When Miley Cyrus finally becomes old enough to drive on Nov. 23, she will have already jumped behind the wheel – on the Autopia!

Actually, reports Entertainment Tonight, the Hannah Montana star will be celebrating her Sweet 16th birthday party Sunday, Oct. 5, with a special bash at California’s Disneyland, home of the Autopia, the Matterhorn and Space Mountain. As Cyrus says in a special video message on ETOnline.com, “I love roller coasters.”

There’s also going to be a special fireworks display during what Cyrus calls “one rockin’ night … totally awesome.” She’ll sing some songs, too.

The public is invited, as the event will benefit a good cause, Youth Service America, which helps improve the lives of people ages 5 to 25.

“There’s only one world,” says the birthday girl, “and we got to take care of it.”

Priced at $250, a limited number of tickets to Miley’s Sweet 16Share the Celebration will go on sale Saturday, Aug. 30, at 9 a.m. PT.
