Tomorrowland Speedway

Description from PassPorter's Walt Disney World Guidebook:

Every kid wants a chance to drive, and when they’re tall enough they can at this popular attraction. Experienced drivers won’t be as thrilled. Guide rails, shock-absorbing bumpers, and a low top speed (7 mph maximum) make these gas powered “race cars” safe. Family members can cheer from an enclosed grandstand (the entrance is to the right). Shortest waits are early in the morning. Covered outdoor queue. Transfer from wheelchair to ride. 52”/132 cm height restriction to drive solo. Health warning. Adult supervision required. Allie’s KidTip: “Even if you’re tall enough, make sure your feet can touch the pedals before you drive.” Rumor: This attraction may become a 'TRON' roller coaster similar to the popular one at Shanghai Disneyland.

What PassPorter Readers Think of Tomorrowland Speedway (54 comments):

It's not a thrill for me but my kids enjoy it. My daughter's mouse ears flew off on it on our last trip. Luckily another rider with long arms scooped them up for her and returned them after the ride. This time she left the ears with me while she and her sister, brother and father rode.

The kids loved being allowed to drive.

Major boring. Back in the day, this ride was fun. But now there are too many more advance rides where kids drive cars. Needs to be revamped & modernized.
Pawleys4 gave this a rating of 2 on 06/27/2016 at 9:42:19 pm EDT

Have the rider close his eyes and the passenger navigate the track. It is so much fun. Did this with my 20 yo son and we laughed the entire ride. (and didn't crash once).

i find that the wheel is a little stiff making it hard to maneuver but the kids love it, i think it would be more enjoyable if the cars weren't on a guided track

Great fun!!
questkitten gave this a rating of 8 on 06/24/2016 at 3:16:16 pm EDT

The kids LOVE this ride. It's nice to enjoy the sun and let the breeze blow through your hair.
todncopper gave this a rating of 8 on 06/22/2016 at 4:25:41 pm EDT

My kids love driving the cars ! The line is usually long and the fumes from the cars can sometimes be overwhelming.
Dopey Girl gave this a rating of 4 on 06/20/2016 at 6:28:57 pm EDT

The whole family enjoys this ride. Long queue most visits.
aswaffer gave this a rating of 8 on 06/19/2016 at 12:26:21 pm EDT

My kids experienced this at ages 7 and 6. It was fun to see their expressions. This will probably go away some day ala 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for some high tech ride. That will be sad.
MissyMouse70 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/18/2016 at 9:12:32 pm EDT

Fun with the grandkids.
Papa Jim gave this a rating of 7 on 06/17/2016 at 2:52:20 pm EDT

Little kids flock to this so the queue is always very long. A word to the wise - if your child drives, beware whiplash. The track that keeps the cars on their given path gives you quite a jolt when the kiddos run into it (and they do constantly!).
Missi gave this a rating of 5 on 06/17/2016 at 1:00:30 pm EDT

Despite the fact that the line is slow-moving and the cars are unexciting, my kids always love this ride. It must be the thrill of being able to drive! I wish they would update the cars to something cool and futuristic looking since this attraction is in tomorrow land.
Fergies6 gave this a rating of 7 on 06/16/2016 at 11:15:05 pm EDT

Best with a fast pass :-) I rated it a little higher for nostalgia factor from my childhood.
MaryPoppinz gave this a rating of 6 on 06/16/2016 at 10:59:35 pm EDT

I love taking the kids on this, reminds me of when my dad would take us on rides like this and let us drive
ashlvsq2004 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/15/2016 at 11:29:51 am EDT

Good for kids
gances gave this a rating of 5 on 06/15/2016 at 10:45:55 am EDT

I'm probably biased but I have fond memories of my dad taking me on this as a kid. Great for people who don't like coasters or aren't into Disney characters.
EvaKi gave this a rating of 6 on 06/14/2016 at 11:16:51 am EDT

The wait can be unreasonably long especially when the sun is beating down
eeyore01905 gave this a rating of 6 on 06/14/2016 at 10:33:08 am EDT

I learned how to drive in those cars. Maybe that's why I always hit the curb.
scott disney dad gave this a rating of 8 on 06/13/2016 at 10:24:50 pm EDT

No no no no no. The wait was much too long. There were too many cars on the track so you couldn't move forward too far. It killed a lot of prime park time. But at least we can say we did it at least once.
MPoppins77 gave this a rating of 1 on 06/13/2016 at 7:10:21 pm EDT

Fun ride but the lines are long and always in the hot sun.
Diane MM gave this a rating of 5 on 06/13/2016 at 6:47:44 pm EDT

Cars are small for adults and hard to control.
cbate717 gave this a rating of 3 on 06/13/2016 at 2:27:29 pm EDT

Fumes! But it's so fun for the kiddos that we are willing to suffer for a few minutes. :D
mommabelle gave this a rating of 4 on 06/12/2016 at 9:32:56 pm EDT

The worst part are the gas fumes...
jodistrock gave this a rating of 5 on 06/12/2016 at 9:51:16 am EDT

If you don't have a small child clamoring to get on, don't do it. Super slow, no steering capabilities and a time suck for your day.
loveariel gave this a rating of 2 on 06/10/2016 at 3:39:32 pm EDT

Fun when wait time is short.
MINNIEsota MOUSE gave this a rating of 7 on 06/10/2016 at 3:37:10 pm EDT

it's be nice if the steering wheel actually worked well
jstar gave this a rating of 3 on 06/10/2016 at 10:33:25 am EDT

Kids enjoy but it's loud and smelly. I dislike even passing by it.
ams4092 gave this a rating of 5 on 06/10/2016 at 6:41:42 am EDT

Not a great adult ride but lots of fun for the kids
Gingerk gave this a rating of 4 on 06/07/2016 at 12:02:55 pm EDT

Good for kids but there must be something that can be done about the steering, impossible to even go in a straight line.
Urbss gave this a rating of 7 on 06/05/2016 at 6:17:00 pm EDT

A fun experience for a child. Kids think they're really driving on their own. Only if we are with young guests, do we consider this attraction.
Joycec gave this a rating of 4 on 06/04/2016 at 3:01:37 pm EDT

Relaxing and good for a few giggles with your driver.
oddboysmum gave this a rating of 5 on 06/04/2016 at 8:42:40 am EDT

Loud and smelly, but the kids love it.

Cute for kids.
amouse9 gave this a rating of 4 on 06/03/2016 at 1:31:58 am EDT

I had to give such a high rating because when my son was 4, he really believed he was driving. And that's what it's all about.
goofyboysmama gave this a rating of 8 on 05/30/2016 at 11:16:40 pm EDT

Long lines and strong exhaust smell. Younger kids like it
mom2three23 gave this a rating of 3 on 05/30/2016 at 9:43:42 pm EDT

As an adult, this is not a must-do for me. However, kids love getting to drive. The heat and the smell make this one to skip if you can, though.
mikeserin gave this a rating of 4 on 05/30/2016 at 6:49:06 pm EDT

In our last 5 visits we have avoided this ride - the smell of the exhaust and the super long lines are nauseating.
Disneyisourthing gave this a rating of 2 on 05/29/2016 at 6:23:47 pm EDT

Unavoidable if you have a small child, but not much fun for grownups. Noisy and hot.
Marie the Cat gave this a rating of 4 on 05/29/2016 at 5:45:20 pm EDT

Seems like the temperature is always 10 degrees hotter in the open queue and in the cars than elsewhere in the park
Victor gave this a rating of 4 on 05/28/2016 at 9:10:44 pm EDT

Lines tend to be long but my 8 year old loves to drive the car.
snickers gave this a rating of 5 on 05/28/2016 at 1:39:42 am EDT

My kids love this ride, but I find it frustratingly slow and I can't handle the smell of exhaust from the cars all around us.
englevich gave this a rating of 2 on 05/27/2016 at 8:59:50 pm EDT

Fun ride if the line isn't too long and you're not bothered by the exhaust.
KMB733 gave this a rating of 5 on 05/27/2016 at 6:59:09 pm EDT

needs a major refurb but fun for my grandson.
dmargliotti gave this a rating of 6 on 05/27/2016 at 10:30:13 am EDT

Most days, this is not worth the long lines.
Ms Minnie gave this a rating of 4 on 05/27/2016 at 9:57:22 am EDT

I would go back if I had the grandchildren with us. Lines are long and it is hot.

Family too big now to ride-small kids loved it
cutiepie gave this a rating of 4 on 05/27/2016 at 8:43:38 am EDT

The car exhaust is sometimes pretty strong, but the ride can be fun.
Ms. Earson gave this a rating of 5 on 05/27/2016 at 12:39:55 am EDT

Fun for young drivers. May be hard for small children to reach the pedal but an adult can easily reach over and help.
sherrymickey gave this a rating of 9 on 05/26/2016 at 11:52:29 pm EDT

My kids enjoyed this but they were a little disappointed at how slow the cars were.
