Leaving day for your Disney vacation can be a sad day, however guests can still squeeze in Disney magic. This includes delicious meals, a sweet treat, capturing memories in a photo shoot and more. Learn 5 perfect departure day activities.
5 Departure Day Activities:
Many Walt Disney World Resorts offer Character dining. A Character meal is your chance to see characters on your departing day with no park ticket needed. Plus, experience the atmosphere of a different Walt Disney World resort. You do not have to be staying at the Resort to dine there. Here are 7 Disney World Restaurants and the characters you can meet, at various locations outside the parks.
Depending what time you are leaving, you may have enough time to enjoy your resort pool on departure day. For Disney Resort guests flying domestically, you are picked up from your resort by Magical Express 3 hours prior to flight time. Disney Resort Pools open at 9am, checkout is at 11am (you can always ask for late checkout, they may or may not be able to accommodate). Children often remember the simple activities, such as swimming at the pool, the most.
There are 2 different miniature golf courses at Walt Disney World. In fact, guests who stay at Disney Resorts should lookout for vouchers included with a package. There will be 1 for each person in reservation. Enjoy a round of miniature golf at either Winter Summerland Miniature Golf (near Blizzard Beach) or Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf (Walt Disney World Swan Hotel). Each have 2 18-hole courses to choose from.
Disney PhotoPass Studio
The Disney PhotoPass Studio in Disney Springs is a hidden gem. There are no reservations required to stop by this studio, open daily and open as late as 10pm. Step inside to capture great photos and memories. Photos at the parks are great, however weather and bright sunshine are not photo friendly all the time. The PhotoPass Studio has amazing backdrops. Even better, if you purchased Memory Maker, all photos are included. Otherwise link to your My Disney Experience to view and purchase individually. What better way to end your vacation than with a photo shoot?
While you are in Disney Springs for the photo shoot grab a cupcake, in a unique way. End your vacation on a sweet note with a cupcake from the cupcake ATM. Find the cupcake ATM outside Sprinkles, in the Town Center area. Or, step inside Sprinkles for a cupcake, cookie or ice cream on the beautiful deck.
