Karen grew up in the Boston area and traveled to Disney World many times with her parents and sister. Always staying at the Fort Wilderness Cabins gave the trips a feeling of a home away from home. It also started the tradition of attending the Hoop Dee Doo Review on each trip! Somehow that show sparked her interest in the Disney College Program. Which she did in the fall of 2002, working as a hostess @ Captain Jacks in Downtown Disney. Now as an adult, Karen finds herself traveling to the parks on a yearly basis! Photography has always been a hobby of Karen’s, but over the past few years it has become her passion. It’s even taken her to her favorite place! The Make a Wish Foundation sent a family to Disney for a week and Karen was lucky enough to be their photographer of choice! She got to tag along and photograph their memories being made. She hopes to get that experience again someday! You can find more of Karen’s photography on her site www.KPportraits.com.

    I recall staying at an off-Disney property for a business trip to Orlando 6 years ago in ’11. The venue was the Coronado resort, but because the hotel rates were beyond the government per diem, I had to stay at the Best Western Lake Buena Vista instead. Because of that indignity, I couldn’t take advantage of the free Disney buses, including the Disney Magic Express (DME)–I took the Mears Shuttle instead. So I took daily taxi rides to and from the conference venue, which was a bigger expense than food, but I was glad to get reimbursed for that expense. Near the end of the conference, I decided to visit my favorite park, Epcot, and took advantage of the Disney buses going to that park. But I knew the next time I visited the parks, I would stay at a on-property resort to take advantage of the free buses and the DME. Three years later, I did just that, staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort in ’14, the Swan in May ’16, and Pop Century Resort last December.
