What to Expect: The Tomorrowland Speedway is themed like a race track and features more than 200 gas powered cars. Unlike a NASCAR race, the cars have a maximum speed of about seven miles per hour and there are guide rails that keep cars traveling in a straight line. The massive amount of exhaust leaving the cars makes the queue reek of gasoline and it is not shaded. The “race track” is about 2,000 feet long (4/10 of a mile) and takes about five minutes to complete.
When To Go: Before 10am, with two hours to close, or with FastPass+.
Expect to Wait: Because of its dismal capacity and decent popularity, wait times often peak in the 20 to 40 minute range from 11am – 7pm. Before 10am, waits of ten minutes are more common. Expect to wait a few minutes after the ride to unload.
Length: 5 minutes
Commentary: The queue for the Tomorrowland Speedway is brutal. Uncovered and excruciatingly long, it’s one of the most unpleasant experiences at Disney World. The ride itself doesn’t offer most adults much in the way of fun or entertainment either. Youngsters tend to love it though, especially those tall enough to drive. Skip it without a young child that would like to drive for the first time.
