The best way to end a Disney vacation is to book the next one before you leave... but that's not realistic for my family! Instead, we like to visit our favorite park, Magic Kingdom. I always like to end in this park because 1) it's my favorite and 2) I want the last "memory" to be with Cinderella Castle. There are several things we do on our last day in this park but I make sure we get lots of photographs (with my camera and PhotoPass photographers) and we make those last minute purchases on Main Street.
While we are enjoying our last day at the Magic Kingdom we make a point to take one last ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover. This is my favorite attraction and if I'm lucky, I can always get a few fun shots of Cinderella Castle. We also try to meet as many of the characters we weren't able to meet earlier in the week to get photos and autographs. Even if we already have multiple photos of the family and kids in front of Cinderella Castle, we always get one last shot, or four.
The Emporium, and all the other shops, on Main Street are my favorite stores on property. While it's not the biggest and maybe it doesn't have everything you're looking for, it has the basics and some. This is where I tend to buy the majority of my souvenirs. On our last day we always spend extra time on Main Street shopping. We have to make sure we remembered to buy for family and friends back home. This last stroll also helps us remember if we forgot any of the "must have" purchases for ourselves. We try to wait until the end of the trip, after we've seen it all, to decide on the best souvenirs.
Once we have ridden our favorite attractions one last time, we've made our picture in front of Cinderella Castle and we've hit up all the stores on Main Street, it's that horrible time. It's time to say good bye to my happy place. And in my head, I always sing this:
Now it's time to say goodbye
To all our company
M-I-C, (See you real soon)
K-E-Y, (Why? Because we like you!)
