Jeff Gordon and Ella's Magic Carpet Ride

02/11/2009 at 09:00 AM ET

Looks like mom and dad might be enjoying Disney more than little Ella Sofia! Four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and three-time Daytona 500 winner Jeff Gordon and wife Ingrid took their 19-month-old daughter for a spin on the Magic Carpets of Aladdin attraction at the Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. on Monday, but the toddler didn’t know what to think! On his website, Jeff shares that Ella had a good time after all. He said,

“I keep asking her ‘Are you having fun?’ and she keeps shaking her head yes. In the car on the way here, she wouldn’t stop talking and saying all kind of noises, and she was excited as can be, because she knew we were doing something we don’t normally do. I know she’s having a lot of fun.”

What a cute pic. Jeff said, he kept asking Ella if she was having fun and she shook her head, yes. I love that Jeff & Ingrid keep sharing their photos of Ella at his website.
