New Official Segway Policy
As many people are aware, the Department of Justice came out, on September 15, 2010, with new final regulations related to the Americans With Disabilities Act. The posting in The Federal Register had six full pages discussing Segways (and that is a lot of small print). These rules take effect on March 15, 2011.
The following has been published on an official Walt Disney Company Web Site:
41 WDW Stays Totaling 321 nights between 1987 and mid-2003. (When "commuting" from Northern Virginia.)
Now Working Part Time at Walt Disney World! Currently at Everything Pop Merchandise after nine years in Guest Services/Ticket Sales.
A few very helpful links which are on DisBoards:

Thanks for the info!
I am going to make this a sticky so everyone can see it. I am glad Disney is being up front about this and making it clear for CMs! (and us)

Update Aug 31, 2012: Federal Appeal Court Upholds Ban
Article here details the story about the Aug 31, 2012 ruling:
Basically, the Federal Appeal Court upheld that Disney did not violate the ADA in banning the use of Segways in their parks. In fact, it found that Disney had done a safety assessment that used the safety considerations written in the ADA to determine Segways in the parks would not be safe.
This covers both WDW and Disneyland Park.
