Hope we get the little gift shop with the plant cuttings back in time for Behind the Seeds to resume.

We’ve done both the Epcot tour and the Fort Wilderness tours.

Going back & thinking about it, I’m almost positive that it started at 8, 1 hour to train and then 90 minutes to 2 hours for the tour…they wanted us off them by the time WS opened at 11 am…the problem was dodging guests going back to innovations…NO ONE paid any attention (and that was before the days of parking your face in your cell phone) I think the liability of an accident caused that tour to end.

I'll miss these by one day. OTOH, I already have plans for Savor the Savannah in AK several days earlier.

On our tour we got free samples.

Oooh, that is an early start but sure sounds fun. We love doing Segway tours!

That was the Wilderness Backtrail Adventure. Would be super boring now as it would go through the flat, empty area cleared as part of the cancelled DVC resort. That was a fun one though on the larger offroad tires.

Yes, that tour was still available up until Covid…this tour started at between 7 & 8 am…you “learned” indoors (I believe at innoventions) how to stop, start, steer, etc. then we rode as a group to WS before they opened to ride/tour throughout the countries…it was the most awesome tour AND we received a really neat limited edition pin upon the end of the tour. I couldn’t physically do it again, but I LOVE to see my girls try it…

We did a Segway tour in 2019. It was called something else... and the start/end was all in the Fort Wilderness area.

I’m still hoping they bring back the Backstage Magic tour…

Just don’t steal the cucumbers! Lol

If you like to grow veggies, it’s awesome! Even better during Christmas!

I never got an opportunity to do this and always wanted to...

We loved the Behind the Seeds tour also…it’s my second favorite tour with the old Around the World on a Segway being my all time fav…unfortunately it was stopped long ago…me thinks it was a liability issue…
