        Around the World at Epcot on a Segway -- The tour, which lasts two hours, has been so popular that it now runs FOUR TIMES daily -- at 7:45, 8:30, 9 and 9:30 a.m. Check in 15 minutes before the scheduled tour time at the Guest Relations lobby inside the turnstiles.

        Challenge yourself "around the world" at Epcot where you will experience firsthand a Segway Personal Transporter. After completing a required product overview and training, you will be equipped with a helmet before you experience an outdoor ride on a set course through World Showcase.

        NOTE: Guests are able to arrive before the 9 a.m. opening in Future World by identifying themselves as being on the Around the World at Epcot Segway tour. There is a guest list at the turnstiles. Use the same queue the Princess Storybook breakfast (Norway) guests use.

        You will NOT be able to enter Epcot through the International Gateway for the 7:45am tour. You will need your own transportation to the front of Epcot and come in through Future World.

        The first hour of the tour teaches safety rules and allows you to practice riding the Segway, while the second hour is a tour around World Showcase before it officially opens to visitors.

        Cost for the tour is $95 (park admission is NOT included).

        You are required to wear the provided helmet.

        Some restrictions apply: Minimum age is 16 (guardian must sign a waiver for ages 16 and 17), the allowable weight for participants is 100-250 pounds, and expectant mothers and persons with special needs may not participate due to safety concerns.

        A 15 percent discount will be available for AAA and Disney Vacation Club members, as well as Annual Passholders, Disney VISA cardholders, and Disney Cast Members. A photo ID will be required at the time of the tour.

        To book this new tour, call (407) WDW-TOUR.

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): all
      Cons: none

      My daughter and I did this tour last week. I would recommend it. As annual passholders we got a 15% discount, which made it a better value (Wild Africa Trek was twice the price but not as good, in my opinion). Breakfast and a pin were nice additions. Lamonte, that's LamontE with an "E" was such a fun trainer. Take his 8:30 tour M-F. The info about World Showcase may not be new (particularly if you've done Backstage Magic) or read the numerous articles about Epcot on allears.net, but it was lots of fun to ride around the countries on a Segway.
