    Has anyone done this tour before? If so, was it "worth" it? Thanx.

    Yes, and absolutely! We had a ball! I was a little nervous about getting on the Segway at first as I already have balance problems, but I mastered it pretty quickly. I made all the mistakes a person can make in learning how to control it (it really isn't that hard :D ) and the instructor was a very supportive and patient person.

    We want to do the one at FT. Wilderness now.

    We loved it! But I do have to say we just did the one at Ft Wilderness and enjoyed that much more! I felt kind of rushed through the world showcase. It was interesting but they seemed to take a lot more time instructing than actually moving in EPCOT.

    At Ft Wilderness it's about 15 mins of teaching and more than 1 hour of going. We went over to the Wilderness Lodge and over to the barn at the Ft. We saw deer and other animals too.

    Both were great but we were able to let loose a bit more at Ft Wilderness.

    Oh thanks for that Rosie!!! I just may book it for Herself's birthday.

    That's when we did the other one, and yes you are right, there was quite some time spent on instruction.

    Thanks, y'all! I may or may not go on Saturday, depending. I wanted to see Chubby Checker and visit the Flower Fest one last time. I was looking fo something new to do and thought it might be a good opportunity to do the tour.

    I booked it! Tomorrow morning at 9:30am I'll be learning how to ride a Segway! I'll let you all know how it goes. The reservationist said that the first hour is spent getting to know the Segway and the 2nd hour is actually doing the tour. It's too bad there's not just a 2hr. walking tour. Oh well. I'm PUMPED!
