    My boyfriend wants to do the Richard Petty Driving experience.Just the ride along which says you don't need reservations for. What would be a good time of day to head over there and how do you get there from ASMovies. Our trip is Nov30 - Dec8.

    Hi Rebecca, Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    I was fortunate to be able to try the Richard Petty Driving Experience- Rookie Experience this past February. It was, without a doubt, the thrill of a lifetime. The feeling of driving a NASCAR-style stock car at speeds of over 100 miles per's almost indescribable. If your boyfriend is up for it (and if your budget allows), I highly recommend that he get behind the wheel himself. See Here.

    However, if the Ride Along Experience is what he's looking for, then he'll definitely receive quite a thrill with that as well. I personally would head over in the morning, before the hottest time of day. That Florida sun can beat down, and just seems even more hot near a racetrack.

    To be honest, the easiest way to get to the Walt Disney World Speedway from All-Star Movies is to rent a cab. It would likely cost less than $20 and would save you a considerable amount of time. However, if you would like to use the on-site transportation instead, then you'll want to do the following: Take a bus to the Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Then get on the monorail and take that to the Transportation and Ticket Center. Once there, head over to the Kennel. The shuttle to the Richard Petty Driving Experience will pick you up there. It starts running about 30 minutes before the first ride of the day (so around 7:30am on most days). It comes every 20-25 minutes after that until 4:00pm.

    Hope this helps and that your boyfriend enjoys the Experience as much as I did. Have a wonderful vacation,
