May 12, 1956 – The First Main Street Horseless Carriage Operates in Disneyland
“Travel back in time during a breezy, one-way drive down Main Street, U.S.A in a charming turn-of-the-century vehicle.”
On May 12, 1956, the first Main Street Horseless Carriage began operating in Disneyland. The vehicles, designed by Imagineers to match the turn-of-the-century look of Main Street, take guests around Main Street all the way up to Sleeping Beauty Castle. The Horseless Carriages were also placed in Walt Disney World (starting operation on October 1, 1971), as well as Tokyo Disneyland (starting operation on April 15, 1983).
