The Autopia is the only existing Tomorrowland attraction dating back to Opening Day,1955. When the cars first took to the road, they captured America’s fascination with the latest transportation innovation: the “freeway.” Over the years, the roadways and car styles have been periodically updated for this “automobile utopia,” but the fun is still the same.
