Best Way to End a Disney Vacation

The Best Ways to End a Disney Vacation | Rolling with the Magic

Welcome to the next stop on Magical Blogorail Green. Today we are discussing the best ways to end a Disney vacation.


It’s the worst day of a Disney vacation. The day where you have to say goodbye to the parks and head home. No matter how often you visit leaving is never easy. We’ve tried several things through the years as our last stop in the parks, riding the Walt Disney World Railroad, visiting a favorite restaurant, one last trip to the Main Street Starbucks. But what we have gravitated to our our most recent trips is visiting Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie in the France Pavilion one last time. Here’s why.

It’s Easy to Visit from an Epcot Resort

Of course you can visit no matter where you are staying but it’s a lot easier if you are staying at the BoardWalk, Beach Club, or Yacht Club resorts. Entering from the International Gateway is usually less hectic and crowded and from here it’s a short walk over to the France Pavilion.

No crowds!

By the end of a Disney Vacation one thing you are probably happy about is getting away from the crowds. The France Pavilion is one of my favorite spots but we tend to avoid in the afternoon and early evenings because it is packed. Stopping by on your last morning is so nice since there are fewer people. And if you get there right at 9:00 am you might be the only ones there!

Empty park photos are getting harder and harder to take. I actually don’t mind having guests in my photos, I think it can add to them sometimes, but it is pretty cool when you have a photo of a spot that us usually crowded. And an added bonus in the France Pavilion is getting a shot of the fountain without people sitting all around it. (Or putting their feet in it. Ew.)

Drew visited one morning when I was at a conference to take photos and since it wasn’t busy a Cast Member helped stage some photos. She even brought out an Eiffel Tower from the gift shop for a prop. 🙂

And of course, the food!

Pretty much everything available during the day at Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie is available during the mornings. I tend to gravitate to the croissants and espresso. And the raspberry macarons.

We also usually grab something to eat on the drive home or when we get back to treat our post Disney depression. The easiest thing to get is the box of macarons. They are already boxed and there is enough to share if you want.

So that is our favorite way to end our Disney vacations. What is yours?

    […] Disney World. There are just so many yummy options! We love to visit in the mornings (it’s a great spot for your last day) when it’s not as crowded but it’s also a great spot for lunch, a light dinner, or just […]

    I love eating at Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie too. I think it is a great out of the way place to eat. I have eaten there for lunch but haven’t gone for breakfast. What a great idea!

    This is such a great idea for a last stop! I always visit the France Pavillion, but using it to say goodbye to Disney is perfect.

    Believe it or not, I don’t spend much time in France at Epcot, but I’m regretting it now… How beautiful! And that food… Wow…
