    Staying @POR+would like 2make reservation @Richard petty drive experience but only available time is @8am, do the busses run that early 2Richard petty? Would rather not have 2pay 4a taxi if possible but had heard that the shuttle doesn't operate until 8am.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I called the crew members at the Richard Petty Driving Experience on your behalf and they explained to me your transportation options. 

    Option #1:  If the Magic Kingdom opens at 8 am on the day of your scheduled experience, board a Magic Kingdom-bound bus at Disney's Port Orleans Resort by 7:00 am.  When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, ride a monorail or ferry boat over to the Ticket & Transportation Center.  Once you arrive at the Ticket & Transportation Center, walk toward the Lost & Found building.  Along the way you will find a bus stop for the Richard Petty Experience.  A shuttle stops there every 15 minutes (beginning at 7:30 am) to pick up guests.  This shuttle will take you exactly where you need to be.

    Option #2:  If the Magic Kingdom opens at 9 am on the day of your experience, speak with the Concierge or Guest Services desk at your home resort the day before your scheduled drive.  The crew member at the Richard Petty Experience noted that a shuttle service can be arranged to get you to their facility.

    Have fun!
