Cruising Into The New Year
The Disneyland Utopia is one of the few attractions that has been around in one form or another since opening day. Last May I rode the refurbished attraction for the first time in seven years. Yikes!
Now sponsored by Honda, I was surprised that the vehicles were still gas-powered.
Wouldn't the change in sponsorship have been a great time to do something more futuristic with the vehicles?
Commentary over...here are my photos from that day's spin. My family from Austin, Texas, had a fantastic time taking a tour around the Tomorrowland track.
Route 55; I wonder how many guests at the Park know what this refers to? Regardless, I love touches like this.
A great tribute to the Midget Autopia:
Love the fountain here!
A tribute to the original Mr. Toad vehicles:
A closeup of the plaque; I doubt anyone is able to read this while zooming by!
A detailed view of the bridge plaque:
Time to bring the car home around the final turns:
My sister-in-law gave the peace sign; much better than the finger sign she gave while riding the Matterhorn!
Thumbs up from my brother and the rest of the clan:
Michael, our VIP Tour Guide Supreme!
My niece gets a shot of the stragglers still pulling into the gate:
C'mon...bring it on home!
One final shot before heading to the next attraction:
