We just about always leave from Epcot. Since we have a rental car, I find it the most predictable as to how long it takes to leave the park (MK would be the most unpredictable).

Once I pass under Spaceship Earth, there's no looking back...

Oh yeah, and going into MCO is torture. All the sad faces are sitting out at the terminals watching the arrivals come in with their happy faces.

We pack up the car and then drive to DTD (which seems different since we most likely have not driven our car since we arrived), try to find a park at DTD (which is sometimes difficult), then do some shopping and end with letting all the kids pick out candy at Goofy's candy shop for the ride home.
One year my husband bought the Wishes soundtrack CD and we unwrapped it and put it in the CD player as we were driving off property - that really brought the tears!!

We always go to MK on our last day and eat lunch at the Plaza. It's a tradition that started on our Disneymoon. We were tired of soybean burgers the entire trip so we ate there on our last day and it has stuck with us. I also take last looks at the castle and "leak" around the eyes on the way out.

We're another family doing the DTD and EOS... love the Cannonballs! Then sadly say goodbye to Mickey as we hop back in the car on our way home.

I take a cab to Olivia's for a mid-morning breakfast. I take the water taxi over to DTD and do some leisurely shopping.

I wander over to SSR and The Turf Club for a late lunch on the patio; just snacks.

I take the water taxi back to POR and sit in the rocking chairs facing the marina, read, and listen to the water taxi and wait to got on the ME bus at 3 pm. I make that long walk to the ME with the big long face and look back one more time with a tear in my eye.

And I say, only 357 days to go.

Well last time (first trip in 28years) I cried under the exit on MK. Doh! We also got postcards stamped at the news stand and mailed them off for fairy godmother mail, so it ended on a positive note!

Seriously if anyone could see my face on the magical express ride to the airport, they would probably run away! I was really angry and upset leaving last year - I got very depressed. But then I started planning our next trip and daydreamed about just driving to the airport one day and hopping a plane to spend the day at the MK - and then I feel a little better. Now my next trip is coming up soon and I couldn't be more excited!

This year I booked a later flight home so we can go to MK, ride the haunted mansion, and get a farewell dole whip float

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

Last time we did DTD before leaving for the airport. When I saw the "See you real soon!" sign on the wrong side of the arch it was sad

This is what I look like on DME on the way back to the airport LOL!!!


We always do our last minute MK circuit (Pirates, Splash, Haunted Mansion at the very least), then run over to Aloha Isle for Dole Whip Floats before heading back to the resort to catch DME
