    We are checking out on 12/23. We don't have park reservations for the last day? Do we need them or will there be things to do for on the last day without buying park tickets for a few hours? It's our first time.

    Hi Christy, welcome to planDisney!

    I rarely go into a theme park on the last day of my Walt Disney World vacation.  Instead, I like to make a breakfast reservation for a character meal prior to heading home. It's a great way to stretch the magic without having to go into a theme park.  My favorite locations to reserve a character breakfast outside of the theme parks are:

    When I visit Walt Disney World during the holidays, I always make time in my schedule to visit the holiday decorations at the other resorts.  It's also a great time to scope out possibilities on where you might like to stay on your next Walt Disney World vacation!  Visiting the giant gingerbread house in the lobby of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a must-do and I absolutely love the gingerbread carousel located in the lobby of Disney's Beach Club Resort.

    When I travel with my husband, he likes to rent a pontoon boat and take us on a relaxing ride around Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon. Disney Springs is also a great place to visit for many unique dining and shopping opportunities. 

    Christy, I hope these ideas help you plan your final day at Walt Disney World.  I hope your holiday vacation is truly magical!
