I am thrilled to welcome Karen from KPportraits as our new Wordless Wednesday contributor! As a professional photographer….who loves Walt Disney World….we are honored to be able to share her wonderful vision of Disney with you each week. 🙂
Karen is also preparing to visit Disney World in a few days: hence her feeling just a little like the Tea Cups this week!
Preparing For a Disney Trip: If you are like me, the excitement of Walt Disney World begins before you even arrive! The few days or even weeks before your trip it’s hard to think about anything else! There’s a lot to do to be prepared for your time spent in the parks. It can become overwhelming (especially those traveling with little ones) A few things that have helped me in the past with preparing for a trip are to
- Bring snacks from home to have in the parks (granola bars, trail mix, etc.)
- Make a list of “Must Do’s” and bring it with you!
- Try to get as much sleep the night before your trip! You won’t want to sleep in once you are there!
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.
