I believe we've had that ME driver before...the name sounds familiar and I remember we had oen that told jokes all of the time too.
Last days just suck. I try to do a lot on the last day so I feel like I spent every minute enjoying my stay.

He was a really good driver. My one there was good too, very friendly just not as outgoing and chatty. I'm hoping I get good drivers again in September!

See if I don't take notes, I forget things. Yes, Nicki got me my Mickey/Minnie print in the sand overlooking the castle at the shop at Downtown Disney (this was a month after we were there and hadn't had it).

I hate last days : / they are the worst!!! We left on an earlier flight and did so much rushing around. I hoping our next trip with our later departure it's easier...

However I am looking forward to your wrap up!!

I hate the last day of a trip. But you made a nice leasurely day out of it. I like later flights like that so you can take your time getting to the airport.

Thanks for all the pictures of POP. I haven't stayed there since 2010 and seeing all the pictures made me miss it!

You made good use of your last day at Disney. I always try to drag out every last second that I can get before we have to drive off Disney property. It sounds like the trip home was uneventful at least.

My flight in September is earlier, but I still won't be getting on DME until 11ish. I don't like feeling rushed the departure day.

Wrap-up should be today it tomorrow!

I like to have time the last morning to see or do anything outside the parks that I hadn't done yet.

I really love POP. I'm sure I will love CBR from all I know, but its nice to know I have POP to stay at I'm the future if I don't.

It was pretty uneventful. I was on the aisle seat so I couldn't take pictures so I read.

Always the saddest update to any TR...

It looks like you made the most of your travel day though. I love the food court, and the resort in general, at Pop Century. So I guess if you do have to leave, spending some time at DTD and then hanging around POP is a nice way to spend the day.

They just changed the whole menu at POP Century in May and from what I have read its not well liked. They got rid of a lot of the favorites, like all the Moms Night Out meals.

You always have to leave eventually, and since its a sad day I figure I should try to keep busy and not think about leaving.

Steph, I love the wrap-up...well done. I'm glad you enjoyed Coral Reef...that one gets such a mixed bag of reviews and we have loved our last two visits.

Love the pics you selected as your favorites.

You did a great job on the TR!

When I saw Captain EO on the list of new attractions, I just knew it would also be on the no interest in doing again list as well. Really, why did they even bring it back??

I was a little bit blown away by your list of characters. I knew you met a lot of them during the party nights, but I guess when you see the whole list in one place it is a little bit more impressive. Nicely done!

The pictures are fantastic. You had a lot of very good options to choose from. I truly enjoyed reading about your trip and seeing the pictures you were able to capture.
