Wonderland is a one of the realms of the Fairytale World, joint-ruled by the Queen of Hearts and the White Queen. Its people are called the Wonderlandians and its official language is Riddlish, which non-Wonderlandians perceive as mad babbling. Travel between it and the other realms, particularly Ever After, happens by use of portals. Principally the portals are sealed these days, but one, the Well of Wonder, which changes locations every so often, is still active. It might be the well from which the wonder flows, where the Wonderland Grove was created.
For long, Wonderland has been a peaceful if mad realm, reigned over by the Queen of Hearts and the White Queen. The situation changed when the Evil Queen poisoned Wonderland, which is the act that landed her in prison. The poison affected many of the Wonderlandians, who started acting even weirder than usual, along with odd climate change. The most significant victim was the Queen of Hearts. Wonderland became uninhabitable and most of its population fled to the other realms. Following this, the portals to Wonderland were sealed, save for the Well of Wonder in order to keep Ever After flowing with magic.
Following the events of the Thronecoming celebration, Briar Beauty used that portal to get rid of the Storybook of Legends. The book and all its power ended up in the hands of Bunny Blanc and Alistair Wonderland, who aimed to return it to Ever After. Unbeknownst to them, the book was stolen from them by the Cheshire Cat.
During the Queen of Hearts's birthday celebration, Raven Queen signs the Storybook of Legends in order to defeat the scheming dethroner Courtly Jester. Using these powers, Raven lifted the curse on Wonderland and the barrier between the two worlds.
Briar Beauty drops the Storybook of Legends into the well, sending it to Wonderland.
Lizzie Hearts draws her inspiration for her Spring Fairest fashion designs from the Well of Wonder. In Wonderland, Alistair Wonderland and Bunny Blanc find the Storybook of Legends in the river produced by the overflow of wonder water from the well, and go through the well to Ever After to return the book to Ever After High. Ginger Breadhouse needs some of its Wonderland water for a recipe and she goes to collect some. When the well doesn't allow her to scoop up some water, she falls in and is transported to Wonderland. Apple White plugs up the well in her cursed state, and Ever After turns gray, dull, and magic-less without the trickle of madness from the well. It is later opened and Ever After is restored to its magical state.
Way Too Wonderland

Prior to realizing that the Storybook of Legends is out of her reach, she waits on the help of her friends. The five other girls arrive at Card Castle, albeit arriving a while after Kitty due to the White Rabbit's underground navigation skills.

The four other girls find Courtly in the present room and Raven vanquishes her by using the Storybook of Legends and getting full access on her inherited powers. As a form of gratitude, the Queen of Hearts invites them all to her birthday party and they dance the night away after Raven releases the curse on Wonderland, concluding that all is well.

A trademark for Cari Pillar exists, so she is a pseudo-confirmed character. Humphrey Dumpty should be a Wonderlandian based on Humpty Dumpty's appearance in Through the Looking-Glass, but the fiction has so far not established anything either way.
- Ever After High's Wonderland is named after the place from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but is not quite the same. That is, due to the fact it is also inhabited by the White Queen, a character from Through the Looking-Glass, Ever After High's Wonderland is a mixture of Wonderland and Looking-Glass Land.
