    Alright. I expect you to skip down Main St with me at some point.

    Just talking about the last day makes me sad. We have ended almost all the trips the same way: we start it very early in the morning at the Magic Kingdom, then take a last monorail trip to Epcot and finish in the World Showcase and watch Illuminations, then shop at MouseGear and head home with tears in our eyes.

    One year, I got the bright idea of taking a late airplane trip back so we could have breakfast in the Magic Kingdom and then return to the hotel and get on the bus and go. That was the worst ever! Leaving the Magic Kingdom on a beautiful, sunny day at noon, while thousands of people are pouring in to enjoy their day and we have to go in the other direction and go home was so incredibly sad that we all agreed never again!

    Me skip. Ha.

    I really like the last day, to be a MK day. With a final stop at the Emporium.

    I'm following this for ideas. I USED to have a last day strategy-it was to enter the most convenient park, then on the way out be sure to get my hand stamped (so you can guess how long ago that strategy was). That was my way of telling myself and WDW, "I'll be back!" Now I just make sure I get something from WDW to eat on the plane-either a sandwich from BCMarketplace, a pastry from Les Halles, a yummy snack from the Caramel Kuchen, etc.

    Our last day at a theme park we usually are at MK, lingering through the emporium on the way out after the fireworks for last minute souvenirs. Then the next day (travel day) we go to Downtown Disney (OK Disney Springs, now) for more last chance souvenirs and finally for sundaes at Ghirardelli's just before hitting the road.

    We usually try to do Magic Kingdom on our last day. That is the plan when we go in August. 38 days and a wake up!

    Used to take late flights out, so would spend last morning in Downtown Disney/Disney Springs. Now, it seems to be so much of a pain to get back and forth to Disney Springs, I just skip it and get earlier flights out.

    Last park day/night....Typically spend morning (early part of the day) in MK, catching anything I missed or want to do again. Afternoon/evening is at EPCOT, specifically World Showcase for food, drinks, and Illuminations. Now that Illuminations is finishing its run, I may have to rethink that and reverse the park order. We shall see what the new show turns out to be like.

    Either way, I will be closing a park on my last night!
