Driving into Discovery

Disneyland Paris may have a very different Tomorrowland, in the shape of Discoveryland, but there is one attraction that guests will find very familiar.The Autopia ride can be found in Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, Magic Kingdom (in the form of Tomorrowland Indy Speedway), Tokyo Disneyland (Grand Circuit Raceway) and, of course, in Paris, as 'Autopia'.
A thoroughly popular attraction, if you fancy taking a ride on this futuristic, 1950's style, Grand Prix track, you are advised to get there early. The queues for this ride can get very long as the day goes by, as it is a long attraction and the loading can be quite slow.The theme here is far more retro-futuristic, trying very hard to fit into the Jules Verne-theming of the rest of Discoveryland. It is a great chance for children to try their hand at driving a real car! Although it may be more appealing to younger children (under the age of 10, perhaps) it is a fun, family attraction and can bring back memories to those older guests who may have enjoyed this attraction at a younger age.

Autopia is sponsored by Ford, and it is 'On Route to the Future'!
