The Walt Disney World Speedway was a racing facility located on Walt Disney World property, just inside the Magic Kingdom parking gates. Built in 1995 for the Indy 200, the track was primarily used for the Richard Petty Driving Experience. Designed by Indianapolis Motor Speedway chief engineer Kevin Forbes, the track was a traditional tri-oval.

In March 2015 it was announced that the track would be closing less than 3 months later. It closed August 9, 2015, with demolition beginning just a couple weeks later.
