Today riding the bus in the dark TO the MK was a little different but fun! The park was really empty..more so than the normal 8am entry. I'm assuming this new hour is due to MNSSHP closing the park at 7:30. Did all my favorite rides and then some again! Hit the shops and then caught the bus back to the BW. Had an amazingly sunny day with no humidity. Spent a good 3.5 hours at the pool then went up and did a load of laundry. Don't want to leave it all for tomorrow.

Dinner was at Raglan Road again. Love that place. Tomorrow I do F&W for my final evening.

Now, heading somewhere... not sure where I'll wind up. But I'll let you all know later! Ha-ha

Good morning Boardwalk. How I'm going to miss you.

Alas, today my last full day at WDW. I think I'll head back to the MK for a little then shoot over to the Studios to see a friend who is a CM. Come back for my last chance at the pool then pack. This way I won't have to do it tonight. One last trip around the World tonight to sample more of the goodies being offered and then that's it!

Early ME pickup tomorrow ; 7:15 so I'll probably finish this up back in NY!

I'm freezing!!! Hahaha...when we landed this afternoon it was 45 degrees!!! Where's that warm Floridian sun???

Yes; I'm home. Back in "Da Bronx" watching the Yankees instead of "Stacey" telling me all about the "Must Do's" in WDW!!

My last day in "my happy place" consisted of getting up early and making it into the Magic Kingdom for the 8:00 am rope drop. I literally walked on just about every ride in the park!! I even made it to the Jungle Cruise. I haven't been on that ride in over 20 years!!! Had lunch at the Plaza; love their Club Sandwich and then headed back for some last day sun at the pool. And...while at the pool I had an oldie but goodie....a Rollercoaster Meltdown. It's not on the board anymore but "Joe" knew immediately what to do. It's a Pina Colada with a shot of Meyers floating on top. It's sooooo good.

Later that afternoon after putting the laundry on and packing I headed to Epcot for a last walk around the World. Boy was it packed!!! Quite a difference from earlier in the week. Didn't have anything that I hadn't had before and actually it was just a little too crowded for me so I ducked into La Hacienda. They seated me almost immediately. Had the house salad (I'd eat that as a main meal if it was larger) and the Tilapia.

Hopped on the bus to DTD for a last chance look for anything that I may want to bring home and looked into a few shops that I missed during the week. Love the Christmas shop and Pantry but nothing this trip really called my name.

Since I had an early ME Pickup (7:00 am) my evening ended a tad early but I still managed to get in the fireworks. Can't miss that on your last night!

This morning, as I sat on my balcony, in the dark drinking my last cup of Disney coffee, I thought about the wonderful week I had. I don't really get sad anymore when I have to go home because I know I'll be back. It's just that it goes so darn fast!! We sit here and plan and countdown the days and then.....POOF!!! The trip is over.

So, until I begin the next countdown to my happy place I'll continue to dream and re-live the wonders of Disney through all of your trip reports!! Thank you all for keeping me company on my journey.

And for all of you there now, have a fantastic time!!! I look forward to hearing all about your vacation!!

Thanks for the trip report. We will be there this time next week at the BCV. I'm at the "too excited to sleep" phase. I have already booked a Boardwalk view room for April so I have something to look forward to when we come home!

Oh I so know that feeling!!

Next month I'll book my Boardwalk view room for next October. Not sure yet if I'll come down late spring/early summer. Got some things going on. But planning the next trip really helps pass the time!

Have a fantastic trip!!

Linda! Your vacation sounded like a dream. Next time, I think I will go solo. I enjoyed it so much the one time I did it and feel a need for that freedom again. I'm so glad the weather cooperated!

Till the next countdown, my friend......

OH...and sorry about the Yankees. At least they made it to the ALCS. My Nats blew a 6 run lead in game 5 of the NLDS......

Gosh, I wish I had realized you would be there when I was (Oct. 9 - 16) so we could meet up. Our weather was perfect, wasn't it! Not one drop of rain our entire week and mild temps day and night.
I agree that it is hard to leave but it is the DVC "I'll be back" that makes it easier.
Thanks for the report!

Oh Jean I didn't realize it either! Well we'll have to coordinate better next year. Our weather was absolutely fantastic. I told my husband that this was probably the nicest Florida weather I've seen in all the years going there. Hope you had a good time!
