Undated BW Set: Midget Autopia

In today’s double-shot Midget Autopia view, our young lassies are just getting into their vehicle. Although this group of photos is undated, I am guessing that they are probably 1959 to early 1960’s range.

In shot #2, the lassies are zipping around the scenic course. Today, it is hard to believe that at one time there were actually 3 Autopia tracks at Disneyland. Today, the thrill of driving a car at Disneyland suffices with 1 large track.

This previously posted photo best illustrates where the old Midget & Junior Autopia tracks used to exist in Fantasyland:

Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday! See more vintage & current Autopia photos at my regular website.

Midget Autopia photos are pretty rare, so any additions are welcome!

The color photo is so great, and you get a nice shot of the Fantasyland Viewliner station.

What a great color picture, just look how everything is so empty behind the park. Great post.

In both B&W pics, you can see a Cast Member doing maintenance on an Autopia car on it's side in the background. Thanks for sharing.
