    Re: Supreme Court decision on Segway lawsuit

    And prices rise because Disney has to have an army of lawyers to protect themselves.

    Disney's prices don't rise for that reason. Disney continually raises prices no matter if they have five lawyers or 500. If all lawsuits against them suddenly disappeared, you wouldn't see their theme park prices decrease a dime: Disney's M.O. is to maximize profits at all times, whether their cost of doing business goes up or down.

    Re: Supreme Court decision on Segway lawsuit

    Having been on a Segway, I can only imagine the accidents that are going to occur from people who are not VERY familiar with the machines operating them. They are very sensitive and not particularly easy to control in close quarters. Yes, you can pick up general operation of it quickly, but manuevering it in the crowds you typically experience in a Disney Park is not something a beginner will be able to do.

    Re: Supreme Court decision on Segway lawsuit

    That was my thought, too. They're great in wider-open areas, but in crowds it seems like it would be kind of a nightmare. Stopping and starting all the time, able to only got a tiny bit forward at a time, with people stepping in front of you, so you have to stop again...

    I think a person would really have to need one in order to deal with the hassle.
