    We like to start off with a meal at Chef Mickey's. It puts us in the Disney mood and it gets most of the Character photos out of the way. We usually end our vacation with a trip to DTD to get our shopping done.

    Always start with park opening at the MK have to say hello to the mouse

    Always end by spending the last few hours saying goodbye to Mickey in the MK

    We always stay on international drive and dont hire a car when we are there so we dont do disney on the first or last day of the holiday - its SeaWorld for us :yes:

    First night we do some quick food shopping then check around the villa that everything is as it should be.

    Last day we stop off at Celebration en route to the airport for one last ice cream sundae and sit on the rockers and then head for the airport... I'm always sad [​IMG]

    :wave: Our first day we usually book a late dinner at the park that has EMH, we usually don't do too much, just stroll around and take it all in , maybe a few rides and back to the resort to start with a bang the next day!! The last day always depends on if we fly or drive. Our flights have been historically early so we just drag ourselves to DME, with a tear in our eyes LOL! If we drive, last minute shopping. Our last full day is usually at the MK.:yes:

    We normally don't 'escape' the airport until around 5pm. So, we just call in at Publix for essentials on the way to a villa, then unpack and maybe have a dip in the pool before bed.

    Our last full day is always at Magic Kingdom. The day we leave, we do DTD check in then spend around 7 hours at Universal Studios. We're usually quite depressed on the day we travel back but we find that Blues Brothers and Beatlejuice always make us smile.
