  • [Question] Autopia's Future?

    Did I read somewhere that Disney is thinking of closing Autopia at Disneyland? If so...I will be very sad to see it go. I personally think it has a lot more charm than the similar ride, Tomorrowland Speedway, in Disney World's Magic Kingdom...

    The whole Tomorrowland back forty is ripe for redevelopment, but it's not gonna happen anytime soon. I think your Autopia is safe for another ten years at least.

      It sure is a possibility. Read up about it in Al Lutz column earlier today.

                  Autopia takes up a huge amount of room. As neat as the ride is, the space could be used for much better attractions- especially in a place like Tommorland.

                    I guess I do see how such a big space has great potential for newer attractions. But Autopia is close to my heart. Since I was young it was always a highlight to get my "license" and drive around on roads that look like miniature models of real highways! It's the kind of experience you don't find anywhere else, especially as a kid. Other theme parks wouldn't go so far as to give out licenses...As a kid I had been to parks that have similar car rides, but they were never as intriguing as Autopia was for me...probably because of the license! I felt legitimate! (Would even save the license and carry it around in a wallet like a grown up).
                    I will definitely try to enjoy it thoroughly for those 10 or so years it may have left!

                      I like the Autopia, but not enough to cry on its departure. It's sitting on some valuable land there.
