I think I would have remembered this quote if it had been in
the book, so I think it must be a Disney invention.

The wonders of technology and the generosity of contributors are such
that it took me only a minute to check this. I went to the
Project Gutenberg site

, downloaded the complete text of Alice in Wonderland, and searched it
for the word "world". There are only a few occurrences and none of them
is anything like the sentence you mention.
