We all know that Disney pays great attention to design and detail….and yet we often are so focused on the “stars” of a ride or attraction, that it is easy to miss the background or scenery. Disney creates drama like no one else: staff are Cast Members, and they are not at work but are on stage. So next time you check out a ride or attraction, look beyond the main event, and check out the background: the stage that has been set for you is always quite amazing!
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!
