Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I have been reading about the Richard Petty Driving Experience. Someone mentioned that there is a kids version. I haven't seen anything on it. Is it available?

- Hi Patricia!
Disney now offers the Richard Petty Driving Experience "Junior Ride Alongs" at the Walt Disney World Speedway. Children who are at least 48 inches tall and under 14 years old can ride in the passenger seat of a NASCAR race car for three laps while a professional driving instructor shows them the ropes.
This is a great experience for your little NASCAR fan! The experience doesn't require a reservation. Simply show up at the speedway and surprise your kids with the "ride" of a lifetime!
My husband did the Richard Petty Driving Experience and had a blast! Let me know if you have any other questions about it.
