Story: Dorothy, Toto and the characters of Oz get caught in another whirlwind that sweeps them off to Wonderland, where they meet Alice, White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and many more! It’s truly a mad adventure! And you thought the Wicked Witch of the West was bad? Now they face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts! At least Dorothy’s companions now have their brains, heart and courage! Dorothy, Alice and their friends join forces to defeat the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal and get everybody back home?
