Our Segway tour was scheduled for 9:00, but we arrived at Epcot around 8:30 and were allowed right in. The tours (at least the Segway tours) meet at guest relations, where you get nametags and sign waivers. Once your whole group arrives, the tour starts, and you head to Segway Central in Innoventions West. We watched a short video about Segways, learned a bit of safety information, and soon we were getting on the Segways! They were much easier to ride than I had thought! I was nervous because I'm rather clumsy, but the guides said I was a natural. It may have been because I'm so short, which means I have a lower center of gravity.
When we left Animal Kingdom Lodge, the only places open were Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney, but we decided to wait by a bus dropping people off from Animal Kingdom to see if he would take us back. Once everyone was off his bus, he closed the doors and exited the bus to talk to those of us outside. The first family he spoke to, he told to transfer at Downtown Disney. He then came to us, and I asked if we should do the same. He said that he'd hate for us to go all the way there to get to All Star Music, so he decided to drive us straight there! Pixie dust! It was soooo nice of the driver, and it was amazing not to have to transfer at stops so out of the way. It was the perfect end to an amazing trip!
Wednesday will bring you a regularly scheduled blog post, but I hope you enjoyed my trip report! I'll be returning to Walt Disney World in January for our birthdays, and I hope that trip will be as great as this one was!
