Our family was excited about this exotic car experience too when we saw the Disney Files story. Can't wait to hear all about it. I am disappointed to see the price range...I guess I didn't read the story thoroughly. I thought it was one price for any of the cars. Silly me!

What a great gift! Looking forward to hearing all about it. I did the same for my DH for our Anniversary, only here at home. The company that does it in WDW, also does the same in Las Vegas. Although we're using someone else here at home. DH is driving the Ferrari F430. He's got just under two weeks to wait and he's super excited.

The plus for me was I found a groupon for it and only paid $159 (plus ins of course)!

After hearing...can I drive the lamborghini and what do you mean I can't drive the lamborghini from them both, I have secretly upgraded their rides! I figured if I am going to spend all that money, why not do it right. Plus, I am sure it will be a long time before they do it again. I'm not going to tell them until we get there!! I can't wait to see their faces! Got to get a picture of that one!

If you have the stomach you could do the ride along. It's not my thing so I will be the photographer!

Awesome!

Which one is the big question! The LP 560-4 is nice, but the LP 570-4 Superleggera is the one to step into. If it were me, I'd take the 458 Italia; it's a classic ride. If it was between a 458 Italia and a 430 Scuderia, I'd need the magic 8-ball make the choice for me.

Does anyone know how FAST you get to drive the exotics? I couldn't find it on the website.

Please post about this when you come back. The family went out to dinner tonight and this topic of conversation came up. Not sure when he will be back at WDW next, but DS said this is a must!

The "exotic" cars don't run on the tri-oval. They run on two-thirds of it (two straights and one graceful curve, with a series of switch-backs to connect back. That will reduce the top speed, but it should be a fun time.

The cars can accelerate quick enough; just don't blow the big corner!
