The location is right outside the Disneyworld entrance. Then follow the signs. We had the 8:00 am run and that was a little early for us since we had to show up 15-30 mins before our appointment. The wait time and suiting up was much longer than the actual track time. My son loved his birthday gift! You will also... More

If you ever dreamed of driving a race car, or skilled in what you may think fast driving is.... this experience is for you. You actually are given a choice of race cars and solo operate this around a race course as fast as you possible can. You are living the experience, and actually seeing how all that brag and... More

I bought my 19 yr old son a 3 lap ride along. I had a 20% off coupon from Birnbaum's Walt Disney World Book. You go in, you put on your racing suit then go out to the track to wait for your helmet to be fitted. Make sure you ask them if they are taking a video. They don't... More

Our kids have been spoiled with many trips to Disney World so we were looking for something new to try. This was a great choice! 8 yo daughter did the Junior Ride Along and 14 yo son did the regular Ride Along. Daughter was first and really nervous, but she emerged from the ride grinning from ear to ear. Son... More

I had a great time at my recent trip to the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World in Orlando. I went on my own and found the staff to be extremely friendly. From the introduction to safety demonstration it's a very well run operation. Getting some key words from the King (Richard Petty) helped build the anticipation towards... More

Fantastic experience, let the revhead out. I did the 8 laps and like other reviews it was pretty positive experience, very helpful staff with lots of experience for the rookie driver. Not overly expensive, prepare for an adrenalin rush as you do get to go pretty fast. Smells like the real thing, sounds like the real thing, and handles like... More
