    "One of the great Disney movies of my childhood. The adaptation from the book was done very well. It should definitely be considered a Disney classic even though it is not a cartoon. "

    "Who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland. I grew up reading this book. I always wanted to be Alice and go on the adventures that she did. And now as an adult I got to relive the adventures of Alice in the movie theater. And I got to see Johnny Depp do such a great job as the Mad Hatter. Thanks to Walt Disney Pictures and Tim Burton for making this come alive on the movie screen. This movie kept me on the edge of my seat and is one of the best Disney movies right along with Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. "

    "This was a great book to turn into a movie. I am so glad that Disney did change it from the original story. In the original the step-sisters cut off parts of their feet to make the glass slipper fit. This was a wonderful story about someone being treated badly because they were not the person real child and how they over came that. By being fair and kind."
