Epcot and Segway Tours – Day 10

We ate breakfast at IHOP, then headed to Epcot for our Segway tour.  We were both really looking forward to this.  I went to get a Fastpass for Test Track, then came back to meet for the tour.  We met at Guest Services, then headed to the training room.  We first watched a film on how to operate the Segway, then had some hands-on training.  We learning to get on, go forward, backward, maneuver around obstacles, and go up and down hills.  It was much easier than I expected, but I still wasn’t quite at ease as we went out the door into Future World and worked our way up to the World Showcase.  By the time I got the China, I felt like I’d been doing this forever.  On our way back to the training room, there was a little boy crying.  One of our trainer’s rode over to him and bent down to talk to him telling him he shouldn’t be crying in Epcot.  What a great thing for him to do!  It left a smile on the parent’s face—and mine.  This is what a good CM is all about!  What a great experience the Segway tour was!  Of course, we want one now.  We rode around the different countries, doing a few maneuvers along the way, then we had some free time to just ride around.  The whole experience lasted 2 hours and was well worth it.  We then went to ride Test Track, then to lunch at Le Cellier.  This is probably my very favorite restaurant and we try to eat here every trip.  We both had cheese soup, I had a filet and DH had a Strip, then we shared a crème brulee.  It was all as wonderful as always.  We then took the monorail over to Magic Kingdom, but it was packed!  The ride lines all had an hour wait, Fastpass was several hours away, so we rode the Tomorrowland Transit Authority, saw Mickey’s Philharmagic (wait said 20 minutes, turned out to be an hour), then headed out.  Just too many people!  We went to Walmart to buy a microwave (ours quit this morning), they were out, so we grabbed a Subway and went home.  I worked, DH slept.
