O.K. it’s no longer live but let’s get our final day in Orlando complete. The trip overall was fantastic. Yes the was the odd hiccup e.g. No Hogwarts Express, Rescue from Splash Mountain & Technical Faults during Fantasmic BUT overall we had a great Family Holiday.
Like any such trip the last day is dominated with the need to get to the airport. We had Disney Magical Express booked to collect us at 5pm from the hotel. The had been an error here and if I hadn’t queried with the hotel we would have been missed. Despite taking us to the hotel for some reason our reservation had not been carried over. You should be notified the night before so it is worth checking if you don’t receive confirmation. However; a 5pm pickup allowed us the opportunity to have some extra last day fun.
Breakfast was first and a very last trip to the Kilimanjaro Club. We enjoyed our daily breakfast in the lounge but over our last few days the lounge had been very crowded. After breakfast we completed our packing but had to buy an extra case first due to the quantity of gifts we had purchased.
The was some debate on which park we should attend for our very last day. The final decision was EPCOT. We managed to get some Fastpasses and revisited Figment, Nemo & Test Track before we had to go. Sunshine Seasons provided a fine quick service lunch plus we did some extra last-minute shopping.
Our last task was to use up left quick service and snack credits. You can use Quick Service credits for 3 snacks in some locations. We used all remaining credits at the shop in Animal Kingdom Lodge purchasing a variety of candy for our trip home.
In hindsight we did not make best use of our final day in Orlando. Our packing took us longer than expected and we didn’t do that much before returning to the hotel. Our trip home was on time & Virgin provided a much better flight experience than our way out. Certainly on this flight the supplement for premium economy was worth it.
Overall it was an excellent trip and we have plenty of further photographs and videos to share with you. Over coming weeks I will be expanding our Beginners Guide to Walt Disney World plus much more.
