is a link with some photos of the "gold" ride vehicles back from '05 or '06:

    Not sure about the tea cup specifically, but I know these photo ops have been around for quite a while, long before the 50th.

    I remember getting photos in the Dumbo vehicle when I was maybe 5 or 6 (so that would have been in 1996 or 1997). I got a photo in an Autopia car near the exit when it reopened from its refurbishment in 2000. The Autopia car was located in what is now Nemo's queue. They even had an option where you could have a Disney photographer take your picture and then purchase it like you can do with character photos, but they did allow you to take photos with your own camera as well.

    So while it's true that there were gold ride vehicles for the 50th, and some of these have been removed, I just wanted to let you know that these types of photo ops aren't all that new!

    As much negativity there is for TDA and their decisions (a lot of it warranted), I do gotta say that's pretty darn impressive that they would go so far as to weld in fencing and cover up the void with grass / sod, so that nothing appears to be amiss..

    Re: What happened to the teacup outside of Mad Hatters? :(

    I was reading the Disney Parks Blog today and I think I may have discovered what really happened to the cup while it was gone. It wasn't just routine maintenance, they shipped it off to the Wheel of Fortune set!

    Apparently it's "Disney Memories Week" on Wheel of Fortune, and Disney loaned them some park objects to decorate the set, the DL photo op teacup being one of them. You can see it in pictures on the Blog post.

    Re: What happened to the teacup outside of Mad Hatters? :(

    When I was at Disneyland on the 23rd for my birthday it was there. Infact Mad Hatter himself was sitting in it with some kids taking pictures in the cup. I wanted to do it as well but he was in a hurry to get some tea so he took me standing up.
