Caroline Baggerly: Tuesday Columnist, Euphoric Blogger

Favorite Disney World Rides: Soarin’ & Splash Mountain
Favorite World Showcase Countries: Canada and France

Caroline is a Disney research hound.  She uses any excuse to go to Disney World.  She Travels to Disney almost monthly with her sons, husband or solo.  She even ran the Princess Half Marathon as an excuse for a trip.  She’s now a runner thanks solely to Disney.  Her favorite actives at Disney World include: absorbing the atmosphere, staying club level, eating delicious food & watching the shows.  When she drives onto Disney property she still claps her hands and sings “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”.  The thrill she gets from “just being there” is worth the price of admission.  If forced to chose, Epcot is her favorite park.  Caroline’s mantra: “Disney is in the details.”  Caroline is a big kid.
