  • Segway Tour of Epcot World Showcase - Review and Rating

    Looking for a unique way to experience Disney's Epcot World Showcase? The Around the World Segway Tour is the way to go! Bright and early last Tuesday, we arrived at Guest Relations to start our Segway tour. We were taken to the Segway area in Innoventions where we were trained to use the scooters and then set off for a World Showcase tour. Both the hour learning how to use the Segway and the hour on the tour were highly enjoyable.



    The following is information regarding the tour, information on how to sign up, and pictures from our tour. If you've been on the tour and would like to rate it, please do so above.
    • Duration: 2 hours
    • Cost: $85 per person (includes tax)*
    • Tours run 4 times daily, 7:45 am, 8:30 am, 9:00 am, and 9:30 am.
    • Guests must be at least 16 years old and weigh 250 lbs or less. The signature of a parent or legal guardian is required for participants under 18 years of age. Riders should be in good health and able to stand for the duration of the tour.
    Fishbulb, Savik101, and Dustysage set sail for adventure on the Segway tour of Epcot's World Showcase. World Showcase doesn't open until 10 am, so we had an amazing unobstructed tour without any other guests to block the pathways or views. It was well worth the price and loads of fun.


    First you learn the basics


    Then you learn to turn and manueuver


    You get to take breaks


    Look goofy in a helmet (they need ears)


    Learn a bit about the World Showcase countries


    It's all fun










    Along the way, you see some beautiful unobstructed sights





















    And here's a 2 minute video just for fun

    Ah, memories. We are sure to do this one again some day. And we all decided that we'd love to own Segway's of our very own, if they didn't cost over $5,000 each.

      Yeah, they were great. Dusty and I spent a good portion of time discussing how we could justify the expense of purchasing one. I came closest, since I have a nearly direct path to work (at 11 miles), but still the price point was not within reach for me. If only there were tax breaks.

      We got to ride the second generation Segways, with the tilt steering. It was such a kick to go through Italy's columns and through Morocco's streets.
      I was too tense on the Segway, and came away with sore knees. Other than that, I had a blast.
      Now, why did the Segway tour get a pin made for it, but Dive Quest only gets a Tee-Shirt? I'd like a pin myself, lasts longer than the Tee-Shirt.
      This line left blank in good taste.

        Reminds me. I need to take a picture of that pin and post it.

            I wish I had known you guys were doing this. It looks like it was a blast. It was on my want to do list before we left, I will have to move it up on the list and hope they still have the tour a few years from now.
