      Ah... nothing says "roughing it" like a hike through the woods on your Segway..

        Awesome!! In the winter months and early Spring, Fort Wilderness becomes practically a second home for us. We spend a lot of long weekends there with our RV, sometimes without ever leaving to go the parks. I also loved the Segway tour at Epcot that I took several years ago when it was just getting started. Hopefully the trial goes over well and I'll have something extra fun to do on my next visit.

          I can't wait to hear guest reviews of this tour as it does sound like it would be a lot of fun! If you get the chance to participate in it CTXRover, please let us know how it goes!

            If it were offered when I was there, I would so totally take this tour!

              Too bad this is only in Florida. It sounds like fun!!! I did get to ride a Segway once. It was weird but interesting. Easy to get the hang of it.

                Something just seems wrong about going through the wilderness on a Segway. And Monsters Inc doesn't belong in Tomorrowland????

                  I believe there is now a segway tour at DCA.


                  Anyone book Cruzin' Disney's California Adventure Park Tour? (Segway!)

                    I need to hook that up. Hopefully soon. I just don't quite know what to do with my dog for me being away from home that long.

                      I just wanted to say this is a WONDERFUL tour. I wasn't really wanting to do a Segway tour (but I had a poll on my own personal website, and that was the tour nearly everyone was interested in). When the FW tour came up, that is the one I chose to take.

                      It is - a lot of fun. I love Fort Wilderness anyway, but the tour guides were wonderful. The XT is a great Segway model, large tires and more sturdy (to me). I liked doing more off-roading, not just on pavement - and since it's almost July, the shady spots helped a lot! The tour guides kindly let me walk through their next class with my camera (as much as I could), which was good - I was able to get more action photos, since I couldn't get anything while actually moving myself! I spliced together like 55 photos from both classes (I even got a thumbs-up review from one of my instructors!). I really want this class to succeed, so I can take it again in the future! So book it, take it, enjoy it!
