The combination of the asphalt and exhaust fumes and heat makes this one of the worst locations for a castmember and our children?

If the Tesla product fails I suggest they approach JEEP and build the JEEP CAMP EXPERIENCE on property. In recent years this traveling CAMP JEEP appeared in certain cities to give free product samples and a chance to drive in new model JEEPS on different samples of terrain.It was a lot of fun and something different to look forward too. Plus I love JEEP....
This would be awesome! My 2 favorite things, Jeep and Disney!

Please let this be true! I feel like such a horrible mother for exposing my children to the fumes that come from the Tomorrowland Speedway. Those things are way overdue for an eco-friendly upgrade!

None of you have been to New York City?? Disney is nothing compared to that.

I've spent lots of time in NYC. I'd rather have my kids with me there than in the line for Tomorrowland Speedway.

Great idea, I hope it works out. Maybe they will put in some super chargers at the car center off of world drive, at least they did just open one in Celebration

Driving a Tesla down world drive on auto pilot running along side the monorail is a bit of a surreal experience. I feel like it is the best ride at Disney and I don't need a FP .

Would be awesome. Kids and I hate the speedway. Kids can't seem to control the cars, and just swerve back and forth the whole time....maybe I do too, but anyway, it's never worth the wait. Kids did it last year, and said they've had enough of that
any alternative would be great!

It would be an incredible marketing opportunity if Tesla had an autopilot button on the carts to keep them from smashing the rails and other vehicles. That takes away some of the fun but if it could be turned on and off then that could show off some of the technology without you having to drive massive distances for a test drive or buy one sight unseen.

Been suggesting this for year, but with Honda. Tesla makes for a better fit. DL would use the emissions credits for more fireworks.

Tesla could use the positive publicity.
