Midget Autopia | Disneyland Description

Midget Autopia was an attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, that opened in 1957. It was a miniature version of the park’s popular Autopia attraction, which featured small gas-powered cars that guests could drive themselves around a track. Midget Autopia, however, was designed specifically for younger children and was located in Fantasyland.

The cars on Midget Autopia were about half the size of the cars on Autopia, and the track was also smaller, allowing younger children to easily maneuver the vehicles. The ride featured a variety of colorful scenes and decorations, such as miniature houses and gardens, that guests could drive through.

Midget Autopia was a popular attraction in its early years, but it faced a number of operational issues and was eventually closed in 1966. Some of the cars were transferred to the Autopia attraction, while others were sold or donated to museums. Today, there are few remnants of Midget Autopia at Disneyland, but it remains a beloved part of the park’s history and a nostalgic memory for many who visited it during its brief run.
