September 28, 1996 – The Grand Prix Raceway Reopens as Tomorrowland Speedway
“Put the pedal to the metal in your very own hotrod and cruise along a scenic miniature motorway.”
On September 28, 1996, the Tomorrowland Speedway reopened with its new name in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. Originally known as the Grand Prix Raceway, this new name would only last for three years, until it was renamed as the Tomorrowland Indy Speedway in 1999; the name has since been changed back to Tomorrowland Speedway. The attraction was still the same, with guests able to race in a gas-powered racecar down the scenic motorway.
