One of the most well-known NASCAR races will be taking place on February 17 at Daytona. Many of the NASCAR racers are in town in preparation for the race. Daytona is only about an hour or so from the Orlando area so naturally, many of the drivers recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.
Many of the drivers, such as Ryan Blaney, ventured to the “Happiest Place on Earth” on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, on their off day. Other drivers that were spotted at Walt Disney World Resort include Auston Dillon, Tyler Reddick, and Daniel Hemric. Austin Dillon is the reigning Daytona 500 champion. Tyler Reddick is the current NASCAR Xfinity series champion.
Ryan Blaney was able to visit all of the parks and even catch a glimpse of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. That was sure to excite the self-proclaimed “Star Wars” fan.
Per Blaney, “We did all the parks yesterday. We had a guy walking us around. I like that stuff. We saw the makings of ‘Star Wars’ Land. I can’t wait for that. We didn’t get to go there, but there is ‘Toy Story‘ Land now and one of the rides you can kind of see over the fence into ‘Star Wars’ Land, and it looks amazing. I wanted to jump over the fence. It opens in December of this year. I might stay down there next year. That would be a good offseason vacation. I will have to go back down.”
