Richfield Oil Company sponsored this Disneyland attraction from 1955-1970. After that, Chevron sponsored Autopia from 2000 until 2012. Starting in 2016 Honda will begin sponsorship of the iconic ride where guests can get behind the wheel and go for a cruise on a windy road trip.
“Autopia has brought joy to generations of families and has created lasting memories for millions of Disneyland guests,” said Takuji Yamada, president & CEO of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Honda is proud to sponsor this iconic attraction and continue our alliance with Disneyland Resort.”
With their sponsorship, Autopia is going to get an updated look, as well as an updated storyline to morph it into a more modern experience for guests. While there are no official refurbishment dates mentioned, it appears the refurbishment will begin in the next few months and will continue for another few months.
“The updates to Autopia provide a perfect opportunity to showcase our long-standing relationship with Honda, and we look forward to sharing the attraction with our guests later this year,” said Michael Colglazier, president of the Disneyland Resort.
