Depends on where we are staying. We eat at Paradiso when we stay at POR. We started a few years ago and DDIL especially loves it. Food is good and it is easy to get to and back. If we are at BWV we eat at Big River. Love the nachos and the cheesecake. Haven't stayed anyplace else in a few years but if we were at a different resort my answer might be different. LOL.

This year we are wrapping up our two week vacation at Fultons, followed by some DTD shopping for Christmas.

LTT for lunch. And then we leave to drive back home around 1:30 or so.

We always have Kona Cafe for breakfast on our way out. We love the food and the Poly so it makes us happy even if we are getting ready to leave the magic.

We like doing Chef Mickey's for a late breakfast on the last day of the trip before we depart.

Since we usually leave around 3-4 PM, we have a character breakfast inside MK. It doesn't matter where--just characters, somewhere inside MK. It just makes us happy for that one last special Disney thing.

Last year we did Cape May Cafe for breakfast on our departure day and it was fantastic! This year we're doing Boma for our last breakfast... can't wait!

We don't usually make a plan for our last day, but it seems we end up in the Epcot area for lunch most of the time. Sometimes we'll stop in to Big River Grille, sometimes the Cabana Bar at the Dolphin.

I like to do a character meal on our last day. On our first trip, 2008, I didn't schedule one that day and really regretted it. So in 2010 we had breakfast at Ohana (even though we were staying at CBR and getting there was a pain!) For our next trip I'm tentatively planning on Crystal Palace for lunch, right before we head back to the resort.

We always seem to end up at Earl of Sandwich in DTD. I think mostly because I'm a neurotic freak and don't like doing the parks on departure day.

This year, we'll be at AKV so I'm thinking maybe the Mara (AKV's CS).

Fish and Chips at England's counter service. We are usually at an Epcot hotel so we start the day at MK and then monorail it over to Epcot for one last Soarin ride and then a pint and some Fish and Chips for lunch. Then back to the resort for the ME bus.

Night before we leave and morning

We eat the night before we leave at the Yachtsman and the morning we leave at the Poly at the Kona Cafe. One year we didn't and the whole trip home we were depressed...

We usually end with Kona or the Wave for lunch. Kona is my favorite and the Wave is my dsis fav. Both are a very relaxing way to end our trip.
