ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - A California appeals court says Disneyland Resort can keep a ban on Segways at its parks.
The Orange County Register says the court ruled last week against a woman with muscular dystrophy who sued for discrimination four years ago because she couldn't use a Segway at Disneyland.
The 4th District Court of Appeal says Disney showed that the stand-up, two-wheeled scooter was unsafe to use inside the crowded Anaheim park.
Disney has since developed its own four-wheel standing scooter for use in the park.
