We always end our trips with MK; we love the classic rides and characters you can find at MK. There is the most to do there balancing rides and wait times. The bakery has tons of great snacks that can double as souvenirs. And it is usually the park closest to our resort.
We’ve done both. Frankly, either way I always feel sad, because it’s the last night. However, I think I prefer Epcot. There are more options for a nice TS meal. Illuminations always gives us a feeling of belonging to the people of this planet, with those special Disney touches. We like the projections on Spaceship Earth at the end of the evening. Then there are the cast members who stand outside around the fountain and wave goodnight with all those character hands. I love to see World Showcase all lit up at night, too. All of it just seems so nice, so welcoming, and I guess I think it has more of a calm feeling about it.
Don’t get me wrong. I love MK at the end of a day. I just think, for me, Epcot is the place I prefer at the end of a trip.
We use to end at MK but we've switched to Epcot for a few reasons. I don't want to say MK has too much but there are just so many rides we like and ride over and over,it's hard to say "let's end with this ride" because then it's always "one more ride" and then we end up there later than we want and then it's a pain to get out of the park with needing to get in another line. At Epcot, we still enjoy the rides and do them multiple times but it's much easier to have a ride that's the "final" ride of the trip and when we walk out of the park, we're at the car. No waiting for something and being bummed out we're "stuck" at the park and can't do anything. We also tend to leave Epcot earlier than we do the MK. Epcot also seems to be a lower key park for us too so it's kind of a "relaxing" way to end the trip. It's not so much go, go, go as at the MK.
You can't really go wrong with either park but that's our reasoning for doing Epcot over the MK.
For me it's almost always Epcot. Usually the morning with a few attractions and then a TS lunch around noon in the WS. Always want to end my trip with a nice lunch in the WS and there are so many options. I take an evening flight home and just a great way to end your trip.
