1955 Walt Disney Signed Autopia License To Be Auctioned Starting at $10,000
It doesn’t get much better than this when it comes to Disney treasures. This 1955 Autopia Driver’s License signed by Walt Disney himself, is about to go up for auction, and the bidding starts at $10,000!
While the number is not surprising being that the collectible bears Walt’s personal signature, it’ll be interesting to see how high its selling price reaches! Let’s go back into Disney history and take a look at Autopia!
Disney invites Guests to “put the pedal to the metal on an unforgettable road trip along a miniature motorway!” Littles get the chance to live out their dreams aboard this attraction, by driving their very own car!
Did you know that Autopia is the only ride in Tomorrowland to be in existence since the park opened in 1955? Disneyland has offered many different versions of Autopia over the years.
When the ride first opened, America was fascinated with the latest in transportation. This attraction pays homage to the creation of the freeway!
If you’ve experienced Autopia, you’re already aware that Guests receive souvenir driver’s licenses at the attraction. From 1955 (Disneyland’s inaugural year) until 1970, Autopia was sponsored by The Richfield Oil Corporation.

This photo features the front and back of the license. On the front, it says, “Official Driver’s License for Richfield Autopia at Disneyland.”
Interestingly, it was filled out by a 10-year-old boy in 1955. Walt Disney signed his name on the back with a black, ballpoint pen.
