Disneyland's long-lost Midget Autopia may roll again--in Missouri

The Walt Disney Hometown Museum in Marceline, Mo., is hoping to revive the vintage Disneyland attraction known as Midget Autopia, the first park ride ever moved to a non-Disney property. The museum plans a $500,000 Kickstarter campaign to bring back the 10-car ride that ran in Anaheim from 1957 until It’s a Small World displaced it in 1966. In a chapter known mostly to serious Disneyphiles and select Missourians, Walt Disney donated the ride to the town of Marceline, where Disney lived from ages 4 to 8. The town ran it for 11 years until growing costs forced its closure. Read more about Disneyland's 60th anniversary celebration Now, with the 50th anniversary of that...
