He goes every year during Speedweeks with the family. There are usually several of the NASCAR drivers there with their families and are probably touring un-noticed because they don't need the VIP guides. Two years ago I was walking behind Casey Mears and his wife and baby and I was standing by JD Gibbs in the Germany pavilion in EPCOT.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

I would have answered him and said "it was about as fun as finishing 2nd to Danica in the Daytona 500 pole".

We saw him in 2009 coming out if crt. Ds is a huge 24 fan. So we waited for him to come out lol. He was so incredibly nice and took a pic with the kids. He didnt even mind my starstruck husband with the kyle busch hat lol.
I still have the pic on my fridge. It was ds dream come true
He had no one with him in 2009. We thought that was weird.... just him n his fam walkn around

HAHAHAHAHA!!!

In all seriousness, I would love it if I ran into a celebrity at Disney! I guess no matter how rich or famous you get, there's always room for some Disney magic.
