I'm not sure what books you were looking at but the ones I've been checking out all week have very accurate information about New Fantasyland and other changes for 2013. Most of the changes had already been made to New Fantasyland in 2012 before the books were published. Also, if it was announced that the Segway exhibit in Innoventions was to close in Fall of 2012, it would have been reflected in the 2013 books. That's why I'm saying that it must have been a sudden decision.

Are people still seeing rolling cancellations on the Segway tour? I wouldn't expect to hear anything yet from Disney as we're not vacationing until August but it would be good to hear from others

I called again this past weekend about our tour scheduled for March 24 and was told that we should be expecting a call about a cancellation soon. Its less than a week away now and though I KNOW it will be cancelled, I am confused as to why the CM I spoke to, saying it was not going to run, wouldn't have canceled it and tried to re-book me on something else. I will only be there on a day trip really, so scheduling another tour isn't something I would want to do so I am willing to wait and see what their response will be. Strange.
I hope they run it again someday, I was really looking forward to it!

I was there last week and saw a segway tour. Not sure who was on it, but there were about 10 people.

Hmmm...I wonder what that was about. Maybe they are just finishing up some that they had booked?

I doubt it, they cancelled them all without notice and refunded everyone.

Could be some sort of test for re-introducing the Segway tours though, if they've resolved whatever issue it was which stopped them?

I was thinking the same thing reading some of these posts. That they wait until 2 weeks away to cancel isn't good for rebooking another tour and getting people to spend money. I get that they're probably trying to make money on the interest before giving it back to you, but c'mon...

From what I understood a couple weeks ago, they had cancelled all of the tours through May 1. Maybe they meant April 1? Are there still April tours that haven't been cancelled? Are there April tours that have?

They were definitely cancelling them in batches. And they weren't doing it too far ahead. So the assumption from that was that they might come back on and they didn't want to cancel just in case.

If someone actually saw a tour running in Epcot that bodes well. mine is May 3.

My April 29th tour was cancelled several weeks ago and the money refunded to my credit card. It would be nice if they did reinstate the tours to give those of us who had tours cancelled a chance to rebook before opening it up to the general public.

I though Disney had announced they were getting rid if the tour and creating a new one. Maybe they are play testing the new one.

Make sure that you aren't looking a last year's news about a new tour.

Yes StitchesGr8Fan look at the date of that announcement. When this first popped up without any other sites reporting it I found probably the same article and though I found the answer.
