The crowd started to move at 7:30 and we were led to the Tree of Life.

After standing here for a minute or 2, we continued on to Pandora.

Obviously we were rope dropping FoP.
365125

We didn’t have to wait real long. I didn’t take any pictures inside the queue, but we were on in about 25-30mins.

365126

We looked around a bit inside Windtraders.
365127

We saw a bored looking PP photographer, so we gave him something to do.

This was my 1st time seeing Pandora in person during the day. Even though it was cloudy, everything was still beautiful!

Up next: More AK

I'm so sorry for the loss of your Maggie. My mom had to put my childhood playmate, Prince, to sleep while I was away at college because of cancer. It was horrible even though we knew the end was coming close. I thought I should've been there. I only hope that my doggie soulmate today, Pippy, dies peacefully in his sleep. Because I don't think I could ever watch him suffer with cancer and sometimes I doubt whether I have the strength to make the decision of euthanasia. Your Maggie went very peacefully and that's all we can ask for with our loved ones.

I still need to frame mine from last year. We got dumbo.
There’s a Dumbo one?! All we’ve ever gotten is 3 Mickeys (4 now) and 1 one Minnie.

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember losing my cat during the fall semester of my freshman year and it was awful. My thoughts are with you & your family ❤
Thanks Becca. I really do appreciate it.

Thank you. Although I’m completely heartbroken, I’m glad it happened the way it did and that she didn’t have to battle with cancer.

There was still 20mins left of EMH. Our plan was to head over to Dinoland and hop on DINOSAUR before the park opened to non resort guests.

365184
This might be my favorite carving.

365185
Ok, the buffalo is pretty cool.

365186
The kangaroos were out in full force!

The posted wait time was 15min but we waited closer to 20.

365191
The gallery was kind of packed.

EPCOT continued

My destination was the Yorkshire County Fish Shop, somewhere I hadn’t eaten in 3 or 4 trips. (used to be a regular) At the beginning of March, they added a new item to the menu and I couldn’t wait to try it.

Chicken and Mushroom Pie (with chips)
View attachment 362769
Ok y’all, this thing was sooo freaking good!

This was another item that AJ from DFB had been hyping up, and for good reason. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but this thing was huge and stuffed full of chicken, mushrooms, gravy, and flavor! It also came with a lot of chips. (almost couldn’t finish them all) This addition is exactly what a lacking YCFS needed! For the price and the amount of food you get, it’s definitely a better deal than the fish ‘n’ chips. Hope it’s permanent!

I grabbed a nearby table and told L where I was. She arrived a few minutes later with her croissant sandwich from Les Halles. I can’t remember which kind she had, but she said it was good.

After we ate, we strolled through the U.K. pavilion before getting our spot for IllumiNations.

The viewing area on the island between the U.K. and France that’s usually roped off for FP and dinner/dessert parties was vacant!

View attachment 362773
We had the perfect spot!

The area slowly began to fill up as people realized there was nobody over here, but it wasn’t a large crowd.

Doing the Lord’s work.

It was a little cold and windy, but things warmed up when the torches came on.

It looks like the tree behind the torch is on fire. :hilarious:

It was still 30mins until showtime, but the pre-show music was setting the tone and I was getting excited.

Next up: IllumiNations overload!
We lucked into that same spot for Illuminations in 2014. Best view we ever had. It was my favorite performance of Illuminations. Glad you had such a great spot for your farewell.

Finally all caught up with this one. First off, I am so sorry for the loss of Maggie! Losing a pet is never easy as they are a special part of your family. It's good to know that she didn't suffer for even a moment, and what a beautiful grave site for her!

I am loving all of your pictures - and that chocolate mousse from Sunshine Seasons looks amazing! I've added it to my list for June! :)

It’s a great spot and your line of vision isn’t really blocked by anything.
So sorry for the loss of your sweet Maggie. It is truly heartbreaking to lose a pet.
Thank you.

Thank you for your condolences.

Definitely get the Oreo chocolate mousse if it’s still there! If it’s not, there’s usually some form of chocolate mousse at Seasons year round.

After DINOSAUR, we headed over to Harambe for our 1st FP of the day.

365338365339

Before we went on KS, L wanted to stop at Kusafiri and get some coffee. The line was insanely long, but L was adamant that she had to have her coffee. While she waited in line, I decided to hit up Gorilla Falls.

365341
:( It felt very weird not going to Rafiki’s. It’s suppose to reopen soon. I hope they didn’t change it too much.

365342
You can’t see it, but there’s an okapi way in the back.

365343
The zebras were actually out!

The gorilla area was crowded as usual, so I moved on after a few minutes.

One of the CMs was talking about how important it is for us to take care of the Earth and to not abuse our natural resources. He went on to say that in order to promote a greener planet, the medals for the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year are being made from recycled cell phones and computers. I think that’s really cool!

365354365355365356365357365358

L texted me and said that she had her coffee. It was perfect timing because I was exiting GF.

We met in front of KS.
365359
It was time for a safari!

The FP line looked longer than it really was. We only waited 10mins.

365360
Row 1! And yes, that dude looks little creeped out. :hilarious:

Next up: More KS

I can’t remember our guide’s name, but he was very meh and didn’t like to stop so people could take pictures. He also wasn’t real knowledgeable about the animals either. Whenever someone would ask him a question, 9 times out of 10 his response would be “I’m not sure” or “that’s a great question” then immediately change the subject.

I apologize in advance if my pictures aren’t the greatest, but you can blame our guide for that.

Here’s some greater kudu
