We splurged on the Backstage Magic tour a few years ago and it was great! Even seeing the huge laundry facility was interesting. Worth the money.

I have been on both the Segway Around the World at Epcot and the Back Trails Segway tour at Fort Wilderness. Both are good but if I were to take one again I would jump at the chance to go Back Trails again!
