Which word is correct?
Some children believed that they (could / would) go to Wonderland if they fell down a hole after a white rabbit.

Either is correct, depending on what you're trying to say. Each has a slightly different meaning. "Could" suggests there is a possibility they'd go to Wonderland, either by choice or chance. "Would" suggests that there is a certainty of going to Wonderland.

Could is best because would implies a decision of whether or not to go, whereas could underscores the possibility of going.
