We've done character breakfasts and/or last minute gift shopping. If on dining plan, we go to resort food court or DTD to use meal or snack credits. We have a 9-10 hour drive, so it depends on how worn out we are or how well we planned for the last day.

It's our first meal when we get INTO the world. Don't feel like we've arrived until we have eaten at Earl's.

Have been ending our stays at BCV, and taking eve flights back. So we send our bags and get our boarding passes-then have the whole day for walking the EPCOT countries and getting lunch, then hanging at SAB and beach area til its time to catch the ME.

We always start 3 days before we leave 2 nights before we leave we make sure we see wishes and do MK. The day before we leave we do HS if anyone has any last minute things they want to do there, and then head to Epcot for the day and we watch IllumiNations. Then the day we leave, the kids and I get to MK as fast as we can while my DH waits for bellhop to get the luggage. In the meantime we are running all over trying to get in as many rides as we can before my DH meets us at 12 for lunch at The Plaza. Then we ride TTA one last time for my son, grab anything we need from the stores and get a bucket of popcorn for the plan ride. We jump on the monorail, run to Epcot just to walk through it one last time, and since we usually at BWV it helps. We walk slowly while my DH runs to BW to get our carry ons. He then Proceeds to call me every 5 mins asking me where are we to hurry up, he is so afraid we will miss ME. by this point he's mad and I stop at BW bakery for our last coffee and pastries for the airport ride. Guess what, I make it to the stop before ME, EVERYTIME I even have time to stop for a bathroom break

This yr we staying an extra day and leaving first thing Monday morning. So I am going to feel lost Just hope the bakery is open before we leave. I have to give my DH something to worry about

I do have to admit before I end this, we did miss ME ONCE this past NOV. not because of me though. We were staying at SSR and my DD decided to do COP before leaving MK. She didn't make it in time to get the bus back to SSR with us. So we get on and she catches the next bus. ME did get there before us, SSR buses were sooo slow then. ME did wait but because my DD was on the other bus behind us he couldn't wait any longer because her bus driver wouldn't drop her off first before he made his stops around the resort.

The front desk was nice enough to pay for a cab for us to the airport. Just to mention yes, we gave an hour traveling time, it just didn't work out this time Our plan works best when we stay at BWV

I usually fly out early morning so my ritual is to spend the last evening at Magic Kingdom and befoe leaving, go up to the top of the train station and look down Main Street, just soaking it all in.

If we leave later in the day I like to do one last meal of Disney food & I'll book a breakfast!

We always do Earl of Sandwich as soon as we get in. Maybe we'll do it last thing before we leave, as well because we always end with DTD.

The night before we leave we spend it shopping on Main Street and end with a picture in front of the castle at night. The last day usually is at EPCOT because we stay in that area. We love its food and shopping.

We hate to leave.

Always book a character breakfast, usually Crystal Palace, and spend our last day at MK taking it slow and repeating all our favs.
We leave as soon as we check out, so I run around the resort taking all the last minute pictures I haven't taken all week. Take one last stroll through the gift shop making sure I have one of everything....then cry.

We always go to MK on the day we leave. We soak up as much of the magic as we can until it is time to go. When it is time to go I have to take a long look at the castle and the waterworks begin lol
