    That's so cool about Richard Petty Raceway! I have to confess that I was a bit worried that it would be limited to American and Japanese cars, as I know that they're more popular on your side of the pond, but good to see something I'd be keen to drive.

    So excited to hear that there may be some new live shows in the works for DHS! Love the idea of something Tangled, and while I'm not a huge Phineas fan... would be nice to know something fresh was going into that theater. (I'm silently hoping for something Muppets... hey, a girl can dream.)
