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 Disneyland Autopia photos at my 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.
