* AdaptationalVillainy: Since most of the fairytale characters are based on Disney's interpretation more than their original source material, this happens a lot, most obvious with [[GrandVizierJafar Jafar]].

* VictorianBritain: As usual, Alice is from this time period. However, [[WordOfGod according]] to [[http://tvline.com/2013/08/04/once-upon-a-time-in-wonderland-pilot-details-scheduling/ the producers]], this version is located in a separate universe and is a “land of story” removed from time (similar to Dr. Frankenstein's world from the parent show), thus handling the issue of ''Alice in Wonderland'' being a fictional story in its parent show. Demonstrated by the fact that the Rabbit and Knave travel from modern day Storybrooke to Alice's London ([[spoiler: and Alice, Cyrus and the Rabbit briefly return there]]) without actual TimeTravel.

** The parent show later uses the same concept by showing that [[OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella de Vil]] is from another parallel England that's stuck in TheRoaringTwenties.

* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: {{Justified}} since, according to the producers, Alice's Victorian London is a separate "land of story" that exists in our time rather than the actual historical Victorian London. This allows Jafar, played by an Indian actor, to pose as "Dr. Sheffield" without anyone batting an eyelash.
