DDW Pic 512. Walt Disney World Speedway
Walt Disney World Speedway
On this day in 1995, plans for the Walt Disney World Speedway were announced. Construction began later that year. This location, right next to the Magic Kingdom parking lot, is home to several different driving experiences that guests can take part in. You can drive or ride in cars from Nascar, Indy, and even exotics such as Ferrari and Porsche. I had the opportunity to do a Nascar "ride" back in April of 2010. We hit speeds in the 150 mph range and it was quite a thrill. After the experience, I shot this picture of our little man sitting atop the M&M car that was in the shop.
