    I just booked the Epcot Around the World Tour! I can't wait to try out my Segway! I called for 9/27, a Saturday, and they had all the times still available! :207:

    Yes. I believe you have to be sixteen, and I'm not positive, but I think there are weight restrictions too. :unsure:

    You'll have a fab time Rosie :p015:
    We did a driving tour at the beginning of the year and did a 4 hour Segway tour of Sarasota. The Segways are brilliant fun and so easy to get the hang of once you relax....they sort of read your mind!
