    Walt Disney World has cancelled it's Keep Moving Forward: See the World, Share the Dream Segway Tour at Epcot.

    Reports are indicating that Disney is contacting guests who have already scheduled their tours for cancellation. No reason has been given for the cancellation or whether this is a temporary change or a permanent one.

    I wonder why. Seemingly the tours were very popular. Is it a health and safety issue. or something else?

    You could always do a Segway tour outside of Disney - we did ours in Sarasota but they also do them in Celebration.

    Terry, Disney is still offering the segway tour over at Fort Wilderness.

    It's called the Wilderness Back Trail Adventure and you ride the X2 which is an all terrain segway, in a tour that lasts about two hours making stops along the way that include Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, the Tri-Circle-D Ranch, and Bay Lake.

    I will look for some more information for you if you are interested :D

    The Fort Wilderness one is great fun too. :yes: We did the EPCOT one and the Fort Wilderness one. :yes:

    The Celebration one is not so much a tour as it is simply riding on one around the area/lake. Not bad, but not the same.

    Who knows Mari, Disney obviously have a reason, but I think it's a silly move :sigh:
