Opinion Piece: Disneyland Urged to Expedite Electric Car Transition—No Time to Waste

Hurry up with the electric cars, Disneyland (Credits: Los Angeles Times)

The plan to transition Disneyland’s Autopia attraction in Anaheim from gas-powered vehicles to electric or hybrid cars focuses on addressing long-standing concerns about emissions and sustainability.

While Autopia in Anaheim is the primary subject, readers were curious about the plans for similar attractions in Florida and Paris. The lack of specific information regarding those counterparts is acknowledged.

The delay in transitioning Autopia to electric or hybrid vehicles is attributed to historical partnerships and sponsorship deals. Despite growing awareness of climate change and advancements in electric vehicle technology, past sponsorships with oil and gas companies like Richfield Oil and Chevron, followed by Honda, influenced the continuation of gas-powered vehicles.

Even when Honda became the sponsor in 2016, the overhaul of the attraction only involved replacing engines with cleaner versions, still emitting noxious fumes.

Highlighting the irony of Honda’s branding efforts within the attraction, featuring videos suggesting a commitment to a greener future while operating gas-powered vehicles, underscores the disconnect between messaging and action regarding sustainability.

While Disneyland plans to remove pure gasoline engines from Autopia in the next few years, the timeline and the specifics of whether the new cars will be all-electric or hybrids remain uncertain. The delay may be related to business considerations, including the end of sponsorship agreements.

Despite the forthcoming changes, some readers express a desire for Disney to accelerate its efforts toward sustainability, not only in its attractions but also in its broader storytelling and messaging. The suggestion is made that Disney could play a more proactive role in promoting clean energy and environmental stewardship, given its influence as a global storyteller.

Additionally, the article includes updates on various environmental and climate-related topics across the Western United States, such as water conservation efforts, renewable energy projects, and political developments related to environmental policies and regulations.
