  • The Midget Autopia was an attraction in Fantasyland at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, allowing children too young to drive the larger cars of the Tomorrowland and Junior Autopias. The Midget Autopia closed in April 1966 to make way for a walkway to the soon-to-open "it's a small world" and was donated to Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline, Missouri, where it operated for several years in Walt Disney Municipal Park until cost and maintenance issues lead to its closure in 1977. The rails of the tracks have since been removed, though the concrete path and load area structure remain and one of the ride vehicles is now displayed in the Walt Disney Childhood Museum. Recently, the museum has started planning an effort to raise funds to rebuild the Midget Autopia in a new location next to the museum, with a Kickstarter beginning at the end of July 2015. At Disneyland, another of the old vehicles has been bronzed and is on display along the Autopia ride path.
