    Default What is your favorite way to end your vacation?

    I always like going to MK on our last day to ride PotC, HM, BTMRR and get a mickey bar. If my kids aren't with me, I'll make a dash into Epcot to get some schoolbread to take home to them.

    What do you guys do?

    We end every trip with one last viewing of Illuminations! Once it's over we wait in World Showcase until the crowds thin out and then leisurely walk/boat ride back to the Boardwalk (our resort of choice). We usually stop and pick up a sweet treat somewhere along the way. It's just so nice in World Showcase at night with no crowds and the music playing...lovely way to end a visit.

    The last morning before we head back home is always in the MK. We hit all our favorites (BTMRR, Buzz, Pooh, Mine Train, Space, Splash, Speedway)

    I would be crying if this is how I always ended my vacation and now they are getting rid of Illuminations.

    How does FQ compare to POR. I love POR but never wanted to stay at FQ with those giant masks in the dining room. I hear the masks are gone now.

    We like to end our vacation with our last evening at MK. We typically make sure to catch the firework show and stay till the park closes. We always end the trip with breakfast at Kona Cafe and a last spin on the monorail.

    Cinderelley....I haven't been there since the changes in the food court. I was last there during the rehab of Sassagolla Float Works so I am excited to see the changes. I love POFQ because it is a small and intimate resort. I go often as a solo traveler and love the atmosphere. It is quiet and relaxing. My favorite thing about the resort is that it is a short boat ride to Disney Springs. That's where I usually spend my evenings. I can't wait coz I will be down the last week of September, beginning of October for the Epcot food and wine festival.

    Let me know what you think of the changes. I have been debating about booking there for a while.

    Do you feel the pull to go back to MK the next morning after watching the fireworks the night before? I made the executive decision to watch the fireworks from the Poly Beach the night before our last day. Our last day will be at Epcot by popular vote, but I still wanted some MK magic.

    MK, all the way.
    End of the day, ,stop by the Emporium shop one last time. Then, stop by the front rail station, look down main street, and head out.

    We've also stolen someone's idea on here, and occasionally buy a couple of balloons, and hand them to first parents w/ 1 or 2 kids on their way in.

    We generally hit MK for the morning and afternoon finishing with the parade and a few final rides. Stopping by the bakery to grab some Mickey treats to hold me for a few days. Then off to get a dole whip walking around Poly. Finishing with a last view of the Electrical Water Pagent and Fireworks while discussing how I could not possibly have any more shrimp or bread pudding at 'Ohana.

    That is an awesome idea. I may have to try this. Although I have seen how my oldest acts when my DSIL gave him a Star Wars balloon. I may not limit it to kids.
