Call me crazy, but I think the burning of Rome is one of the best smells in all of WDW.

Since his M&G is close by, we went over to see Pluto after SE.

L’s moment with Pluto wasn’t so “magical”. He accidentally bumped into her. A few seconds later she heard a voice say “Oops! Sorry about that”. :banghead: I don’t care how old the guest is, you never break character!

Earlier, I snagged a FP for Soarin’, so I headed to the Land.

Up next: Soarin’!
You're not crazy, Rome smells best when burning. Of course, I've never smelled it not burning... Lol

This is why I could never be a character 🤣 They would have to muzzle me in there or I would accidentally talk all the time.

So hard though.. basic human instinct to say sorry!
One would think so, but sadly in today’s world, it’s almost rare for someone to apologize for something like that.

:hilarious::hilarious:

I know that it can be hard sometimes for the performers to not slip up and speak, but it’s one of my Disney pet peeves!

Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers. It really does mean a lot to me and my family and we really do appreciate it.

Everything happened so fast. I feel like I’m living in a blur. M ran to the grocery store for literally 10-15mins because Maggie had gotten comfortable and was sleeping. When she came back, she noticed that she wasn’t breathing. She immediately ran outside and screamed for help and our neighbor, who’s a retired veterinarian, rushed over. She tried everything. Massaging her heart, making sure her airways were clear, and trying to resuscitate her. It was too late. She was already gone.

I was too upset to drive, so my dad came up here to Clemson and brought me home. L was up here too visiting a friend, but she waited and drove home yesterday morning. She was actually the one who broke the news to me. We stopped by my house so I could check on M and see Maggie one last time. I was staying at my dad’s because I emotionally couldn’t handle staying at my house Saturday night.

I’d never sobbed so much before in my life. She looked happy though. No cone of shame. She was laying on her favorite rug in our den, wrapped up like a burrito in her favorite butterfly blanket, with her right ear flipped back, which was her trademark. I think that’s the way she wanted it to be.

My dad brought me home Sunday morning and helped me dig her grave. That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Where I live, we don’t have dirt under our grass, instead we have that hard, red clay. (one of Maggie’s favorite treats :hilarious:) That stuff is a pain to dig. Seriously though, she’d go outside and pile that stuff in then get sick 30mins later. But she was hard-headed and stubborn and would never learn. :hilarious:

Finding a casket was a bit of an ordeal too. The 1st one was too small, so M had to go back to the funeral home. Maggie was supposed to be a full-blooded miniature, but we don’t think that was the case at all. Her structure was much bigger than a miniature and her weight was always in the standard range. She wasn’t overweight, she was just a big dog. We think that one of her parents must have been a full-blooded standard. The 2nd casket was big enough and M and L prepared it.

Not to get sidetracked, but I have a funny yet meaningful story. When Chaney, our dog before Maggie, past away, I went to the funeral home to help pick out the casket. I was 5 at the time and my POTC obsession was starting. We were led to the storage room where they kept all the caskets. After looking around I said, “Man, look at all those treasure chests! Jack Sparrow would have a time in here!” :hilarious: The next Sunday at church, M told our preacher what I had said. He replied, “He’s right you know. What we put inside caskets is treasure”. ❤ I’ve started to think he might’ve watched CotBP the night before. :hilarious: “Not all treasure is silver and gold mate”. But regardless, he’s correct.

I don’t feel like I can go into much more detail, but her burial went well. It was emotionally hard, but it was peaceful.

Once again, thank y’all for all the love and support. Y’all don’t know how much it means to us. There’s nothing like my WDWMagic family. You guys and gals are the best.
I’m so remarkably sorry for your loss. This is my biggest fear. I admire how strong you are through all of this. You’re in my prayers.

Sorry for being absent the last few days. There have a lot of things going on lately.

L had a FP for Figment, so she went to do that while I headed to Soarin’.

L was still waiting to get on Figment when I got off of Soarin’. Apparently it went down not too long after she got in line. I saw that a FP for the Seas was available and the time window was only a few minutes away from being open, so I grabbed it and headed on over.

I didn’t stay and look around in the aquarium or anything. L texted me and said that she was finally about to get on Figment, so I headed to Imagination.

As I was walking over, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty were out between the Land and Imagination taking pictures with guests. I thought this was highly unusual since they both have a M&G in WS. Anyways, there was a woman that was taking a picture of Snow White with her iPhone. (I wonder where this is going? :hilarious:) The CM that was with Snow White went up to her and said, “Excuse me ma’am, can you put your phone away? Snow White doesn’t like apples.” :hilarious: I might’ve laughed out loud a little bit. (I thought it was funny) So yeah, that’s how I got my title.

I met L outside of Imagination. It was 4:45 and there was still a lot that we wanted to do in WS, so we headed in that direction.

Up next: More EPCOT

Y’all, I know I’ve been slacking, but this past week has been rough. It all started Saturday night when my grandfather (M’s dad) fell and broke his hip. We spent most of Mother’s Day in the hospital and have been going back and forth from there and my grandparents house. We finally came home Tuesday afternoon and were exhausted. We’ve been resting up because we’ll be needed this weekend and most likely next week too.

On top of that, Monday was officially 1 month since Maggie past away, and it was also her 14th Birthday. It was not an easy day at all. It’s finally started to sink in that she’s gone and yours truly has been going through a lot of boxes of tissues lately.

Hope y’all understand.

@Captain Barbossa , sorry to hear about your grandfather's hip. Let's hope he will recover soon. it's good that he has family around to help him through this period. And as for Maggie, a pet is a major loss in a family. I can understand how after a month or so, it's really sunk in that she's no longer around. I wish you and your family well during this difficult time.

You need to look after you first. Take care.
Hope your grandfather is doing ok.

Thank y’all for the kind words and encouragement. My grandfather had his surgery on Monday and has already been moved to rehab. So far, he is doing well and might actually be able to come home earlier than expected.

I finally get it!
Snow White doesn’t like APPLES!
Ha Ha Ha😂
I’m not gonna lie, it took me a minute to figure it out. :hilarious:

Beautiful photos!
Thanks! The Victoria Gardens might be my favorite spot in WS.

Next up was O Canada. The next show was in 10mins, so we didn’t have to wait long. I absolutely love O Canada, and each time I see it, my desire to visit @amjt660 ‘s homeland greatens. I’m interested to see what the rumored new film will be like. I know a lot people don’t like him as the narrator, but I hope they keep Martin Short.

After O Canada, our next stop was the U.K. pavilion.

We went inside the Sportsman’s Shoppe so L could get something for a friend.

I wandered around outside the store and saw this.

EXPOSED WIRING?! 😲 ARE YOU FREAKIN’ SERIOUS?! THE MAGIC IS RUINED! BAD SHOW DISNEY! Jk :hilarious: I was surprised though. Disney usually hides stuff like this pretty well.

We went in a few more stores then headed to France.

My time to hit up some outdoor kitchens was running out. There were 2 items left that I wanted to get, so I decided to check off the 1st one.

Fleur de Lys: Canard Confit a la Provençal (Braised Duck Confit with Tomatoes and Olives on Polenta)
7D9D4383-8E77-43C2-8508-25E7518B58AF.jpeg
O. MY. GOD. Words can’t describe how good this was, and the portion was huge! They always have some form of duck at Fleur de Lys during F&G and it’s always incredible, but this is the absolute best I’ve had so far! The duck was flavorful and tender, the polenta (French cornbread) was good and sweet, and the tomato sauce was fantastic! I wish I could go back rn just so I can get this! Fleur de Lys never fails to please my taste buds, and that is why it is my favorite F&G outdoor kitchen.

Up next: More WS
