“The design of the Junior Autopia sport cars is not likely to be out of style soon.”

On July 23, 1956, the attraction Junior Autopia opened in Disneyland’s Fantasyland. An adaptation of the Autopia attraction which opened in 1955, a block of wood was added to the gas pedal to allow younger guests to drive. A center guard rail was also added to this attraction. Junior Autopia closed in December of 1958, and reopened in 1959 as a part of the expanded Fantasyland Autopia.
