The Autopia attraction at Disneyland invites you to “Put the pedal to the metal on an unforgettable road trip along a miniature motorway.” (Disneyland Website)
Autopia is an original Disneyland attraction from 1955 – a true Disney classic. This attraction is usually a core memory for young children as they can drive a car for the first time. After loading into the classic Autopia car you’ll drive on a track where you will see the glimpses of Tomorrowland, the monorail, and some fun details along the way.
Although many people may not have this as a favorite attraction, it’s worth the ride being that it is original to the park. It’s one of the moments you can experience something that was original to the park.
The Official Word
If you’re interested in the official spiel, here’s how Disney’s site describes the attraction:
Fire Up the Hot Rod
Cruise the scenic winding roads of this classic attraction in a souped-up coupe.
Pick up the pace as you rumble under a small bridge and see iconic attractions like the Matterhorn in the distance. Spot Honda’s Humanoid Robot and Bird along the road.
Featuring a working gas pedal and steering wheel, each classy chassis seats 2 adults or 3 children and navigates curves and inclines just like the real thing.Official Disneyland Website
I always loved going on Autopia growing up although the appeal of driving a car now that I have my license is most definitely lessened. I enjoy this attraction when someone else is driving and I can just take in the nice breeze.
