TPE: The OTHER Autopias!
Today at Disneyland, there is one Autopia. However, back in the day, it almost seemed like there were Autopias EVERYWHERE! There was the Tomorrowland Autopia, The Fantasyland Autopia/Junior Autopia (1956—1999), and finally...the politically incorrect Midget Autopia (April 23, 1957 to 1966)! I would definitely want to see first-hand each and every one of these alternative Autopias.
Here you can see both Fantasyland and Midget Autopia tracks, as well as The Viewliner:

Note that the Omnibus once traveled into Tomorrowland/Fantasyland:
And the Midget Autopia:
My favorite part of this attraction is seeing the gleeful abandon on the faces of these little tots. It is so refreshing. Kids need more of that today.
