    Hello! When my family and i visit in March we are going to be down in Disney for my anniversary. I was looking at the Richard Petty Driving Experience for my husband. I was just curious if anyone has done this before and is it really worth it? Thanks!

    Hi Pamela!

    The Richard Petty Driving Experience is awesome!  There are four different programs available.  The easiest and less expensive is the Drive Along, where you leave the driving to one of their professional drivers.  However, I recommend at least getting your husband the Rookie Experience.  With that, your husband will actually do the driving for 8 laps around the Walt Disney World speedway.  You can get more information on this at the independent website

    By the way, there is also a relatively new Indy Racing Experience at Walt Disney World.  With this, your husband could drive or ride in a car that was used in past Indianapolis 500 events.  He would ride in a customized 2-seat IndyCar Series car.  You can get more information about this at the independent website

    If your husband is into racing, I'm sure he would enjoy one of these!  Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
