That Disney magic might’ve just run out…

Though Walt Disney World offers many rides and attractions to Guests at EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom, hardly any compare the legacy and reputation of the Tomorrowland Speedway in the Magic Kingdom. Found in Tomorrowland, of course, The Tomorrowland Speedway allows Guests of all ages to live out their dream of driving a “fast” car on an “intense” track at the Disney Park.

To get the obvious out of the way, the attraction is incredibly dated by today’s standards, but it still has some of that special Disney charm. Well, recently, that charm ran out, along with the air in one of the car’s tires.

As seen in the video, the back left wheel of a car got a flat tire while the Guest continued to drive on the Disney World Speedway in Tomorrowland. The Guest who posted the video said that this happened last week and everyone found it hilarious. They explained that once they got parked, four different Cast Members had to lift it off the tracks for maintenance. But hey, at least they had a great view of Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain though!

Drivers, Start Your Engines!

Take the wheel of a gas-powered car and strap yourself in for an exciting and scenic drive. As the checkered flag is waved, you’re off!

Accelerate around sharp bends and lush foliage. Spot iconic attractions visible from the roadway, and pick up the pace as you sprint to the finish line. Featuring a working gas pedal and steering wheel, your car can navigate up and down inclines and around turns.

It’s a nostalgic drive that will have you smiling for miles!

Designed for Smaller Racers

Racers who are at least 54 inches (137 cm) tall can drive their own gas-powered race car. Guests who are at least 32 inches (81 cm) tall may also drive their own cars as long as they are accompanied by someone who is at least 54 inches (137 cm) tall.
