The Need For Speed

Thursday, April 15, 2010

One of the many highlights from my Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend was the opportunity to ride shotgun in a NASCAR-style stock car going 140 mph at The Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway. To say it was an awesome experience would be an understatement. It was thrilling, exhilarating and I actually felt very safe. I loved it so much I dipped into my pocket and bought the video of my ride so I could relive it over again, and … so I could take you along with me.

Something tells me I might regret this (I’m still counting how many times I said "wow," “awesome,” and “ooooohhhh”), but here’s the split-screen video of my Richard Petty Driving Experience:



Fun, right?

The princesses trade in their tiara's for shades and jumpsuits

Maybe next time I’ll take the wheel.

Disney paid for my travel accommodations, several meals, attractions and gifts during this trip, however they did not pay for this post or the video. My thoughts and opinions are all mine.

OMG. I'm so jealous! I love NASCAR anyway, but that would be so much fun! If we head to FL this fall, I want to do that. How fast did you go?

I am also very jealous. I want to drive one of those cars so badly.

Brave woman! To be honest, I think I'd have wet myself :)

Okay so I peed my pants when you said "let's not get technical." Then I peed again looking at your facial expressions! That was fun-nee! A must-do on my next trip to Disney!
