Daytona 500 Racing Champion Austin Dillon Surprises a Fan at Walt Disney World Resort

Austin Dillon is the defending Daytona 500 Champion.  He made an appearance at Magic Kingdom Park where he surprised one of his young fans for an unforgettable moment.  Jordan Wade got to have the best time with Austin.  The two first met last year right before the Daytona 500 and Austin gave Jordan an autographed hat.  Jordan gave Austin a lucky penny, which must have been pretty lucky since Austin won the Daytona 500 a few days later!  To thank Jordan for being such a great fan, Austin thanked him with a trip to Walt Disney World Resort.  Jordan got an amazing surprise and got to meet with Mickey Mouse and take a photo with the Daytona 500 trophy.  That is when he learned that Austin was also there and presented him with a Daytona 500 champion’s ring.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
