I can’t end it the way I used to end it, because I am an Epcot girl, and I always ended my trips to WDW with a morning in the MK and the afternoon/evening in Epcot. Stake out a perfect spot for Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, send Wesley to France for chocolate glace, hang out with strangers in the perfect World Showcase gloaming. Buy a plastic cup of Canadian wine. Chat. Buy another cup of wine.
Watch the fireworks. Cry.
Then find an out-of-the-way place to sit and flip through the pictures on your trusty old digital camera while reliving the trip – and let thousands of people stream out of the park while you talk about your favorite moments. Let the kids buy something ridiculous and overpriced like a ball with interchangeable fabric covers. (Which will be forgotten in two weeks and left at the bottom of a closet for the next 4 years.) (WHY??? DO THEY STILL EXIST???)
When the crowds abate, start walking toward MouseGear – slowly, slooooowlyyyy, try to make it last as long as possible, put off leaving as long as you can. Go to MouseGear. Look at everything. Look at everything again. Peruse the price tags carefully. Go ahead and buy the Tinker Bell watch you’ve been looking at all week, anyway.
You’ll be one of the last people out of the park. Dance on the twinkly sidewalk. Lie down under Spaceship Earth and take a picture looking up. Walk even more slowly through the graveyard of tilted monoliths with 2" pictures of strangers in black and silver.
Yeah, I can’t do that any more. I’ll have to come up with a new plan.
