    Autopia to close on October 2nd for about a month

    While not listed at Disneyland.com, Autopia will be closing for about 4 weeks after the park closes on Sunday to allow for work on the new Finding Nemo Sub Lagoon attraction. During this closure, expect to see some work done on Autopia, but the majority of the work will be to the Sub Lagoon which required the track to be closed for safety reasons.

    I'm glad you gave us this heads up. Autopia is the kids' favorite ride, and we're going tonight and probably Sunday, too. We'll make sure they get a couple of turns. Where did you get the information?

    interesting, wonder wy this wasn't on disneyland.com.

    Guess management doesn't think we care about Autopia.

    They should paint Autopia a new color scheme while it's closed - - The remnants of TL '98 need to go.

    My cast member reference guide says it closes Oct 2 and reopens Oct 23. That's only 3 weeks, not 4...

    ^ The track goes over the Sub track and on top of the sub show building.

    It would be interesting to see Autopia ultimately get a total refurb to be a bit more like the electric cars in Hong Kong.

    Those puppies stop on a dime (which is better than stopping on a puppy).

    Thank you for saying that!

    Might I suggest a nice bright yellow, white, and blue?
