I spent my last day at Disney at Epcot. I did not go to the Hollywood Studios park as that hasn't ever done too much for me. Epcot is a great experience. I did the Space mission to Mars ride, which is pretty intense and the Chevrolet Test Track ride, which is one of my favorites. I also jumped on the Land ride as well as the Living Seas ride. They remain very good rides. For dinner I went back to Downtown Disney. As I had done the first night, I went to the Irish Pub for a beer - a great pub with a wonderful selection of beer and whiskey, as well as good entertainment. Dinner was at the House of Blues. It was ok, but nothing to write home about. I was seated right at my reservation time.
Disney remains a wonderful adventure. The Magic Band system is great and makes your visit easy. You are limited to how many rides per day in each park that you can make a reservation for, as Disney want's to slow you down and stay longer. For the most popular rides, a reservation is essential, as some of the wait times in 'standby' were up to 90 minutes for the coasters. You can also make dinner reservations, character appointments and much more. Plus the Disney Experience iphone and android app, lets you pull up your whole schedule on you smart phone for easy reference. No paper needed. As I said earlier, where you stay in the park determines how much time you spend waiting for and riding on the buses. For me, the resorts where you can walk or take a boat to Epcot, and the Magic Kingdom resorts are the best, but also the more expensive.
