Wilderness Back Trail Adventure

I'd certainly recommend this Segway tour. It starts from Fort Wilderness and you learn about the plants, trees and wildlife as well as visiting the horses at the Tri-Circle D ranch and going across to Wilderness Lodge - and it's a lot of fun along the way with very fun guides and even Disney trivia quizzes! (You can just see the Contemporary Resort and Space Mountain in the background).

Duck races

Most afternoons they have duck races for the kids - they line up and drop their ducks into Silver Creek Falls and the winner gets a small prize each time.

Oh, my gosh -- we love the duck races!! I have pictures from 7 years ago when my dh was the "duck dumper" and ds (age 8 at the time) was taking part in the race! What a great memory!

You know, this actually freaked my youngest DS out so much on our last trip, that he got out of the pool and wouldn't get back in. Personally, I thought it was funny. It's not like he's not used to them. My DH's parents have 6 ducks, along with at least a dozen chickens and 2 geese.
