    Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour is a Sega Dreamcast racing game featuring Disney characters.

    Gameplay

    As the name implies Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour is a racing game with courses loosely based on attractions at Walt Disney World (as it stood in 1999/2000).

    Characters

    While the mascots of Walt Disney World include the likes of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, Magical Racing Tour prides itself in having "original Disney characters", with most of the cast being designed specfically for this game. The major exceptions are Chip and Dale (in their Rescue Rangers attire) and the unlockable Jiminy Cricket from the 1940 Disney film Pinocchio (who doubles up as the narrator).

    Tracks

    Tracks in Magical Racing Tour are based on attractions from Walt Disney World parks, many of which were originally designed for the original Disneyland. Most of the attractions chosen are those which are not tied to Disney films.

    At the time of release, the park now known as Disney's Hollywood Studios was called "Disney-MGM Studios" due to a licensing agreement with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Magical Racing Tour opts just to call the area "Disney Studios", with all MGM references removed.
