(Disney spokesperson Marilyn) Waters said that many decisions on the attraction have yet to be made. She did say that some Disney characters would be added. At this point, she said, that does not include Mickey or Minnie Mouse.

"Alice in Wonderland” characters will be added, though, to the ride’s England area where a giant chessboard pattern and red rose trees are already included, both symbols of the “Alice” movie. Further, she said Alice and the White Rabbit will be based on a sketch of the two characters by Mary Blair, one of the original Small World artists.

“We are taking her creative approach and are being consistent with that,” Waters said.
